About Me: Female, 33, ST. E, MO, member since Sep 2008
I'm a 26 year old disabled stay at home Mommy. My son, Dylan, just started Kindergarten this year and has been the highlight of my life. I also have a wonderfully supportive husband, Ryan, who has stuck with me through the good and the bad, sickness and health, which
[More] is more than a lot of spouses can say. We also made the leap into homeownership this year with the purchase and remodel of a three bedroom rancher, although it ended up being a 2 bedroom after the renovation. Before that, we had been living in a one bedroom apartment - the only apartments available in our small town - for a year, and I am SO glad to be out of there!
I am a member of MedHelp because of a long history of back problems, which have stemmed off into other problems, including severe depression. The opportunity to chat and know that I'm not alone in these problems is a blessing. I have a hard time doing the things I enjoy like browsing on the computer (my legs hurt badly after only a few minutes), painting, even reading a book is hard for me. I try to not even think about the other things I used to enjoy before all of these problems started, like horsback riding, hiking, and anything outdoors or involving animals. I grew up on a farm, so all of that was a very large part of my life, and I had to give most of it up. But, I'm trying to cope with it all, even though it seems like every time I visit a Dr. they find something else - but, with the support of family and friends, I have hope.
