I'm in so so health status.
As a child I got many many ear infections, and had hearing lost by time I was say 25. By the time I was 30, I finally went to the U of M Drs. who tested the liquid in my ear, to be some unknown liquid. Not infected. So all the years earlier to this I was on many many antibiotics, that did nothing because it wasn't a bacteria infection, I became allergic to about 5 antibiotics. And Dr. Samual Levine called my condition Chronic weepy ear, showed me how to keep it clean with q-tips, and now the infections are like none. I'm wearing a hearing aide in that R ear.
I thought it was allergies, went through shots for 5 years, and then just quit, that did nothing, and now the blood tests show like no allergies??? But I do have some stuffiness so I take a genertic claritin and a genertic decongestent everyday.
I don't take milk well, so I take several calcium tablets with vit D daily.
I take a B complex and a packet of diabetic vits/supplements. I take an 81mg aspirin each night. I take a flax supplement gel pill, also a fish oil, and ginko binbo sp?.
When I was 30, I was told I have type 1 diabetes, child on set, no one in my family had/has it then or now. I use a insulin pump, my A1c is 7.4, as of last week. I also wear a blood glucose sensory, it's a Mini-Med set, they read each other. As does my blood glucose meter.
I have high blood pressure and take like 3-4 meds for that.
I have acid reflux and take a pill everyday for that.
When I was in 1st grade I got glasses.
When I was like 40 I had some testing and found out I have dyslexia, which keeps me from reading alot, I do read up on health issuses, but like going back to school/college, NO way. I did pass an equavence test for the No Child Left Behind law to work in the Mpls Public School system, I currently work with a teacher and 6 kids(am and 6 pm) 3-5 yrs old with Autism. I like the organization of things.
I have sleep apnea and sleep with a CPAP mask set at 12, I had also had a surgery to pull my jaw forward..... I sleep OK, it could be better ?? new mask??
I had a breast reduction about 10 yrs after having kids, headaches, sore shoulders...size G, now maybe a B. No head aches or sore shoulders.
I have been dealing with depression for like 30 years, on and off many meds/combinations, currently using the EMSAM patch, with great success, I've had the summer off of weekly counsoling, but am starting again tomorrow, again at the U of M, for med checks and some talk therpy.
In the past year I've lost about 30 lbs. I went from a size 22 down to a 16, going into a 14. But still need to lose another 30 or more. I've really changed my idea of a healthy live style, eating better, eatting more fruits and veggies, drinking a lot more water, I gave up diet pop, I've had a vine cooler or two a week, and even a very drinks casualy at family fuctions.
I have two daugthers, 25 and 27, one grandson 2 1/2 yrs old, and my wonderful Husband of 28 years.
We enjoy going to our Catholic Church, and doing several different things within our church, children education program, helping at Loaves and Fishes(feeding the Homeless), church picnic organizers, Women's Church Bazaar and more.
We share partnership/ownership with two of my sister's, of our family cabin, 200 miles north of Mpls. We love to fish, garden, fix-up things, hosting guests, watching Eagles and slapping bugs. My husband loves watching storms, I don't share that liking.
I have friends at church and different friends at work, but no friends in common.
Dale and I, do alot of things together. Our younger daughter(25) and her son, live with us, they keep us busy. She is going to college, to follow in her Dad's foot steps of becoming a RN. He works at the Children's Hosiptal, 7am -7pm 3x a week.
I ride the school bus and work in the classroom, and my work/school is just 10 blocks away, I make decent money(I've been in the system for 17 years) and work like 4 and a half days a week.
My daughter and I, like scrap booking, embroidering on my embroidery machine, playing with my grandson, emailing my other daughter and her husband in Ill. and I love making jewelry and gardening. Oh I also love the FREE section on Craig's List, I find all sorts of things, plus I trade alot of plants that way.
My parents both died, Mom at 54-lung cancer, smoking non-filters for 35 years. Dad, 64, liver disease, drinking, he also had throat cancer removed, smoking non-filters for like 45 yrs. Neither of them had much health concerns if any at all.
I have good health insurance, We use my husbands Family option. It's cheaper then my Family option.
Things I'd wish for my self, whiter teeth, so I use those strips at night.
I wish I could have surgery to get rid of my glasses.
I wish I could have liposuction or a tummy tuck, on my tummy.
I wish I could get the gerge to get excerising again. I did for about 3-4 months and lost most my weight, then got shin splints....they are fine now, but I'm off the wagon:(
In the last 4-6 months my sex drive has driven up, so much. My husband's is not so great. So I'm wanting it all the time and he's like again? I've been reading up on sex, women's sexual being, I've gotten 5 books, lingerie, we bought some things at like a sex shop. It's hard. I remember when he wanted it all the time, he was like 18-24 yrs old. if only we could turn his time clock back. I've learned alot of things about like orgasums...I only had my first one 2 1/2 yrs ago. Now I'd like one every time we gather for sex.
I dress differently, more sexy, I like little lacy undies, nighties at night, I've always dyed my hair to cover the gray(25 yrs), to a medium brown, maybe a reddish some times. Not blonde or black. I use wrinkle cream at night and in the morning for crows feet, for head wrinkles and the smiley ones.
