    I'm new here!

    Hi, my name is bellaTinne. I've been diagnosed with bipolar disorder since I was a college sophomore in 2002. Since then I've been married, divorced, lost both parents, dated and found someone I genuinely care for again, and graduated in 2020 after starting in 2001. Hospitalizations, pitfalls, loss, grief, suicidal thoughts, self-harm, and many other dreadful conditions, such as diabetes in 2003. When my divorce was finalized, and I was on my own, I felt so alone, but now I've become a strong self-advocate for my health. I will openly confide in my employers about my illness, so they know what is happening in life and accommodations can be made for my disability. I'm happy to meet everyone and hope to welcome you too.

    Recently diagnosed grade 2 Diostolic Dysfunction and scared

    I went to ER recently and after a ton of testing I was told my heart was slightly to mildly enlarged and that the echo showed that my heart struggles to relax. The Emergency department didn’t make it seem like a big deal, in fact they didn’t even tell me the name of the heart issue. I looked at my medical records and saw stage 2 diostolic dysfunction and haven’t stopped panicking since. My X-ray looked good except the slight heart enlargement, it said no sign of heart failure, the troponin was elevated then lowered then elevated again and stayed steady on the 4th one. They didn’t do any cath test or stress test. They only did ekg which was normal, holier monitor for 12hrs which was normal, CT and chest X-ray. I am 34 and over 400lbs. I have been working on weight loss a lot lately and I never knew there was a issue with my heart. I had palpatations off and on for years and had a full cardio work up in 2017 and in 2020 and everything was normal. I have sleep apnea but I use CPAP, I have hypothyroidism but I use Levothyroxine. I know my colesterol was high in the past but it hadn’t been tested since 2020. I have occasional bouts of hypertension but it’s usually at the doctor and normally it’s between 116/80 to 130/80. The BP was really high at the hospital. I’m also pre diabetic and have PCOS. I’m not a big fan of taking meds and would love to be able to treat this holistic. I’m really scared I’ve been given a death sentence. I’ve been eating heart healthy since I left the hospital 4 days ago but I did a drastic dip in calories out of anxiety. #dostolic Dysfunction stage 2

    advice on healthily loosing weight with an ED, HEDS, PCOS, Depression etc. ??

    I am currently quite overweight and I want to get into better shape and loose weight for myself and was told to by my doctors. but that seems almost impossible with all of my illnesses. First of all I have an Eating disorder (not specified, more binge eating) which makes food and body image very complicated and then I have PCOS, hashimoto’s and hypothyroidism which is already hard to loose weight with on top of hypermobile EDS which makes getting active and moving physically very hard and painful and to top it off low energy and motivation with depression. I’m trying to do this to just slightly feel better but I don’t exactly how. How do you stay in shape with these kinds of setbacks? i’m open to any advice! Thank you <3 #BingeEatingDisorder #PolycysticOvarySyndrome #HypothyroidismUnderactiveThyroidDisease #HashimotosThyroiditis #HEDS #hypermobileehlers-DanlosSyndrome(hEDS) #EhlersDanlosSociety #EhlersDanlosSyndrome #Depression
