I'm back

Recommended Posts

I had some serious health issues that caused me to go to hospital for a while and its taken all this time to get approval to start back training.

So here I am, not sure if anyone will remember me.. but its good to be back.

a serious comeback - i ganed a lot of weight 6 months off at the gym but im planning to drop 7.5kg with lots of cardio the first month and then i can get lifting again - ultimate goal to compete in powerlifting :)

and in the coma I had a repetative dream of a lab growing human heads out of grass....

no white lights...

but i lived with less than a one in a million chances and im coming back from having to relearn to walk and talk...

I hope been back here and back at the gym today some familiar faces that ill get the bravery to post some pix xoxo

Breathing tube ... coma ... relearning walking and talking ... Jeez Queen, you weren't kidding! :shock:

Good to hear you're on the mend though. Remember to take it easy.

thank you for all the rewelcomes.

Flatout I just died and it was about 5 weeks before they decided to take me off incubation / breathing tube and they didnt know if i would be dead or braindead.. i escaped with some memory loss and short term memory loss other than that my brain seems to be in perfect working order and now my bloods all show normal organ function im excited to be back here!

teamfatboy i actually think it was the training that gave my body the strength to stay alive through it all.. it certainly gave me the drive to walk further everyday on the old people walker and get an early release even though on the second day home i got stuck on the floor for hours till someone came home because i was so weak i could not push myself up from a sitting position -- id been trying to hang clothes up -- my parents had packed up all my stuff to take home after the funeral.. its really good to see you still here ill have to catch up on your journal!

i was hospitalized at the end of august cant remember the exact date, out of hospital by october - continuining issues with fevers, bloods, and so weak sitting up or walking to the bathroom would wipe me out fr the rest of the day wanted to start back in january but still had rashes and weird blod things showing up so i couldnt go back - so just this week is my first time back but i finally have no more fatigue the last stopping place was losing most of my hair. It all fell out 3 months after getting out. They said it was the stages of hair growth and I lost all the hair that was growing when I died.

EMC - thank you very much

drizzt - thanks and i hope to use this site to keep me motivated :) and got my friends in the US who got me into lifting to support me too..

just a short work out yesterday but my ass is sore :) so im off in a few for round 2!
