I am hard person to explain, but I will do my best ... I am left handed (10% of the population, and my left arm is also hurt/weak/a general nightmare), an INFJ MBTI personality type (2% of the population), In 2010 I had an ATV tip over on top of me, I had a dissection of my thoracic aorta, collapsed my lung, and broke 7 bones but I somehow survived (no idea of any statistics on that!) I've had two vascular bypass surgeries (left subclavian to left carotid), a subsequent clot in my bypass, and to top it all off, in April 2018 I found out I had dissected/had a clot in my left vertebral artery. I have learned a ton about vascular anatomy, and am slowly getting to a tolerable pain level with the help of some amazing Doctors and other care providers at the AbilityLab, and Northwestern Memorial Hospital in Chicago.
I love the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Bears, traveling, doing yoga, music, my friends and family, and days that I wake up feeling “good.” Most of my titles are song titles, I stole that idea from Grey's Anatomy, big fan.
