I am nothing special. I’m just a regular person sharing my story. I’m not trying to become some kind of internet sensation, I’m just trying to be a good mom and wife. Because I wasn’t one for a long time. I’m just trying to show people that life can be amazing. Because mine wasn’t for a long time. And I’m trying to be there for others who struggle, like I did, for a longtime. If you want to read my posts that’s great! If not, that’s ok too. You do you, because I’m over here doing me. For this little guy and his Daddy, sisters and brother. #myjourneysmyown
TMI POST: Three days before my two year surgiversary I had my first CT scan. Why? Because suddenly I had some terrible stomach pain. Didn’t matter what I ate or drank I HURT. PCP told me to try Pepcid but that did nothing so I contacted my surgeon. He was concerned I may have an internal hernia. So off to CT I went. A few hours later I got the news that there was no hernia just an “impressive amount of 💩💩💩” 😂😂 so Miralax and laxatives to the rescue! Needless to say I’ve not been able to enjoy the snow fall today as I’ve been in the bathroom a lot! Be kind to your bowels, they can be shits! #myjourneysmyown#rnycommunity#rnygastricbypasssurgery#constipation#itsnojoke#pain#poop

Purge items not used. Donate them. Go through one space per weekend until done. Unsubscribe from junk mail. Eliminate toxic people. Say no to invitations you don’t want to attend with no guilt.
