Thankful Thursday - Health

Hello Lovelies!

I'm going to start by being honest with you, I'm starting to struggle for things to write about without them becoming a bit - thin. I'm not giving up yet but I have done this feature for 8 weeks now so I'm still pretty proud of myself!

So today what I am thankful for is my health. I've got no particular reason to be extra grateful today of all days, but over the weekend I was talking to Lee about the fact that I haven't been ill in a while.

I know that sounds odd - most people do go quite a while without being ill and never applaud themselves, but I went through a stage of being rather ill rather often and it was not fun.

I've never been majorly ill but in January 2011 I went for a regular ECG to monitor my heart when they discovered that there was a problem in the way that it regulated itself, it's all a bit too technical for me to even understand yet alone explain but it was scary! 

I left school in the March of that year as I was due to have an operation to try and fix it smack bang in the middle of my exams and subsequently got rubbish A Levels (annoying). As it turned out my operation wasn't until further into the summer but a small part of me genuinely believed I might die and it pretty much ruined those couple of months in my life.

Now, over 2 years on, I haven't had any problems with my heart for a good few months and it's normally my own fault on the rare occassion that I do and I am so grateful for that.

There was a time when I thought I would be restricted in a lot of ways because of my heart, I had to wear monitors and travel 2 hours to Leicester every month, but it doesn't affect my job, it doesn't affect my riding and most importantly it doesn't affect my life!

I feel very lucky that my heart problem has been the only major issue that I've had thus far and I always make sure that I remind myself of that once I've done something that, at one point, I never thought I'd be able to do.

I hope that you are all happy and healthy this week!

love and kisses
