knocked down but it's time to get back up

Monday, July 08, 2013

I haven't been around much because I've been dealing with my mom whose mind has been taken over by mental illness. I was half way watching what I ate and doing a tiny bit of exercise. Well yesterday my sister died from a heart attack. She was 38, just a couple of years older than me. I HAVE to do something and I have to do it NOW!

  That's horrible, and particularly tough because she was so young. I'm so very sorry, sweetheart.

Please take care of yourself and find others to encourage you in these hardships. If you don't have those sort of friends and family, a counselor may be able to help.

Hang on. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I am so sorry about your sister's passing at such a young age and about your mom's declining health. My heart goes out to you.

Set your health goals in achievable steps; but really, just make the right next health choice every chance you get. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help you.

    Thank you! Yes, it's actually really scary because earlier yesterday morning I had thought of going to Urgent Care because I was having chest pains. Our older sister had been diagnosed with congestive heart failure at the age of 30 but she ended up dying in a car wreck a few months later. I'm sure if that had not happened then she would have had a heart attack someday. This isn't something I can play with anymore!
