Hi, my name is dody!
Hi, I'm a 64 year old woman with continuing physical disabilities following a ruptured cerebral aneurysm in 1970. Was also left with hydrocephalus following the same. Have now also developed arthritis of the spine, both feet (plus chronic plantar fasciitis of both feet) and arthritis of the shoulders. Other than that, I'm fine. As I've gotten older and lost both parents and my partner, I am feeling very alone with all this, despite trying to stay mobile and active when I can. I have two sisters who are very close with each other, not so much with me. Sorry, didn't mean to sound so sorry for myself. Considering the haemorrhage occurred when I was 16, I've been lucky to have survived and had a pretty good life everything considered. So many people are not so lucky.
