|A little about me:||I am a 61 y.o. female who suffered a TBI 9 years ago. I have balance issues, no short-term memory & swisscheese
brain. I was unable to continue to work as an RN which was my career and I loved it. I also suffer from Major depression, PTSD, and panic attacks. In the past 14 months I have developed COPD, Emphysema and CHF.I also have a paralyzed diaphram on the right side. I have had no injury to the phrenic nerve and so no reason can be found for the diaphragm no longer functioning. If I can keep from developing any other illnesses I may live another 4 years or I may only have a few months.I live with my daughter and her two little girls. The oldest, age 7, has been diagnosed as bi-polar, ADHD and dyslexic just two years ago. She is on medication and doing much better. The younger girl age 4 is showing the same signs as her older sister did at her age.She has the same ADHD and bi-polar diagnosis and recently began medication therapy.
My daughter had a double mastectomy just a few months ago and just had her last in a series of reconstruction surgeries last week. She is doing well and we feel blessed for that.
