I'm a girl
I'm 34 years old
Height: 5'1" Weight:155
I live in New York, have lived here all my life, I currently live in a rural area on 5 acres.
My favorite food is fried chicken, homemade lumpy mashed potatoes, and sweet corn on the cob.
Some of my favorite activities include roller skating, swimming, spending time with my family, and of course I LOVE cats, I have had cats for the past 30 years. (Man do I sound old, LOL)
My mother is my hero, she never accepted the doctors statements that I wouldn't live to 5 yrs old, don't plan on college, ect. Instead she told me I was going to college, I learned from her working 2 jobs most times and going back to school herself for nursing, you just keep moving forward. She was there for me after I dropped out of college, help support me emotionally and gave me a roof over my head, after I moved out and screwed up, she let me move back home, get back on my feet and helped me get back on track. I had to fix my old academic mistakes and move forward. I now have 2 associates degrees and certification for the LPN schooling, which by the way was more intense and harder than nursing school.
I am an atypical CFer, I think, diagnosed as a baby but not hospitalized since I was 13 months old.
My PFT's have been in the 90's for as long as I can remember.
My CF mainly effects my pancreas, but have had sinus problems, only recently treated for the sinus issues, have had CFRD for the past 8 years but control it with diet, my choice, but may be starting insulin, once again my choice, chronic back pain but doctors don't seem too concerned. I guess if they don't feel it or it doesn't affect their focus they don't care to treat it.
I have had 3 surgeries, 1 thyroidectomy, 2 sinus, hoping to have another sinus surgery next year, hoping it gives me some relief.
I've had a lot of difficulties with doctors out of 8 of them I feel only 2-3 actually listen and really care about me.
I have a wonderful Husband whom I have been with over 7 years, married 2. (I wanted the house first, and I got it, LOL)
I currently work full time as an RN, but have done many jobs including dishwasher, waitress, bookkeeper, toll attendant, cashier, pet sitter, nurses aide, and LPN.
We are currently trying fertility treatment it get pregnant, no luck yet.
Currently my kiddies are my kitties. I have 7 cats and 1 dog. I would probably be that crazy cat lady if my husband didn't keep me so grounded, aka, always tells me no when I want another cat.
Oh and as you can tell, I talk too much.
