Forgot to put this one up!
Arriving at the admitting unit and getting all prepped for my Tummy Tuck yesterday💕 😷 Day two is pretty damn rough. In so much pain it's unreal,the slightest movement is agonizing and the swelling is insane. My blood pressure was really low so was being closely monitored,also had to have an urgent ultrasound as they thought I had a hematoma or fluid build up,all came back fine which is good although there is some pockets of fluid in my abdomen but not enough to have a drain ( Hopefully stays that way!) I ended up getting really nauseous and vomited which to say in the least was a f*cking horrific experience after having major abdominal surgery! 😭
I'm resting up and just sleeping on and off. I was originally only going to stay in hospital for 2 nights but looks like my stay will be longer until they can get my pain under control.
It's definitely emotionally draining but I keep telling myself "you are strong,you are brave and you've got this. Keep fighting 💕 - hopefully in the next couple of days when I'm more mobile I'll be able to get a decent look at my new tummy and snap a pic for you guys! From what I have seen my tummy looks incredible 😍
Sometimes you need to step back, in order to take care of yourself.
The honest truth you probably don’t know about • My name is Hiba. I live in a small town. I’m 29, I’m bicultural (I come from a religious family, yet I have chosen a different path). I had to take a break from my job as a teacher a few months back because I was severely depressed and I was struggling with bulimia. I’m single, I live with my mom and I’m fixing a lot of past poorly made decisions in terms of my finances. I go to therapy every other week and my social anxiety is sometimes so challenging that I have to hold back tears when I occasionally go out in public or take the bus, because yes, I don’t have a drivers license or a car. •
When I hit “rock bottom” last year, I felt like a complete f*** up. I look mad as hell when I accidentally meet people I used to talk to, because I can’t bare the question “how are you?” Or “what are you up to these days?”. I had to distance myself from almost all of my past friends because I became very paranoid in terms of who I could trust. But you know what? Every day, I wake up, I look out from my window, and I set an intention that today will be a good day. Truth? It’s an ongoing process, and some days I have to “uplift” myself before every single action because what I really want is to stay under the covers. I wanted to share this to let you know that behind this Instagram profile, and this huge smile, there’s a reality you might relate to, and it’s completely human. In any moment, you can choose to give in to your fears or you can take a conscious decision to celebrate the small wins. A small win can literally be ANYTHING. At one point, a small win for me was being able to take a shower. I know, disgusting right? Haha, well it’s the truth. Please take it moment by moment and choose to take care of yourself, you, yes YOU, are here for a reason and the odds of you being born is 1:400,000,000,000,000, according to scientist. Life can become beautiful again, I promise ❤️ And chances are, you will have something so valuable to give back to those you encounter once you work through your struggles 🙏🏼 #overcomedepression#liveagain#mentalhealthrecovery
In 1886, sales of Coca-Cola averaged 9 drinks per day. That first year, Pemberton sold only 25 gallons of syrup.(not bottles)
Coca-Cola made its world debut at the Jacobs' Pharmacy soda fountain in Atlanta, where it sold for 5 cents a glass in 1886. In the first year Coca-Cola creator John Pemberton sold an average of just nine glasses a day. The company now sells 1.4 billion beverage servings every day
I needed a practical example to motivate someone. You see, where you are today is not your final destination in life. Don't give up and quit feeling the world has ended because you didn't make sales yesterday or last week etc. Work hard, improve on your skills, advertise your business and push push push.
Be your biggest hype man, don't feel shy to post on your page. Stop thinking of "what will others say" when God blesses you with an insight, know it won't make sense to others, but work on it and bring that idea to life.
Today, stop wallowing in self pity, if you have to post 100times, do it, if you need to do a dance video or live chat, do it. Stop worrying about people today and start worrying about your growth.
Those that truly love you will stay and those that you don't need in your life will exit for your own good.
Work hard on your goals.
God bless you all and have a beautiful and productive day 😘
