I feel incredible! It was around a year ago that I realized I was doing better rather than trying to figure out if I was having prednisone or ibuprofen withdrawals. I improved daily after that. Sure, I had a couple games of “What does that pain really mean!” but with the help of yoga and a good chiropractor I was able to find some peace with the discomforts that come and go.
I will always be an open-heart surgery patient. I will always have had a congenital defect. I will always have had a stroke. I will always be recovering and trying to find peace from those past medical events that still haunt me today and in days to come. But it’s true that time heals all wounds. I am no longer living a nightmare. I am now living.
