When Lori Ann King wrote Come Back Strong Balanced Wellness After Surgical Menopause (2017) she shared her experience of waking up from a devastating surgery, finding herself in sudden surgical menopause, and her journey back to health. Little did she know, she would face more setbacks that would require another comeback a few years later.
Like so many others, 2020 King’s family like a hurricane. In March, her husband retired as a personal trainer due to the pandemic. They decided to pursue a life-long dream of moving to the Southwest, traveling over 2,100 miles to New Mexico where they would experience isolation like never before. With the move, came the loss of her own job and primary income. Just 30 days prior to their departure, the transmission went on their only vehicle. Parts were not available and they were car-less for close to a month. If that wasn’t stressful enough, King’s husband was diagnosed with prostate cancer 6 weeks prior to their move.
Despite the setbacks and challenges, they came back strong. King’s husband kicked cancer’s ass and regained his health and vitality while King wrote two books, launched her own online store, and dove into a career as an author. They are steadfast and diligent in their effort to keep the promise they made to each other long ago: to be as healthy as they possibly can be, every single day, for the rest of their lives. With a focus on nutrition, sleep, stress reduction, play, and self-care, they remain resilient through the toughest of times.
“I believe that no matter how dark the night, joy comes in the morning, whether that joy comes tomorrow, or some morning in the future. Bad things have a time limit. While it is sometimes hard to find the purpose in challenges or traumas, I believe that things that stem from harm can be used for good.”
