For the last 3 years I've have been battling neck and back problems. They have altered my life in ways that I could have never imagined. Through all the changes and pain, my life has become something I never knew I would have to live through.

There have been so many days where I have given every ounce of energy I had just to do the most simple tasks. Some days the only things I could accomplish were taking a shower & cooking myself some food, and I had to be ok with that. ...I tried to keep the details of what I have been going through mostly to myself, but as time went on, it became unavoidable to tell others what was happening to me.

Some people have been supportive over the past few years. Some I would say that I owe everything to. I've had people listen to my fears, tell me everything was going to be ok while I was crying, & others have talked to me for hours to keep me calm. Through it all, I truly feel fortunate to have people in my corner. Even though there have been people very close to me who have turned their backs on me, whether they couldn't handle being there for me anymore or just didn't want to, I won't let that change how I feel about all the positive things.

The point of saying all of this is that, you never know what someone is going through in their lives. We all put on a brave face when we're out in the world, but a lot of people have real problems they face everyday. I have learned through these past 3 years, the true meaning of struggle. My sympathy could not be higher for everyone else out their who struggles with mental or physical issues.

If you know someone who is struggling, please be there for them. It may only require the occasional quick conversation or something like that. The people you know will appreciate more than you know. To those out there reading this, who know who I am and know what I'm going through, I want to say thank you. It means more than you'll ever know.

Today has been another hard day & once again I'm reminded of just how great the people are in my life who care about me. While I may be in pain and emotionally drained, I'm reminded how lucky I am to have people in my corner.

For those of you out there that may be struggling through something in your own life, I say this to you....Don't give up, don't ever give up. You can make it through this. It's ok to have bad days & it's ok to cry. Just remember what you're fighting for & all the people who want to see you succeed.

If any of you out there need someone to talk to, talk to me. Send me a message through the page. You're not alone, and you don't have to fight all by yourself

I would like to ask a question to those of my followers who resist ANY restrictions on gun laws.

I can understand that you believe you should be able to keep hunting rifles for recreation, I don't have a problem with that.


I can understand that you believe you should be able to keep hand-guns for self defense, I don't have a problem with that either.

However, I don't understand why so many gun's rights activists are so adamant on having assault rifle. I mean what purpose do they serve?

Please explain to me why "these particular guns" should not be restricted.

I want to hear what you have to say.
