I am Barbara Denise Oldham, formerly Barbara Denise Jenkins. I was born on November 20th, 1963, in Chicago Illinois. I am 49 years old, but, who cares? Age is just a number, of course turn my age around, and that makes me 94!! Woo Hoo. Believe me, I do not act my age, never have. I may look older than dirt, but, I act like a kid, forever young. I love to sing, dance, write, blog, do sand art, make videos, play with my puppy coco, walk, read, praise the Lord, spend time with my little nephew, talk to my sister, pray, encourage others. I am 4ft9, weigh toooooooo much. I have no hair, but, I have a heart full of love, ready, and willing to share. I have lived in Scottsboro Alabama, Huntsville Alabama, Flintstone Georgia, and currently live in Chattanooga Tennessee. I have visited Indiana, Florida, and Ohio. I collect angels, dolphins, and of course, teddy bears. I am a type 1 diabetic, which has caused nerve damage in my hands, eyes, feet, legs, and stomach. I am legally blind. I have blockages in my heart. I have thyroid disease, and sleep apnea. I have had several mini strokes, and a bad stroke on labor day 2011. The stroke caused memory loss, some speech problems, and problems with my hands and legs. I still have a 100% blocked artery in the back of my brain. But, guess what?? I am still here!! Unfortunately, I do not have any children, due to infertility issues. Tried for 16 years to have a baby, but, in April 2000, had to have a total hysterectomy. I have one sister Vicky, she is 58. Two brothers, Charles(went to heaven in 2008 from diabetes, was 56) Jim, 55. My momma went to heaven in 2006 from a stroke, my dad is still living, 78. If momma were alive, she would now be 80. My husband is Eddie, he is 49. We have been married for 28 years. Since we have been married, have always lived in an apartment, except for the first seven years, we lived in a duplex. We have lived in this apartment since September 2000. My dream is to one day swim with the dolphins, would love that so very much.
