I just recently was diagnosed with High Cholesterol and was perscribed Welchol. I would like to know what else I can do to lower my cholesterol and would love someone to explain what high cholesterol does and what it is as if i were a 3-year-old. I've been told I'm young to have such a high cholesterol and am a little worried cause I don't know anything about it. Are there ways I can test my cholesterol without having to go to the doctor for blood work? I have a very hard time with change and wonder how many of my favorite foods I'm going to have to give up. Reading the results of my bloodwork: Lipid Panel Cholesterol, Total is 243. - HDL Choleserol is 46. - LDL Cholesterol Calc is 177. Help please what does this all mean!!

I have had PMDD for over 10 years I am currently 35 and it seems it got to the worse point in my 30's. I have been on beyaz which helped in the beginning but now it doesn't and really I continue take it to control my heavy bleeding and acne included with my hormonal ups and down. I have also been on prozac for a while, I stopped it and started again. It helps a little but I hate being on so many...
I miss traveling with my husband. Has anyone found a specific site regarding cruising for widow/widowers or any sightseeing trips. Not interested in being with couples and kids,,,I realize a cruise ship will have a portion size of families and couples, but perhaps they also put together a part of the cruise ship for groups of widows/widowers????
