I cried because I was scared and in shock. I showed my mom and I called my boyfriend Damonte to tell him the news. He was in shock and scared of how his mom was going to react. My mom already agreed to tell his mom. The next day I went to the doctor and she confirmed the test was right.
I was nervous and a little scared because I was worried about the baby because well this a new thing for me and I wanted everything to go okay for the baby and my mom. That summer was hard though because my having her mood swings and I understand those are natural during pregnancy, but like I said I was only eight and did not understand much. I had to take care of my mom during the days because dad had to work; I enjoyed it; however, when dad got home, I was
The doctors were especially optimistic and believed that we caught the cancer early enough to receive ensuring results. However, it took a while for these results to become apparent. It was so painful to watch my father suffer through the treatments due to the fact that they drained him of everything. He was like a different person after these treatments, but there was nothing else that we could do. Finally, a few months into treatment, we acquired the word that my old man was officially in remission.
I think of fortitude as the strength in our mind that lets us push through that adversity in life and remain strong. Not only does fortitude represent pushing through the adversity, but it represents pushing through the adversity with courage. I have seen so many moments in my life where fortitude has been on great display. One example of fortitude that hit home the most is when my sister was pregnant with her first child. Everyone was so excited, but there were complications with the pregnancy around four months and she lost the baby.
The surgery went fine but, the healing process the absolute worst. The nurses kept telling me that the more I tried to get through it the faster I would heal. I did whatever they told me and ended up out of the hospital in less that five days. I was back to normal in less than two weeks, although my mom was not convinced and I was not allowed to do basically anything. Courage is shown in the simplest things; I would not have been able to get through this without courage and hope.
When he passed away I fell into a depression that lasted for months and months before I fully realized what was going on and had to seek help. It was hard for me to believe that he was gone from this world and I would never get to hear his laugh ever again. I went to therapy and was put on medication because his death was something that I couldn’t handle on my own. It took a while, but I came to a point where I didn’t have to be sad about it anymore because he was finally healed, and I now have the best guardian angel I could ever ask for. I feel him with me constantly and I know that he’d be proud of the person and I am, and he drives me to want to be the best version of
I grew up in a big, caring and optimistic family. Even though every day was a struggle for my parents and my siblings, I never usually faced a tough situation without them until the day I saw how deprived my parents have become from having so much stress about the money we did not have. Ever since that day I began to lack self-confidence and I actually thought of myself unworthy of doing anything and never thought of myself of anything higher than being ugly to the world. It was this lack of confidence that led to my growth into an empowering individual with big goals and a high growth mindset. My family and I went through a lot of horrid situations and still manage to smile and have our moments and beat our economic stress with the love we have as a family.
I even went for a few sessions after I gave birth to my son because I felt overwhelmed and similar symptoms to those of which I experienced when I was first diagnosed. Turns out I had postpartum depression instead. But what that showed me was the similarities between disorders and mental ailments. Through support, a change of diet, exercise, meditation and I’m proud to say no medication, I worked through my issues. Some people do benefit from using medication associated with the disorder, but I chose a holistic approach.
She was busy in her career and got married to Shirish Kunder but was unable to conceive naturally. Finally, the couple opted for IVF and they had triplets after 4 years. Although IVF is not always successful, Farah Khan was very lucky to be able to get pregnant with triplets. She was blessed with two girls and a boy in February 2008. Farah Khan is so happy that now she urges other couples to try IVF if they can’t conceive naturally.
I lost my first child when she was four-years-old. It was a very dark time and I didn’t know if I would get to experience motherhood again. Two years after I met the man who would become my husband, I found out I was pregnant with Luke and I was elated. The pregnancy was going well until I hit week 20. That is when it started to get scary.
