There once was a Woman diagnosed with #OvarianCancer at the age of 22. She had 3 surgeries on her stomach & went bald from #Chemotherapy ☠️ A few years later she was pregnant. It was a miracle because Doctors told her she might not be able to have kids. Another year later she was pregnant again. She decided to leave her hometown in Manhattan. 5 months pregnant she moved to Cali with her kids father and 1 year old daughter. While she was in California she decided to attend #PinnacleCollege. A month into college, her child’s father left her & moved back to NY.
She was left in Cali with her 1 and 3 year old daughters “To figure it out”. She knew nobody on the west coast. A few months later she moved into her long lost Aunt Lapia’s home in #SanBernadino. She drove an hour and a half to college in Alhambra 4 days a week, then 45mins to #Hollywood where she bartended at #SaddleRanch then back to #SanBernadino an hour and a half away.
I did this for almost a year but had to stop because I kept falling asleep on the road. After the 4th car crash, I started sleeping in my car instead of driving home every night. I started taking showers at a gym then went to class. I spent a lot of time away from my kids and it was very hard on them. I was high and drunk everyday because it was too hard to deal with my reality.
Fast forward a few years later, life is so much better. No more depression or hating my life because of my situation. I’m drug free and I’m no longer an alcoholic. No more crying everyday trying to figure out how I was going to take care of my kids without him. Currently im a full time #HomeschoolMom and #Musician living in a spacious 3 bedroom apartment with amazing friends in #NewYork #California #LasVegas and #Atlanta who only want the best for me and my kids. Love you guys and thank you to the people who helped me not kill myself through all of that. Literally. I’m sharing this because you never know what a person is going through. “As you go through your day, remember: be kind to people. Everyone you meet is going through a battle you know nothing about”
