I have Epilepsy (controlled with medications), Pre-diabetes, High cholesterol, High blood pressure (all controlled with medications), and I am getting weaned off of depression meds because of side effects and I don't need them any longer.

This year, I am going to lose the weight that caused me to get on a number of the medications I'm on and get off of the diet soda kick in exchange for water as my go to beverage. I am ready for changes and the work it will take to make them happen.

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me

I have Rhematoid Arthritis, a inoperable brain aneurysm, breast cancer, sciatica, carpal tunnel in both hands, IBD, my tears aren't working in my eyes, I had a failed cervical fusion so I now have multiple broken screws there and my lower back is shot (bone pressing on my spine and all discs globally bulging) etc etc.

Funny thing though, I am just so grateful for my life, I feel so blessed with all that I do have, the above is just a bunch of pesky thorns, they don't take away my joy!!

My husband, lol. He is 81 and at least prediabetic, and stubborn. Refuses to go to a doctor unless something is broken or bleeding. So my challenge is managing the food both quality and quantity and keeping us moving.

@FMAX168 - I have the same three complaints. I've found that SparkPeople is very helpful in clearing up one of the problems... but I'm afraid we're stuck with the other two, they're incurable.

I have a genetic blood disorder...the opposite of a bleeders...im a clotter. It saved my life when i was hemmoragging after an ectopic pregnancy . But it also caused me to have a stroke, then two heart attacks before the drs prescribed me blood thinners. All these years i suffered so many things related to it but all the many drs told me was that I had thick blood or dirty blood...never gave me a real diagnosis until after 47years of suffering! It caused me to look like i was lying about my fatigue and anxiety every time i had symptoms that seem to just disappear. Food affected it and i had no idea... but least i have a diagnosis now. But it caused me a lot of suffering my whole life with all kinds if ailments and pains.

I am dealing with fatigue and weakness from Lupus and RA. This site has been very good in helping me focus on what I can do, was overwhelming at first but start the 28 day start up and that is helping me make sense of all that SparkPeople offers. Not having much luck with friends connecting but I do not spend a lot of time on here.

You name it i experienced it and my drs all thought it was all in my head or i imagined it until i had two heart attacks last December....they sent me to a hematologist last January and i learned I have a very rare genetic blood disorder, JAK2 gene which cayses a host if health issues. I knew something was wrong with me my whole life because i was sick so much. And so many ailments, but never had a label that was specific until i had my blood tested genetically. But i experienced so many things and the drs took all kinds of test over the year but they never pinpoint what was wrong with me, because i dont think they had a specific label...j just blame my mothers fathers for all my sicknesses and for my siblings mental retardation, because he cheated on my grandmother and he gave her syphillus when he impregnated my grandmother with my mother as none of her siblings had ant of the health issues we had. I felt cheated out of a life because of all the times i was sick.i was in remission but still sick. Hard to explain but this genetic blood disorder...my body produces too many platelets...the opposite of bleeders. But it causes strojes whuch i h.c ad one ehen i was 28, anx it causes heart attacks, leukemia and cancer. All my mothers siblings died of cancer but two. Two are still living. But my one brother and my daughter both have
this blood disorder. I also lost a niece with this blood disorder but she died of leukemia and died at age 7. So far im the oldest person i know with this genetic disorder. I wish i could meet others that has it.

For over 25 years I was told I have rheumatoid arthritis. Two years ago, after a lot of personal investigations, I asked my GP to refer me to a specialist in hypermobility disorders. I stopped taking the medications for RA after discussing things with the doctors.

Turns out I don't have RA after all. The doctors 25+ years ago and more recently were wrong.

I'm now undergoing all sorts of tests to determine what form of hypermobility disorder I have, whether that be a variation of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome or something else.

I'm also on medications for an inborn problem with my kidneys. Chances are this too is also related to whatever has caused the hypermobility.

Nan

No more compromising who I am to become who I think someone else wants me to be.

I'm 69 and I fell last year and broke my femur just below my hip joint last, so I have a rod and screws in my leg. I'm still dealing with it. I found an endocrinologist who put me on Metformin which lowered by blood sugar from 115 to 100 and I stopped night cravings. I released 36# and have kept it off for over a year. I plan to release another 20#. I take Armour Thyroid, a weekly shot of Bydureon, Baclofen (a muscle relaxant that helps me sleep), Progesterone, blood pressure medicine (my doctor says it will help my kidneys) and Vitamin K.
My doctor tells me "You don't want diabetes as it ruins everything." I keep reading that T2D is connected to Alzheimer's so I don't want that. Plus exercise is vital to keeping healthy, as Jack LaLanne taught us. He said "Don't lose the legs, because once they are gone, you're gone."

56 living in Florida with Chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia. Eating better and tracking nutrition helps a bit. Unfortunately, dealing with pain and fatigue makes normal daily functions rough. Hopefully, the nutrition will transition into more energy and less pain. Keep the faith folks.

Mid 60s, and the litany is too long to list here (or even to focus on!).

"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand."

"There's a difference between interest and commitment. When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when circumstance permit. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses, only results."
~ Art Turock
