My story

Good morning everyone,

What a beautiful morning it is. Are you ready to cast your ballot for Canada's voting day. I am. Well, I will try to make my story short. I was diagnosed in April 2007 with the bipolar 2 disorder and it was due to a stressful time in my life. I have been searching for a proper drug cocktail for myself and hoping this can be done on a few as maybe 3 prescriptions only. I hate taking pills. I have an enlarge liver due to the obesity of my body. Yup, I am overweight or obese. I weigh about 276 lbs and about 5 ft 8 inches tall. So hard to lose weight when you body is always hungry and thirsty. Abut 2 years ago, I was diagnosed as a pre-diabetics, but now I am jumped the fence, passed the board and am a full fledged diabetic. using two medications only, exercise and no insulation is used.

I want to know if anyone out here thinks and knows that my diabetes 2 and bipolar 2 are closely related.

Tired of not sleeping well thru the night. Love the energy I experience and the upbeat lifestyle too.

Tired of feeling hungry and thirsty but enjoying the weight loss. I had an ultrasound done last week because I have been experiencing an extended bloated stomach on the right side of my abdomen and it hurts when pressed. I get to know the results tomorrow at my doctor's office. I feel like an old jalopy, we fix one part of me and another thing is broken.

I am turning the big 65 in 2 weeks on November 1st.

Let me know any suggestions, thanks
