Hi,Just wondered how other people deal with multiple health concerns.I have type 2 diabetes, but I also have pretty bad COPD, along with myriad "minor" health conditions (depression, sleep apnea,…Continue
Well, today I'm feeling a little better, got started on antibiotic and prednisone yesterday. Yesterday I put on my shoes and socks all by myself for the first time since the hip problem, a big comeback for me. I also made all my own meals and did 2 loads of laundry - and I loved every minute of it, being out of bed is so great!
Today I will fold and put away the 2nd load of laundry, attack the dishes that have been stacking up for days and do some hall-walking. I'm also going to find…Continue
Well, I didn't cough so much last night, took some prednisone yesterday and feeling better today. (My pulmonologist gives me a certain leeway with the prednisone, which goes with the COPD territory.)

I retain water pretty bad and my feet…Continue
I recently was laid up in bed for 2 whole months (yes, that's 8 weeks, literally) with what I thought was severe sciatica. It turned out to be some pretty bad hip problems from years of sitting, standing and laying postural-ly incorrect. Now, for years, I've heard all the stuff about good posture, standing straight, etc, etc. Just never practiced it. In fact, I didn't practice much of anything that would lead to good health. I smoked for about 15 years, up to 1.5 packs a day. I really never…Continue
