At this point I only have a few memories, but around my 3rd birthday we moved to California near San Francisco, we left when I was five. I remember wearing sweaters and eating walnuts from our tree in the front yard. I do remember almost chocking. This one is interesting. My sister and I used to play with ropes. One of my friends showed me how to tie a noose. Remember we were only four at the time. I tried it out and of course we couldn't get it off. Dad finally loosened it, and we were banned from playing with the neighbor girl and the rope. I am sure I screamed. I suppose that is why I still hate to wear anything around my throat.
I didn't leave home until I was in my early twenties. Also I was the eldest child of nine children. I know a lot about taking care of babies. I tried to go to college, but never made enough money to finish the job. I did go on a mission to South Africa, where I met some great people. But, what finally changed my entire life is when I joined the Navy at twenty-seven years old.
The US Navy gave me a job (electronics), a chance at travel (Japan, Panama), and a husband. We have been married now for eighteen years. The Navy also gave me the money to finish my college education by getting a BA in English.
Sierra Sage tells about my journey with a chronic illness. Plus it has a lot of information I have gathered about the disease, medications, and supplement.
Currently I am writing and editing and writing. You can find my ebooks at Amazon Kindle and Smashwords.
Check it out. As for now, I am in fairly good health for a person who has a chronic illness. I am isolated from every day contact with most people. Some folks would think I was a germaphobe if they never knew my story. I have had to learn how to be that way.
Glad to meet you. Come by and visit anytime, you hear.
