Happy Valentines Day ;-)
Me and My cousin Tima
Hey guys, Well today is Valentine's Day, A day for Love & Happiness indeed. Well for me this is quite the ominous anniversary, one year ago I had my stroke which changed my life forever. A year ago my family and friends did not know if I was going to survive through the night.
The days leading up to my stroke I had been experiencing severe headaches, not out the ordinary because I always had headaches from time to time, however these headaches were causing me to vomit. I could keep any food down. Then on Valentine's morning a year ago today, I woke up in the morning, went to the bathroom to get ready for work and I passed out. By the time my Fiance' found me I was dead, I had no pulse and I was not breathing. So I am very fortunate that I am still here. I was told that I had three brain surgeries and I was in a coma for months.
I am a 32 year old African American Professional Woman, I didn't do drugs, I don't smoke and I don't drink. I am a God fearing Christian Woman, I tried to do everything right, I worked hard and I'll admit I'm not perfect. Yet and I still suffered a severe stroke that took almost everything away from me, I cannot understand why this happened to me, but it did. Let this be a cautionary tale for anyone reading my words, enjoy every moment of your life, I've learned life is extremely fragile and precious. On this Valentines Day just be happy, If your lover doesn't meet your gift expectations don't let it get you down, just be happy you have one, you know ;-)
This is your gurl Kay Kay yall saying Happy Valentines Day, Don't be scared to give me a shout out!
