Appreciate the small things in life.
After 3 months of staying in hospital, I came back to my home today. My condition suddenly went bad and I was diagnosed as DCM (dilated cardiomyopathy), which is a type of a heart disease. My doctor told me that my condition is very serious, so I should consider getting a heart transfer in the future.
After one month in hospital, I had an operation to have an ICD fitted. As such I will not be able to wrestle anymore. Also, I had to leave my job, which I like.
At that time I couldn’t understand and accept everything that happened to me. I asked myself ‘why, why me?’ I thought my life had just finished.
However, now, I really want to get over this condition. I want to live and spend time together with the people who I love as long as possible. I still have a dream in my life!
Many people’s love gave me courage, especially my family and girlfriend. I understand her situation, to live in Japan as a foreigner is not easy, but she is always beside me when I have hard times and makes me smile. My family and I couldn’t get through this without her. She is a part of our family now.
I have found more precious things than I lost. Now I feel full of love and happiness to spend just normal days with my wonderful people. Now I can appreciate the small things in life.
A big thank you to everyone who is supporting me. I will do my best to try to keep updating you with good news.
