Rock bottom at 26 years old.
About 4 months ago I injured my foot which ended up being a huge ordeal. I was basically on the couch and in a boot to walk in for 3 months😱. .
It not only effected me physically but more mentally. I got to a point of not caring anymore. My foot wouldn’t heal even after countless doctor visits and 8 different rounds of antibiotics which completely destroyed my gut flora. It was absolutely miserable. Not to mention the stress of planning our own wedding. .
Then to ad salt to the wound my truck was totaled in front of my house in the middle of the night by a drunk driver while I was sleeping(hit and run). The world was not on my side. I stopped caring about everything and started to live extremely negatively. I was drinking constantly and always angry. I would bitch and complain thinking everything and everyone was out to get me. I had had enough. .
After binge drinking everyday morning to night for 3 months straight literally killing myself. I couldn’t remember anything, my body was shutting down. It was not a life I wanted to live anymore. I was getting extremely depressed and basically hit my rock bottom. I made a decision the next day to clean up and put my health first! I needed to stop pretending I was fine and take action. .
The first few weeks were not pretty and I struggled tremendously. But by the end of the first month my foot started to heal so I could start working out again channeling all my built up aggression toward something positive. I started to feel human again for the first time in a long time and my mental state started to become less and less negative as I started focusing on the positive. .
Reality is I’m actually grateful that I hit my rock bottom because it taught me how to heal, that it wasn’t the end of the road for me just an obstacle to overcome. I now feel better mentally and physically than I have since I was a kid! Health is so important in many aspects of life don’t take it for granted. I know that feeling of helplessness and wouldn’t wish that on anybody. Don’t let bad situations dictate the rest of your life. Eating right and and working out changed my life let me help change yours! - 10 minutes ago
