Just me!

My life can be complicated. I'm a single mom rapidly appraoching my 50's (ugh!) but feel like I'm much younger. I have one grown son who is almost 21 years old and was a student at UF, but due to his disease (Duchenne Muscular dystrophy) and the illness rapidly taking away alot of his abilities to do things I've been his 24/7 caregiver. He will be on a ventilator soon.

I'm also the Executive Director for the Stonecave Homecoming Association- its an Alumni Association for 4 High schools that have closed down but we still get together for reunions. This year we are raising funds by selling our famous cookbook of healthy vegetarian cooking.

I'm also the co-founder of Aikido Meadows - A Community of Women for Women ( A community of support & hope). ITs not like Gainesville mom's it s a site for peer support for women who have been through domestic violence, but also those who may have Biopolar, Anxiety, PTSD, Depressioin, etc...etc...etc...We do have a (ning) peer online support group and about ready to start a "Live" support group in the community.

I remember when Gainesville Mom's started and when Suzy was here and many more. I think this is a wonderful site...and enjoy the company of the many mom's I've met here. Keeps me young!

I enjoy being online (internet) and being involve with what I can in the community. I have a goal to work with the Homeless. It reminds me to much of Matthew 25- and the song ..."What if God was one of us" do unto others as you would do until good. We never know when God is in our presnece!

I have enjoyed biking, hiking, camping...I do enjoy art, photography, writing, scrapbooking, music and more. What I would love to do when I can get a decent makeover is to start dating again. First I must change my outside (as much as my inside) to be acceptable (in my opinion).

I hope with us being at this new site we can start getting to know each other much better and have much more fun!!

My profile picture is of me and my son when he was about 5 days old in 1989.

Safe hugz!

God is taking care of it

Yes...its true!! I finally did it! I took my son's dad to court for continuation of the child support and yesterday they tried to serve him and I got that nasty phone call that now he is threatening me that if I don't take it back i will loose the life insurance, etc..etc..etc...

The thing is he knew we won in 2007 but we suspended it because of Tim's SSI & Medicaid and of course he promised he would pay me something every month and yet this man has not kept his part of…

The "Final" Day

So I was all set for my surgery that was suppose to come up this Wednesday. As they say ...I was about ready to loose my "womenhood"....that curse God placed on Women when Eve ate that apple...the period. Which comes to question why its even called that. I thought that journey was coming to an end of this road. Part of me was sort of excited inspite the risk of the sugery. While the other part of me was dreading it cuz that meant there would be changes in my body and I hate changes! Despise…

Pain in the butt!

Well I thought I survived the 7 days in the hospital and it surely was nice to get home, have a pizza, watch my own tv shows, sleep on my own bed ....until today things turned around . I'm being told that I need to go back to the hospital only I can't find any one to stay with Tim for tonight. Have it for the other days and nites but not for tonight and I just cant leave him!

so I sit here suffereing waiting to hear from another agency to see what happens and agonizing while I…

The need for Normancy

It's not an easy road ...most times it has been a rough and bumpy road. Not just my son who has a terminal illness but also having to deal with my own illnesses. Tonight I found out that it is mandatory I go into the hospital. I have neglected my own health for the sake of making sure that Tim is taking care of. Now I am suffering from possible kidney failure, pancreatis and God only knows what else.

A friend found me in my car today passed out. ... unable to respond. After…
