Challenges…

Time to get a little deep…

I am twenty-five years old. I have medical issues that play a major role in this adventure..

Mental health:
I was diagnosed with depression at twelve; Bipolar Disorder (Bipolar II) came at sixteen, along with Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD).My medications can cause weight gain. There are some days when just getting out of bed is an accomplishment. I have impulse control issues on manic days. I’m hoping, with the help of the ever lovely Mike, exercise can become therapeutic. We’ll see.

Physical health:
I’m a clumsy person. I have sprained my left ankle and both of my knees. I have strained my tailbone. I constantly have cuts and bruises. (So if you see them in pictures, don’t worry! I got into a fight with an inanimate object, not Mike!) I smoke. I don’t really drink though! Having a whole lot of chest has given me back problems. I suffer from PCOS, which can cause weight problems. The birth control I’m on, you guessed it!, can cause weight gain. I’m obese. I get winded going up stairs. So things will start out very basic until this changes. Bear with me. I’m trying.

Family history:
I’m at risk for diabetes, high blood pressure, low thyroid, cervical cancer, degenerative disc disease, and more. I need to change things while I’m young enough to repair the damage of done and prevent these.

I’m going to try to post every day. If you see that I haven’t posted in a while, use the contact feature to yell at me to get back on here.

What are some challenges you face?

  1. My main challenge is that I’m a sugar addict which I need to break now because my grandmother had diabetes. I’m not a spring chicken any more and it seems as if the older I get, the harder it is to lose the weight and keep it off! Take it from me go ahead and get your health under control now.
