About Me

I am premantly permanently disabled. And I wanted to open up a website for people like me that has Chronic Illness. I want to get to know anybody and everybody. I was born with Crouzon's Disease and it won't get better it will get worse. We don't know when but sometime soon I'll be bed ridden for the rest of my life. I was born with out a soft spot and I have 2 plastic plates in my head. So I have to be careful at anything I do. I can't have stress and I can't have headaches either. But I love life as it may be. I have good days and I have bad days and I have worse days too. But I love my Lord and Savior. I know one day He is going to come back for me and I am going to have a prefect body just like my Lord and Saivor.

Come and join us I hope we have alot of fun and get to know each other and vent and open up.  :)

About Me

Hiya someone must remember me, back in the late 80's early 90'si was a mouthy cow most of the time up on front row annoying the hell, or trying to get Mike's and Cheryl's attention. I used to hang about with Tracey Robinson, Emma Lyne, Lynne Chellingworth, Matt, De Land, Max and Terry West and Gilan Harrison. God we were such a mouthy , loud mad bunch, you wouldn't have been able to miss us, i was mad on Mike Nolan, come to think about it i still am!!


Mind you that was a while ago ;back in 2005 my left leg was run over by a forklift truck, degloved and crushed, whilst i was working in the warehouse in my local Asda store here in Weymouth where i had worked for 5 years previously, i am now disabled on crutches and in a wheelchair.

 

I also suffer from the deblilitating condition FIBROMYALGIA and chronic fatigue syndrome, so i doubt whether i will be able to come to many fizz concerts now


I'd love to get in contact with the "old Fizzers" or newer ones who remember me, please feel free to on my email address above , HERE'S TO THE MAGIC!!

About Me

Hi!


I am Lynn and I live in western Washington state, about 18 miles north of Seattle.


I am a retired elementary classroom teacher. Currently I am finishing a manuscript of devotional writings for those going through life challenges. That certainly includes those of us who live with chronic pain and/or illnesses. This project is in process. I am at the step where I have been referred to a book agent. That is a miracle!


 I live with vestibular dysfunction which means I am in a constant state of dizziness. It can escalate to full fledges spinning vertigo, on again/ off again nausea. There are visual limitations and brain stem involvement so no therapies have been able to work to relieve it. It hit me in March, 1987 and has changed my life dramatically.


I believe we are more than our challenges and that God still has a plan for our lives when such challenges come to stay. He helps us find new ways to serve Him. I had to take an early retirement from my beloved teaching career. I guess one could say I am now working to help encourage God's "grown up" kids!


I have been fairly homebound these past 5 years from the results of being in the wrong therapy program. But some "push" is coming back.


I am single ( never married ) and live alone and am ever grateful that I still can be on my own and get through the day at my own pace - slow but moving!


One thing I know for sure is that God is my strength and He has always been faithful through the darkest of days. He was before my illness hit and He has been every day since.

Vestibular Dysfunction - explained in "about me" , some fibromyalgia, a benign cyst in my spine and neck which short circuits the balance messages getting to my brain, two herniated discs in my neck ( surely there from the years of straining to keep my balance! ).


I am a breast cancer survivor - surgery in 1987 and chemo' 1987-88! Praise God!

About Me

I am a happy, loving, caring person, with a great sense of humor! I love making people laugh and hearing people laugh, especially my grandson Gabriel. I live in chronic pain every day of my life, due to Arachnoiditis (NOT fear of spiders!). I have fibromyalgia, and DDD, among other health issues, but I try to enjoy something about each day. I have a strong faith in Jesus Christ and rely on His strength each day. I want to touch as many hearts as I can through a Card ministry I have or by meeting people online. I have been married for 29 years to a wonderful, caring man. We have 3 grown kids and one grandchild. I want lots more, but its hard to get my kids to cooperate! LOL!!

My disability is RSDS (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome).  I have chronic, severe, right-sided chest pain.  I developed this after having surgery  to "clean up" the area around my right lung in which I had developed an empyema. I became disabled in January of 2005.

I also have numerous back problems (DDD,DJD, herniated & bulging discs, osteophytes, etc).

I worked in retail pharmacy (pharmacist) for 18 years & in 2 hospital pharmacies for 20 years.  I have a great sense of humor & like to chat online & make new friends.
