My Health! I began having health problems, which were originally diagnosed as Lupus, then Mixed Connective Tissue Disease. I also suffer from Early Degenerative Disc Disease. So, I'm in pain 24 hours, most days my back and shoulders are sensitive to touch, scalp sores, hair breakage and shedding, dizzy spells, migraines, eye sensitivities, I get rashes from being in the sun, swelling of the hands and feet, fatigue some days, and insomnia others. Some days I had to slide out of bed and crawl to the bathroom. Some days I would be stuck in bed for several minutes unable to get up, because my back would lock up. Needless to say, because of all this, I developed Depression. I started feeling sorry for myself, and eventually gave up. My daughter encouraged me, and became my strength to try again at this thing called living. So I prayed and asked God for the strength and guidance that I needed to try again. Each day, I began taking baby steps to turning my life around. My symptoms are getting under control, and my pain control is getting better. And although most of the exercises I do don't burn calories, they help condition my body, and increases my mobility. So my inspiration to keep going, is being able to live life, and never go back to that place that I was, when I had given up. emoticon

Hey Ladies
What inspires you to keep going on this journey of getting healthy?
Is it your family? your career? is it you? You are doing this for you. You deserve to be healthy and happy. YES YOU DO!

For me my inspiration is my kids and my mom. They love me unconditionally no matter how I look. I feel I should be healthy so I could live and happy life with them.

Continue to be a blessing,

Denise

Cheers,
Exquisite Dee
