So 2 years ago exactly ,my father drove me to the emergency admitting in the Royal Alexandra hospital in Edmonton, this was after 3 very long sleepless WEEKS of extreme pain and vomiting, I had been sick before and I have felt that pain before as well, for years I was tested and poked and prodded and Doctors found no explanation 🤷♂️ .
That pain usually went away after a day or so of toughing it out and not sleeping , and my life returned to normal.
This frigging time however it did not. My father finally said too damn bad and took me to the city. Within 2 hours I had my appendix out. Apparently it was so sick for so long that it formed to my intestines and created a big mess for the surgeons to remove , (my body learned to deal with it so no blood tests were ever indicative of appendicitis.)
My whole world was flipped upside down. I laid in bed for nearly 12 weeks in extreme pain and agony from post surgery bullshit. With blood coming out of places that shouldn’t.....
Lost my job cause they couldn’t wait for me to come back ( was waiting for surgeon approval to return to work) ..... no insurance .... no way of providing for my family......
I deal with depression on a fucking daily basis even when times are good ,so you can imagine how that went. My wife and my family were the only things that kept me going even when I couldn’t.
EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. I exercise. I do this for my mental state. And as a bonus it helps my physical well being also.
It truly helps me and I know this now. It took along time to figure that out.
I just wanted to post this to show people that there is hope. the bottom sucks but YOU CAN CHANGE .
Even if one person sees this and it makes a difference I will be content.
A lot is different now in my life. But it didn’t happen overnight. And it’s still a struggle everyday for myself ,and those around me.
Get some fucking help if you can’t do it yourself.
