    You're too generous :wink: They found it in a very early stage, so before I saw the röntgen photo's I had no idea I was ill. So far the medicines are more annoying than the disease itself.

    So, diabetes how does that work? Do you have a restricted diet?

    I'm completely healthy, and don't suffer from any disease. Well, the doctors haven't found anything. Although I must admit that I'm not feeling to well right now, it's nothing chronic.

    I have cold water urticaria which causes a stinging, itching, swollen rash when my skin is exposed to cold water. It is usually only an irritant, rather than life threatening, except in rare circumstances. Most people think its a bit weird, even me.

    Hmmm, my mother has the same thing. She wouldn't last in the cold ocean at all.

    Indeed. So, what does hypertrophic cardiomyopathy mean? Cardio, is that something with the hart?

    It's an abnormal thickning of the heart muscle. The muscle cells aren't ordened as they should be but are laying criss cross. The thickning leads to bad blood flow out of the heart and valve leakage. The muscle cells being in disarray disrupt the normal flow of the electrical signals through the heart.

    ouch.. how did they find out? if you look at the symptoms, it seems difficult to make the diagnose that it's actually cardiothingy and not something else.

    They found a heart murmur during the medical checkup that's mandatory if you want to fly sailplanes. I was sent to the cardiologist and HCM was determined after ECG and doppler echo.

    When I was a teenager I was diagnosed as schizophrenic. At physiological services at UCSD my shrink gave me a bunch of I.Q. tests and told me I was a borderline genius but suffered from bipolar disorder. The most recent diagnosis is schizo-affective disorder. It seems the only thing these guys agree on is that I’m crazy.

    Most of the time, I think I’m just different, but every few years I have a psychotic break and need hospitalization.

    That is the attitude!

    I have asthma. I haven’t been in the hospital with it since I was a kid-I’m over 50 now. Most of the time I can breathe just fine, but wheezing is never far from me. I don’t travel without my inhaler. The lenses in my eyes have some opacity due to use of inhaled steroids. It doesn’t stop me from skiing or working up a good sweat though. I think I am doing great and I am happy to be alive.

    Like you say GG3 it could be worse. If we were living a hundred years ago most of these illnesses would have killed us by now-if that makes sense. 3 cheers for modern western medicine!

    Having chronic illnesses sucks. But I think being dead usually sucks worse.

    Unfortunately I don’t see anyone here who would have any medicines I would want to swap for!
