I was going back and forth on whether to post this or not, but I was told I should. This is not being written for sympathy in any way.
I am typically a very healthy eater…I was a vegetarian for 15 years and a pescatarian for the last 5 years. I eat really healthy about 75% of the time. But since I have had to hustle more with Uber this year my eating habits have gotten worst and I have not been exercising the way I should. I am currently 5-11 175lbs 39yo
And mostly a healthy energetic active young man.
Well today, after having some really tight leg issues and leg pain I decided it was probably just a strained muscle and like the typical man I was just gonna go play thru it. Now I was only out there for doubles for maybe 15 min…next thing I know…I am waking up on the court with blood everywhere. I had passed out bust my chin wide open and scrapped up all my limbs
I already had a genetic defect that cause me kidney issues but that is not the tale of this story. We sit for long hours, are always chasing the $, grabbing what we can to eat when we can and mostly it’s not healthy foods. Can/Rideshare drivers tend to be over weight, do less exercise, inclined to be diabetic, have high blood pressure and kidney issues because we don’t always #GoPee when we should or have a place to do so. So my post about having to piss in cups and shit…well it was a real concern for me because as I go into kindey failure I have urgency and sometimes it just won’t wait
But my blood pressure is thru the roof, my cholesterol is high, and they are currently running other test to see if it was dehydration, blood clots or a heart issue.
Extreme A type personality, masochistic, overly analytical and hot headed lead to a very Stressful existence for me. And I am sure that contributes to it all.
I say a this to say… Live life. Stop being negative. Be positive. Be what you want out of life. Live what you want out of life. Lately I have been eating horribly because it was quick and easy. Guys and Gals…eat healthier. Exercise. Even if it’s only walking 30 mins a day. Get out of the Car a d take breaks instead of sitting for 8-10-12 hrs a day… At least an hour minimum. I know this is long but I really want everyone to understand the need to take care of your mental health and your physical health. Hope you guys are out there making money$$$ while I sit here looking like a Cyborg lol until they get all this shit off me…I’m at hour number 6 and I’ll be here thru tomorrow evening probably… ️
