    What health issues do you struggle with and how do you cope?

    I am a bit of a hypercondriac when it comes to my heath. I have thought I had almost ever serious illness at one point. It is not fun and not good but goes along with my anxiety and panic attacks. I am going through some issues right now with how I have been feeling lately. Getting shakey between meals and feeling lightheaded. Because of the way my mind races, I am not starting to think I am diabetic. It is embarrassing to be this way, to say the least.

    Medically speaking, I have only ever been diagnosed with acid reflux, anxiety, poor posture, and low blood pressure. I have never been diagnosed but I am almost certain I have IBS as well but this is part of my anxiety and worrying issues. Despite this, I still get scared every time I feel different or have a different sensation in my body occur.

    What are some health issues you struggle with and how do you cope with them?

    Giant dick syndrome.

    Aside from that, I have a lot of trouble falling asleep, but nothing I've been diagnosed with. I'm surprisingly healthy considering the way I eat & how rarely I exercise.

    I had Schumeran's Disease growing up. It was hard having to explain it over and over. Never had any pain and will not progress anymore, but the comments over the years have taken a toll.

    I didn't want to ask what it was so I just searched it. That is good you never had pain from this and that it won't get any worse or anything like that. I can't imagine how annoying it must have been to always explain it and knowing how kids can be, how it must have been growing up.

    Asthma.
    I only really notice it while doing endurance training without medicine.

    And hallucinations with sleep disorder for one year now.
    Not beeing able to fall asleep normaly anymore is very annoying. It is endurable with the new meds I have to take now.

    I recently got diagnosed with Crohns Disease, about a year back. Due to my current employment situation my healthcare is incredible so Ive been getting the best treatment I can.

    I can still eat what I want to eat, its just some are a good idea and others are not. Doing a bunch of colonoscopies is really the hard part..

    I have a couple distant family members who struggle with Crohns. On the surface they hide it well, but I remember my cousin confiding in me about it and it was pretty eye-opening. It really puts things into perspective as to we as humans are quick to put up those kinds of walls to protect us from the judgmental eye of others, yet there's nearly a 100% chance that those who judge us are dealing with some form of inner demons.

    My biggest struggle may not be directly health-related but almost certainly emotionally-related. I've always had trouble with reciprocity throughout my life; it hasn't been diagnosed at all, but I have a hunch that not putting in the effort to offer something - material or immaterial - similar to those who offer me something gives off the wrong impression of how people view me as a friend or family member or loved one. I've always been the one in the room who would listen to others' conversations, tolerate others' opinions, and laugh at others' jokes before I took my turn. I remember the scene from Goodfellas before the gangsters were about to bury Billy Bats and were forced to eat a meal with Tommy's mom because they woke her up. At the kitchen table where Jimmy, Tommy and his mother were talking about paintings of dogs and fisherman, there was Henry sitting quietly, and Tommy's mother lightly judged him for being so quiet as if he didn't want to be there. Personally I always enjoy the company of my friends, but I can see why being quiet can give off that impression.

    I feel like this lack of reciprocity and overall quietness has branched out into social insecurity and mild depression. I've lost sleep and have skipped meals thinking about things like this. That being said, I feel like actually putting these thoughts into text is a bit therapeutic for me, if not a temporary fix. Typing about this even more makes me think that there has to be someone else who feels similarly. What do yall think?
    A boy has the right to dream. There are endless possibilities stretched out before him. What awaits him down the path he will then have to choose; the boy doesn't always know. At some point the boy then becomes an adult, and learns what he was able to become. Joy and sadness will forever accompany this. He is confronted with a choice; when this happens, does he bid his past farewell in his heart? Once a boy becomes an adult, he can no longer go back to being a boy; the boy is now a man. Only one thing can be said: "A boy has the right to dream.". For those endless possibilities are stretched out before him.

    We must remember...all men were once boys.
