Injury Description, Date, extent, surgical intervention etc: LOBPI. I am 77 yrs old and never had a name for my injuries until 2004 when I found UBPN at age 66.

My injuries are: LOBPI on upper body and Cerebrael Palsy on the lower left extremities. The only intervention I've had is a tendon transplant from my left leg to my left foot to enable flexing t age 24 in 1962. Before that, my foot would freeze without notice on the side when wearing heels AND I always did wear them at work "to fit in" I also stuttered until around age 18-19...just outgrew it...no therapy for it. Also suffered from very very low self esteem; severe Depression and Anxiety attacks started at menopause. I stuffed emotions and over-compensated in every thing I did to "fit in" and be "invisible". My injuries were Never addressed or talked about until age 66. I am a late bloomer!!!!!

I welcome any and all questions about "My Journey".

What time works for you jmar? Currently I have been thinking every two weeks starting at 5:30pm PST, day is flexible but Wednesday seems to work for most people. Date and time is flexible though and I'm open to hearing what works for you.

And Carolyn, oops! You will make it one of these days ;)

Hi Jen:

I'll be on a chat sometime in the near future.

Hey folks, OBPI affects roughly 12,000 babies each year! Feeling frustrated? Try chatting with people that live everyday with similar issues. This is a great opportunity for information to be exchanged and meeting new friends.
