Hi. This is a photo of me at the very beginning of my mental illness. I thought I'd put it here to jolt the memories of friends and family. Mental illness has affected every aspect of my life including my physical health and weight.
So - what is the bad health news?
Well I have (in no particular order): damage to my lungs, tachycardia (fast pulse rate), high cholesterol, borderline diabetes and deficiencies in vitamin D and calcium.
So what do I have to do?
Over the next two months I have to: walk or bike 4 km a day, give up smoking, eat low cholesteral foods, restrict caffeine and alcohol and take vitamin supplements.
It sounds easy, perhaps, but not for me. Please pray for me and/or support me to achieve these goals.
God Bless you all.
