A Little History

 

A Little History

 

 

Where did I grow up

Growing  up in the Suburbs of Chicago, I couldn’t of asked for a better childhood. At 19 years old, I made my first “out of State” move (The first of so many). First I  lived in Arizona then, Colorado, Southern Illinois(yes, its like a different state), California, Massachusetts, Texas and even South Carolina. No, I wasn’t in the military, just someone looking to experience everything I could. After being diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy and Congestive Heart Failure. I knew there was so much to learn and do.

 

Miscellaneous Stuff

The greatest outcome of my illness was a deep passion to live life, there is a huge difference between living life and just existing. I’ve worked in so many fields it not even funny. Sales, Concrete Repair, Computers, and even a Correctional Officer. I would never have the time or will to list them all. I have always had an urge to see and try new things. Anyone who knows me, will say I am a blunt person, there is a fine line between being blunt and being rude. I’ll be the first to admit, I sometimes blur that line.

 

Congestive Heart Failure

In 2007 I was diagnosed with Congestive Heart Failure. I had an EF of less than 10% and was repeatedly told I would soon Die. I spent over a year on the Heart Transplant List and had given up all hope. I finally had a “Breakdown” and somehow realized I needed to be Positive and with a little work I was taken off the Transplant list and now I feel great and actively Powerlift. Something I was told I would never do again.

Love Life

A couple of years ago I was reunited with an old classmate of mine (Thank you, Facebook). I hadn’t seen her in years. We decided to have a drink and talk about old times, We haven’t been apart since that day. She has joined me on my adventures and We plan on having many more. The future is bright and when it gets dark, light that bitch up. Thank you joining us on our  Journey through life!
