Just had a very painful conversation with my in-laws.

Hey there,

the unknown is so scary I guess it stops us all from doing things that might benefit us in the long run of things. If only we could see how we would be if we took certain steps.

Wish I could make things better for you or find answers that would help.

Love

Promise

Promise,

I know this but knowing it and doing anything about it are two totally different things.

Sweetie, you did right to tell his doctor. But I want you to know this one thing,

I told him that I had called the doc to let them know about the easy bruising, bleeding and irritability.

oh; sorry I misunderstood what you said in the other post but now I get it.. well? sort of

so how old is he? I think if I did all of that at my age I would pass out or something. How come he can do all of this and not pass out or whatever. How can he function at work? Does he just sit all day and work at the Post office?

Oh; You should be given a medal or something for SaintHood because I would never be able to do what you do..my doc says I cant have stress anymore and this type of man would surely put me over the edge ..I cant believe you dont have PTSD or something..Do you think that is why you have nuropathy.. I dont know what that is but I hear you say it has something to do with pain.. I read alot of things about the mind and body. Like they are connected. I remember when my sis moved in this alcoholic boyfriend at one point. He was very toxic and terrorized me and her and my mom. Mostly her but I got caught in the crossfire. That is when my bp started rising and I started to have health issues. Thank God she kicked him out..

well all we can do is pray for you and him. Hope his doc visit goes okay

Blessings

I didn't say he doesn't care about his health.

Oh; but wait a minute and please bare with me. If he doesnt care about his health or anything for that matter then why is he trying to keep fit and not have a heart attack? Do you see where that makes no sense. So you know he has a mental disorder and that is what the culprit is right? So does he take meds for it?? I can bet if he took some meds or did something he would probably feel better but he doesnt think he has a problem right? so that leaves you holding the bag so to speak no???

Anyway; I have high bp right now and heart disease in my family.I have some problems and . I just lost 15 pounds and I started walking two miles a day. I am behind now because of the depression (another story) and I take medication for the bp..

well maybe you should call his doctor so that you dont have guilt if you dont.. You might feel better knowing you tried to do something.

Oh; How does your
