I guess this is the box for me to tell you a wee bit about myself.... I guess I'll start with the basics. I grew up in a Mormon home, but I am currently studying theology and am content at the moment with a more Pagan outlook, as it doesn't raise any doubts inside of my heart that other religions have and it matches up with a lot of my personal beliefs. I don't care if you are Jewish, Christian, Pagan, Buddhist, or whatever, as long as you have care in your heart and are tolerant of others' beliefs, I will gladly be your friend.
I love animals and nature, and am big on helping others. I intend on graduating with a degree in veterinary science, as I feel I have a connection with creatures and I would also be helping those in need. I read, sing, and play clarinet to pass the time, and I write stories frequently. I love doing any type of art, as it's fun to just let go and express myself.
I have been struggling lately as two years ago I was diagnosed with idiopathic scoliosis, leading to me having to wear a boston back brace for 20 hours a day, every day along with the constant back pain. Now the thought of surgery has come around, and although I know it will greatly improve my life I still worry about the risks of my back being cut open to put rods in. Thankfully my friends have supported me and prayer has greatly improved my spirits. I will go with what life throws at me and make it the best time I can. Right now my focus is on other things, and I hope life continues to improve!
**UPDATE** Although my scoliosis is still pretty bad, the doctors have decided to take me out of my brace for a year to see how things go! I have so much happiness and praise flowing throughout me, and thanks to all who have supported me!
