A Quest for a Healthier Life

In 2008 I met my fiance', who happens to live in Carthage, TX.  Since frequenting his place, tucked back in the country, I have developed several conditions due to the well water being contaminated.

I have never been a girly, girl...but I do appreciate my skin, hair and nails...all of which have been affected due to semi-poor diet and bacteria filled well water.

It took me 30 years, but now after having Chronic Asthma since the day I was born and recently developing Chronic Cystitis (recurring severe bladder/uti infections), I appreciate my "health" more and I am trying to eat, drink and live a better life.

I also suffer from obesity, severe depression, social anxiety, allergies and high blood pressure.  My migraines have gone away...thank goodness!  Some days I have bad problems with my back or knees, but this is not an every day pain.

It is hard for a lot of people to understand these conditions because most are not ones that exibit external signs.  Some people tend to think that if they can't see you hurting, it doesn't exist.  Please do away with these thoughts!  Just because someone puts on a happy face and stays strong on the outside, it doesn't mean that nothing is wrong on the inside.

I am determined to do everything I can to make a better life for myself and my family.  I want to be healthier and happier every day.  I am doubt I will give into tempations every now and then.  My focus is to hold onto the wagon instead of letting go completely if I get bumped off track.

My future husband and my family are my inspirations.  I want to be able to do things with them that I never have.  I want to be able to look at pictures and not hate every one of them.  It will be a long journey, but I have determination!
