I am in my late 30’s and living life now with as much freedom and excitement as possible. I am a Husband, Father, Firefighter, Paramedic and a Chiairan Zipperhead. I am proud to be all of these things. Don’t get me wrong I would skip the whole Chiarian part if I had a choice but I do not. Why am I proud of these things? So far i have been one of the fortunate ones that made it through this journey with only minimal problems, and the other things are self explanatory. I am very blessed to say the least. Some Chiarians don’t have the success that I have had.
Since decompression surgery on March 26th, 2009 I have returned to work and back to my Volunteer Fire Department. As of today, Feb. 2nd, 2011, I am 100% recovered and gettin back to being my old self. Don’t get me wrong I still have a few minor symptoms but I have developed life crutches to get through them and they are nowhere near what I was before surgery. This Blog is dedicated to all those with Chiari in hopes that I may spread the word about this affliction that we face. There are many people out there raising awareness and funds for research and I commend them for their efforts. I want to stop and say “Thank You to those folks and keep up the great work”.
So check out my Blog and see the rest of my journey. Take care and be safe.
