Cheyann Clark, a young woman of 23 years old, devoted much of her life to worshiping her body, practicing "fitness" and different sports disciplines, in order to improve her physical condition.
It was what worried her most. Her main hobbies were tattoos and sharing images of her well-formed body on various social networks.
Accustomed to compliments and good comments, she showed to be a very safe woman and clear in her objectives. This allowed her to project herself as a very safe and attractive person.
One day, without thinking and looking for information from specialized people, she decided to start self-medication and began to take birth control pills. And she said to herself, what could happen to me, I'm just taking some pills?
After a few months she began to suffer from a sharp pain in her belly. She went to the doctor and to her surprise and bad luck she was diagnosed with cancer.
She was suffering from ovarian cancer, unfortunately of a very aggressive type of it.
The doctors informed her that she should start receiving chemotherapy immediately, since her illness had evolved very quickly. The medical opinion about the diagnosis was that her terrible illness had occurred due to self-medication to which Cheyann had undergone.
The main consequences of self-medication is that the body rejects the treatment to which it is subjected, and therefore the risk of contracting and developing serious diseases is very high.
The news devastated the young woman, her illness would force her to change her lifestyle, withdraw from sports. She would have to return to her parent's house so they could accompany her, and take care of her during her illness.
She had to leave her job, and also postpone her goals and plans. The disease would still have another change in her life, something that would affect what she wanted, her well taken care of and dear body.
Cheyann had to undergo several chemotherapy sessions and then do a delicate surgery, after which the young woman was unrecognizable.
According to her own words: "My life changed so fast that I did not even have time to assimilate it. I remember that one day I saw myself in the mirror, as I always did before the illness, and I did not recognize myself. I fell to the ground and started to cry as a child. I thought my life was over. "
"Fortunately, thanks to the love of God and my family, I understood that all the muscle and all the beauty I had was superficial. What is truly worthed was inside me and that nobody can ever take it from me, not even all evils of the world.”
Once recovered from the chemotherapy sessions and the surgery itself, the brave young woman decided that this disease would not defeat her.
So she made the decision to recover first, and then start to resume and continue with her life plans.
She continued to receive chemotherapy, but little by little she was able to recover her health and spirit.
The will to do things and the desire to overcome is what miss Cheyann Clark has shown us with her story.
Neverthelessб one lesson remains from this story - never play with our health; be a little more responsible for your body, but more important, DO NOT AUTOMEDICATE!
