"I've already overcome so much. From not being capable of anything to now tackling trips to the grocery store, baking in my kitchen, sitting at my computer to write, and playing my instruments. Whenever I get frustrated, I remember what Kathie and Glenn taught me: I can do anything I did before if I want to, with added caution and some changes."

"A program that has really helped me is the Peer Support Group in Portsmouth. I've met so many inspiring people and I find myself always saying; "If she can do it, so can I."
Today, I'm 33 and married to a wonderful man, Dan. I have lots to look forward to. I have to say that despite my many health challenges, I love the life I have right now!
