I知 not much of a writer, but I値l do my best to introduce myself.

I知 a 38 year old man of Scandinavian and Native American descent who lives on the coast in Washington State.

I have a degree in Chemistry and Biology, but I知 unemployed, and living on disability.

I致e been a hard worker most of my life, but the combination of mental illness and a herniated disk have made employment difficult.

Nonetheless, I have not given up. I知 an artist. I have my work displayed in a gallery. and I知 trying to make a business out of my work.

I致e come to the conclusion the only way I知 going to be successful is by working for myself.

Despite my disabilities, I知 still goal oriented. There痴 always something to do. Currently my number one goal is losing weight and getting in shape.

In spite of the herniated disk, I知 able to surf, and surfing is extremely important to me. It痴 one reason why I知 trying so hard to lose weight and get in shape. After my last surgery I gained 60 pounds, and this has really affected my ability to surf.

I知 just trying to make the most out of life despite my challenges.

I'm working on being happy with what I can do, rather than sad for what I cannot do
