About Me My Life Story! :P

I'm Jackie. My picture is of me and Smokey enjoying nice fall weather. I have friends of all ages and races, but not enough **HINT**. I've been fighting a chronic illness for over four years and have had a lot of changes in my life.

When I was 4 years old I moved from Denver, CO to Tampa, FL. Shortly after moving to Tampa, I became a vegetarian. 6 and a half years later, I moved to Tallahasee, FL (yes, that IS the capital of Florida, if it sounds vaguely familiar). In Tally I took care of a feral cat colony that lived next to my apartment complex. I created an animal rescue club and envolved my whole class, which inspired my teacher to adopt a class cat that had special needs. After about two years, I moved to where I currently live -- Roswell, GA. Four weeks after moving here, I got sick with mononucleosis. Well, time went by and I never got over it. I had every blood test imaginable and went to many different doctors and even a psychiatrist. After 6 months of ruling every possibility out, I was diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Fibromyalgia Syndrome. Never heard of it, eh? Then please visit my website about it:

I live with both of my parents; my favorite stuffed animal (don't think that I just have one!), Pammydog; and my two cats, Smokey and Peaches. I'm very close to animals. I wish I had more cats, but I'm highly allergic to fur. Smokey and Peaches are two of my very best friends. They've been with me for as long as I can remember. I spend a lot of my free time playing with them and watching/feeding my woodland creatures.

'The Lord of the Rings' by J.R.R. Tolkien
'Abarat' by Clive Barker
'Eragon' by Christopher Paolini

    Like an instrument, nothing seems right when our bodies and our spirits are out of tune.

    There is little that compares to the beauty of nature, but having wonderful friends comes very close.

    On the day you were born it was a very special day
    The world was blessed in a most unusual way
    May the magic that brought you to Earth
    Shine all around you on the day of your birth.
