HBP & cholesterol problems. Muscle pain. Also, numbness in left hand from pinched nerve from lying in hospital bed so long. Now, I have just been diagnosed with gallstones and a kidney stone. Last year I had to have a lump in my shoulder and then my parotid removed. I barely saw a doctor for 30 years but I have definitely made up for it the last three years.

One day at a time; one pound at a time.

As most of you know, I have not had BC; just work with women who have.

I do have hypertension and take medication for it. Also, have a slightly prolapsed valve (family trait) so take a med to lower my heart rate, preventing thickening of the valve.

Time is the only obstacle to exercise.

I have fibromyalgia, but have learned to deal with it, exercise and diet is key.

I take a low dose medication for hypothyroidism but have no other health issues. This has not been a good year for some relatives of my and friends, though. There have been more than a few visits to hospitals and rehab centers. Some friends are dealing with ongoing problems with children, too. I'm ready to say good riddance to 2013 and ready to make a new start in 2014.

Do you have any ongoing health conditions in addition to having breast cancer, or are you a supporter of bc, never had it, and you may be facing other health problems, if so what? how do your health issues motivate you, how do they make working out or being healthy difficult? Post anything that you struggle with, and how you overcoming hurdles in your life, to be a positive force in a sometimes dark and negative world! emoticon emoticon emoticon
