Re: Am I Healthy or Not
Your question "Am I healthy?" qualified by the fact that you have hypertension and thyroid problems seems to me to be mostly a question of semantics.
I had a crippling heart attack many years ago at age 47, have had throat and bladder cancer (both in remission for over 7 years), have hypertension and high cholesterol, have atrial fibrillation, and have angina. For these and other problems I face a multitude of pills each day. The medicines keep the various problems under control.
The question "Am I healthy?" has rarely ever occurred to me, and your post set me thinking. On the one hand, obviously I'm not "healthy". I'm not going to participate in Olympic races.
Yet I wake up each morning eager to get going, and if anyone offhandedly asks me if I'm healthy, I'd reply "Absolutely".
In your case, as in mine, I would think that the ability of whatever medicines you take to control your problems would be the bright line between "Healthy" and "Unhealthy".
It's an interesting conundrum. Thanks for posing the question.
