My story...

Once upon a time …

Is always a great beginning but there is always “The End” that comes with it. One of my favorite moves is “Hope floats” When she gives us the quote “Childhood is what you spend the rest of your life trying to overcome. That's what momma always says. She says that beginnings are scary, endings are usually sad, but it's the middle that counts the most. Try to remember that when you find yourself at a new beginning. Just give hope a chance to float up. And it will...
I have had my share of beginnings and Endings, this is a new beginning. Just recently I had a very scary moment in my life that has change me. I had been sick for about a year going from Doctor to Doctor all having their own opinions on what was wrong with me. I was suffering from depression, back problems, hormone fluctuation, bawl problems, not sleeping (which brought on more problems) I never felt good and no matter what I did the day never ended without me braking down into tears. My family and friends didn’t understand, I didn’t understand. Was this all in my head. I’m an intelligent woman and very creative and active and my life became one black hole. I finely found a doctor that would listen and after months of tests and ultra sounds and more tests. I was in menopause at 43, and my insides were a mess. The beginning of December I went in for surgery. When I woke up I was informed it was worse than they thought and all they did was take pictures and I was going to have to undergo another surgery in two weeks with two more doctors assisting. I ended up having a total hysterectomy. My intestines were kinked off around everything and my kidney was being squeezed off. (That was what was causing the back pain) The surgery went well but the recovery did not. Two weeks after being home I found myself not feeling well at all. I live alone so I don’t have anyone to help me. I decided to take some pain meds and go to bed. About 6:00am my tiny poodle was going crazy barking at me I couldn’t wake up but he would lick my face and bark. I finely sat up and realized what had just happened my incision had ruptured open and I was bleeding out. At that moment I wondered would I die? Luckily I’m still here and after a long recovery and emergency visits and Home health care I’m turning over a new leaf. You see my body was not prepared for a major surgery like that. My muscles weren’t in the best shape, I had too much weight on and I had been on a total calorie restriction diet which I didn’t have all the nutrients in my body to handle it. I now know its better to diet with all food groups and in moderation.

This is my beginning… to become healthier that I ever have been, and I don’t want to see that light at the end of the tunnel for a long time. I’m here and I coming up fighting. (Kick boxing is good for you isn’t it lol) This is a new chapter in life and I’m going to make it the best one.
