serene: fuck cancer (fuck cancer)
[personal profile] serene posting in [community profile] no_pity
Hi, all.

I'm Serene, and I've been coming to terms over the past five years with increasing disability in my life. I've got chronic pain that no doctor takes seriously so far (still shopping for one who will), and I've recently been dealing with surgeries, radiation treatments, and hormonal treatments for thyroid cancer. In our family, which includes six adults and a teenager, most of us deal with some disability or other, so I'm fortunate to have a family where I can talk about my frustrations and my little triumphs, and no one looks at me like I'm crazy.

I also work at UC Berkeley in the Disabled Students' Program office, so my day-to-day life involves doing my best to make things easier for university students with disabilities.

I'm transitioning over to DreamWidth, and won't be renewing my paid LJ membership, so I plan to be here for the duration. Glad to meet all of you.

Hello!!

It's a pleasure to meet you! Also, if you are easily earwormed, check out [community profile] earwormhole and share them with the world.

Incidentally you have earwormed us now. And a lot of us are fans of the Indigo Girls.

I believe you will enjoy DW. We definitely do :D

Welcome.
