Regret...

A health moment I regret...

Easy - when I didn't stand up and make my doctors take care of me when I was 16.  My hair fell out, I was winded brushing my hair and rather than force the issue I stopped taking my medication.  Cold turkey.

It was the start of 5 years of my life where I felt bad, not terrible, but bad every day of my life.  I caught every cold, flu, stomach bug and otherwise infection I could.  I gained weight no matter how little I ate. I worked out to no avail.

It SUCKED.

I stayed miserable until I got my first job.

And as much as I regret it, it helped me become who I am and allowed me to help others NOT make the same mistakes.

I regret it, but I'm not sad about it.
