Even though I was raised pretty health conscious, I had gained some weight after my husband’s back surgery went bad, and I had to get a desk job, and financial, emotional, spiritual, you name it struggles, lol….then after losing him in a tragic wreck, eating comfort foods……so the last 6 years, I have been trying to do much better, to stay healthy, to be here a long time, to make sure I see grandkids one day, and to make sure my kids don’t lose another parent, at least for a long time….so I lost about 60 lbs 🙂 yeah! felt great but…..
About 2 years ago, I had some pretty major *female* issues….that of course I stayed quiet about except to my doctors, who I kept trying to explain I was not over-dramatizing the issue, like some do, it was serious and I knew it….finally after about a year, they put me in for some testing and a procedure, hoping I wouldn’t have to have a surgery, but also test to make sure I didn’t have the same problems as my mom.
When they put me in the hospital, that was supposed to be a 1-2 hour procedure, they freaked out saying my blood was SO low they were surprised I was still here, and ordered 2 bags of blood *stat*…..ugh….(I tried to tell them how much I was losing every day)…..Thankfully *someone* must have still wanted me here on this earth <3 The procedure worked great for a few weeks, then back to the same problems....so choices were full blown surgery and 8 weeks recovery (which I did not want, or have that time, I didn't do well sitting still for 2 weeks after the last one lol) or go on the pill for the first time in my life (funny with husband in heaven) lol Well that worked, thankfully, but with that I gained 45 lbs back, which has been irritating....and eating right and exercising I was still not seeing results. A couple weeks ago, saw the doctor, and decided to stop that pill, since I don't like to take meds anyway, and thankfully no issues with that! So now major sticking perfect to get this weight back off! But just seeing this and remembering how awful I felt.....I am super grateful and thankful for LIFE today 🙂 and ladies, if you think you have an issue, push your doctors to check it for you! <3
