“Early in 2018, I hit rock bottom. 145 lbs vs 171 lbs. March vs June. Lost vs found. It was the darkest and most painful time of my life,” Valenciano wrote.

“I kept in so much that one day, I imploded and tried to hurt myself to numb myself of the pain, disappointment, uncertainty, doubt and fear,” he added.

Early in 2018, I hit rock bottom. 145lbs vs 171lbs. March vs June. Lost vs found. It was the darkest and most painful time of my life. I kept in so much that one day, I imploded and tried to hurt myself to numb myself of the pain, disappointment, uncertainty, doubt and fear. I am sharing this post to show you that there will always be hope and that you are not alone. That the light at the end of the tunnel will keep shining, you just need to keep walking towards it. I want to thank my family, my closest of friends and doctors who were with me since day one, for never giving up on me. You know who you are. I am extremely blessed to have you all in my life. God bless you all and I hope and pray that when you feel like giving up, don’t. Surround yourself with people who genuinely care for you and seek help. There is no shame in acknowledging where you are. Accept, rebuild and move forward. Life will forever be a continuous struggle, find people to struggle strong with. Stop surviving and start living. If there’s one thing I got out of all this, it is empathy. I am not ashamed of where I’ve been because I am proud of where I’m headed. Happy YOU year, everyone. May you have the greatest year yet. This won’t be the last time the enemy will try to take me, but next time, I will be ready. Bring it.

He then thanked the people who were there for him: his family, his closest friends, and doctors.

Valenciano said he is not ashamed of where he had been because he is proud of where his future will take him.

“If there’s one thing I got out of all this, it is empathy. I am not ashamed of where I’ve been because I am proud of where I’m headed,” he wrote.

He said he will be ready if “the enemy” will try to take him again.

“Happy YOU year, everyone. May you have the greatest year yet. This won’t be the last time the enemy will try to take me, but next time, I will be ready. Bring it,” he said. /ee
