My Name is Victoria or commonly known as Vic

Hi, I have been lurking in the shadows for the past month or so getting a feel out for this blog before I posted on it, I am excited to say that I am part of this lovely and inspirational blog and I plan to post a little more frequently. I wanted to write up a little bio about myself before I got started with posting.

I have had Lyme disease since 2005 and it attacked my Central Nervous System, causing a seizure disorder and many cognitive problems. I home schooled myself for my Sophomore and Junior years of high school between many hospital stays and organized a Lyme disease Awareness walk this past year with a friend. This disease has taught me a lot about personal limits and knowing when enough is enough. I have been hospitalized a lot and learned quite a bit about the "real world". In April I am hoping to start driving again and hoping to be seizure free up until then. It will be a huge milestone for me as I hit my 18th birthday February 4th. So I look forward to posting here, I am 17, a Senior in High school and waiting to here back from colleges I applied to!

Happy New Year!
