Wow....we are an interesting bunch of folks......

I think everyone has some type of disability of some type or another. Some deal with it better than others-we are all individual and what makes us Special.....If we were all the same it would be a pretty boring world-wouldn't you think...Being unique and special in our own way is what makes us who we are.

I broke my neck on a horse and had major medical issues that ended my medical career of 35 years.

It has been proven that fish keeping and pets in general can help those with disabilities....

Be proud of who and what you are-Embrace it, accept it, deal with it, beat it in some cases....but never give up......Life is what you make it.......

I'm on Disability because of my mental illness problems. Through the years of seeing psychiatrists and therapists I have been diagnosed with:
  • Specific Learning Disability
  • Major Depressive Disorder - taking Zoloft and Seroquel
  • Anxiety, no specific disorder diagnosed yet - taking Ativan
  • Adult Attention Deficit Disorder/ADD - taking Vyvanse
  • Insomnia, if I don't take a heavy duty med to make me tired I will not sleep a wink for days - taking Seroquel
Also I'm a self-harmer, but I haven't hurt myself purposely in almost a year. So that is good! Still cannot have anything sharp in the house though.

I have come a long way since my senior year mental breakdown (when it all started) that landed me in the mental hospital.
