Interview an amazing survivor Jimmy Roenick, from Obese to Beast and ICU to Brand New
Jimmy is a survivor who wants to tell his story on Keepin It Real w/Caramel to help others that may be going through the same or similar situation. He is such an amazing person. Jimmy is from Michigan and he now resides in Tampa, Florida. He use to ride a motorcycle and now Jimmy and his wife rides scooters around town, which his friends laugh at them. I say as long as you are riding...thats all that matters..Jimmy is a Life Transformation Coach @ Motivation and Coaching. For many years Jimmy was obese and he felt depression and didn't have any self confidence or esteem. Jimmy was a chain smoke, alcohol and drug abuser, Type 2 diabetic, heart failure and he had a horrible marriage. Jimmy went through so much in his life. LETS KNOW MORE ABOUT JIMMY: 15 years ago Jimmy was admitted to the Mount Carmel Cardiac center, because he couldn't breath and his legs had ballooned up to 5 times there normal size! He was a chain smoker at just over 3 packs a day! an alcoholic, and drug abuser, opiate pain pills was Jimmy poison of choice, he was in a horrible marriage and when he was admitted to the cardiac care center Jimmy tipped the scales at 420 lbs! His life wasn't in a very hopeful or promising place! That day in the cardiac unit his diagnosis wasn't full of hope and promise either. Jimmy had congestive heart failure, caused by pulmonary edema and a lower aeo itrtic heart aneurysm! The doctors said not only Jimmy was sick, he wouldn't ever work again, his chances of survival were grim and at best. Jimmy would be on Oxygen 24-7 and need a literal bag of medicine to just keep him alive! When Jimmy was 40 years old! his health would improve slightly then back slide horribly when he would let his guard down basically when he would stop listening to the medical team trying to keep him alive! Soon Jimmy started back visiting all his old Demons and they remembered Jimmy well! Like his best friends at a highschool reunion, whiskey, pain pills, and lots of junk food! Jimmy was already a type 2 Diabetic taking 2 different pills in a attempt to control his blood sugar. Jimmy can remember one time, he was going to the doctor for a monthly check up after a night of drinking whiskey mixed with a few percocet and getting a blood sugar reading of nearly 400! If you don't know, normal sugar levels are 100 or less! He remember acting shocked telling the doctor this makes no sense, he has been eating healthy and trying to exercise by walking. Jimmy acting wasn't so good the doctor wasn't buying his BS. Jimmy was sent home with a prescription for insulin and trulicity both self injectable medicines! At that point Jimmy's life was in a pretty dark and miserable place, he didn't have much hope! It has been years ago and now Jimmy life has changed tremendously. His life is so very different now, Jimmy hardly recognize it! The drugs and alcohol is gone! Cigarettes is gone! Poor health is gone! Bad marriage is gone. And now is has the most amazing wife that supports him through everything. She is his #1 fan. This is Jimmy now! At the age of 55, he is an athletic beast, he is healthier and stronger than most 30 year olds! Best of all that hopeless feelings are all gone! Jimmy is blessed to get a chance to tell his story to others and be able to live a better life. His life now is Blessed! Jimmy Roenick wants to share some of the steps, truths and wisdoms he have found. Mostly, he want people to know the hard way on his journey not only to self improvement but for his very own Survival! I hope this story inspire every listen to know the impossible is possible.
