More About Me

What I want you to know about me...

I am a pretty normal girl, but what is normal really? I am a girl that will tell you like it is, so do not piss me off! I am waiting for the right person to come into my life, someone that will make Misty happy and who knows what more will happen! This girl really loves red and pink roses...Why who knows...They are so pretty! I love life and I make the most of it! My name is Misty but, my friends call me MD. I am 28 years old. I am from a little town called Maple Lake in the great state of Minnesota, My home town is a place that is very loving and I miss that little place a lot! I was born with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and I have significant lower extremity weakness and atrophy with plasticity requiring bilateral ankle AFOs and a walker for ambulation. I also use a wheelchair for mobility. Spastic Cerebral Palsy is defined as "A form of cerebral palsy that causes tightness in the muscles. Because of this tightness, spastic cerebral palsy patients have a difficult time controlling their movement. Their motions may be abrupt and jerky. I have felt that having this disability has been a learning experience and every day is a new challenge. Despite this being a challenge, I am still very active. I have a background in Child and Adult Care and Education from St. Cloud Technical College. And yes, I am Ms. Wheelchair Minnesota 2004 for the great state of Minnesota!! :0)

What lies behind us, and what lies before us, are tiny matters compared to what lies within us.''

Life is a journey and the end of one part is always the beginning of another.

''Trust yourself. Create the kind of self that you will be happy to live with all your life. Make the most of yourself by fanning the tiny, inner sparks of possibility into flames of achievement.''

''I think that somehow, we learn who we really are and then live with that decision''

Life is the art of drawing sufficient conclusions from insufficient premises.
