New year, 2013 here I am!!

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

It has been 2 yrs since ive been on. So much has happened, I have a stroke in august 2012 i descovered I have diabetes,high blood pressure. It was scary to think that I almost died!! The doctors really thought I was! It has been 4 months and ive lost 68 pounds and still going, I have my kids to live for. I am dealing with anger issues new since the stroke, my taste buds have changed, it has been an eye opener for sure. So i am ready to live my life, one near death experience is all i need. I am hoping to lose en ough weight to get off some meds, im on 10 meds right now! But i dont feel "why me" i did it to myself. Now i have been lucky becuase i get a second chance on life!!!

    my best friend from school had a stroke 10 years ago and we are celebrating her life and improved ability to function this week (along with my birthday). She is now doing research to help other stroke victims
