One thing I have learned about coping with all my myriad of diseases/disorders (full list can be seen on my profile) is 1st of all to stop fighting and start treating. When I fight I cause myself a lot more stress and strain than I need to. When I focus on the treatments it makes things a lot easier. Another way of looking at it is to stop focusing on the negative (fighting) and start looking at the positive (treatment). It may be difficult to get everything stable at the same time but I know, for me, it is a lot easier when I stay out of the negative and focus on the positive. This has also helped as new things have been added to my list of disorders over the last few years and also helps with accepting that I have something and learn how to work with my doctor(s) on treatments. JMHO :)

Well I am type 1 diabetic with nueropathy. I have osteoporosis, a heart murmur, depression, anxiety, asthma and I can pretty much say it SUCKS. So I feel your pain and sympathize with you. When I feel like I can't control it I usually start counting. I know it may seem dumb but I count because it takes my mind off whatever it is that's bothering me. I also do yoga. I'm beginner beginner. Lol. Some of the moves I can't do because I'm so weak but it does help. Hope you find a good coping method. :)

I have most of those things also. I have tried to get it all under control. When I realized that I can't things began to get better. My husband and I have found that swimming helps all of it. I have trouble getting out of the house … I anxiety when I am going out … but if I can get out the swimming really helps with anxiety, stress, diabetes, PTSD, depression, and some of my back pain. I don't know how old you are but you might check with your insurance and see if they cover a program like Silver Sneakers or maybe the Y.

You understand what I was saying YES. I should not say fighting it just want to get things right with the meds diet and exercise. I am 50 what is silver sneakers. I plan on checking the y when I have some extra funds. Thanks tor your reply.
