| Yes, the crazy one to the left is me. You've come to this page to learn stuff about me. My question to you is... why? Ah well! On we go!
Sooooooo basically, my name's Johnna, I'm sixteen years old and I live in Michigan. I enjoy singing, theatre, drawing, writing, collecting pictures, scrapbooking, fooling with Adobe Photoshop, and all around being goofy! "When I grow up" I want to be a surgeon, most likely specializing in endocrinology. My want to disect stuff often freaks out new people I meet, but honestly, I'm pretty decent.
I'm all around the average teenager. Until recently, I was on my high school's drill team, and I've just earned my letter! I hang out with friends, have a boyfriend of over two years, spend the majority of my time online, and I just got my liscence!
I however, lead a not so normal life as well. I'm sure you've guessed already, but just to get my own two cents in, I'll tell you anyway! I have Hypermobility Syndrome. I'm sure that's not a shocker. My chronic pain problems started when I was twelve years old. By age thirteen I had subluxated (partially dislocated) my shoulder. After that... it all went down hill.
| I'm in pain 24/7, 365 days a year. Many of my joints are loose, and joints such as my shoulders, knees, and hips often pop in and out of their sockets. I constantly crack my neck, which grosses friends out. My chronic pain has helped trigger Clinical Depression, which already runs in my family. To add onto it I also have Reactive Hypoglycemia. Ooooooooh fun things run in my gene pool! It could always be worse... that's what I tell myself. I also have Synesthesia... but that's not exactly a bad thing.
I made this website NOT to get pity or sympathy, but to get those who don't have this condition to understand it, and to contact others that have it.
I'm always up to meeting someone new, so if you want to contact me, my e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org, and my AIM screen name is CrossHerHeart08.
