Atrial fibrillation,Multiple sclerosis
Depression,Generalized anxiety disorder
I have been living with Major Depressive Disorder my whole life but was officially diagnosed in 1986. I am a single mom of 2 grown children who are my rock and the reason I keep fighting. I feel there is still a good deal of stigma with mental health issues and I continue to try and eliminate that stigma.
Depression,Social anxiety disorder,Generalized anxiety disorder,Bipolar disorder
I'm a 41 y/o man, diagnosed first with Bipolar Disorder, which led me to being diagnosed with MMD, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, and Social Anxiety. I was diagnosed over 16 years ago at the height of my career and social life, with Bipolar Disorder as I said first, which caused me to have to resign from my job and move back home to my parents so I have someone watch over me and give me structure in my life. When I moved back home, I wound up taking care of my dad, who was really sick at the time, but he and I grew so close together during that time. I put my health issues aside to help him enjoy the rest of the time he had left. He passed away in 2015 and the pain just never goes away. My life at that point never really got any better. I have just had episode after episode, trying new medication combinations and still have not found the one for me yet, but I have not given up hope in that area. I now take care of the family and my mother. Still on disability, working to get better so that one day I can actually work again. But, as each day passes, I feel that is less likely to happen. Something always new comes into my life, medically speaking, and am forced to deal with that on top of the other illnesses. I enjoy having forums like these to talk with other people who are going through the same thing I am and seeing how they cope and find new ways to educate myself on my conditions and others. I am always open to a discussion or happy to lean an ear to anyone who needs to talk or vent. Hope to talk to you soon. —Thom
Ulcerative colitis,Depression,Diabetes (Type 2),Overactive bladder syndrome,Venous insufficiency
Hi everyone! I am 63 years old living in Hollywood Florida. Currently I am going through a few medical conditions. Starting with Type 2 diabetes. In addition, I suffer from ulcerated colitis, severe venous stasis in my right leg, hypertension and a few others. In spite of all this I do not give up on life. As a Christian, I have faith in God. I am finding ways to keep myself focused on the positive instead of the problems I endure. I enjoy Bible study. My other hobbies I enjoy public speaking, teaching online, and reading.
