Once upon a time there was this young girl with big dreams, one of them was modeling. Then, the girl experienced some drastic changes. But while that dream lasted she was tremendously happy. In fact, those years were some of the highlights of her life. Her friend and professional photographer Rudy did an awesome job. The makeup artist and friend, Esmeralda made her look beautiful! Yeah, that’s right. She is me! 🙂
A fun anecdote, in some of those photos I was already pregnant with my “Kissypher.” You ladies know how it is, so while the makeup artist was doing her magic I fell asleep. I woke up 2 hours later all dolled up! Hair, makeup, and nails done. I had my boy and was as skinny as before getting pregnant in a month. But! But! There seems to always be a “but,” right? Over the course of a month, my life changed drastically. I got sick with a strange disease. Got around 40 pounds heavier, and got an unbearable stomach ache that lasted around 6 months straight. Non-stop! Day and night. I thought I was going to die, really. 4 doctors later, countless of tests, a colonoscopy, an endoscopy, a biopsy, x-rays, ultrasounds and much more, they can’t find the cause. The pain now comes and goes. I get panicked when I feel a symptom similar to that pain.
Then, a mental illness, which I have been suffering since my early teens, worsen during the second half of my pregnancy. Depression clouded my heart, my mind, and my soul. It got even worse during that month of chronic pain and drastic changes and haven’t gotten away. But, (A positive but!) As the architect of my destiny that I am, I choose to fight back, to stand up over and over and over again. I might not model never again, but I can be a fashion blogger, which is exciting and fun! So depression, mysterious illness, excessive pounds you can go directly to where the fire will burn you. I’m shedding those pounds already!
Here to a life full of adventures and happiness.
