I have a history of illnesses and long-term disabilities in my family, and am aiming to change my life for the better. I have way too much to do with my life, and am not ready to let it end now!
I am only near 20 lbs overweight, but suffer from a heart murmur. I had open-heart surgery at 7 months, and 8 years old... I'm trying to work my heart hard enough so that I don't fail at an early age... since I'm not too overweight, I'm already off to a good start, but I remember how hard it's been throughout my life, to feel like the different one, the outcast, the one that's "behind" from everyone else... all things in life carry this feeling, not just health at times. Other than my health, I've always been "out there," am very open-minded and willing to take on new challenges (fun, or otherwise) in my life. :-)
I also want to feel better in my mind... I was recently diagnosed with PCOS(Polycystic ovarian syndrome) after trying to conceive with my husband of 3 years; it led me to start seeing a therapist... I have, since then, been diagnosed with accute anxiety, bipolar, borderline personality disorder and social anxiety... it became a very difficult time in my life, and I nearly ended my life in March, 2014. Since then, it has given me the ability to see things in a completely different light, and fight through my issues.
I suffer from ADD, and both OCD and depression already (both are intertwined with most individuals). I have a hard time dealing with stressful situations and often break down over very small matters. I want to work to improve my mental health as well as my overall physique.
I can't wait to feel great!!! Bring it!
I'm hoping to live a better, healthier lifestyle, where I can travel more and have longer to live my life! :-D
I'm trying to set enough strength training, cardio and everyday activities into my exercise routine! :-)
I was born and raised in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and now live in Del City, OK. :-) I have 2 cats, 2 chinchillas, 2 dogs, a fish, and a loving husband, William. I am happily married, and enjoy reading, watching movies, dancing/ listening to music, knitting and embroidery. :-)
I enjoy anything that's "out there," weird, underground or just plain crazy... :-) It's where I come from. ;-)
