Just me

I have been trying to lose weight for years, then 2 1/2 years ago I had 3 strokes - 1 being in the brainstem that affects my balance and tolerance for stress/heat/cold. I also have lightheadedness/ dizziness/nausea with visual stimulus/activity since the stroke. But the MD was surprised I was alert and talking and active and basically alive with how close the stroke was to the center of the brain stem, so God has a plan.

I have been trying to lose weight for years, then 2 1/2 years ago I had 3 strokes - 1 being in the brainstem that affects my balance and tolerance for stress/heat/cold. I also have lightheadedness/ dizziness/nausea with visual stimulus/activity since the stroke. But the MD was surprised I was alert and talking and active and basically alive with how close the stroke was to the center of the brain stem, so God has a plan. After the stroke I had to go on disability as I was a nurse and was terminated from my position and unable to find another. I was trusting God and doing ok with it. I have stage 3 chronic Kidney failure developed as a side effect of taking Prilosec prescribed by my ENT for laryngophraygeal reflux. (Yes, I was one of the lucky ones to get the rare side effect) But was doing well while living in Florida getting in swimming for exercise.(I didn't need to balance for that) But, after a diagnosis of Endometrial Cancer and surgery for that, expenses added up and for other reasons God had me move back to Indiana where all my family was. Now I am not able to swim for exercise as I haven't found anyplace close yet, so I am walking with a walker for short periods, and do have an exercise bike that I can do for up to 10 min. It has been stressful, but God is good, so Praise God hopefully I can get back on track. I am finding it very challenging, but I can do all things through Him who gives me strength. He has been so good to me, I want to be able to glorify Him in all I do.

Thank you for the support! Learning from what works and does not has been a problem in the past leading to gains, depression and time away from Spark. It's different this time around. Have a great rest of the week!
