It’s been a year since Kim Zolciak Biermann suffered a mini-stroke that ended her run on Dancing With The Stars, and resulted in a necessary heart surgery. I can speak from experience when I say every “anniversary” of a life-changing health crisis is emotional, and it’s best to reflect than keep your feelings bottled up.
Recently, Kim got real with The Daily Dish and admitted that “the series of events changes everything!”
Kim explained that her views will be forever different, and she’s never been happier to be alive! “I don’t even know if I would know what to do without chaos. There’s always something going on. My health definitely has changed my perspective. I don’t know if I would look at [Kroy Biermann’s] free agency the way that I do today a year ago. There’s parts of me that are very thankful for my stroke and how I’ve evolved. I’m just not as attached to [questions like,] ‘Where are we going to live? What are we going to do?’ It doesn’t matter. We’ll work it out and we’ll figure it out, which is actually a really awesome feeling,” Kim revealed.
Kim’s twin, AKA her daughter Brielle also echoed what Kim said about her new outlook on life. “Before my mom had the stroke, she was always, like she said, very on top of everything and she would worry so much. [Now,] just not as much. You’re very loose, carefree. You used to be up my ass and you kind of leave me alone now,” Brielle (somewhat) joked.
Kim shared her feelings on her stroke-a-versary with her social media followers as well, and as much as Kim can be too much sometimes, I really admire that she’s living by the outlook, “make your mess her message!”
“Kim Zolciak-Biermann:1 year ago today my life changed. Having a stroke has changed me in so many ways. At 37 I thought I was invincible ..boy was I wrong. I thank God everyday that I’m still here on this planet. ?? I didn’t know that would be my last dance however I wasn’t feeling that good that day, even@tonydovolani noticed something was off but rather than listen to myself I pushed through. Not smart. We have to listen to ourselves, especially us women. We put our husband and children before us often times and we need to really listen to our bodies. There is (usually) warning signs. Had I not taken excedrin migraine the day before the stroke I’m not so sure where I would be (has aspirin In it which thinned my blood) listen to your body, it can happen at any age. Love you guys and appreciate all your support! Maybe someday Tony& I will make it back to an All Star addition ??? #DWTS#OneOfTheBestThingsIHaveEverDone#TakeCareOfYou”
Kim made it clear that this scary situation gave her a second chance at life, and she plans on taking full advantage of it! “I just want to convey to people that it all will work out. I’m always one of those worrywarts. It all has to be planned out; it all has to fit like a puzzle and if it doesn’t, I’m all over the place. [But] it doesn’t really matter,” Kim wrapped!
