No, this is not about me. Y'all have heard my story to death and I will refrain from boring you to tears. (Those who haven't heard my story a zillion times and just absolutely HAVE TO KNOW can read about it at Health Gazelle.) This is my reaction today to the Life-Threatening Illness & Reality Check thread. Consider this thread to be the anti-illness thread.
Clearly, I am not the only person here who has either survived a life-threatening health crisis or who lives daily with high health maintenance. On top of that, all those disgustingly healthy folks who do things like bicycle to work undoubtedly have read up on diet and the like and have their own views and experiences to share. We aren't so different anyway: I did gymnastics when I was younger and was taking 6-mile-long walks in the Mojave Desert up to three times a week up until a few months before I became bedridden.
So what's your story? What did you personally do to cope in the face of a health crisis that you feel helped make a positive difference in the outcome? Or, alternately, what do you do (other than count on luck and good genes) to stay so disgustingly healthy? Or what are you doing to remain healthier than the norm in spite of whatever chronic condition you happen to have?
Come on -- spill it.
