Ah I remembered to put write 201it3.
On the 3rd of Oct. 2012 I had a stroke. w as taken to a hospital and air lifted to a hospital near Dallas TX. Just because you are in a big city hospital does not mean that you are in good hands. After an MRI I was told that I had many leasions in my brain and that if there are that many that I have cancer somewhere else. They found more leasions on one of my kidneys. I ended up having brain surgery by one of their best. HA! If he is the best we are all in trouble. While in recovery that jackass came in grabbed the bandage on my head and jerked it off along with a handful of hair and I felt everyone of them being ripped from my head along with some stapes, I would like to meet the Jackass that decided stapes were better than stitches so that I could staple his balls to his leg and then let me rip them out three weeks later, which is what they did with the staples in my head. It hurt like hell and they ripped some skin with it and started it bleeding again. They told me that I had cancer, then said that I didn't have cancer, then said that I didn't, they wanted me to take treatment then said that I didn't need it, then asked me what hospist that I wanted to use. Like I said before just because you are in a big city hospital does not mean you are getting the best treatment. I had a friend that went to local doctor and was told she had cancer he sent to the city, they told her that she did not have cancer. Less than a year later she died of cancer. So who can you trust? I still suffer from headacks and back pain. The medications that I got from the local hospital took care of the blood clog that caused the stroke and reversed the effect of the stroke. I had long hair now it is about 1 inch. I hope that no one ever has to have that bastard Dr. Brent Morgan work on them.

    I'm still learning how to work my page and adding comments. I've had a good day today. I started off on a bad habit this morning, not knowing when to stop eating, but I worked it out thru the day. I walked this morning and this evening and drink ice water all day. I live across the street from a convenient store and they have a lot of fast foods over there so it is very tempting to go over and buy breakfast and lunch. By dinner time the food has set too long so it's not too tempting. I must say that I'm doing really well at not falling into the trap. I haven't talked to my family about my diet because if I fail I would feel like I disappointed everyone. My aunt is the only one that has noticed that I have lost weight. I have a really large stomach, I look like I'm 9 months pregnant.

    Since June 1, 2008, I have lost 35 lbs. I never thought I could do it. I have been reading about many of the Spark people and I have found encouragement and strength. I still have many more pounds to lose, but so far I've had a good start. When I found, I was browsing the internet looking for a calorie chart to help me with my diet and found much more.
