To quote Walter Brennan as Will Sonnet in the Guns of Will Sonnet "No Bragg, Just Fact". The Fellowship Of Alcoholics Anonymous has a lot to do with it to.
I am going to talk about my health and medical conditions. This is to let others know what I survived, and that then can too! I am 6'0" at one time I weighed 350+lbs, recently I was 240lbs, today I am 270lbs. The doctors say about 25lbs of that is water in my legs (which is why they are swollen).
I have had two heart attacks (in 1990 a Myocardial Infraction, 2019 Congestive Heart Failure). 1992 Thyroid Cancer (my Thyroids were removed and I was given Radioactive Iodine). In 2000 I had a Quadruple By-Pass.
In 2017 I got new shoes developed a blister, did not get it taken care of. Low and behold it turned Gangrene. The toes on my right foot had to be amputated. The amputation went well and has healed, the issue is a reoccurring infection.
Yes I have asthma, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, get winded easily, lost my strength (both arms and legs) if I fall I can not pick myself up.
What I can tell you is that I HAVE BEEN SOBER THROUGH IT ALL.
