Rate Yourself: How Healthy Do You FEEL? by oyinda3(f): 5:43am On Dec 23, 2010
How healthy do you feel on a scale of 1 to 10.
I'm asking this because health and well being are extremely important for happiness and good quality of life.
I just wanted to survey nairalanders on how they perceive their health and what issues they are worried about.
so give yourself a score and explain why.

personally, i'll give myself a 6.5/10. I need to watch my eating and sleeping habits. I need to do healthier things in general.

Honestly, i'll rate myself 9/10. First of i give God glory cos he's blessed me wit divine health, i rarely fall ill. That aside, i try to understand my body system so i kno how to attend to wat it needs at different times. It may just be to rest or drink more water. If i dont at such times, i may feel funny or hav a headache hence i try to attend to my body needs. Also i may feel funny if i overwork myself. There are times we push our body over d limit and our bodies react/complain by givin signs. Wen i continue at such point i may feel feverish. So basically, i try to understand my system.

Prolly a 5/10 grin
I have allergies which is hereditary, about 85% of my family share the same allergies
I eat junk sometimes but i also eat healthy. Having veggies and fruits with my meals is sort of a norm. And i eat over 5times a day lipsrsealed
My sleeping habits is erratic. Sometimes i sleep 5hrs, sometimes 10hrs.
I don't work out. . .not even if you pay would i do it but i'm a swimmer.
Despite all these, i'm kinda resilient plus take care of my mental health in the sense that when i get stressed, i do what i must to relieve the stress.

VIPICO:

How can u truthfully and effectively rate your own health? A doctor should do that after a comprehensive check on u


this topic is more about how you feel about your health. undecided .
your doctor cannot feel your headache, stomach pains, leg pain. Your doctor does not experience your weight gain, weigh loss, diarrhea and car accidents with you. So even doctors cannot truthfully and effectively rate your health. They cannot read your mind and know what you are feeling just by looking at you. Even for babies, parents have to explain to the doctor what is wrong with their child. I feel sorry for you if you think doctors know it all. I've visited doctors so many times to know that they are not omnipotent. The best doctors are those that can communicate well with patients.It is all up to you to gauge the severity of your pains and health and communicate this well with your doctor so that he/she can diagnose you effectively.

besides, will you visit a doctor in the first place if you feel 10/10 healthy? ppl only go to the doctor when they [b]feel [/b]unhealthy.
so plz. rate yourself. how do you feel about your health on a scale of 1-10?  cool

@oyinda
I really do not see any reason why you should "feel sorry for" me. I never said doctors are all-knowing. But now that u have explained the context of your post, u are entitled to your opinion.
You will readily agree with me that there are "silent killers"- as far as diseases go - such as hypertension and allied ailments.
I also disagree with you that you should not visit a doc if u feel 10/10 healthy. How many times have we heard of seemingly healthy people (who must have been feeling healthy) slump and die?

On the other hand, I have personally worried myself sick a couple of times in the past, believing I have some kind of sickness only for me to get to the hospital and the doctor finds out it's nothing to worry about.

I used the words 'truthfully' and 'effectively' in my earlier post to underscore the need for unbiased and objective assessment.

Feeling alone can sometimes be deceptive. That's the point I'm trying to make.

Just to underline Vipico's statements. How u feel should not be used as an indication of well being. By the time u get any symptoms anyway, u are already unwell, not to mention ailments and diseases that rarely show any symptoms. The question the OP asked was - 'how do u rate ur health?'. The truth is that u can rate ur health based on ur opinion, but u are highly likely to be wrong if u are basing it on how u 'feel'. Only a health proffesional performing a host of specific tests can do that accurately.

@vipico and romeo,
good for you. I'm glad and very happy for you.
for those of us that can't afford all these specialists and physicians to tell us 24/7 what we should be feeling, let us assess our health here and talk about how we FEEL*
now let the topic continue in peace. thank you. cool


@topic, i feel 7/10 healthy today. slept like a baby and went for a long walk yesterday. my new years resolution is to eat more vegetables and learn how to eat better.



* i'm just so sorry that the word "feel" offends some of you. that's too bad. skip and go on to the next topic if you don't like it.
