Happy to be here.....

Hi there CS and friends out there,

This is not important to anyone but myself. However I just have the need to share this with someone: On Saturday is my 48th birthday No big deal to most of you, but for me it is. When I was born ( premature at 7 months) I was not expectedto live longer than 3 days..... and here I am at almost 48 years!

It has not been an easy life being disabled in a world made for ablebodies. I have made mistakes in life and I do have a few regrets but all in all I feel very blessed to have been given the chance to live life to the best of my ability.

I have been blessed with 2 wonderful daughters and I have a handful of very loyal and dear friends, who have always stood by me every uneven step of the way. There is nothing more I could ask for from life!

Thank you God for letting live my life..... I am truely blessed!

Hi Adult CP / Emma ! How lovely to exceed the estimates and by nearly half a century ! Thank you for sharing your joy with us ! I wonder how many of the original medical / nursing around when that prediction was made, are still around ? I'm sure all the good things in your life are truly richly deserved.

Your message made me cry! It's wonderful and inspiring. Makes me realise just what an awful cow I have been lately to just about everyone who knows me and for no reason at all.

Hi Em,

It is amazing how we look at things differently when we think of the positive in our lives. As I was saying previously, this seems to be a Wednesday for break-throughs, & I wish all the readers & posters the best in their own personal battles so that we each may become a little bit more happier & satisfied with our place in life like some many of you have done today.

You go girl!!!
