About Me: Female, 30, Novi, MI, member since Feb 2012
I feel that something out there keeps feeding me positive energy, and leads me down a better path each day. On top of being a Chiari and Syringomyelia survivor, I am a Nurse. I have my Bachelors Science in Nursing from University of Michigan Ann Arbor since 2007. By im
[More]pulse, I decided to take a job in Neuroscience and Neurosurgery where 2 years into the job, I found I had been misdiagnosed and needed surgery right away. I feel some greater force (whatever that is) has allowed me the chance of figuring out my ailment, and in turn has molded me into the empathetic and compassionate health care provider that I am today.
Patients may say to me as a nurse at the bedside, "You don't know what I'm going through, I'm in so much pain." Sometimes I chuckle in my head to myself, "Oh honey, what you're experiencing at the moment is not anything compared to what I went through after Chiari Surgery. Suck it up!" ;O)
