Ami nem látszik a képeken: Megható történet az Instagramos gyönyörű lány fotói mögött

Csak egy újabb vékony, izmos, gyönyörű, kisminkelt lány az Instáról, akit csak azért követnek, mert szép…vagy mégsem?

54 ezer követőjével osztotta meg, micsoda munka és küzdelem van mögötte. Amikor Mariana édesanyja terhes volt, az orvosok azt mondták neki, a gyermeke még az anyaméhben meghalt, így meg sem próbálták megmenteni. A szülés lezajlott, kiderült, hogy Mariana él, de az orvosok hibája miatt nagyon sok időt töltött oxigén nélkül. Részleges agykárosodást és agyi bénulást szenvedett. Mariana kislányként nem értette, miért különbözik a többi gyerektől, sokat bántották amiatt, hogy tolószékkel közlekedik és nem úgy jár, ahogy mások.

MY STORY: I’ve been wanting to post this for a while. I hope this inspires all of you who have inspired me. I was born in Greece as a premature baby, doctors had told my mum prior to giving birth that I was going to be a still born and so we had no preparation for post labor. I was immediately rushed over to the intensive care unit but by that time I had lost large amounts of oxygen which caused damage to my brain resulting to a permanent condition called ‘Cerebral Palsy’. This affected the movement in my legs, muscle control and balance. I lived in Greece until the age of 5 then moved to Australia seeking more advanced doctors and treatments. As a young kid I never really understood what was really happening and why I was different to all the other kids in school. I got bullied for not walking like all the others and for also being in a wheelchair. This caused major anxiety, depression and being so young I never really knew how to deal with it besides self harm. When I reached year 6 I had multi level surgery, almost not making it through the 8 hour procedure leaving me with 9 scars on my legs. The surgery was thankfully successful so I was on my way to recovery. I was in bed unable to move my legs for almost 8 months however I began to slowly learn how to walk again, step by step. Starting off with a frame, then crutches, to nothing at all. I had made major improvements in my walking and the fastest anyone has ever recovered from this surgery. I was so determined to get better and strut my stuff as the new me. Although I was told that I would never be 100% ‘normal’ my results were incredible and I was gratefully content. I never wanted to be perfect. Just better. Going through high school was also tough as the bullying continued and I was starting to lose hope. So I dropped out and joined my first gym. Thats when my life changed. I fell in love with fitness and I fell in love with myself. This journey to recovery and getting fit has not only changed me physically but most importantly, mentally. I owe everything to those who believed in me and love me just the way I am ❤

Hatéves koráig Mariana minden napja küzdelemmel és depresszióval volt teli. Ekkor végre megműtötték, és kemény, nyolc hónapig tartó rehabilitáció következtében megtanulhatott járni.

Mariana még utána is évekig harcolt az egészségéért, sokat sportolt, hogy fitt legyen. A mozgás nemcsak a testét erősítette meg, de segített túllendülni lelki problémáin is.

Never accept anything less than you deserve.
