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 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".
Sharing helps to Heal. HUGS do too.

Injury Description, Date, extent, surgical intervention etc: I am ROBPI, global injury, Horner's Syndrome. No surgery but PT started at 2 weeks old under the direction of New York Hospital. I wore a brace 24/7 for the first 11 months of my life. I've never let my injury be used as an excuse not to do something. I've approach all things, in life, as a challenge. I approach anything new wondering if I can do it. I tried so many things I might never have tried, if I were not obpi. Being OBPI has made me strong, creative, more determined and persistent. I believe that being obpi has given me a very strong sense of humor and compassion for others.

I feel your pain! What ever the heck we got it was nasty. Peg and I keep whining...! Hey that backside pic of me up the tree is not so flattering so when you remove Peggy's you can take that one down too.......

Great pictures. It was great seeing you.

I could probably charge people for removing photos and make some money.

Can't wait till next camp!

Hi All!
I intended to get these up last weekend but I’ve been sick for 2 weeks now. Not fun but getting a little better every day.

There are 193 photos uploaded. They are ordered by date taken so you’ll find two groups of go-karts and two groups of zip-line.

You can order prints right from the website using Smugmug prices. If you want the digital original please e-mail me and I’ll send it to you. Just note the filename in your e-mail.

If I didn’t get your photo this year it just means you are required to attend in 2009. See you all in Florida!

Hope you enjoy! Feel free to leave comments on the photos too.
