  • Yes, but if I named them all, I would go over my character limit. I'll just shorten my answer and say Diabetes plus the health challenges that generally marry up with it. The good news is that I work really, really hard to keep everything in line and live a healthy lifestyle to almost an extreme. I also have a great endochrinologist who compliments my test results everytime I see him.
    All in all, if I have to live with diabetes, I am determined that my life will remain in the center, and my enemy diabetes will have to stay in the background ... rather than the other way around.

  • Yes, Its called "mommy brain".
    I constantly forget where I put things
    What the day is
    Important items crucial to our survival with a small child
    where I need to be and the time I need to be there
    How late I went to bed last night
    How the coffee maker works
    how long it takes me to get places when I have to pack a whole other person

  • Yes. I'm curious as to why you're interested especially since you didn't list any? I have asthma, am overweight, Bi-Polar, PTSD and OCD.

  • I have far too many to count. I have stage 4 endometriosis, I am anemic and borderline diabetic. I have hip dysplasia and carpal tunnel. I am flat footed, and as a result and knock-kneed. I suffered a compression fracture in one of my vertebra that still causes pain. I have restricted airway syndrome, which is similar to asthma according to my doctor, but somehow not the same thing. But, on a general basis, so long as I watch what I eat and exercise regularly, I live a normal life. Most people don't know about the majority of my health issues.

  • Ewadun, I'm just curious. I've had some in the past, but nothing major.

  • Well, I guess I do have anxiety. It's something that has gotten worse since I'd had my son, but luckily I'm on a low dose of anxiety meds that really help a lot. :)
