Spill My Guts...

Sunday, February 10, 2013

Well, here is the down and dirty story of me: I am 50 years young. I have a 29 year old daughter who is a business woman and doing excellent in her career. My husband is a sweetheart and we are still very much in love.

In March of 2010 I became very ill with Fibromyalgia and something called Hashimoto's Disease. Both attack my immune system. At the same time I was also diagnosed with Degenerative joint disease and suffer from neuropothy from the Fibro. Last but not least; I have a blood disorder. I give myself shots every two weeks.

I went from a size 6 to a current size 18 (UUggghhh) almost over night. to make matters worse, When my husband was out of town someone broke into our house, beat me within an inch of my life and raped me in 2010 also. I was knocked out immediately while I was sleeping so I do not remember anything except waking up in outrageous pain. It was not a good year for me.

I had a knee replacement in March of 2012 and had to have 2 additional surgeries due to my knee cap dislocating. The last time was in September of 2012 , and I came down with a very terrible staff infection. Eight days in the hospital and six weeks with a P.I.C.C. line in my arm cured it and thankfully I did not lose hardly any flesh from it. Things could have been so much worse. Inspite of everything, I am still happy and so blessed that things are not worse. God loves me emoticon

My dog Sofie is a gift from God. She is a Blue Tick Heeler Hound dog. I rescued her from a local shelter and she has been my faithful companion ever since and she is very protective of me. She is the best animal I have ever had.

Both my husband and me are retired so I have him here with me every day which is also another wonderful blessing. Now all I need to do is lose this darn weight. I know it will be hard work and sometimes disappointing, but I can handle it and I will plow through it. I want and need to be that beautiful woman my husband fell in love with a long time ago. Oh, he still loves me very much!!! There is just more of me to love!!! LOL emoticon

    I have two rescued animals, a rottweiler and a cat. I wanted to keep Sherlock, but I think my rottweiler would have tried to kill him. I know my pets act silly when they sense I am depressed as if they know that laughter helps.

    You are a survivor! When I met my husband, I weighed 140 lbs. and have shot up to 275 lbs. this year. You have a beautiful view where you live.
