    Lanaia Lee here just wanted to say hi

    Discussion in 'New Member Introductions' started by lanaia74, Nov 18, 2006.

    Lanaia Lee is a 46-year-old stroke survivor that suffered a stroke at 35 due to high blood pressure. Her disease is called erratic hypertension. Ever since the stroke Lanaia has been in a wheelchair but she hasnt let that stop her one bit! In Lanaia own words "I still rock and roll, and I mean literally roll!" Lanaia has also lost six children due to her problem with blood pressure, leaving her with no living children, except for her 3 year old Jack Russell Terrier. He is her baby and constant companion. She has been married to a wonderful husband for ten years, who is also in a wheelchair, but they live totally independently and on their own. Although according to Lanaia, "This factor does make life interesting! But we face each challenge with the help of God." Her grandmother, a self-professed black witch, raised Lanaia after her mother died when she was eight years old. Why does Lanaia write such dark poetry? In Lanaia's words, "I guess being raised with the occult and supernatural explains why I have such a knack for dark poetry. Writing is one of the few things I can do that relaxes me. I will probably write for as long as I live because this is something that I really love to do. God gave me this literary gift, so why not use ?"

    Welcome to WF lanaia. You like the dark stuff as well huh? I like it! :cool:

    Can I be rude and ask why you refer to yourself in the third person?

    Hi Lanaia welcome. I really look forward to reading some of your work. I've heard loads about the different kinds of hypertension in the last 2 and a half years, since my mother was diagnosed with pulmonary hypertension.

    Guten Abend

    Welcome to this mystical universe of words and stuff.

    I know, 'stuff'... what can I say, I was born articulate.

    lol.

    Have a nice day. : D
