Hello all, and welcome to my journey. My name is Janice (pronounced Janiece), I’m married, I have three children . I am a JW who loves all of Gods creations. I have several health issues that I have to deal with constantly but I don’t allow them to get to me…. this blog is my journey of living with these illnesses and yet still maintaining happiness and hope. I love all things pink and girly…. my favorite medicine is Makeup lol…. So just to give you a quick breakdown on what I’m dealing with I’ve broken them down for ya……
I have Congestive Heart Failure (CHF) which is when the heart doesn’t pump as much blood as it should…. this means that other organs don’t get enough oxygen or blood which can cause fluid in the liver, lungs, abdomen, arms and legs. People with CHF can have shortness of breath, fatigue, irregular heartbeat, swelling in the ankles and feet, a cough, difficulty sleeping, weight gain (of course) and a lack of appetite.
Also, Cardiomyopathy: which is when the hearts ability to pump blood is lessened because its main pumping chamber, the left ventricle, is enlarged and weakened. Symptoms are like CHF; shortness of breath, swelling of your legs, fatigue, weight gain,(again with the weight…ugh) fainting, palpitations, dizziness or lightheadedness, blood clots, chest pain.
Diabetes Type 2
which we all know is a devil disease. Type 2 is when the body doesn’t make enough insulin or doesn’t use it as it should…symptoms can range from frequent urination to amputation.
Fibromyalgia which is a condition that causes pain all over the body…..it can also cause fatigue, anxiety, sleep problems, depression and headaches.
These are the most serious ones I have….trust me I have others (smh) but I don’t let them run me….I love to put on makeup, get dressed up
knowing good and well i’m not going anywhere, let my hair wig down and tell Satan….not today! I’ve learned if you look good on the outside, no one can tell the craziness going on in the inside…..
Won’t you come on this journey with me?
