In my divorce packet, it says to copy and include any major medical bills that you had prior to separation. Well I had two surgeries, went half blind temporarily and was treated for sleep apnea since last year <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> And he did not help pay for it, so I have spent the day going through alllllllllllll of my papers to include when I file. Sorting everything out.<br><br>
Well I realized that when I was married, I had a TON of medical bills not related to ANY of the above mentioned issues <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy"> Raging blood pressure, treated for depression, anxiety, and other physical ailments like getting strep twice, tons of ear infections, etc.<br><br>
Now I realize some of this can be explained away by the apnea treatment. But not all of it. I wonder now if just being under constant stress made me sick so much. I have only been to the doctor a few times since I left him, and it was all for this infection I had on my leg from a spider bite. And in fact I was taken OFF of my anxiety medicine AND my depression medicine.<br><br>
Oh and my BP has been in the normal range.<br><br>
Seriously, just a stack of medical bills for a range of issues <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/dizzy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Dizzy"><br><br>
Another reason to be thankful for my freedom <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

I also had a ton of hospital bills when I was in a bad relationship... nothing since I left! It's amazing (and scary!) what that kind of stress can do to your body.<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug"> I'm so happy you are 'free' and here's to hopefully better health! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy">

near the end of my first marriage i went and saw a well known naturopath in canada. he said he had never met anyone as young as me (32) with so many stress related illnesses. it wasn't a nice thing to hear, but helped me open my eyes a bit more to what was happening.
