    My health condition

    A lot of people have contacted me asking about my health problems. I am not knocking on death's door I don't think. I fell and broke my back several years ago and still have lingering effects. Some days it really bothers me and I can hardly walk. Most of the time I get around pretty well and you wouldn't know I had a problem. I have had some heart problems and I have that pretty much stabilized and my last two chekcups were OK. I have a breathing problem from so many years of smoking. It's called Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH). It is high pressure in the arteries from my heart to my lungs that cause me to be extremely short of breath. Believe it or not my treatment is taking the same pill that is used for sexual dysfunction! I take the blue pill and I am almost 100% able to breath normal! But the catch 22 is that the pills cost over $500.00 for a months supply. So I have to buy them just a few at a time and ration them out for when I want to do something physical like treasure hunting. So that's what's eatin' me and I hope you guys don't think I'm about to kick the bucket. Thought I owed you an explanation. Monty

When you said heart problems, I am glad that you are keeping it monitered. My son was born with a deformed heart, and has to have regular checkups.

    Anyhow take care of yourself, and I hope God will bless you and yours, meeting all of your needs, wants, and desires.

    towelrackdisease ... haha
    let's see how can i put it politely....hmmmmm

    it can last four or more hours

    you may have to carry a notebook in front of you even if you don't need to actually use the notebook

    Wearing loose shorts would not be a wise option

    you may poke out an eye to persons of a short staure - about the three feet area

    your wife or girlfriend may show a lot of attention to you in areas of a intimate nature

    you don't have to use your hands to say "They when thata way"!

    anybody else want to try to explain it ??

    Re: My health condition

    The Viagra works for my illness because it dilates the arteries in the body. It is not selective as to which arteries it dilates. So, if the arteries from your heart to your lungs is experiencing high pressure, the pill dilates it so the blood can flow thru easier without the excess pressure. In other words you are getting more blood to the lungs that in turn pump more oxygen to the other parts of the body. The high pressure in the arteries also causes the rt. chamber of the heart to work overtime and without treatment will enlarge and eventually wear itself out. I already have some enlargement of a heart chamber but it is not critical as long as I have my meds. PAH if untreated will eventually lead to a massive heart attack and death or require a heart/lung transplant if you live long enough. It progresses in phases and I am at phase 3 on a scale of 1 to 5. So, that's why I have to have the meds regardless of how expensive it may be. This is something I have had for years apparently. I remember as a teenager I was very athletic but ran out of breath easy so I couldn't run long races. I think, the coaches thought I wasn't training but I was, just couldn't breath right. And I went to dozens of doctors all my life with the shortness of breath complaint and it is just now being diagnosed! I had got to the point where I couldn't do much at all physically without panting for breath so I couldn't and can't exercise and started putting on weight. I try to eat healthy but starving and not exercising is as dangerous as not doing anything ergo I gain weight! I've never had a weight problem until the last year. Now I am having a hard time convincing my medicare supplemental insurance that I want Viagra for something other than sexual gratification (not that there is anything wrong with that ). Oh well, old farts talk about their ailments and I guess I are one! Monty

    P.S. That disease is Priapism! Pronounced pry a pism.

    Monty,

    You hang in there an take your meds. I think there are some other meds on the market that might be cheaper. I will look and PM you. That is a lot for a one med. Maybe your doctor can switch one. Will be praying for you.
