Hi. I’m getting that SAT essay feeling, although somehow I feel this might be even more important for my future. I’m 21. I was born with a heart defect and had open heart surgery when I was 10 months old. The surgery saved my life, but the years of antibiotics that I have taken for problems before and after have probably created unintended consequences.



Admittedly, I have not done as much as I could have to help. My eating habits are not good and my sleeping habits are (well, legendary). Needless to say, it’s difficult to generate the energy to change when you don’t have the energy to function. My mother has always been convinced that improper nutrition, lack of proper exercise and a weakened immune system can be reversed and give me a new lease on life. The truth is, I don’t know what energy is. I’m not sure I have ever experienced it. I’ve always been exhausted and almost always totally congested.



My parents are willing to relocate me to NYC from Kentucky (go Cats!) and for the first time I’m really hopeful that this could be one of those times when my mother is right . I’m currently taking an antidepressant an ADHD medication and something to help me sleep. Thanks for the opportunity!
