Surving

Story image

I had to learn at a young age how to survive with Afib which was not easy being married to an alcoholic and a spousal abuser but quickly learned that my life was very important and got out of that marriage but some years later suffered from a Cerebrovascular Stroke and now fighting to survive that.

    Like i told everyone while i was in the hospital until yesterday its mind over matter I can let all this control me or I can control it and get healthy by eating a low carb and diabetic diet like my doctor wants me to as well as proper exercise but still sad and confused since i only weighed 165 before the end of March and now weigh 215 breaks my heart that i have gained instead of losing

    On top of your other issues there is nothing like gaining weight to make a person feel down.   I hear you there.  I can't lose weight either!   You can been through so much and achieved so much you can get some weight down too!   If you want a weight loss internet buddy just let me know.   I got plenty of my own I need to get off too.

    Having to wait on physical and speech therapy since I was not given a chance when I had this Stroke and Afib Tachycardia flare up at the same time
