About Me: Female, 59, Greeley, CO, member since Mar 2008
Hi! I'm married to a great guy, who tries very hard to be there for me. I don't know what I'd do without him. (Time for a reality check. He doesn't live with me. i live in my own apartment with the help of home health care!). My husband visits, but just "as a friend
[More]". We have three grown kids. I have Aracnoiditis, Severe Perpheral Neuropathy, and i have an illeostomy left as a gift after a near fatal encounter with Sepsis, Sleep Apnea, and a neurogenic bladder. I have had five surgeries on my lumbar spine, and a double fusion in my neck, although that was 15 years after my fall, so for no apparent reason. i slipped on the ice holding my foster daughter, and broke L1,2&3. She is fine, btw. Thanks for asking ;o) i can walk around my tiny apartment with leg braces, but need a wheelchair for the rest of the world out there. I am here to get help when I need it, and give what I can.
