I was hospitalised for a month and was at a very low point during this time. It was the most difficult period in my life, however through the love, kindness and support from my friends and close family I recovered and am getting stronger every day. I am deeply grateful for my perfect health and my wonderful family. The ordeal made me realise who and what is important in my life. I have aways been a grateful person, but not as much as I am now. I appreciate being alive and healthy and I am even more grateful for all my blessings. I want to give others my enthusiasm for living a life of happiness and fulfillment.
What I'd most like to receive:
I would like to receive guidance to create balance, inner peace in my life which I believe will create a harmony and greater happiness for me.

I am 39, I have a 13 year old boy, Alessandro and 9 year old twins, Marisa + Mikele + have been married to my husband, William for 15 years. I am the managing partner of a nursery school and work a very long day which involves a lot of stress. for two years, my stress caused me to bleed profusely during my cycle to the point of haemoraging and fainting. My iron level became extremely low and eventually after many alternatives over 2 years the final decision was to have a hysterectomy. I am highly sensitive and allergic to medicines and had extreme reactions to the morphine and then pethidine in the theatre and was in agony. By the time, I stabilised, a few days later, nausea and dizziness set in, however by the 6th day in hospital, I believed I was stronger and just wanted to get home to my family. However I was home for a few hrs and the next morning was re-admitted as I couldn't stop vomiting. A specialist was brought in and he said I had a blocked bowel. I couldn't eat any food and was on a drip for days on end. I longed for some food. I seemed to stablise, so went home to my family but this time I started vomiting gall and by this time, I couldn't even walk I was so weak. I was re-admitted and eventually the Doctors did a CAT SCAN and discovered an abcess had formed in the area of surgery and was poisoning my body. I was relieved that they now knew what my body was fighting but was very stressed to undergo more surgery. After dozens of antibiotics, drips and needles going into my body, I started healing and was discharged 26 days later since first being admitted. I am feeling great and getting my strength back each day. I appreciate life and all those who are in my life!
