    Oddly enough, not as bad as one would assume. I'm still overweight (lost quite a bit earlier this year when I switched to vegetarian...summer ruined my veggieness, but winter will probably have me back on it. ****in' BBQ's man...) but doc says I'm good every time I go in for a sniffly cold or whatever.

    My knees and shoulders and fingers are all pretty smashed up though. I have a really bad knee (jumped off a huge sand dune and wrecked it, never been the same since) and a bad shoulder...I really need surgery (pins in the shoulder) but I can't afford it. It's whatever...I just can't throw stuff really hard. Or walk sometimes when my knee decides to pop out.

    Other than that, I have a brain thing pseudotumor...I dunno how that's going. I've always had it, but it turns out THC is one of the things that helps it. So yeah, I don't get the symptoms and it keeps it consistently in check.

    My brother on the other hand just found out he's close to being diabetic and has to change up his eating habits asap.

    So im curious, how are you and yours doing?
    Bro, yr bp is fine. That's within normal, healthy range. At least, according to the charts at the community clinic where I volunteer as a medical assistant.

    Anyway, my health sucks. Physically, I'm extremely underweight. My BMI is 15.2. I have some sort of eating disorder apparently, which may or may not be anorexia. I have stomach pains and acid reflux all the time.

    Emotionally and mentally, I've been diagnosed with PTSD what with my flashbacks, intrusive thoughts, ****ed up sleep (we're talking 0-4 hrs sleep a night on average), etc, - I've got every symptom except for irritability, apparently - that have been ongoing for like, most of my life but I thought were normal. I'm super prone to bouts of depression where I don't eat or sleep. Also, In November and in April I lost an uncle, leaving only my abusive wifebeater of an uncle alive; so that's been getting me even more depressed. And my major is stressful and hard as ****; organic chemistry was my easy class last semester.

    I wasn't fed for a year (maybe two) as a kid, and the lack of nutrition for such a long period has long-term health and medical risks for me, too. By wasn't fed, I mean like, literally two pieces of toast and maybe peanut butter would be my meal for the whole day.

    All in all, things health-wise are looking up compared to where I was ~2 years ago. I'm not having intrusive thoughts or being triggered every day, for example - more just like every other day. I actually have good days every couple of weeks. Somehow I've managed to eke out a 4.0 in college so far (I'm starting my senior yr in a couple of weeks) in a very competitive program, I volunteer weekly at a medical clinic for the poor and uninsured (up to 20hrs), and also the domestic violence shelter working with the kids as a positive male role model; and I have a job as a police response advocate, arriving with the police at scenes of domestic violence calls. I'm involved with my frat at a national level and also serve on the executive board of my chapter. But most impressive of all, I'm a moderator at Onrpg.com. And I got all my health shit holding me back; so when these ****ing freshmen in my frat complain I just laugh and laugh and laugh.

    Some weird shit that looks like epilepsy. Currently waiting for the results of the EEG and what the neurologist says.

    The rest looks good or are related to the 3 I just listed.

    I'm a lazy eater so I don't eat as much calories as I'm required to. Thus I'm a bit underweight and always lethargic. I wish I was more motivated to eat. Definitely sure that means I'm not in good health due to lack of nutrients.

    Blood pressure varies, quite rapidly. Having an extremely high blood pressure really doesn't mean much unless it is a constant issue. Most blood work doesn't take anywhere near 3 weeks to come back unless it is specialized testing that is done in a central location, I live in quite the remote area and we finish 95% of requested testing in less than 8 hours, for some tests the doctor tells you to come back in a week to review the results for I could finish before you'd leave the building after having your blood taken (if you're relatively normal). Keep in mind some tests are required as soon as physically possible e.g. if someone is bleeding out or having a heart attack, and the longest one that they really need in emergency situations (not including medication monitoring) takes less than an hour.

    As for not going to physicians, but believing your health isn't that good... If you're honest about this feeling, go to a doctor. I have very little patience for people who complain about issues and do nothing about it, there are tests, blood or imaging, to really nail down how much your knee hurts and there is medication or physio in order to greatly remedy any long-term pain you've been experiencing, there is no need to suffer pain that can be avoided.

    As for a HbA1C for 7.1 (which I assume you mean by Hg), it is high, but it isn't that bad in the overall scheme, definitely work on it though, you don't want to stick around there. It's a 3 month estimate of your glucose control, the higher it is the more damage you'll be doing to yourself [especially your kidneys (What's your Urine microalbumin / creatinine ratio?)].

    As for my health, I'm almost the definition normal with the exception of a slightly decreased white blood cell count (which I believe is due to me never being sick) and I'm dodging the genetic bullets (cancer mostly) that's been fired at me from all directions. Also, I'm lazy as hell, so I should work out more, which I won't do.
