Just wondering

AntiSpam: orange


Hi, I'm a 20 year old college student with VVS, which has been pretty well under control for the last few months. I really want to try some extreme sports, like skydiving, but I'm not sure how that would affect my VVS. Right now I'm active but do things like roller blading, biking, hiking, canoeing, etc...nothing that extreme. Anyone ever done anything more extreme? How dangerous would it be for someone with VVS? I know this is kind of a weird question, but I struggle so much with health problems and I know my VVS will flare up again--I just want to do as much as I can and have as much fun as possible (you know, live life to the fullest...) while it's under control. I don't really want to ask my doctor about it until I have had some I completely crazy like my friends tell me or could it actually be possible?
