Learned the Hard Way

Today's HAWMC prompt: Learned the Hard Way. What’s a lesson you learned the hard way? Write about it for 15 minutes today.
I am one of "those" people who always learn the hard way. I tend to make the same mistakes over and over and never get it right. It's the same with my health and the lesson I've learned to hard way. I know what my health risks are, but I don't listen to my body. I listen with my mind. I know I shouldn't feel my body with junk, but I do anyway. Now, I am paying the price with a worn out, broke down body.
I've never been good at learning lessons. I have to literally be hit on the head to get it. I know when something isn't right or good for me, but I forgo any thought to the consequence. I throw caution to the wind with abandon. I know I will suffer, but at the time I disregard any lessons I need to learn.
Time is not on my side when it comes to the lessons I should have learned throughout my fifty plus years. I still have to be hit on the head when it comes to learning lessons about my health. I can't go a day without caffeine, knowing it poisons my system. I can't go a day without stuffing junk food into my mouth. Becoming a healthy person is a lesson I will learn the hard way if I'm not dead first(please hit me on the head a few times and I might just learn a thing or two.)
