Then at the age of 42, I fell off my crutches in the bathroom and broke my neck.
Many PhD's and MD's said I would be lucky to graduate from high school because of my physical and mental ability. At birth, as a premature new born, I did not get enough oxygen to my brain, causing my Cerebral Palsy.
But after years and years of hard work I earned my Masters of Arts Degree in Counseling Education and graduated with honors. Plus I had a three month Graduate School Internship, counseling residents in a 250 person nursing home, while all along using my crutches and leg braces to walk with.
Presently, I enjoy writing on my story and everything about the computer, which keeps my mind busy.
IBO has benefited me in numerous ways, IBO has opened my mind, eyes and heart in meeting people from around the world and makes my day a little better.
Everything comes fairly difficult for me but I try very, very hard to do everything, to the best of my ability.
