So my journey to reclaim my life should have started 6 years ago today. For many weeks prior to today back in 2012 I thought I had pulled a muscle in my back again. I started having on and off pain, and then weird fevers. Turns out I had a peri-anal abscess that had begun to poison me. Oh goody. Who knew! Well it turns out that my unhealthy life style really could have killed me.
You know that appearance of beer belly? Even if you do not drink? It was my poor body storing what is called visceral fat. It was strangling my insides. It did such a good job strangling my insides that i sprung a leak in my intestines and it formed a fistula which formed the abscess.
So after 3 very painful procedures over the next 6 months, I was cleared to do what ever. So what did I do? I went back to the same crappy diet that go me in trouble in the first place. So it ended up being two years before I wised up and took control of my life. I have not looked back since.
So what does this have to do with anything? Nothing! Like I said yesterday, I love history, even if it is mine and the dumb stuff I do.
Lesson to be learned, listen to you body. You do NOT get a fever from a pulled muscle. And a Seton String is a evil invention!
I can assure you of this much. I will not go back to the state I was in 6 years ago. Being this happy and healthy is a gift. I would prefer to never to through that pain again.
