My health is great. I am concerned about either mental or physical decline as I age and the prospect of a lingering death.

My social health… I need to share my life with someone, who is a good listener.

I feel like I should exercise more.

My blood pressure. Despite doing all the right things, it did not come down until I got on medication.

Hypertension is the undiscussed health issue amongst men. I was at a party last Christmas and mentioned I had gotten on BP medication. Suddenly five other men I’ve known for years said, “I’m on it too.”

My physique. I know it’s not the most important aspect of my health, but it’s for (probably irrational) psychological reasons that I wish I was bigger. Other than that, I’m pretty healthy and eat very healthily, too.

My reproductive health. When I’m trying to get pregnant, pregnant or breastfeeding, I take way better care of myself.
I realize taking care of myself in the longterm would have better results. I just never remember to!

Also, my sister is schizophrenic and I worry about passing that or something along the autism spectrum (they are often related) to my kids.

Not getting, or rather making myself get, enough exercise. Both physical and mental.

Not getting run over by a car.

Aging. I need to get a lot more physical, watch my diet, take supplements and get a better outlook. I want to age well. Meaning, be in decent shape, be well, fit and healthy. Wish me luck!

I have anxiety (borderline hypochondria) over my health and as a result I take meticulous care of it. I did not always which helps feed my anxiety. That’s my only real health issue thus far.

The possibility of heart disease. I have other health things that annoy me more and sadden me a lot, but heart disease or stroke is the heath issue that looms over me more and more.

The fact I’m a hundred lbs over weight, and having a real bitch trying to get it down.

I’ve taken way too many concussions.

My apparent “bad genes”.

Despite taking pretty good care of myself, I have been diagnosed over the past ten years with with type 2 diabetes, bad knees, bad shoulders, and (most recently) a heart condition.

As my doctor said, “If I just look at your vital signs and blood work, you should live forever. Too bad you have bad genes. Blame your parents.”

Stress. I have gained weight and been very depressed this last 18 months after undergoing some major life shifts. I am worried about heart disease from all this stress.

rojo's avatar

Pre 60’s weight gain, and the, I assume, nerve damage in my feet.

talljasperman's avatar

My dizzy spells are my priority.

OpryLeigh's avatar

Generally getting out of shape. I try to stay trim and reasonably fit to avoid the physical and mental problems that can be caused by being over weight.

Mental health. But it’s so much fun talking to those tiny little blue people in the kitchen.

hearkat's avatar

My wonky immune system and its attacks on my body that cause me constant pain (that varies in degree and location) and extreme fatigue.

jonsblond's avatar

My ocular migraines and vision.
