About me

Gender Female
Location Metro Detroit, Michigan, United States
Introduction I'm a 20-something year old living with Gastroparesis, Chronic Intestinal PseudoObsturction and Colonic inertia aka widespread GI dysmotility. its thought to be neurological in my case and i have a lot of different neuro issues also and basically some wonky ANS dysfunction and ever worsening neuropathy and numbness. im still a mystery case and on the severe end of it all. I'm TPN dependent and don't eat. Can't drive anymore with the neuro stuff. I'm on disability and on a journey to make the best of things. I love crafting and scrapbooking and fine arts. Living with chronic malnutrition and lots of chronic pain. But it is what it is. I wanted to start a blog a few years ago before things took a major turn for the worse so hence this account. Mostly I read blogs now instead but perhaps one day ill actually start blogging. We'll see... I'm a medical geek in general and love to read. Medical blogs. I'd have never even considered. Medicine as a career ( was studying politics and a Middle East Studies major before I got sick!) but now it's my passion, if I were healthier I'd love to get my BSN and become a kickass awesome RN, But it seems life has other plans for me, just not sure what.
