Heart Disease

My mom was diagnosed with coronary heart disease yesterday. She's having a stint inserted tomorrow. I'm really angry that I predicted this. She eats terribly, refuses to exercise, and insists that she's as "healthy as a horse." Meanwhile, she has diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and oh yeah, she's recovering from CANCER. I've been saying all along that a heart attack was around the corner if she didn't get control. I hate that I was right.

I don't want to be that! What an incredible reminder of why I'm trying to get healthy. I want the best quality of life that I can achieve. I won't settle for anything less. I deserve the best.
