And so the story goes..

Lots of thoughts cluttering my mind today and need to get it out.

One thing I neglected to mention in previous entries is that I had life changing surgery in June '12. I had gastric bypass surgery. My weight had gotten out of control and I needed to make a change.. not only for myself, but for my family as well. I watched what obesity did to my mother and grandmother and was ready to stop the cycle. Surgery was successful, but 2 weeks later, things took a turn for the worse. That's when I learned of my ex-husbands affair. It's been a while, and revisiting these memories are painful. I just want to get it all out as I work on moving forward.

We separated, and I moved out along with Jaxson. Post surgery, I was to be taking very good care of my nutrition and supplementation. Needless to say, it was impossible to do with the emotional state I was in.  I ended up dehydrated and deficient on important vitamins and nutrients. By the time September rolled around, I landed in the hospital for about a month. Then transferred to a nursing facility for a few weeks to learn to walk independently again. I had lost a significant amount of weight and muscle during my hospital stay. Also, Jaxson ended up in DKA and hospitalized while he was with his dad. The pump was malfunctioning. Now he is on injections again.. and missing his pump.

I filed for divorce in October, upon leaving the nursing facility...

Okay.. I have to stop for now, but will continue with this later. *sigh*

  1. Months had passed already, but I can still feel the pain as I read your story. I do hope things are already settled these days. It's not easy to move on after the divorce – with the surgery, your child, and the depression. Anyway, how are you now? Hope you'll update your posts. Thanks! :)
