Happily married for 30 years to an amazing man. Mom of three grown kids and "Gamma" to one. In spite of being ill for so many years, I am a happy person who loves life and tries to make the most of each day. I have had FMS for over 20 yrs., also CFS, RLS, DDD, and IBS. Anything with initials, lol! My faith in God gets me through each day. I am on disability, but miss working. I read a lot, watch too much TV, and play on the internet. I love traveling, my dogs, spending time with my family, swimming, boating, camping, and volunteering.
I think laughter is great medicine so I try to make people laugh at least once a day! Or I watch something funny on TV so I can laugh. I live in North Texas where the weather changes as fast as a woman changes her mind. We have it all, believe it or not. Rain, wind, terrific thunderstorms, tornadoes, heat (lots of humidity too in case the heat isn't bad enough), cold, ice storms, and even snow! The humidity kills me. I literally wilt like a flower. Unfortunately we have humidity almost 365 days a year. Why do I live here, you might ask? Because it's home. I have lived in Texas most of my life, being born in Nashville, and moved to TX at the ripe age of 18 mo. So I consider myself a "native". I do wish for a summer home in CO. or somewhere it gets below 85 degrees in the summer.
I believe strongly in helping others. I think when I am doing that, I forget how bad I hurt. I despise child abusers, actually any abuser of any kind. I am a survivor of childhood abuse. I dislike rude people, traffic, and people who get in the "express" lane with too many items (Can't people read these days?) and hypocrites/phony people.
