Life Changing Event

Recommended Posts

Throughout my life, I have always had a group of friends close to me for the last 11 years, (3rd Grade). During my Junior year of high school, (2017-2018), I had to go through a procedure that ruined my life. This procedure was painful and I couldn't be in any-form active for 8 months. My friends had learned how much fun they could have when I wasn't around, and I was left by myself with my own thoughts. Once the procedure had ended, I gained a small amount of weight which I've been working on losing lately, and I thought I could come back to my friends with open arms, but that didn't happen. I would see my friends in the halls at school and I wouldn't even say anything to them, I felt so distant. The years 2017, 2018, and 2019 have been the worst years of my life. Luckily, my family was there for me to have fun and laugh with but it didn't feel enough. I joined Defy this year in late July, but this isn't me talking about how great Defy is or how much I enjoy the platform, It's all about the people in this great community that helped me out and enjoyed having me around. I want to give a major thank you to everyone who had helped me out. @Seth Romero, @Nydekore, @Bowie, @Holikwakkemoli, @1stSavagerY, @Khirgoth, @ItzGray, @Eddie, @Thunder6uddy, @ellie, @Bluezyy, @pdizzlemynizzlefoschizzle, @StatTrak D-Boy l Janitor, @Cole, and @Izugoat. There are plenty of more people that had helped me out, but these are the people I have spent a lot more time with than the others. Anyone reading this, if you had made me laugh or at least happy, just know you should be in this list as well! I have found out in the past week that what I went through during my Junior year has come back. Tomorrow I have an appointment and I will have to endure this all once again. But if going through the years 2017, 2018, and 2019 with all the pain and problems I had would lead me to meeting these people and others. I would go through it all again just to re-live all the fun times I had with most of you! Lets hope everything goes well and that 2020 will be a greater year for anyone who hasn't been in their best recently! Thank you for such a great welcoming into the community and just being my friend.

Mike, you are the gem of DEFY. Thank you for being here, and I hope your procedure goes well.

Good luck man.

 

Edit: What I just said sounded a little cringey, it was meant to be heartwarming.

well first off let me just say, good luck on your procedures, I hope all goes well! Second, you have to go through it a second time? that kinda sucks (I don't know what procedure or what has to be done. so im just going to assume that it will suck to do it a second time) other than that, I hope you're recovery won't take long!

I was told my first time going through it that it’s common in young-adult males and that a lot of people usually go through it multiple times after the first. So I’ll probably get it another time. I think the only thing that changes is how long I go through the procedure considering I got surgery last time that was supposed to help.

Wait you're getting another breast? I thought two implants were enough.

 

Good luck and hope you recover from whatever your surgery is. You're lucky you don't have to run in real life to run in CS:GO, so you can still play TTT with us :D

Nope, the procedure deals with something in my lower back so I won't be able to sit up or lay down on my back. I have to either be standing or laying on my side. The reason I can't be physically active is because throughout the procedure they keep it as an open wound. Any physical activity would make me feel light headed.

So I would like to add some more people to the list I had made above. @num3rical, @Dev, @PotatoStyle, @Niall Ferguson, @MSWS, @Josh, and @Coach Krim. All these people but 1 are current staff but I choose to add them because they are so helpful and while I don't really talk with them often, they are still great people who have helped out a lot. And for Krim he was someone who I was able to talk to. Another reason for adding them is I believe they should be publicly announced just as much as everyone else was!
