Hi, I'm SunflowerValley and I am disabled. I only have the use of one arm. My legs and right arm doesn't really move. I don't know why I can't walk but it started when I had a bone marrow transplant. About a year or two after I had a seizure and I woke up in hospital and can only move my eyes. I gained strength and movement a bit but mostly only in my left arm and hand. I have scoliosis and have had surgery to have a metal rod in a few years back. I also had cancer but thankfully it only needed removing. I had type 2 diabetes but reversed it and I suffer with many problems. This includes a lot of pain and mental struggles. Iv'e had many other problems but there is too many to discuss. 🙂

    Hello @SunflowerValley

    I've enjoyed reading your posts so far

    You seem so cheery for someone who has had so many issues, I thought maybe it would have been easier if you had listed what you haven't gone through

    I hope you stick around and to see more of you on here 😊

    Hello @66Mustang , Thank you. I have been enjoying talking to everyone. It is nice to have been able to talk to people. It is hard to be happy sometimes but I have been trying to not let it stop me from living. Recently I have been struggling though which is why I thought I would try talking to people here. That was probably the easiest idea to put it. 😂 Definitely, I would love to. I am also here if you need to talk too. 😊

    Thank you, I enjoy talking to everyone too. Sometimes I find it hard to join in. Thank you, it has actually. It feels good to talk about it, especially when it isn't to your family. I feel disconnected from my family, I barely see anyone apart from my parents and my little sister. And I still sometimes feel alone. You take care too, and I'm here if you need to talk too. 😊
