“I don’t want anyone to feel as lost and lonely because of their health as I did. So that those who really need to find a like-minded person would know that there is someone who will understand what they are experiencing and feeling. That they know that even if it is very difficult, all difficulties can be overcome.”
All my life I’ve been told that I must be very friendly and positive because I was born on Valentine’s Day. I don’t know if that’s why I’m like that, but to some extent definitely. I am very cheerful; I get along well with everyone and enjoy life to the fullest. Plus, I’m pretty active.
Since childhood, I have been interested in various sports. In my youth, I studied different dance styles and trained in swimming, although I didn’t think I was very good at it. I consider training in the gym my favorite sport, which I have been doing with varying success for about 8 years. At this stage in my life, I take these workouts more seriously because they affect my physical and mental health in many ways.
Despite the fact that I am very active and involved in various sports, I have had many different health problems from an early age. This is probably why sports and active regular movement are especially important for me.
A little over four years ago, I had a full hip replacement. At first it was very difficult, but today I made my peace with it and try to think about positive things. Instead of crying about everything that I cannot do because of my condition, I think how much I can do very successfully. For example, all my life I dreamed of running a marathon, or rather, running at all. I was once told that I would never be able to run, but about a year ago I found a physiotherapist who was very interested in me as a patient. Thanks to him, I am slowly running and I believe that one day I will run a marathon! Besides, I had a big dream about boxing – and I have been doing it for a year now! I try to train five times per week – three gym workouts and two boxing sessions. I believe that these are the sports that suit me best.
Of course, I also have bad days when training is the last thing I want to do. Rather, you need to let go of all the problems and just talk. Today I have very good friends, a life partner and a mother that I can rely on and complain about – I am very grateful to them for that!
When I was younger, I did not know how to ask for help, because it seemed to me that no one would understand me, because others do not know how I feel. I felt alone with my health problems. Today I am more than sure that I am not alone. I don’t want anyone to feel as lost and lonely because of poor health as I did. Therefore, today I am sharing my story. So that those who really need to find a like-minded person would know that there is someone who will understand what they are experiencing and feeling. That they know that even if it is very difficult, all difficulties can be overcome.
