Introduction I'm a middle-aged wife and mother of one *great* son. I have been active on the internet for many years. I have some serious real life health problems which prevent me from working. Therefore, much of my social interaction with those outside my family occur online. I survived a massive heart-attack, in which half my heart died, and triple by-pass surgery. I also have diabetes, degenerative disc disease, IBS, depression, anxiety and panic attacks, and leg and eye complications from the diabetes.
