About Me: Female, 48, Modesto, CA, member since May 2012
I am a 45 year old with Chronic Pain. I use to be a foster parent and CPS Social Worker, involved in several community clubs. Now I am a stay at home mom on LongTerm Disability and SSDI.
I have a wonderful adoptive daughter who is 14, adoptive son who is 12, a grown daughter who is 24 and two adorable grandsons. I love my family. I adore all my children weather fostered, adopted, biological, grandchildren. I hate this person I have become since back to back spinal surgeries, loss of my job, loss of my mobility, and constant pain has forced me to slow down and not do a lot of the things I love to do.
I am looking for inspiration and trying to find a way to live with this constant pain and enjoy my life to it's fullest. When working I always dreamed about the day when I would be home with my family and what I would do. Now I am home and dream of the day I can go back to work and enjoy my life again.
Hope everyone is doing well. I have been away for several months. Hope to get caught up and back online. Ready for a great Summer!
Hope everyone is doing well. I have been away for several month, just not feeling very well. Hope to get caught up and back online. Ready for a great Summer!
Been gone for a bit not able to get myself up and online! Flare ups you know how it goes! Sorry if I missed anyone, sometimes it is just hard to keep up. But feeling a bit better and able to lift my head always helps... LOL
