Hi everyone, joined the team about a week ago and then got caught up in dealing with family issues and issues of daily life in general.....so let's try this again.... Am looking forward to getting to know all of you and be active in the group threads, etc... can always use assistance/advice on financial issues, etc.
Am 59 years old and have been disabled for 4-1/2+ years due to heart and lung problems, not to mention diabetic complications. Have had 2 open heart surgeries, last of which they did not give me much of a chance; have congestive heart failure and major breathing problems. Also have diabetes mellitus, type 2, with severe diabetic neuropathy of both legs and hands. Having been a business woman working in medicine all my life, am finding it very hard to be disabled and dealing with a total life change. After sevral years of being totally "on the bottom," I actually prayed to die... but, instead through the grace of God I was started on a spiritual journey that I would not give up for anything in the world; this is my first, second and third chosen activity of each and every day. I rejoined Spark in support of my niece with her Spark Program and in so doing learned lifestyle changes, getting several health issues under better control, and doing fitess plan made it possible to do more than I ever dreamed of doing again, not to mention losing weight along the way! The MOST AWESOME THING I HAVE BEEN BLESSED WITH BESIDES REJOINING SPARK AND ALL IT HAS TO OFFER IS THE GROWTH OF MY SPIRITUAL JOURNEY TO BEYOND WHAT WORDS CAN EXPLAIN!!!... all of which I am eternally grateful for.
