My Journey with Fibrosing Mediastinitis
Things that Amuse Me
Here are ten random things about me:
I am a New Jersey native, but was raised in Cincinnati.
I am an Ohio State Buckeye Alumnus
I like to write. I have an obscene number of journals and blank books.
I am an introvert (INFP) and actually PREFER writing over speaking.
I have a condition called fibrosing mediastinitis (FM), a rare auto-immune disorder that causes calcified growths inside my chest cavity.
I have had a vast nursing career for 34 years. I've worked in intensive care, post-anesthesia care, emergency, and, of late, community health.
I began travelling as a nurse after I was diagnosed in 2000.
I met my spouse in California in 2001.
We were legally married in 2013.
I love taking road trips and exploring new things with my spouse.
I enjoy my pets, motorcycling, theater, journaling, and a variety of music, including alternative, reggae, blues, and rock.
