Hi Everyone, I’m back,

Told Kyle the reason I quit Wealthy Affiliate was to go on a hiking tour; it didn’t last long. As a previous premium member with Wealthy Affiliate, I kept procrastinating and really didn’t accomplish much. Due to circumstances beyond my control I now have a new outlook on life and hope to make Wealthy Affiliate work for me; I’m back.

When you get older, you find out things that you wish you had found out about when you were younger; things that could have changed your life. Now I’m stuck with these things for the rest of my life.

I just found out why I get tired and nauseated if I do too much exercise. Simply explained and not to get technical, it all has to do with early stress and high blood pressure. When I was young and in business I went through a lot of stress, which led to high blood pressure, which in turn led to Kidney disease.

I always wondered why I felt weak and nauseated at times, and just recently found out while I was hiking in the mountains of British Columbia. After having a few bouts of nausea and weakness I went to see a Doctor in emergency at a local hospital; it was just my luck I met a Doctor that has the same problem and he simply explained it to me (next paragraph). Of course he did every test possible while I was in emergency at the hospital.

Explanation: In my case bad stress during a long business life led to high blood pressure and high blood pressure over a long period of time led to the destruction of blood vessels in my kidneys. After some extreme exercise, like hiking to the top of a mountain, my muscles metabolized, giving off Creatinine, a waste by-product that is flushed through my kidneys. If my kidneys are only operating at 80 percent because of destroyed blood vessels, they will have a problem getting rid of the Creatinine, causing my weakness, nausea, blurry vision and other symptoms.

I want to put a website together talking about stress and high blood pressure, and how these variables led to my bad kidney function. If there were Doctors and others belonging to Wealthy Affiliate who can help me with this topic, it would be greatly appreciated. Stress and high blood pressure, I know about, kidney function is new to me.

On the website I will only be talking about how this problem effects me, it doesn’t necessarily effect others the same way. They would have to go to a doctor to get their own diagnosis; chemistry varies.

I’m looking forward to concentrating my efforts on making Wealthy Affiliate work for me.

I wish everyone the best

Seems reasonable enough to me. Nice job on setting your goals.

The thing about online success that I have come to learn is that there is room for ALL of us within the online world. There is no marketplace that is bigger and there is nowhere that represents this kind of opportunity, regardless of your niche, passions and interests (and it only continues to grow!!)

Take action on the training here at WA, immerse yourself within the awesome and helpful community here at WA... and ask for help when you need it. You will be well on your way to achieve your goals Tom!

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Welcome back to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Hi Tom!
Since I quit my stressful job years ago I don't have high blood pressure anymore... My body is very thankful for this and it's one big reason not to go back to a 9-5 job anymore.
And I have only one kidney, I had to remove one many years ago because it was not working so well since I was little. I am fine with only one kidney which is a little bit bigger than normal and it's been working for two.
What I want you to say: I'm supporting my kidney with healthy nutrition and some good natural stuff... I don't have to take medications and I'm fine with it...
But, I know, it's not the same you have, my blood vessels are ok...
Hope you are finding your solution for your body!
Cheers, Gerlinde

Hi Gerlinde,

Bad stress to me is definitely the root cause of many deteriorating bodily functions.

All I'm trying to do now, is prevent my kidneys from getting any worse.

I'm trying to eat right, among other things. I think if a person can eliminate bad stress, eat right and do a little exercise, you will live a long healthy life.

Keep in touch
All the best
Gerlinde Premium
Yes, those are the most important things we can do!
Take care and have a good time here! :)

Hey, Tom, thanks for following me back.
Hmmmm, "OlderGuy" I've got to wonder who between he two of us is older (I'll be 68 in Jan).
I'm very interested in your health issues, I have a healthy lifestyle website. I don't have high blood pressure, but my wife does and I'd like to keep her around as long as I can.

I certainly don't believe in extreme exercise, I believe in moderate daily exercise and "Burst" training. I don't want to add a link to my website here, but you know where to find it if you're interested. Under the Exercise section there's two articles I think you should look at, Burst training and Best 30 Minute Workout. I'd really enjoying exchanging notes with you.

Hello Tom,♫Welcome back! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for following me.

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I also made a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link on the right (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please add a comment to this message or leave them on my profile.
Success building your business in 2016. See you around, Greetings Loes

Hi Shawn,

Thank you for your response; I will definitely go on your profile and check out your sites. Since I'm not a seasoned Wealthy Affiliate marketer yet, my opinions might be more related to appearance, than anything else.

Thanks again

Hi OlderGuy,

Thanks for the follow. It's great to have you back here at WA. You'll get a lot of references by checking profiles of other WA members and going into those websites about health or about kidney conditions if there are specific ones.

I always try to get inspiration from the works of our colleagues here at WA, not only in writing but most importantly, on how to generate passive income. This place is a goldmine!

Wishing you a Great Life!

Hi RuelG,

I read your profile, very impressive. My son is a Mechanical Engineer.

Sounds like you need a challenge, you need a life that is more subjective than objective.

Your probably a true salesmen at heart waiting to bust out at the seams, you want to be really creative and innovative; you can do all these things at Wealthy Affiliate.

Don’t worry about the money; if you work hard, it will come, just set a goal.

Good Luck

Hi Stuart1,
Sorry to hear about your dog; you get so attached to animals it's like loosing a family member, or worse. I'm also, a 50 year cigarette smoker and still smoke. Pot makes me tired, could never really smoke it, I'm a beer drinker, or was, until I found out about my kidney problem.
I'm starting to eat right, but it's tough changing your life style.
Way past my bedtime; have to get up early tomorrow.
Keep in touch
Talk to you later
