Walgreen’s – America’s Wake Up Call

When I was in Junior High, I injured my hip. At that point in time, I thought it was a pulled muscle from not stretching before cheer practice. I shrugged it off and though I had pain, I kept cheering and kept riding horses competitively. I dealt with pain off and on it for years.

In my 20s, I was told I had severe arthritis in my hip. It was diagnosed as degenerative arthritis. The pain in it was unbearable if I didn’t take my prescribed medications. I was told if I didn’t take it easy, I would need a hip replacement by 40. Fast forward to January 2019. We had a big snow storm on New Years Eve and I took a spill on the ice….right. on. my. bad. hip. The pain was excruciating and I found out that because of the deterioration of my bone, the fall caused a fracture in my hip. I also found out that the arthritis had progressed to the point of bone spurs and I would need a hip replacement.

This is why Walgreens Wake Up Call is so important to me. When dealing with chronic illness, taking medications regularly and on time is so important. I am the worst about this! I constantly get so caught up in day to day life that I forget to take my medication! I have had days where I completely forget or take it very late. Did you know that 50% of Americans aren’t taking their medication as prescribed or on time?

Not Ur Average Mom Of 5

Most importantly, I am a mother of 5. I don't have your typical happily ever after family. I am divorced (one of those nasty messy ones), I have way too many bills (don't we all) and I really don't have any interesting hobbies (wasn't always that way, I grew up riding horses) I am in a relationship with the love of my life and my happily ever after. He is the most amazing and loving person I have ever met. Payton deals with my crazy life and family and embraces is with so much love and support. He is the BEST dad and father figure I know). He is an Engineer for our local fire department and that is HARD. I honestly am so proud of him and so proud of what he does BUT I HATE his job, I hate nights away and I hate the time it takes from our family. People don't realize how difficult it is. At the end of the day, I am so thankful for him and our life together, I can't wait to spend forever with him. My kids....they are terrorists. Seriously. I grew up as an only girl out of 4 total kids. I always wanted 4 kids - 2 girls and 2 boys. Well, the big man upstairs had other plans! I am bless with one daughter and four sons. My daughter is the oldest. Makenzee Adele is 11, going on 18. She is smart and hardworking and LOVES school. Caleb is next. He is 9 and so loving. He works really hard in school and loves baseball. Next is Connor. He is 7 and very advanced in school. He hates doing any school work and has the silliest personality and can light up a room. Connor plans to play professional football for the Arizona Cardinals when he grows up. Moving forward is Keegan. I had the worst pregnancy with him. I had Hyperemisis Gravidum and was on home IV and Zofran for the majority of the pregnancy. He was born healthy and is 4 and a wonderful boy who causes more trouble than necessary (he was recently diagnosed with Autism and ADHD). Lastly is Rhett. He is the baby and loves getting treated like he is. He was born April 5 (I am seriously not changing the months constantly) and LOVES cuddles possibly more than his dad. So that is a bit about me and my family! Subscribe to my blog to read more about my WILD ride!!
