I have a strange story, and it started back in 02. I have MS, RA, I've had a massive heart attack at 48 yrs old. 3 mini strokes, 2 anurysym surgeries, Hyper Calcemia X2, I don't produce the enzyme that thins my blood (and that's not all of it) and NOW, I've been told I have type 2 diabeties. I mean....Enough already...right?? My problem is...I'm NOT over weight, I have been on a heart smart diet for 7 years faithfully, I have NEVER been a sweet eater....but, due to my current disability, I have NO way to exercise, Mainly because I can't handle the pain when I even move my legs. Soooo, to help combat the latest in my line of ailments....how can i get the exercise that I KNOW i need to get?View Thread
Michelle, I get offered all types of pain meds on a regular basis. The problem I have with that is they totally stop working for me in a very short time. I really HATE having to take meds. They basically just cover the problem.....I really want it fixed. lol To answer the question about me exercising.....NO, i can barely move my legs. It hurts to sit, lay down, or move in any direction. BUT, I do start PT this week, thank goodness!! I have everything that can be crossed on me crossed hoping that it will take all the pain away or at least get me to where I can move! As for a pool...yes, I have a pool...but getting in and out and then having to dry off....WOW!!!View Thread
Thank you for your reply. I totally understand about the carbs because that is also a huge part of my heart smart diet. BUT, this also runs in my family....I was just always hoping that this would be the ONE bullet that would miss me. Not my luck though. lol I'm like you. I guess it will soon get to where all I will be able to eat is grass. lol Not funny I know....but If I don't laugh....its over for me. lolView Thread
