In an instant my world had changed,I went to bed dec 2009,not feeling well and woke up paralyzed. After a year-long round of hospital stays and tests,medicines etc. I was diagnosed with Transverse Myelitis. Also in that same year, one month after coming home from the hospital,my second husband died. They took away my driver’s license,due to the medicine I was on.Not to mention no use of one leg and little strength in the other i wasnt driving. They labeled me permanently disabled,and of I went into a whole new world.
Now a widow at the age of 45 again! My first husband committed suicide when I was 29. And no longer able to work, get around. I also was having trouble socializing.Most of the friends I had,were from work.They drifted away and the family of my late husband so on. I found myself looking at the four walls,watching tv and wanting with everything I had to die.
After my daughter’s wedding, I started to snap out of it a bit,and could get around with my walker, then I met Aerosmith,and life started going on the up swing.But I was still lonely. Men I would meet would run like roaches,as soon as they hear,disabled and widow twice. I felt cursed.
When I joined twitter, i had about 25 friends, and im so grateful for them,they started giving me a reason to get up. I even chatted with Ms.Bebe Buell, a classy rocker i think is a wonderful,role model on how to be still a rocker chick , be classy and a Mimi or (grandma). I then was given This Blog by the most wonderful young woman Miss Keith Mojica,she is now running her blog https://twitter.com/HarmonyIdealist. I have met some of the most wonderful people,all over the world.
Along with making my dream come true,writing. I love all the friends ive made and hope to make more. I Thank all of you for your Patience as I learn the ropes,and just chatting with me. As getting out is almost impossible. Thank you for making me laugh,sharing stories,welcoming into the community.
A lot of people bash social networks and they can have their down falls. I just wanted to say thank you ,and want to continue meeting people and making friends.
Thank you for helping me going back to loving life and wanting to become the spunky ,playful woman I was before hell broke loose.
