I've been lurking for a while and enjoying all the input from everyone, and I figured I should probably say hi before I start replying to posts. :)

I'm Fizz, I'm 24, and was diagnosed 2 years ago with a neuromuscular disease that everyone is somewhat confident (finally) is SMA. I've got a cool dog - in my avatar picture! - and cool wheels, and any typos are probably because I'm using my iPad to navigate, so if I have any weird autocorrects... well... blame Apple, it wasn't my fault! It used to change the name of my old town to tarantula. Every single time.

My chief interests are hockey (go Flyers!), criminal law, physics, art, and nutrition, and I hope to slowly make my way through college to become a registered dietitian, since I can do that from home even with my limited ability and it's something I'm super passionate about.

I'm super glad to have found you all and I'm looking forward to hanging out here (even more than I already do!)

Knowing is better than not knowing, at least in my case, because it took a looong time to be diagnosed and now I actually have access to all the resources I need to get by, you know? And you have indeed helped already, even - it's kind of nice to know that, even if this whole deck of cards is terrible and no one wants to have a hand in it, other people understand what you're going through and you aren't alone.
