Glenis's Story

My doctor two years ago put me on blood pressure medicine, I already had lost three siblings to heart disease (two sisters and one brother).  When I was placed on the pill, I became somewhat depressed. I started eating all the foods that were bad for me. It wasn’ t until the one of my preschoolers I worked with talked with me. She accused me of not looking well and wanted to know why I was missing work. She stated, Ms Glenis don’t you know we miss you when you are not here, you’re my favorite teacher! That did something to me. I started exercising, researching food and seeing my doctor on a regular basis. I came up with a plan and released all stress and my care upon the Lord. Even though I am still on the pill I am on my way of coming off of it and keeping my healthy lifestyle.
