Hi guys my name is Dawn fuller I'm new to the website . I was born with Spina Bifida Myelomeningocele. I am 49 years old. I have two wonderful nieces who I love dearly. They are my brother’s daughters .
I'm pretty well independent. I can do pretty much anything I set my mind to doing. I never let it get me down at all! The thing I hate the most or one of them , is the fact of the matter people love to tell me that I can't do something! Well if you know anything about people who have Spina Bifida, that's an absolute No-No with several of them I've met.
Growing up and going to school I felt lonely . I thought I was missing out on a lot that I would of loved to have had the chance to do . The kids that I went to school with didn’t seem to know how to be around someone in a wheelchair. There were some who did and we became the best of true friends. But, now that I look back at my past , I don’t think I would of missed that stuff as much as I thought I would of .
I still went to football games that we had when I was in high school just like everyone else. . I even got my high school class ring. The best part is , I graduated high school with a diploma!
I don't consider myself any different from anyone else. Why should I ? I just have to do some things a little different than others do. Like drive a car or use a ramp & wheelchair. But, big deal. I get it done. Lol.
In my free time , I sing in my choir at Christway church of God on Sunday mornings . My favorite song to sing at church is " Master of the wind ". I LOVE my life to the fullest. I also love spending time with my yorkie named Roxie. I also love spending my time with my family & friends. I bowl when I can . And of course , just like everyone, I do house chores when I need to .
