My Bodies Broke But My Heads Held High!
My name is Alisha. I'm 30 years old and I was born with Spina Bifida Myelomenglocele.. I have Arnold Chiari Malformation and teathering of the spinal cord as a result of the Spina Bifida.. I am very much so amblitory and can get around the house very well but have trouble out at stores and things like that.. I self cath and have alot of pain more and more as i get older.. I had a rough childhood and school was very hard for me but I have come a long way since then.. Both of my parents passed away at a very young age.. my mother when i was 12 and my father when i was 15.. I only have the help of my sister now.. My parents were told i wouldn't live past a day or two so they just sewed up my back and told them to prepare for the worst.. Here i am 30 years later.. Even though my life is difficult I have nothing but high hopes.. I haven't had to have many surgeries, which i'm very thankful for.. I am definitely one to believe "what doesn't kill you, makes you stronger".. I have faith and trust in the lord that he won't put so much on me that i can't handle..
