It’s been 6 months since he had brain surgery to remove a benign tumor. Although it was benign it was wreaking havoc on his body because it was secreting growth hormone and he had been a slowly expanding for years without us realizing it. I know it sounds crazy but he was literally growing, his nose, his skull, his feet, hands... everything was getting bigger and we just thought it was weight gain. You can see it in this picture too which was taken about a year before his surgery. His headaches we noticed. He was almost disabled by migraines and neck pain for years and nobody could tell us why. He was always tired from always being in pain. Always sleeping. Sleeping his life away. The pressure in his brain had increased as well contributing to all his symptoms and making him almost lose his sight completely. We had moved to Israel and had to move back to NY to have this taken care of and tg we did. He had an incredible team of neurosurgeons from Mt. Sinai to remove the tumor and also perform a second surgery in his spine to place a shunt so the excess fluid from his brain could be drained away. It’s has been such an insane journey and a hard recovery for him, harder than we expected but he’s such a trooper. What an amazing example of resilience and perseverance. Days where i didn’t understand how he was getting out of bed and working on top of being the best dad and husband we could ask for. So grateful to him for being who he is and sharing the journey with me 🖤🖤🖤

Fun Fact: I’d imagined what it would be like waking up from brain surgery hundreds of times in the month that I’d had to wait for the day to come. What I wasn’t expecting was for my eyes to energetically “ping” open afterward with the frantic idea that the fate of the bees... yes, BEES 🐝 rested in my hands. I was insistent that I needed to “Save the bees!” If you know me, you may already know that I’m a fan of bees. I like the idea of maybe someday owning a hive or two in a small community where my bees could help pollinate the gardens of my fellow community members, where we all live off our land, grow our own food and share the overflow with our neighbours. That’s actually a dream of mine. 🤓 None the less, small steps can lead to big strides. So I made a honey oat “Save the Bees” soap. I’m not sure which foundation yet, (still doing my research) but proceeds from my “Save the Bees” soap will be donated to a cause to help our beloved bee friends! 🐝♥️ #witch #witches #witchcraft #witchesofinstagram #witchessociety #honey #oat #handmadesoap #savethebees #beelove #allnatural #braintumoursarehard #peaceoutgert #brainsurgery #brainsurgerysurvivor

Life often drains us of all color. We are left feeling empty and helpless. Told that in these spaces we earn trophies, life lessons, and special abilities that give us wings later on, but void of all true comfort. I have found that sometimes the best gift is surviving.In the dark, when big promises of what we might receive fall to the floor, the sheer impact of seeing someone live through impossible moments is the most powerful thing for us to see. Maybe I won't become the very essence of inspiration for a burdened soul, but I WILL carry on.

Leighton is only 3 years old and he knows we don’t say the word can’t. It’s like the F word in our household. It’s ok for things to be extremely difficult but when we use the word can’t we are conditioning our brains to believe it. In stroke recovery simple things like this can make a huge difference in your recovery... #dontsaycant #anythingispossible #anythingispossiblewithgod #teachthemyoung #prouddaddy #spiritualawakening #exerciseismedicine #strokesurvivor #strokerecovery #brainsurgerysurvivor #inspirationalspeakers #luckyman #everydayisablessing

PLEASE SWIPE LEFT 👁 @e_reid35 posted his cleats for last nights game. Only to later receive the letter on picture three. 😔 The oppressor will deliberately try and sabotage you in any legal way possible before or even while, resulting to unethical manners. I'm glad I've kept up with my boycott of the #nfl. I've given up Sunday football dinners at my home and I don't regret it at all. We should already have our own football league 🤷🏽‍♀️ There's far too many wealthy Black people who enjoy football not to start our own. Imagine if Black and Brown people brought or created our own EVERYTHING. Imagine going to wealthy malls AND NOT being followed around or walking down a busy street and not hoping the police do not make eye contact with you or worse try to stop you. Imagine never worrying again about any person of color and the #runawayslavepatrol interactions EVER. As an #armybrat I still recall growing up being taught that the #military tanks were there to PROTECT us ALL on #domesticsoil however even after becoming a #brainsurgerysurvivor I can recall #ferguson and the military tank that rolled next to me as its driver taunted me on some sound system literally telling me to move before he legally shoots me down or rolls over me. I remember fighting my tears as I marched and yelled at him blurred words that I also remembered from the pocket sized #constitution booklet I was given in the third grade. So yeah it's much bigger than the NFL and until these white men who run the league can acknowledge this fact, I honestly believe every person of color should boycott and every successful Black CEO should be willing to offer each and every one a job. That is true #communityunity and #nationbuilding. I only pray I live to see this day, I #educateandorganize for true liberation from such a racist and ungrateful nation. - Dr. V #minister #neuroscience #drofsacredspiritualhealing #wellnesscoach #lifecoach #mindset #traumacoach #mentalhealth #cognitivebehavioralfacilitator #advisor #entrepreneur #dumbo #reentrycoach #businessmindfulness #cognitivebehavioralcoach #reikipractitioner #wombman #visionaryvministries #visionaryv

It's always hard to deal with injuries mentally, but I like to think about it as a new beginning. I can't change what happened, so the focus needs to go toward healing and coming back stronger than before.

A few random photos from the past couple of days. We arrived about 6pm last night... I slept through most of the trip to N.C. aside from lunch and a handful of hours in town it’s been mostly relaxing and self-care in our little cabin. Tomorrow things start to get more real, preop at 8 and 9, then our parents get here in the evening. I have moments of panic, but for the most part I’ve been ok. Pulling into the cabin there were so many memories. I wanted to get back into the car and leave. I remember so few details about this place, but 4 years ago TODAY I was having #brainsurgery and recovering in this cabin. So many painful memories associated with Hendersonville, but also the great joy and grace of being giving a new lease on life. Lots pinging around in my head y’all. I’m reminding myself how quickly time passes, and soon this will be nothing more than a memory. Hold me close dear friends!! XOXO 💋 #ChiariWarrior #BrainSurgerySurvivor

Trust me after losing over 100 pounds even I have days I question my beauty or how flattering is my new body to the opposite sex? But over all I'm reminded that beauty, true beauty stems from within and I'm gorgeous because my character is simply divine💯- Ms. V #loveyourself #onmyjourney #knowyourworth #yupstillblessedandverygrateful #bksamirah #blesseditbe #brainsurgerysurvivor #braintumorsurvivor #fuckcancer #100poundsdown #wellnesscoach #lifecoach #chakras #energy #entrepreneur #bksamirah #visionaryv #goddessv #godsgotme #girlpower #wantforyoursisterasyouwantforyouself #wantforothersasyouwantforyourself #hair #fashion #style

DO NOT ALLOW ANYONE NOR SOCIETY TO DICTATE YOUR DESTINY. You were born to be great and your #environment only plays a part, ultimately it is what is in your heart and how deep your drive goes for your goals. Everybody has a story, stop hating on those who you think have made it and start taking notes. - Ms. V #wantforyoursisterasyouwantforyouself #wantforotherswhatyouwantforyourself #mentor #motivationalspeaker #purpose #socialjusticeactivist #communityunity #visionaryv #bksamirah #goddessv #blacklivesmatter #hiphop #hair #hoodchronicles #energy #brainsurgerysurvivor

Just stopped in to check in with my #hemotology #oncologist . Can't wait for my bloodwork to come back to see how much this #moringapowder tea is increasing my iron naturally. I try to eliminate all man made medications except one and my medical team keeps me on tight follow ups but still are always amazed at my progress since becoming a #brainsurgerysurvivor - Dr. V #nyulangone #yupstillblessedandverygrateful visionaryv #womensempowerment #teachtheyouththetruth #wellnesscoach #holistichealer #thedeprogrammingfreedomschool #ladiesfirst #classicwoman #selfpreservation #mindset #ambition #sisterhood #lifecoach #neuroscience #cognitivebehavioralfacilitator #wellnesscoach #minister

Y'all gotta learn the difference between #healers #lightworkers #energyhealing #reikipractitioners and straight up FRAUDS before you give all your money away and wanna label us all fake. Oh and the other part is YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE IT TO RECEIVE IT AND THE UNIVERSE DOES NOT MOVE ON YOUR DIME. You do not control the powers that be. One more thing, STOP ACTING LIKE DARK MAGIC IS BAD. Just because I say I do not practice it does not mean that I do not believe that it exists. You have to have dark magic just as you have a good and you should not deal with someone who does not know how to deal with the Darkside, come back and still be surrounded by light.

"I can hear the Piper,
Casting his poisonous spell,
Just when I get on my feet,
He whispers melodies from hell.

Lullabies I can barely hear,
Memories backed with musical fear,
Rewiring my brain through my ear,
Using a paddle for a giant ship to stear.
Falling for it every time,
Encapsulated by his rhymes,
Can't make right all my crimes.

Hopeless,
Helpless,
Selfdepreciatingly useless.

Tripping into his line again,
Losing everything worth having within.

Melting,
Falling,
Fading,
Disappearing from view. 'Don't listen to the Piper,
Though beauty he holds,
His notes are copies,
Broken moments,
Strategic lows.
But, you, my Princess..
You are a high.
You are unique in your beauty.
You are bold underneath,
You are the neverending melody,
Of a womans unquenchable strength.'"- ashleym414
