I am a full time career for my husband who has advanced Parkinson's disease and a chronic bad back. I have a pituitary tumour which I have had for over 40 years. High blood pressure, cholesterol, cardiomyopathy. Lumps in both breasts for past 6 1/2 years. There is a history of cancer in both sides of my family and heart disease. I also have Type 2 diabetes.
Over the years I have put on weight, lost it and put it back on - hence the blood pressure, cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. Now that I have to care for my husband, I need to get myself fitter and lose weight so that I am able to look after him. I have found the program very beneficial and helpful. It is good to be able to do this in a group and be able to discuss problems with others who have similar problems.
