I was an RN for 35 years, though disabled after 20 when my body broke. I have a lot of interests- my schnauzer, making reborn dolls, gemstones and minerals, reading, nature and animals, and still trying to contribute something. I’ve had a history of eating disorders, leukemia, a 6 hour rape resulting in the offender being shot in my bedroom, and other less traumatic life-altering events. I was a figure skater as a child through my teens, and still love it even if my body won’t allow me to skate any longer. I am a Christian, who believes in compassion and the commandment to be kind and love others- there is no exclusionary clause. I don’t ‘do’ formal church, but my faith is important to me.
