When you receive love or knowledge you pass it on
Over the past 25 years I have experienced numerous physical, emotional and mental challenges. From age 21 I suffered with Fibromyalgia which is a muscle debilitating disease, which confined me to bed on several occasions and required medication for some relief. A thyroid condition caused me to gain 45 lbs. After suffering from undiagnosed gallbladder disease for nine months surgery was performed. Due to the delay in treatment I also suffered from an inflamed pancreas.
I had two children that throughout their lives suffered many life-threatening diseases. Launda from age 3 had bowel problems. At age 10 she had a "Bowel Obstruction" which if it would have gone undetected for 48 hours longer she would have died. She also had three surgeries for Fissures and was borderline "Crohnís Disease". Christine at 14 Days old had "Spinal Meningitis." At age 5 was diagnosed with cancer. This caused many other illnesses because her immune system was depleted. Then at age 16 she had an abscessed kidney in 3 places.
Having the stamina to get through all this was really put to the test in 1988 and 1989. On February 14, 1988 my 18-year-old daughter Launda took her life She could not see beyond the break-up of a two-year relationship with what she thought was the love of her life. At that time, I felt guilt, embarrassment and such emptiness. I knew I had to go on for Christine. My mother had been ill for 15 years with Rheumatoid Arthritis. The prescription drugs she had been given that were suppose to help finally got the best of her and she went to be with the Lord December 3, 1988. Then on October 25, 1989, I received a call at 9:30 PM from a priest at the hospital. A car had hit my daughter Christine and I was to get to the hospital immediately. That night I had to make the hardest decision of my life. The doctor asked me to decide if I wanted to take her off "Life support." She was brain dead and there was nothing more they could do. I said, "God wanted her home to be with her sister and Grandmother." I then gave my permission.
I said to my husband that night, "The extension of my life is over. How can I go on?" Launda and Christine were my only biological children. Thank God for Marion and Brenda, children I had raised from my first marriage. With their love and the love of my family I would go on. I had to be strong!
As a result of multiple devastating issues, I sought emotional and psychological treatment, which included the drug "Prozac". These drugs were to just help me function. It was then that Youngevity came into my life. Without these products I would have been on medication for the rest of my life. At one time that would have been acceptable to me, but not any longer.
Iíve tried to take you on a journey of some of my lifeís experiences. You may want to follow my latest footsteps and try Youngevity to see if it has a positive effect on your life as it has on mine. In the last year of using Youngevity, I have much energy; Iím active and lost 40 unneeded pounds. Iím doing my Youngevity business out of my home, all without the need of medication.
Sincerely, Yvonne Hoyman
