I don’t know what my cholesterol was till the last 10 years or so and its always been on the high side.
Speaking of triggers, I think my trigger was when i hemorrhaged during delivery 10 years ago. It was a home birth and the placenta partially detached and then my uterus stopped contracting so I just bled out. Placenta wouldn’t budge. Called 911, EMTs arrived, I had no detectable blood pressure, but was still conscience…just barely. Anyway at the hospital they surgically removed the placenta and gave me blood transfusions. This seemed to be the turning point in my health. Add to it that 2 years later I had the same thing happen again, though this was a hospital birth. After this second hemorrhage things went downhill faster.
So I wonder if a trigger could be like what I experienced instead of a virus/illness?
