My name is Leah. I am a 53 year old wife and “plastic” mom. My dad has step-grandchildren and they call him”p-pop”. Stands for plastic pop since he is not their “real grandfather”. I am raising my nephew and that is why I refer to myself as his plastic mom. I am utterly and hopelessly dazed and confused when it comes to parenting. No kids of my own.
I became disabled at the age of 43 after back surgery that went wrong. I have Adhesive Arachnoiditis. Fancy name for scar tissue which happens to be wreaking havoc on my nerves. I have chronic pain from the mid back down. Most days I would like to cut my feet off because the pain is horrific. I have lost most of my friends since becoming disabled. I can’t do all of the things I used to do. I never know if it’s going to be a good day or a bad day until I wake up. Consequently, I end up backing out of plans on a pretty regular basis.
I love reading and writing. I used to love yard sales! Computers fascinate me. If I can get back into school, I would love to go into forensics. I want to live in Alaska – off the grid – kinda. I would like solar power and internet! Who am I kidding? Running water would be nice too.
Somewhere along the way I lost ” me”. I am in hopes of finding “me” through writing. I hope to meet people from all walks of life on here.
