Yes I feel this way too! I'm so overweight & have COPD and Cogestive Heart Failure with High Blood Pressure to name a few. It scares me that I wont be able to do anything physically exciting ever again. I feel like my life is over at 37.
In the past 3 years I have been diagnosed with Diabetes II...thankfully I controlled it by diet.
I have now medication for high cholesterol and High BP.
I have also had my gall bladder out in 2015.
I had my right hip replaced Oct, last year.
My Left hip is degenerated badly that eventually I will need that replaced too.
Sometime this year, I am due to have mastectomies due cysts, pain and high risk of cancer (my sister died of Breast Cancer 12 yrs ago).
I have degeneration in my C5 and C6 region of my neck.
Having severe Depression and anxiety on top of this.....certainly doesn't help the mindful and positive thoughts of trying to love myself. All this...and I am only 49!
It crushes me, as I have had my bone density checked....normal range and I played and excelled in so many sports in the first 25 yrs of my life. Now I can't do much.
I try to swim and walk, thats all I can focus on atm.
Yes for sure, psoriatic arthritis. It's been a bad year. Never know how I am gonna feel.
