A little bit about me…

I struggle.  I fight.  I have demons. 

And then I got happy.

I have bipolar depression.  I have fibromyalgia, and arthritis, and I have diabetes.  I spent most of my 54 years complaining and bitching and whining about my lot in life.  I was not a very pretty person to be around.  I didn’t even like myself.

This isn’t a story of my pain.  This is hopefully a story of my peace and my happiness.  A good story.

In June of 2014 a friend of mine passed away.  He was a good man, a happy man, he had great outlooks on life.  When he died I made a decision that I was not going to let diabetes kill me.  I was not going to die young and unhappy and sad and angry.  I didn’t know what to do, but I knew that something had to change.  I did the only thing I could think of.  I prayed.  And then I made a decision to live.  To get healthy and to be happy.

To say it’s always easy would be to lie.  I struggle, I fight and I have demons.  Today I choose to be healthy and I choose to be happy.
