About My name is Debra. I am 59 (in a few weeks) and I am married. I have three grown children and three amazing grandchildren. I do arts and crafts and I am currently working on writing a screen play, or at least I'm attempting to. My motivation comes and goes with my confidence in my ability to write anything anyone else might be interested in reading. I have, in the past, been a bad diabetic and the disease has done some not-fun things to my body. I no longer see out of my left eye and, through neuropathy, I am losing my ability to walk and use my hands. I am, belatedly, trying to improve my circumstances by taking control. I seek to lose weight (Ive lost 13 pounds so far and this has allowed me to drastically reduce my insulin intake) and gain more strength in my body. Learning more about nutrition and exercises will help me, I believe, attain these goals. I also hope to make new friends. I enjoy a good sense of humor. Laughter is the best thing you can do for yourself.
