I am 50 yr old woman I have multiple conditions & currently take about 18 prescription medications. I try to stay positive & live life to the fullest. The condition that I am most concerned about is my recently diagnosis of Vascular Dementia. They found out I have had 6 mini strokes over the last 4 months They have me on Exelon ( Alzheimer medication) patches to help with my memory. So it kills me to think I won't be able to recognize my own kids & family. I have already lost some memory & have problems with my thought process & finding the "correct" words when speaking. I am amazed by all the help & careing people on this website & I am grateful to have the support from all of you. I love meeting new people & helping anyone. I try to have a positive outlook on life & enjoy sharing that with everyone I meet. I also suffer from Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Chronic Migraines, Hemicranial Headaches, Diabetes Type 2, High blood pressure & high Chlorestrol & Triglcerides, Asthma, Factor 5 Lieden, insomnia, Deppresion, Social Anxiety, Anxiety & Agrophobia & Gastropresis & PTSD. I had a Hysterectomy at the age of 30 due to Endometrosis and just recently found out I have had Osteoarthritis & a Degenrative Disk disease in my spinal cord that has done alot of damage & Several other medical conditions. I am a very caring & honest person and I really appreciate everyone on the site. I enjoy helping people & I have already found the dearest Soul Sister that could be my twin thru this site so I owe this site SO MUCH. I have also found great friendship thru this site & I feel so lucky to have so much support. Anything anyone wants to ask me I will always give an honest & straight forward answer. I have been told I am a great listener & I do not believe in lying it is SO a Waste of time & drama. So if I can offer any of you something I would love to chat with you. I have a TON of life lessons & have been sickly since I was very young. So I would love to be friends with everyone. Thank you for taking the time to read about me. My wish for everyone on this site to feel better & to get all the help & support. I belIeve that it is Very important to be your own advocate & if you are not capable to do that definately find an advocate to help you. Never just accept what ONE Drs. Opinion & never accept Poor care from a Dr. if you feel that your Dr..is not helping you find another one. And most of all Never take life for granted. Live each day to the fullest & love your family & friends. This is a Great site & we are here to help & support everyone in any way that I can.read less
