I find all of that is true, also.
I probably don't have the energy level I had before I started taking an anti-depressant. But I can handle less energy, but I probably couldn't handle as well being depressed.
Glad you have the will to do things. I don't have as many hours in the day to do things because for one, I sleep longer because my medicines slow me down and help me go to sleep at night. But then I don't wake up as quickly in the morning because of those same medicines. But I just have to be glad for the sleep.
Are you doing OK with your sleep? As I mentioned before, I take Melatonin from the health food or grocery store, or over the net. It helps me sleep and is not a doctor sleeping pill. Is your sleep OK?
Also, are you trying to reduce canned food, because of the high salt that it has in it, which is listed on the back of the can? I was told frozen food is better than canned food, and that fresh food is the best for you. They call fresh food unprocessed. Of course, at times, we might have to resort to those others, but I'm trying to go more for frozen or fresh food.
As noted, this website has a "Diabetes" forum where the moderator, Lanie G., gives a lot of good information. By reading the questions and replies, you can get a lot of help, including how to reduce the chances of getting diabetes.
Glad to hear you are "trying to be positive before helping a problem I have though. I think it kind of works ya. That's cool" Yeah, that works for me, too. Try to keep thinking that way, especially when things going tough.
Yes, I find myself wanting to eat things I shouldn't. That is very difficult for me.
Right, I think when we're not getting out and we are sad, we do tend to eat more. I can remember going through entire meals without eating a thing, I was so excited about talking to other people at the table. And when I worked, having quick, light lunches and it didn't bother me.
Now, I seem to be eating to make up for the lack of socialization. I use to get by on just the adrenaline from being around people. Also, the medicine increases my appetite. So it's a dual problem.
Along this line, the road I used to walk on is causing me problems. But I try to stay positive and think of ways I can exercise, different roads I can take, rather than just look at the one I can no longer walk on right now. It's an exercise of the mind, of staying positive.
Tonight, for instance, I took my trash can down front for pickup by the garbage truck. And then while I was out, I just walked repeatedly partway around my old street for my same 30 minutes of exercise.
Maybe, there is a hospital near you that has an exercise or gerd group, that walks once or twice a week. Can you look on the net for a nearby hospital that offers an exercise program.
Maybe look on the net for "Gerd health group for my home town".
