I have been working on this blog for a while. I only made it public a couple of days ago. That meant I sent out the link to all my family, friends and connections that I thought could help me spread the word about this blog. I cannot believe the response I have gotten. I have heard from people all over. People I know, some I don’t, it just makes me feel really good that people take the time to help themselves.
A lot of people have e-mailed me personally thanking me for being brave or that they cannot believe how I did this on my own. I need to let everyone know that I appreciate the support, care and kind words, but I’m not trying to be brave. Brave to me is someone who takes on something scary. For instance, a firefighter going in to a burning house to help someone, troops fighting our wars, etc. I didn’t know this was going to happen, but since it did, I have to move forward. The only thing for me is I have the courage to take on life, use my voice to help others and to change my life for the better. I took all the negative things in my life and took a real long look in the mirror. I chose to change my life for the better, help myself first, help others and do things for others. Truly, by making others feel better, like holding the door, giving a compliment or just being there to listen, made me feel good and in turn I didn’t think about the bad stuff in my life. Plus, I made others feel good. It doesn’t take much to turn someone else’s day around. Make the decision to make others happy! I really want to help people, I am trying to accomplish 3 things:
- I want to bring awareness regarding Molar Pregnancy. I felt very alone when I was told that I had a Molar Pregnancy. My family Dr, Specialist & Oncologist all said different things, only had one way of solving things and I just didn’t feel like anyone really knew much about it. My mother nor MG’s mother had EVER heard of this. As I researched, I kept coming up w/ outdated info. Also, most of the forums I visited were all very sad. Yes, this is a sad time, but you have to pick yourself up and move on, you can’t change what has occurred. Also, I would have loved to have someone to contact that could help me w/ what comes next, what to expect or just to contact w/ concerns or questions. We all know how difficult it can be to get in touch w/ a Dr. Therefore, I wanted to create a place where someone can read, ask for help or questions and that is as upbeat and positive as possible during this tragic time.
- I want this blog to be a positive, inspiring place for anyone. All of us have gone through rough times, whether it is health, job loss, moving to a new area (I’ve moved to a new country), etc. This is a blog where I want to have advice to help everyone be a better person from the inside (being positive, helping & encouraging others, eating well), as well as, the outside (exercise). I want this to be a place of positivity! You can laugh, read, learn!
- Inspire! As I have stated. You can accept what you have been given and do nothing, which believe it or not is the easiest thing to do or you can pick yourself up and change the course of your life. You have to think outside the box. I was told that there was no way to bring my HcG levels down w/o chemo. I researched and tried my own remedies and so far something I did worked. I did what 3 Dr’s told me I couldn’t do. I want to give you hope that there are other avenues to try. So, try things experiment and just get up and do something. That is much better than doing nothing!
So, again thank you all for reading and saying kind things. In the end, I just want to have a place that picks you up from the rough times, rather than keeps you feeling sad. Thanks for listening and please keep following!
