Self Portrait&5 Random Facts About Me

Hello everyone, my name is Denise Oldham. I am 52 years old, and live in Chattanooga Tennessee with my husband of 31 years, Eddie, and my precious fur baby Coco. I love the Lord, my family, and my friends with all of my heart. My hobbies include: Singing, Writing on my blog, Journaling, Bible Studies, Doing Devotions. I am not physically able to work , so I am a stay at home wife. Tried for 16 years to conceive, but due to health problems, my dream was not able to become a reality. I have very out of control type 1 diabetes, that has really wrecked my body. I have had a stroke, heart attack, triple bypass, have neuropathy in my legs, feet, hands, and stomach. Have vision problems, and thyroid problems. Attempted suicide in 2015. But, praise God, it was not my time to go!! I am just trying to be the best me, I can be. Thanks for visiting my blog, bless you, always.
Five random things about me: I am an attempted abortion, My appendix is in my back, I am legally blind, I am the youngest of  four, I lost my hair, due to thyroid problems.

  2. You're a survivor!

    Have you ever told the story of your birth and your mom's decision?

  3. My Aunt Mary lost her hair, and I am not sure what caused it. Strange but each time she got pregnant, her hair grew and it was an auburn color. When the baby was born, her hair all fell out until the next pregnancy. Sorry you were not able to have children, and I understand your pain. Thank you for your visit to my recent post.
