I'm Not Iron Man
Well, I decided to have the Doc check out my physical well-being. It seems those in the family are like superheros, but we all have one weakness that we have to overcome.
It turns out I don't have the iron problem that "Jor-El" has. I'm beginning to accept that I have respiratory weakness. Asthma and alergies seem to be my kryptonite in addition to years of untreated sleep apnea.
I know I've had this problem for a long time. I remember Chris jumping off his bunk and shaking my bed to get me to stop snoring.
So my ferratin is fine, but borderline diabetic. From what I read, shedding my excess weight should solve all my other issues. So I'm making small changes to my diet which have been helping a little. I'm consulting with my Doc on a monthly basis to monitor progress or regress.
So fellow superheros here is how I imagine you guys. Let me know if I am off and what superhero you really are.
Dad = Iron Man
Mom = Jean Grey (AKA Ms Marvel)
Becky = Storm
Jennifer = Electra
Chris = Spiderman
David = Incredible Hulk
Melissa = Wonder Woman
Emily = Rogue
Dara = Invisible Girl
