About Me: Male, 55, Cranberry Township, PA, member since Nov 2011
My photo is from my 50th birthday party...yes, it's almost time for another one...UGH! Anyway, I feel pretty healthy, overall, and am grateful for my health. I do have some issues and have so since my 20s but who doesn't have something to deal with. The worst thing a
[More]t this point is joint pain. That's the next doctor on my to do list. As for my personal life, I do have a special child that has an endocrinology issue (from birth) and has been mentally and developmentally challenged his entire life. He will be 26 in December and is a wonderful person. He's a great kid and I wouldn't trade him for anything. He's a total dear. Anyway, I raised him myself from an infant for 12 years as a single mom with all that his issues entailed. It was a very trying journey but I made it without losing myself to drugs, alcohol, or a mental breakdown...lots of tears, though. I am a very proactive person when it comes to my health (and my son's) and am I most avid advocate. Learn everything you can. I just wish others (even my own family) would wake up and do the same before it is too late. Your quality of life depends on it. God Bless everyone. :)
