Don't mind you asking at all. I opened the door to that question by mentioning it
When i was born, i was born with Spinebifida.they didn't catch it because i was born with the version that doesnt have any overt signs. I wasn't diagnosed with it until i was 7. By the time they find it i now also have arachnoiditis.(Google it, im not afraid of spiders...) this resulted in 4 back surgeries and a scar along my back thats about 2-3 feet long.
also at birth i was born with a toxic kidney which was removed, and my other kidney is malformed and only 70% active. I am not a possible transplant receiver due to my pain meds. Also i was born with imperfered-anus and now have an illiostomy.(a lil bag on my stomach, i crap into it.) This is necesary because without it i wouldnt be able to go to the bathroom and die from not being able to do so. I've had surgery on this many times, probably 10-12.
when i was 6 i fell 3 feet off monkey bars and SHATTERED every bone in my arm up to my shoulder. I was in the hospital for a month and in an arm cast for 6 months and physical therapy for 1 year. Because of my Mom, they didnt amputate. They almost did, but she was adamant they at least try to save it. My surgeon cried when he took the cast off and i was able to move my hand through full range of motion. I have pictures of all this somewhere. I literally owe my mom my left arm i guess you could say.
Because of the arachnoiditis i suffer from severe chronic pain and take heavy doses of opiates for pain. I also have an intrathecal pain pumpimplanted in my stomach. Its a lilmachine that pumps meds to my spine to dull my back pain. Ive had one since i was 12 and im 21 now.
The pump allows me some level of relief and a life. I work at walmart part time, attend college part time, and try to date. That hasnt gone so well lol.
anyways thats the highlights of my medical exploits.
also, i should have mentioned this before.i was offering my services as a writer. I would offer art as well but i am wracked with tremors that make it immpossible to draw recognizable drawings lol.
