Health update, depression, CFS, IBS, asthma

Hi everyone, 

I have a list of posts to write but its time I did a health update post. 
It feels like a long time since I have done one and Some of you new followers should probably be filled in. This is by no means a poor me post. I just like to be honest with you all. If I am honest, You will all know this blog started from me just need somewhere to get my feeling out and I still want to be able to do that with you all. 

Depression. 
I have struggled with depression for what feels like forever. Like everyone who has this, I have up and downs and my mood can bee all over the place. when I am struggling I will push my friends away. I know this last few months have been a bit like that. But I find it hard to say. I am struggling as there is still stigma around it. I don't like to bother my friends and to be honest. I'm scared they wouldn't understand me. I have been on fluoxetine for a number of years.  For me it works, it stabilises me and keeps me out of my head. Don't get me wrong it is not a complete fix. I still have ups and downs. But I think to know me you need to know this about me. 

CFS
chronic fatigue syndrome
I have been suffering this again on and off for a few years.  This one I really don't talk about. I have no idea why I don't but I just feel like it is not important. It is important to me. But I find people also have a huge stigma with this and me. I am an active person. I workout 3-4 times a week. I mountain bike for hours on end and I try to be as active as I can be. What people don't see is the bad days when I am so physically exhausted I cant go out. Some days I can't leave the couch. My body aches I feel like I haven't slept in my life. My memory is terrible and I can sleep for hours and never feel rested. 

IBS
irritable bowel syndrome.
This one has been with me for as long as I can remember. Unlike most people. I rarely suffer from the diarrhoea. I suffer from constant constipation.   I have bloating every day of my life. Sometimes so bad I have to put a hot water bottle on my stomach. If I am completely honest this is the one that really takes its toll on me. I have had to go through horrid colon flushes where I have to drink medicine for people who are having bowel surgery. I live on laxatives. so I have to make sure my diet and supplements are on point. This one really is annoying as there is so much planning when you take them. 

Asthma
I have had this again for years. I actually developed this in adulthood. Which is rare. I manage this with preventer and reliever inhaler. I actually wouldn't normally think about this, as I have had it so long but I have my yearly asthma check in a few hours with my doctor. My asthma is affected by things like dust. I was diagnosed with this when I was a size 22-22 uk. This was also the huge push I needed to lose weight and get healthy.
