The below is one of my first blog entries. It tells of my earlier life, and when I met Catherine.
As well as also delving into the health issues that have been one of my burdens in life. It was originally posted in 2017.
Hello, I am Kimberly, but please call me Kim. Here is a brief and edited background of my life so far:
I grew up in Southern NJ and Graduated from Vineland Sr. High class of 1977. (a clue about my age) Married, birthed 2 beautiful daughters, then divorced. I have had various jobs over the years, Mom, Retail Store Management, CDL class A OTR truck driver, Business Owner.
My daughters and I moved to the State of Pennsylvania in the early 1990's. Moved a few times; in and then out and back again of the Reading PA area (I love the hills).
Here (in Pennsylvania), I met Catherine 20+ years ago(updated), and we were legally married in Pennsylvania in November of 2015.
My health has pretty much always been an issue. I am legally disabled, and on SSD. In my 20's I started to have various back/spine issues. These issues were compounded by 3 automobile accidents (not my fault); I ended up with spinal stenosis and degenerative disc disease that is, I have been told both are inoperable. I am a Uterine Cancer Survivor in remission (14+ years), a stroke survivor, I have had treatment for a blood clot in my lung while continuing to deal with effects of Fibromyalgia, radiation and chemotherapy treatment side effects. These include neuropathic foot pain, memory loss & depression. My illnesses have been several but the main thing I overcame, was using a walker at two different times in the past 20 years(updated). I now occasionally use a cane for stability when needed.
In February 2019 Just before COVID spread I was stricken yet again by another surprise emergency hospital stay. Intensive care this time! This set me back quite a bit. To be honest I am still building my strength up. (Please skip to 2023)
