Monsters Inside Me season 5 premiere episode
OCTOBER 9th 10 PM E/P.
That episode features our story.
Why should you watch it?
I was chosen for a reality adventure race: 72 Hours: Fijian Jungle as a result of the video submission below. Watch it and get to know Hurricane Rita.
I had the opportunity to fly to Fiji and race through the jungle for 3 days with 2 strangers on a mission to find a briefcase full of cash. Such a fun time! I had no idea how true the words, “I’m a survivor,” were until I returned to the states.
While spending 3 days in the jungle, I ate a slug and within 4 days of being back in the States, visited the emergency room for the first time. After 3 weeks and 5 visits to the emergency rooms resulting in being sent away with crazy, separate diagnoses of dehydration, traveler’s diarrhea, a UTI, sciatic flair, and simple confusion, I was finally admitted to the hospital on my 6th visit by a doctor with some sense.
By then I was 99lbs, grey, incontinent, with nerve damage over half of my body, hallucinating, and incapable of holding a coherent conversation. I was obviously dying.
Yet my lover told me I was beautiful while he stroked my hair. I remember.
My soulmate, champion, and biggest fan, MY KING, not only stayed by my side, moved into the hospital with me, fed me, changed me, cleaned me, and carried me, but also taught me how to walk again after the doctors realized I’d lost all of my reflexes.
He introduced me to yoga, and with nothing but love, paused the dvd over and over again to allow me to get into different positions.
I get to marry that amazing, incredibly strong, dedicated, and loving human being on October 4th, 2014.
This ensures we wake up on our 3rd year anniversary as lovers having shared their love with family and friends in Magical Moab, UT.
Save the date. October 9th, 9PM on Animal Planet. Monsters Inside Me.
