    High Blood Pressure

    I have been neglectful with my health because I slipped into depression and stress caused me to drink energy beverage every morning plus order unhealthy breakfast sandwich for few days. I admit I slipped into my addiction to Kratom it wrecked myself up. I’m married to BPD wife. It’s add to my plate. Before it happened my blood pressure was at reasonable. #bdp #BipolarDepression #BorderlinePersonalityDisorder #diabetic

    Experienced Beyond Age. #LymeDisease #chroniclyme #TraumaticBrainInjury #diabetic #braintumors #BrainAneurysm and so much more.

    27, I am 27 years old amd feel that life has thrown more then enough my way. I walk the path of being chronically ill and the path of being a care taker. Never once when I was younger think that I would experience so many things in such a short time. I feel I have so many stories that just fall on deaf ears, the desire to help others has just grown more with each life event I encounter. I dont know if there is any other way to release these feelings than to help someone else on their journey when it starts at a young age.
    It feels like I have no safe place to go and share my life experiences or how I am truly feeling in our society today.
    Thank you for listening.

    Mack knows when I'm having a really difficult day, which is everyday. He loves hugs, cuddling & smiles like crazy..
    Most days I hate my life & what it's become. I miss the old me.
    I was supposed to have TILF surgery with revisions to a failed lumbar fusion adding more hardware, rods, bone grafts , 3 more discs & more. It's been cancelled 5 times in under 2 yrs due to so many other health problems/issues. I was finally ready, healthy, had my mindset for it in March. Then Covid19 came along cancelling it again. Last month it was going to happen then I got sick again with bronchitis. I feel as if something is telling me it's not the right time. I'm back to the drawing board. I started at the MS Center & next month we're going to discuss treatment options. But my last brain scans picked up another tumor. It also showed I had another TIA within the past 6 months, I thought it was anxiety attack or a MS hug. Nov 1999 I had a craniotomy to remove a brain tumor. Here I go again. I've been so depressed & anxiety is running wild. My mind isn't in the right place. I don't think I'm going to have the TILF surgery anytime soon or at all. I'm not ready for it. I'll just take my chances. 😒

    Does anyone else feel very anxious and/or paranoid when their blood sugar drops?

    Hey, everyone. This post is aimed at Type 2 Diabetics!! Although anyone can drop some advice in the comments.

    I’m slowly starting to get my blood sugar under control. I take Alogliptin, Metformin AND Gliclazide. Because of the Gliclazide I sometimes have Hypo’s. I have stuff in the house to counteract them though. Like 200ml cartons of orange juice, those tiny cans of Coke and some Dextrose Sugar Chews.

    But when my blood sugar drops below 5mmol/L I start shaking really badly and I end up feeling extremely nervous and sometimes paranoid too! Does anyone else feel this way? What do you do for it? How do you calm yourself down?

    Thank you in advance!

    I have never been ashamed of either my amputation(s) or my prosthetic. I recently got a new prosthetic and had it adorned with the South Carolina moon and tree

    Today I went out in my new sandals and my George Washington socks. the sandals are closed toe which fits the fake foot as well as my three toed left foot. I embrace the new me and wear shorts most of the time
