Don't know why I'm posting this really ... just a rant I suppose ... but it struck me the other day that my whole family are I'll. Me: - suffering from hyperparathyroidism and awaiting endocrinology referral. Am main carer for my elderly mum. Hubby:- in hospital next week for colonoscopy. Has not been feeling well for a while and has abdo pains and weird bowels. Had occult blood test which was negative but family history of cancer. Mum :- currently lives with us, suffering from dementia. Daughter:- has had a whole raft of problems recently e.g. Dislocated knee, bad period pains, sinusitis. Today she has a cold / chest infection that is aggravating her asthma. What a healthy bunch we are!
