Why I'm Here...

Saturday, August 16, 2008

I have watched my husband's health decline over the last three years. He has a Chiari brain malformation and degenerative disk disease among other health issues. As a self-employed mechanic, he has a hard time working now and is probably about to be approved for disability. We have suffered great financial losses over the past three years. As a result of the stress from all of this...I have packed on the pounds! I turned to food for comfort as I worried about things.
I am very unhappy with my body! I have had to buy bigger blue jeans...a size that I never imagined that I would ever have to buy!!
Thankfully, my husband loves me for the me on the inside, and he thinks I'm sexy anyway! We are closer now than we've ever been!
