About Me: 

I am a married woman with 2 sons who has been working most of my life. I am now on long-term disability due to major surgery back in 2006, due to side effects. Both of my boys are 20 and 21 and still at home attempting to save money, (having a little trouble). I have always been the type of person that was always shy and did what other people said (a follower). I am now changing my lifestyle, with the help of a few people, to take control of my life and become more independent and to stand on my feet and not to let anyone push me around (male or female). I am also getting out more and not staying around the house as much ----- my family doesn't need me there to clean up after them, they are quite capable, even though they don'tclean!!!! (the boys that is)!

It's almost as if after my brain surgery something clicked and I woke up and I became this different person, and there was a lot of anger in that person, and it just started from there!!! It wasn't just about the present, it was about my whole life in general. After I started talking to people I started seeing and taking a different perspective of everything.

That is a little bit about me and where it all starts from!!

My Passions: 
Reaching out to people in need, loving & caring for people
My Challenges: 
my shyness & my anxiety holds me back
My Vision for the Future: 
For everyone to be able to get along in the world regardless of race or religion. I would love to see everyone come together in love.
