Please read. I know it’s long. . I met with my vascular surgeon Thursday to go over my last CTA scans. I am so ready to move past 10/8/17 and I thought that appointment was going to be the beginning of that. Instead, it looks like I’m starting a whole new chapter. The tear itself in my artery is completely 100% healed. No flap, no sign that it even ever happened. Even the spot on my brain left by the stroke is barely viable anymore. Just this damn aneurysm. Because of it, my doctor is still not comfortable in stopping the plavix, to get back into the gym, to let my heart rate get over 90bpm, basically for me to return to normal. He said that if it were to rupture (which would be highly unlikely) it would be “end game”. He referred me to an apparently stellar neurosurgeon in DC. He is one of a half dozen or so surgeons in the country who can do surgeries on these types of things that are so close to the brain stem. He said if he can do it, it would be all healed. Life would go on as if it never happened. But the idea of getting anywhere near my brain stem absolutely terrifies me. The surgery comes with a 30% mortality rate. I told my vascular doctor that I know that type of surgery is dangerous and that people die from it or have another stroke and he said “Yes. That’s true. But you’ve come to a fork in the road and you’ve got lions on one side and tigers on another. There are no teddy bears”. (If you knew my surgeon you would get how he was saying this - he says it all with love, trust me.) I told him I know I am lucky. He said, “Yes, you are. You are trying to get back to doing yoga and running marathons but there are people who go through this that don’t make it or are in a wheelchair or are learning how to walk again”. Not much I could say to that. I’m trying so hard but this truly is starting to feel like an awful dream that has no good ending in sight. It’s been the longest year ever. It just all seems so surreal. A stroke from yoga. An aneurism at the base of my brain stem. I’m grasping at straws to try to make this seem like it’s all going to be ok but after yesterday, I have to admit I’m getting a little tired.

#Repost@blushmedia ・・・ Samantha, Tracy & Rose Kakuru Lawyer, PR & Design In 2005,our mum went for a biopsy and a lump was found in her left breast. She went to Nairobi to run more conclusive tests and the lump was found to be cancerous. Our dad returned home with her and they had to explain to us what was happening; the treatments & what cancer was because at that time we were young and didn't really know what was going on. She endured many trips to Nairobi within 2 years to undergo surgery and treatment afterwards. Then everything was well and we thought she was fine. She actually started her usual routine once again and even resumed work. A few years later, the cancer returned and we remember her telling us to our disbelief. "Like how could this be happening again?" "We thought it was gone!" But because she survived it the first time, we thought it would be the same this time round. It was a very, very trying time for us as a family. She was in alot of pain and it was heartbreaking to know we couldn't do anything about it. After a while, she got a specialized doctor at IHK where she now went for review and treatment. We were very hopeful because she was so strong and endearing still. You could not tell she was in pain and was so thoughtful all the time. But as time progressed, she only got worse though she honestly fought the good fight and kept strong for her family. She passed on March 8, 2009. We lost her at a young age and our father did all he could to comfort and take care of us. We have a thanksgiving service every year to honour her memory. #iamasurvivor#breastcancerawareness#theblushway#blushstories

GUYS WE'VE GOT TO LEAVE THE SUGARY SNACKS ALONE!!! Yes, I love me some pop tarts but is it healthy? HELL NO!!! It have over 35g of sugar in 1 tart and over 200 calories in 1. Pop tart has risen to the top of the cancer chart because of its Artificial coloring, high fructose and petroleum, which is in gas. Althought it taste good, it's not good for us.💜 #CancerAwareness#CancerSupport#CancerSucks#AggressiveCancer#CancerMatters#PublicHealthAwareness#PSA#Cancerfacts#CancerWarrior#CancerSurvivor#Cancer#cancertreatment#tumor#iamasurvivor#awareness#live#allcancersucks#cancercells#eattolive#publichealth#fruitandveggies#Nutrition#facts#pottarts#Deadlysnacks

In an effort to support breast cancer awareness “GG Gracefully” is shining the light on women and men who have faced the challenge of dealing with an unfortunate breast cancer diagnosis and said.... “not today, cancer!” I pray that the stories shared here will highlight the importance of early detection, education, prevention, and the necessity of a positive support system before, during, and after diagnosis, treatment, and recovery of Breast Cancer. I AM A SURVIVOR 🎀 Profile: Pat Booker “I’m cancer free!” Diagnoses: DCIS (Right Breast) Date:July 2016 “I was having pain in my left breast , so I went in for another mammogram (I'd already had my annual ) and thank god on the day I went in they were introducing the 3DMammogram which actually caught it in the right breast. I cried as soon as I heard CANCER and from there things moved rapidly , I had surgery 8/24/16 and found out it hadn't spread through my body. Thanking Jesus I started 6 weeks radiation after surgery and now 5 years of Hormone therapy . I have to be checked every 6 months for 3 years and then I go back to annual mammograms . I'm still living (NED) which means no cancer detected . I'm cancer free!” For more information or to support breast cancer research and prevention contact: www.supportbreastcare.org #thisisme#breastcancer#breastcancerawareness#nottodaycancer#survivor#cancersucks#iamasurvivor#hope#prevention#faith#testimony#mystory#recovery#over40#iamgggracefully@bookerpat17

⁣⁣ “It takes courage to walk away”⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ October is domestic violence awareness month and I don’t ever open doors to my personal life but it’s never too late to speak up.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ When I was 17, I met this guy who was a few years older and less than 6 months into our relationship I moved in with him. From there, our relationship was in HIS control. He began to cheat on me with multiple women and I suffered the consequences by questioning him. It started off as getting my hair pulled and pinching my body to being thrown to the ground, kicked around like a rag doll, choked until I passed out, multiple “unexplained” urgent care visits, shattered gums and to having bruises all over. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ After 2 1/2 years I was finally free but not completely. I blamed myself for everything that following year.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Narcissistic people hide behind a mask perceiving as an innocent person but in reality they suck you in. Everything is always YOUR FAULT and NEVER THEIRS. They get a high off of control and manipulation. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ Domestic abuse is one of the MOST COMMON yet LEAST REPORTED crimes in the world. It is taken lightly and so many victims are in relationships that are hard to get out. 1 out of 9 people die from domestic abuse, yet some victims feel they need to be in it as a means to survive. Domestic abuse is not just victimized towards women but men and children are also victimized.⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ If you’re in a similar situation, there are organizations that can help get you out to a safe place. If you were in a similar situation, I am very proud of you for standing up! Trust me, it gets better from here and you WILL get through this. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ My abuse ended almost 9 years ago and I’m in a much better place. I don’t have hate or any type of resentments but I have moved on from all that trauma it once caused me. ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ With that being said, if you got this far, thank you!! Lastly, please understand why the comments are disabled and also, please share this awareness as it may help someone in need.⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣ XOXO, Christine.💜 ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ #iamasurvivor#domesticviolenceawareness#resilience#speakup#beautifulsouls#strong

En el mes de la concientizacion sobre la Violencia Domestica yo Alexa Rodriguez, tuve el valor de salir de una realacion abusiva y toxica, solo yo y algunas personas fueron testigxs de lo que pase, si me case hace un año como muchas mujeres pensando que el hombre iba a cambiar, nunca es tarde para salir y reconocer cuando eres una persona que esta siendo abusada, el abuso no siempre es fisico, tambien es psicologico, verbal, economico.. y mas. Solo tienes que aprender a saber reconocerlo yo soy sobreviviente de abuso sexual, verbal, psicologico y economico... pude salir gracias a que pude ahorrar un dinerito para poder guardar mis pertenencias en un storage y para poder pagar la renta del vehiculo para mudarme... estoy sin hogar pero gracias a amigxs tengo donde dormir...! Si hago publica mi vida, si cuento mi historia es para que otras mujeres transgenero o cisgenero, o cualquier persona que este pasando lo mismo pueda saber que hay otra formas de sobrevivir y que no debemos tener miedo de hablar...! Se que algunas personas me criticaran pero solo yo se lo que pase. Gracias a todxs las personas que hasta hoy me siguen ayudando de varias maneras #stopviolence#iamasurvivor#imwonderwoman

I AM A SURVIVOR....🎀 Profile: Roxanne Pinkney "I shall live and not die". Diagnoses: Carcinoma (Left Breast) Year: “2002” It was 2002 when I got the call from my primary care physician and the call went like this..... "The test results revealed that you tested positive and you have carcinoma in your left breast." Me: Carci what? Dr.Sophia what is that? Doc: You have cancer in your left breast. And everything else she said was like the teacher on a Charlie Brown movie, wah. Wah, wah, wah....... In my mind, I heard nothing else, but I may die. Later that day, I met up with my fiancée, who is now my husband, and shared the news with him. I thought to myself, he may not want to get married considering this news; afterall, he had recently lost his mom, and probably wouldnt want to lose another person so close. I tell you the enemy had begun to sow seeds of doom and gloom in my mind. But, thanks be to God, Patrick responded, "Rox, We will get through this". I shared the news with my Pastor, my mom, and very few others, because I didn't know if I could handle all the various opinions and I initially was petrified, and needed to stay focused on God's Word and remain in faith and couldn't jeopardize being distracted. My Bishop at my church reminded me to prophesy Gods Word over my mind, body and spirit that "I shall live and not die". There was a very small group of intercessors who fasted and prayed with me. I laid hands on my breast and rebuked cancer and released God's Promise of healing. Still quiet during this time, I had surgery to remove the cancerous cells, and Fast forward, the report came back and I am healed! By the mercies of God I was not consumed. God I thank You!!!! It was HIS GRACE AND MERCY that healed, and kept me. Early Detection was also key! TO GOD BE ALL THE GLORY! Father, Keep me hastened to Your Will for my life because the safest place in the Universe is in the WILL of GOD. #thisisme#breastcancer#breastcancerawareness#nottodaycancer#survivor#cancersucks#iamasurvivor#hope#prevention#faith#testimony#mystory#recovery#over40#iamgggracefully

I never thought 2018 would lead me down this road of countless doctor’s appointments, scans, life altering surgery, and recovery. Let’s not forget the crazy amounts of money spent just on co-pays WITH insurance... I remember thinking this isn’t real; I’m a beautiful, successful, woman...but none of my accomplishments could take away my diagnosis of cervical cancer. A cancer survivor is one that has endured this horrible disease and refuses to give up hope. After surgery and/or treatment you’re left with so many questions and fears, but with your village you can make it!! Remember get your annual exams; early detection could save your life! #cancersurvivor#cervicalcancer#cervivor#iamasurvivor#getyouame

ABSOLUTELY true! Recovery is NOT easy but definitely possible. Even if we have to start over every single day! We're truly warriors for what we've survived and continue to endure now. We're STILL here, undefeated. Wow, sometimes I wonder How?? How is it possible that we're still pushing through and moving forward? The answer is we are genuinely full of strength and courage. Only we know what we've had to endure, struggle and what we continue to battle with but someway, somehow we're doing it. If that's not admirable then I don't know what is. We're so badass even if it doesn't feel like it. Our strength and resilience is just unexplainable. We are warriors in recovery. We are all worthy of recovery and recovery is possible. We deserve that and so much more.♡ #recovery#sexualassaultsurvivors#trauma#worthy#brave#victories#selflove#strength#warriors#healing#strong#iamasurvivor#breakingSilence#sexualassaultsurvivor#healing#living#learning#growing#beautiful#strength#hope#faith#survivor#firerose#childhoodsexualabuse#patience#love#wearesurvivors#warriors#youarenotalone#recovery#healing#journey

I will not hold anger for others mistakes or the abuse they inflected upon me any longer. Karma will punish them. The years of putting up the wall of armor are not needed. Don’t mask the pain....work thru it. Break on through to the other side. Shifting the energy is the key to enlightenment. : : Like energy attracts like energy. I am living with Intention. Consciously creating my space of peace. : : Surviving domestic abuse and rape does not make me a victim....it makes me a warrior goddess who is stronger than the pitiful who needed to over power me. Or at least try. The verbal abuse and manipulation they try....you can tune it out. Through meditation and honesty thru self reflection....you will find your strength. : : Live strong my warrior goddesses. Respect yourself and live in your truth. : : #livewithintention#spreadlove#iamasurvivor#domesticviolence#bethechange#warriorgoddess#behappy#calm#karmaisabitch
