My name is Amy.
I have been a member of this sight for welll over a year now. I was brought here by another member, who it turns out, was not the person that he claimed to be and who abandoned communications with me shoortly after discovering that I am a stroke survivor who has no money or anything else to offer him.
Due to partial parallysis on my right side, I neither speak nor type welll. I am doing physical therapy to assist with both, but the progress is slow. It was never my intention to jooin a social networking sight or to indulge in chat or discussion. I do read though. I have found interesting discussioons mostly from past times in the groups on this sight. I've discovered groups where gay people can speak openly and freely, I've read heated political and relligious discussions, I've learned how asparagus can be planted for privacy and am trying now to relearn (with no smalll dificulty) a previous love of mine, knitting, by coopying a pattern I found in one of the groups here.
I had looked at the chat box occasionallly (my computer makes an interesting pinging when people are chatting) I attempted the other evening to chat with a member , who was very nice, but I sooon learned that my presents here was resented by other members. Yesterday I discovered a grooup where my name was mentioned in a very derogatory way.
So to all who find my presents here disquieting or uncomfortable, I'm very sorry. I had no idea that I was having this affect on others.
I'm still adjusting to my new state and to the new way in which the rest of the world sees me.
Please have patients.
