  • Re-Introduction

    Hi, Everyone. I'm Michelle and I've been on here for years, and been gone for a couple years now. I've gone through a divorce, broken heart, a major move, cancer, and now moving in with my boyfriend. I've moved back to KC, so I need to get in and change my name - again - back to Michelle in KC. I promise to be around often now. I've been diagnosed since 1998. I was misdiagnosed for many years before then. Since my diagnosis, I have also been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Degenerative Disc Disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Bladder Cancer, and .... dang... I'm forgetting something here. Sorry. My brain... Ugh. I'm 37, almost 38. Was in an abusive marriage for 18 years. Ive been raped and beaten too many times in those years to count and finally got the 'balls' to get out. My daughter, Emilee, graduated high school last May and stayed in Arkansas to attend Arkansas State University. She has gotten married and - I think - quit school. My son, Justin, is here in KC with me and not happy. Would rather be in Arkansas. I'm SO done with Arkansas. I'm pretty much an open book. Those of you who remember me will remember I don't sugar coat things. I'm just a real person like ya'll. I am on SS Disability and have been since 2003. Idk what else to put so ya'll just ask away.

    It's great to hear from you! I will fix your log on name if you will send me a private message so you'll know it's being done.

    How long have you been back in KC? It may take a while for Justin to get used to the change --- I hope he gets there soon.

    Warm hugs,
    Stay safe

        Hey Michelle, glad to see you back here!

        Wow, it sounds like you've been through a lot. I remember how you used to post about Justin's bull riding. He must be fearless!

        Welcome back!

          @Vicki: Yeah, he's pretty fearless. He's excited to get riding again. He is ordering new chaps and his new vest is on the way. Already got new helmet.
