Finding Her

About Me
I'm a 27 year old girl, facing life threatening problems. I have cystic fibrosis, liver cirrhosis, and diabetes. I'm currently trying to list for a double lung transplant and a liver transplant. This is a very rare operation, and has only been done less than 40 times in the United States. If I do list in Massachusetts, I'll be the first to have it done in Boston. Yikes!
Luckily, I'm blessed with a great support system, in the form of a very funny fiance, two of the best parents ever, and a fabulous sister. Not to mention supportive, funny, beautiful/handsome friends. I have two cats, that I talk about too much, Chloe and Izzy. And I often go on picture posting binges here.
I knit a lot, as I like to keep my hands busy. I have a soft spot for old musicals. I'm a Christmas FREAK. I love cats, and collect polar bears and sheep. I've become obsessed with the New England Patriots, and have found that football is definitely my sport of choice. I love shopping. I have a large collection of MAC cosmetics. I love living in New England, and the seasons changing.
DRAMA QUEENS. I can't stand people who bitch and moan about small problems, or problems that they create themselves. I get irritated pretty easily if all you talk about is your irritations, and never share your good days. I can't stand people who are manipulative. I abhor animal cruelty. If I could still be a vegetarian, I would be. I don't like judgemental people. I don't like that feeling you get when one side of your nose is completely blocked.
About Friending Me
Some of the stuff I write about is pretty heavy. I don't write about it very often, but I do sometimes. I'm not looking for pity, I'm looking for a place to vent. For the most part, even when I feel at my worst, I'm still feeling at the most, kind of blah. I've learned a lot about being positive, and just enjoying the happiness I do have, which is more than most people get. So, if you think you can handle the random boo hoo post, then please, by all means, friend me :)
