I WILL BE IN THE HOSPITAL STARTING ON MARCH 5TH 2013
My colon will be removed surgically and I will be in the hospital for 10 days fallowing surgery
I will be taking a break from SWAPBOT. Please understand :)
Hi I'm Melissa and I was diagnosed with Crones disease in my early 20's. Only recently has this disease become de-habilitating to the point of not being able to work. After 3 surgeries during a 20+ hospital stay (that had me locked to a bed both Christmas and New years) I became very depressed and decided I didn't want to live this way - but instead of death I chose life - I chose to create - I chose to make the best of the time I have left on this planet in any and as many inspiring ways as possible. I am currently working on a book and in my free time (which is nearly all the time)!
I am new to this site as of October 2012 I love to swap my DECOS and Slams & Sticker bags!! I do DECO/SLAM/Sticker bag/ book swaps via snail mail with my own group I have created, consisting of about 40+ pals. This is just the place for a person like me! I am truly blessed to be a part of something so creative and great! Thank U and I cant wait to get started - I currently have a TON of small SWAP items I would like to get out but havent had any luck finding regional USA groups to get them going in.
Please remember I am new and a first-timer so please be patient with me :)
