Hi, my name is Kathy and I have been overweight most of my life. I have been trying to lose weight for the last year with little success. I originally started with Sparks in February 2008 and didn't know much about it. This year I actually have made a sparkpage.

I suffer from severe depression and an anxiety/panic disorder which makes it hard to get out and do things. My counselor convinced me to take an aqua aerobics class and to go to the YMCA which I do but my life still is ...
Hi, my name is Kathy and I have been overweight most of my life. I have been trying to lose weight for the last year with little success. I originally started with Sparks in February 2008 and didn't know much about it. This year I actually have made a sparkpage.

I suffer from severe depression and an anxiety/panic disorder which makes it hard to get out and do things. My counselor convinced me to take an aqua aerobics class and to go to the YMCA which I do but my life still is not fulfilled.

I have had a pelvic fracture in two places and was in Good Samaritan nursing home for almost a month but was discharged on May 17th and am now at my folks house recovering and will be going to physical therapy. I am suppose to have back surgery on June 22nd. It is hard when you are in pain most of the time. I will go home to my second floor apartment as soon as I am well enough to climb the stairs. I haven't lost as much weight as I had hoped from the lap band surgery but haven't been able to exercise much or eat the right foods since the fracture. Hopefully now I will get back on track.

Last year I had three surgeries on my back. On May 6th, 2010, I had to have athroscopic surgery to my right knee so am currently recovering from that.

I am hoping to meet and correspond with people who have the same problems that I do and get advice and ideas to better live my life. I am enjoying being a sparks member and am enjoying the support that everyone has given me.

Had an EMG last week due to the pain in my leg and the right side of my back. Found out that the back is okay but the bad news was that I now have diabetic neuropothy in my right leg and the pain will probably be there until my blood sugars are under control. Hope that is soon.

Check with yourpodarist if you can take Metanx and Alpha Lipioic Acid for the Peri. neuthropathy. It has worked wonders for me.
