There are not enough words I can say to describe just how important my Dad is to me. You are the strongest guy I have ever met in my life. Love ya Pa. #bloodclotsurvivor

A year ago today, my life was completely changed. This fun loving, positive, high-energy girl had absolutely no idea that a simple broken leg could cause so many problems, but would later learn that it was a blessing in disguise for her future. Discovering I carry the rare and deadly blood disorder that only 2% of the population has, better known as factor 2, would determine how I live the rest of my life. But going through the experiences I have endured has allowed me to become more aware of my risks, become more healthy overall and made me a stronger person. This entire year leading up to this moment has had it's ups and had it's downs, but I have never taken a single moment for granted since July 5th, 2016. Thank you to everyone who has been here, to support me and comfort me through the highest highs and the lowest lows. Here's to many more years to come, clot free!! ❤️✨

A few #transformationtuesday fun facts about me:

1. I wasn't happy with my body waaaay before having my daughter. The left photo is from 2011, about a year after graduating high school.

2. I always considered myself athletic BUT NOW that I know what being a real athlete means—I consider my old self a completely mediocre high school athlete wannabe...That makes me giggle. I am 24 years old, a mother, and at the most confident stage of my life so far. Confident in my body, in my ability, and in the positivity life has to offer. Three things that are new to me now. Three things I plan to grow old with.

3. Size/weight/build mean nothing. If you are happy with you, then you're doing life exactly right. I wasn't. It had a lot to do with physical appearance but it had a lot more to do with mental perspective. Finding fitness helped me find myself. On the left, I am a size 13. I still have those shorts, as a matter of fact (Just got them out to check the size). I'm now a size 2. S/O to all the people who say, "you didn't neeeed to lose weight." You're right. I didn't need to do anything that didn't make me happy. You're right. I didn't need to lose weight. That saying just contributes to health misconceptions. I needed to build some muscle and lift some real weights. I needed to get a handle on my ONE LIFE.
4. If I would have realized how out of hand I was letting my health get in the photo on the left, I probably wouldn't be labeled a #bloodclotsurvivor .. Being fit isn't only a hobby for me, it is a solution to two blood disorders. I am not cured but I believe (key word: I, me, Alisa) that I can prevent further blood clots by continuing a healthy lifestyle to the best of my ability. I refuse to take POSION everyday to thin my blood. (That's me. I trust my gym ability more than some lab that doesn't give one crap about the long term effects of a drug). Life is too damn short to be anything but the best version of yourself you can be. Happy Tuesday! 😊

When I think back to the pain, the struggle, the depression and anxiety of my 2 blood clots after pregnancy AND postpartum depression after my 2nd baby... I look at my family & think of this statistic all the time. I'm too blessed.

I not only thank God for surviving large DVTs TWICE. I also thank Him for the strength He gave my husband & I. DVTs may have destroyed me mentally for a couple years but it only strengthened our love. The only best friend i need. Newlyweds June 22 2013 & 1st DVT emergency Dec 16. Same year. 2nd DVT emergency Sept 28 2015.

You damn skippy our Anniversary is the WHOLE SUMMER lolololol

This has been a humbling week. I am reminded of how important it is to live fully and happily since many don't get that chance. I only have 8 lives left after all. #bloodclotsurvivor

One Year From Today I Almost Died from Blood Clots. Both Lungs Clogged and My Leg Clogged behind My Knee. After Being Rushed to the Hospital in Miami and Going Through the Process, I Don't Want to Go Through It Again. Since I Had it I Can Easily Get Them Again but As Much As I Exercise I Try to Keep Them Away. The Lord was With Me and I Owe Him for That. I Can't Fail on Him because He Didn't Fail on Me. I Showed Him I can Help Him To Help Me Beat My Sickness. I Listened to My Nutritionist, I Did Exactly What My Doctors Told Me to Do, I Took My Life More Serious. I Took the Pain and Fought It. It Wasn't An Easy Ride but Thank God I'm Alive. Hearing that You Could Die is Something You Don't Think About, or Think Would Come so Soon. I'm A Young Man and I Can Say that Age ain't Nothing but a Number, Your Health can Fail on You Any Day. I Workout Everyday, I Pay Attention to My Health, and I Won't Stop Paying Attention to My Health till the Day the Lord Take Me. #BloodClotSurvivor

I'm thankful for my health insurance. I'm not even mad about that deduction from my pay check today... I couldn't even imagine not being able to afford my medication. I gladly paid my $56 copay... #xarelto #bloodthinners #bloodclotsurvivor #dvt #bilateralpulmonaryembolism #thankfultobealive #healthinsurance

On June 14th I was admitted to the St. Cloud Hospital because I had two massive blood clots in my lungs, along with a bunch of small ones. Before I was admitted I couldn't sit up, stand up, basically do anything but lay down without getting light-headed and almost passing out. I would have issues breathing and could not catch my breath when I had to get up, mostly to use the restroom. I was very lucky to have it caught in time and had a procedure done to help break up the two massive blood clots. The procedure consisted of tubes and wires going up through my groins up to my lungs. I wasn't allowed to move my legs for over 12 hours. It was the second worst thing ever, the first being the stuff occurring before being admitted. I woke up every 3-4 hours that night in so much pain. My sides hurt, my legs, my chest, almost my entire body. But I managed to pull through. I was sent home June 17th on oxygen and was told I am lucky to be alive. I am now off of oxygen and on blood-thinners for the next 4-5 months. Due to all of this, I was out of work for I want to say 3-4 weeks. So I lost 3-4 weeks worth of pay. When I was able to go back to work, I was only able to go back for a limited amount of time. First it was two 4-hour shifts every week, and now it's two 6-hour shifts. Before I was working three or four shifts a week that varied from 7-10 hours. Now I really need your help! Please click on the link in my bio and help me by either sharing or donating! Anything would be appreciated. #bloodclotsurvivor #helpme #please

We started as a team, we finished as a team in 3:02. Strong. We climbed the mountain and these guys along with so many more helped to raise over $3,000 for the National Bloodclot Alliance! Mission accomplished. #climbthemountainstopaclot
