I sometimes end up taking my medicine every other day or sometimes miss a couple of days at a time. I don't sleep on a regular schedule. I'm on several different medications. I have experienced excessive weight gain. I am currently 235 lbs. My illnesses include fibromyalgia, authritis, emphysema, hepatitis "c" (not currently being medicated for this), lumbar spinal stenosis, hypotyroidism (received radioactive iodine injection several years ago) recent right knee replacement (left to be done in the next few months), manic/depressive/skitzoprenic. Please excuse my misspellings. In pain mostly all the time. Use a wheelchair to get around.
