Do you have any health conditons like asthma, high blood pressure, cholestrol, diabetes etc. I have asthma, eczema, allergies. Asthma is the most difficult for me because I do suffer from severe asthma. What conditions do you have, how do you deal with them?

I have blocked sinuses perminently, bad headaches most of the time, low blood pressure, sensitive skin(not really a heath condition in my opinion though), and alot of allergies to strange things but they are just part of life in my opinion. I am pregnant and because of my past pregnancies i have a high risk pregnancy and need to be checked on more often than in normal pregnancies. I have to take low dose asprin to help the plecentre work well and stay attached to the womb, because i have a problem with it coming away from the womb and oviously that will stop my baby from breathing so they would die(as it has happened in a past pregnancy). I don't take anything for my blocked sinuses and my headaches, because all i can take it parasetamol and that doesn't work for me. I have alot of water infections aswell, which i have to keep taking antibiotics for. I do not take anything for low blood pressure, i am adviced to relax as much as possible and not to do too much and not walk too far. I am unable to relax much though because i have my 19 month old son to look after full time. ~Joeys wife

Yes, I have several conditions that I can deal with, but that can still kill me if I don't do the right thing. I have hypoglycemia which is the oppisite of diabetes, I basically have to have a certain amount of sugar otherwise I'd go into a coma. I'm also anemic, which is something also very scary, I can only control it with iron pills. I also have an extreamly weak immune system, so I can get sick easily. I tell people that I hate being sick all the time, but I know others suffer worse. However, those are my conditions.
