I have been trying to put myself out there on different social media sites in hopes of creating a group of followers (that's what publishers and literary agents want to see). I have joined Twitter, created my own Facebook page., started this website and most recently joined Happify. I have never been a techy person, but somehow I have managed to figure all these sites out!
Since joining Happify, just one week ago, I have had two of my posts selected for the "Featured" section and one of them was even in the #1 slot for "Popular" posts. I really hope that I can gain the following I need to land a literary agent. More than anything, I want others to hear my story so they can take a step back and really think about all the wonderful LITTLE things in life they have to be thankful for. Plus, I know deep in my heart that there are other children and adults out there trapped in their own body because they are misdiagnosed, like I was for 33 years! No one should have to live like that and I am determined to help spread the word as much as I can. .
After living the first 33 years of my life thinking I had Spastic Diplegia, a form of Cerebal Palsey, I was correctly diagnosed with Dopa Responsive Dystonia (DRD). I am on new medication and doing things that I never imagined possible. This has changed the lives of my husband and two daughters. I truly believe that I am living a miracle each and every day. Life can't get any better than this!
