I'm a middle aged woman who has spent her whole life in pain. You can see it when you look in my eyes, so there's no point in painting some rosey picture here. I do my best to carry on and be a good person. I love my husband, children, grandchildren, and Jesus. I do what I can to help animal causes, environmental causes, and people whom The Lord puts in my path. I have had a really hard life, and I can't hide it any longer.
I've been in 5 auto accidents, and physically hit by 2 cars, one of which only broke my left arm. I can no longer supinate my left arm because of it. I've broken my right little toe 3 times, and my left little toe twice. I almost drowned in Catalina when I was only 11. I have also survived cancer. Is that wild enough?
Live by what you believe, be true to yourself and others, and do the best you can at what you're doing with the amount of energy you have.
What Gives Me Hope
Reading the Chicken Soup Books, and other books like them.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by
If I were the President the first thing I would do is to make sure everyone in the USA had health coverage. The second would be to boycott any country that does not adhere to the moritorium against whaling. I would also make it illegal to kill wolves, coyotes and the like in America.
What/who changed my life and why
My two eldest daughters. They have both kicked me out of their lives and will not allow me to see my grandchildren. That was the last straw on the Camel's Back for me. I'm no longer a whole person, just a shell that holds my shattered heart.
