My case is very mild, but many people have life long pain. It is a genetic condition that causes tumors to grow on nerve endings.

Jessica 37 (38 in April), Pat 46 (47 in April)

2 kids, dd 10 1/2, ds 9 in May and 3 angels

1. I HATE condiments! All of them including salad dressings. I eat everything plain.
2. I wear my hair in a ponytail about 364 days a year because I feel like my face looks skinnier with my hair back.
3. I love rainbows and everything rainbow colors.
4. I love to be alone.
5. I love all things sparkly especially costume jewelry. I can wear a plain shirt and jeans and then jazz it up with an over-the-top piece of jewelry.

My favorite color is blue.

My favorite quote is "Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind." Dr. Seuss


No one knows that when I'm good at something and feel I've mastered it I quit. I was a ballerina for 12 years and when I was invited to study in Chicago I quit, and I played the viola and when I was asked to join a youth orchestra to tour Europe I quit. Yes I often wonder "what if"...
