The truth is life is HARD. Sometimes harder for some than others, but we all have our own adversities we have to overcome. Unfortunately mine started before I turned 10, when I lost my dad in a tragic avalanche. That's where my PTSD started. When I was 20 I was sexually assaulted which is when my anxiety got worse. Then at age 25 I was divorced, broke, over weight, and very unhealthy - both physically and mentally. I didn't self medicate or use prescription drugs. I got counselling and started going to the gym. It saved my life. It wasn't just the physical transformation, but the emotional one that really changed my life. Always remember to take care of your health no matter what challenges life throws. We have such little time here and I would rather spend it happy and healthy!
