What was your motivation? What inspired you to keep going, even when you wanted to give up?
Honestly, I wanted to have a future and live and be around my family. My mom, family, and friends are what inspired me. I guess you can also say I inspired myself, as weird as it may sound, because I usually never give myself enough credit for anything that I do. So now I’m giving myself credit and loving myself more.

How did you change your eating habits?
To be honest, when I tried to work out and lose weight, I could never really lose it. Then, on March 31, 2023, I was in my bathroom, and suddenly, I had this rush feeling, and my heart started beating so fast (like I was scared about something, but I wasn’t scared of anything at the time). 

So I called 911 and took a Bayer aspirin. They came and said my heart was good, but my blood pressure was 225/118. I asked them to take me to the hospital. They checked me out and sent me home. A week later, it happened again in the middle of the mall. I returned to the hospital, and they said my heart was good and my blood was high again. They sent me home, and stayed with my mother for almost a month.

I stopped eating because I was scared to eat. I was going through a lot. I had cut out all junk food, restaurant food, sodas…I cut out all of it at once. I think that was dangerous, but I was scared. Eventually, I started eating again and realized I lost 20 pounds.

One day I was visiting, and I had to have my brother stay with me to help. I went to the hospital again for the same symptoms, and everything was fine. However, my primary doctor gave me high blood pressure meds. She said she thinks all this results from anxiety, panic attacks, PTSD, and agoraphobia. Also, I had a really bad case of vertigo.

So I started praying more and attending my church services on Sunday online. Eventually, I started researching what I can eat and what to avoid. That has helped.

I lost a little of my balance, but I got it back. Now I’m talking to a therapist to help me learn more about mental illness and what to do to help with it. The reason I have those illnesses is that in 2019, I was shot by my ex-boyfriend in my left leg. I was with him for six years, and there was a lot of mental and verbal abuse. In the end, it got physical. He was playing with a gun, it went off, and I got shot.

Currently, I eat a lot of fresh fruit and veggies. I cook my own food using avocado oil, and bake or air fry my food as well.
