Hi Peter,
Maybe I don't make sense. I find that I procrastinate is because I can't do things that I used to do. It is very frustrating. I should ask a family member or professional to help me. I is hard to admit that you can't do certain things anymore. So I procrastinate.

Yes,
 some people are hypochondriacs. I know a few.One of my husband's aunt was like that. She got prescriptions that were not needed for imaginary ailments  which harmed her health.

Unfortunately when something is really wrong it is hard to believe them. When his aunt was dying I thought oh it is not serious. It is some complaint that doesn't mean anything.

Hi Peter,
 I hardly use salt also. As you say there is a lot of hidden salt in foods. Should make food from scratch to watch salt intake. At this stage of the game being older and mostly on my own I can't be bothered.

I'll mention it to nurse practitioner soon.  It would be a geriatric one, as I'm 71.

I need help with procrastinating, for one thing........that's a BIG thing.

Possible reason for procrastinating/avoiding......"I'm not worth it".....i.e.,re doing self improvement things.  "I"m not worth improving, so why bother?"
Just a thought.

Re health anxiety, my friend in Japan (he's from here) says he's a hypochondriac....I haven't really noticed that.  Maybe he doesn't open up enough - typical male! :o
He asked his Dr. for blood pressure medication, even though his b.p. is normal.  Dr. gives him prescription!


That was a couple of years ago.  He now has fibromyalgia...(sp.).....I'm sure that it's real, as his pain is pretty bad, among other ailments.

I know some Dr.'s think it's imaginary, but his isn't....he's suffering.

So much positive feedback!

I can get used to wearing the mask - a person can get used to almost anything.


Re getting used to things, I haven`t used salt for over 30 years.  The odd food (very few), I have to have salt, like fish and chips, corn.

The last few months only, I`ve been putting a bit of salt on potatoes.


During my 30`s, my blood pressure was slightly high.  Dr. said to cut down on salt....or don`t use any?......I forget.


Peter

I realize there's a lot of hidden salt in food.

Hello Peter. I found the mask really easy to use when I pu my mind to it. You can also get various masks and hook ups. Mine covers my nose only. Take Care. paul m

My sister uses CPAP, Peter and it really helps her. She's much more refreshed in the morning. Good luck!!
