Well the title says it i guess. I was diagnosed when I was 12 but it started probably when I was 10. I've never met someone else expect for one of my old teachers who has it. Reading posts on here almost brings me to tears because half the time I just think I'm crazy or I'm the only one.

I go to school just like everybody else and have really good grades(I tend to throw myself into for a distraction or attempt one at least) and want to college and one day be a occupational...

Pain is my master

My body is in so much pain today that I can barely stand to sit and write this. I will have to try and walk around a bit to try and get relief. It hurts to sit, it hurts to stand and God does it hurt to walk. Sometimes, like today, I feel a bit out of it as well. I feel like I am here but not really hear. Sounds weird I know, but imagine how weird it feels to me. This waiting on a decision for my SSD id excruciating, it's almost as bad as my daily pain. I just feel like my whole world is completely...

Journal of Addiction: Number One

You have changed and not for the better! You can not even fully see the spectrum of it all. Do you have insight into just how uncontrollable it has really become? Keep on keepin' on until you drop. Your body is rotting and you bleed from orifices you didn't know you had. Yes, you will bleed in many ways.

And you will waste so much time...and life itself.

You grow angrier and more irrational as it goes. You are sullen. You got a glance of it, noticed...

Chronic Illness and Keeping up with the Joneses

How can a chronically ill person keep up with everyone else? This is the question I posed to my husband yesterday. How do even healthy people work full time and yet have time to mow, weed- eat, edge, and blow their lawns, wash their cars, go to their kids games, much less do all the other chores necessary each week?

I have to be truthful here. Although I know I shouldn't, I have to admit I do care what other people think. I want to keep up with the Joneses.

Eating right, taking care of yourself, & teaching family

Well, I guess I'm on my own learning about a reactive hypoglycemia diet. The dietitian says that my insurance doesn't cover the expense. To pay out-of-pocket, it will be over $200. I think I'd like that job. I wonder how much of that $$ actually goes to the dietitian?

I guess that learning how my body reacts to certain foods is something I will have to find out on my own anyway. But, it would be nice to have at least some guidelines. I did print out the glycemic index and...
