Hello everyone, my name is Denise, also known in the blogging world as shortybear. I am 53 years young, and live in Chattanooga Tennessee with my husband of almost 31 years Eddie. Our wedding anniversary is right around the corner, on April 6th.We do not have any children, except for our fur baby, Coco.I tried for 16 years to get pregnant, but it was not meant to be, due to medical problems. I have type 1 diabetes, really bad. It has caused many
problems for me, such as nerve damage to my eyes, hands, legs, feet, and stomach. I had a stroke in 2011, a heart attack , and triple bypass in 2014. I attempted suicide in 2015. As you can see, I do not hold anything back on my blog. Why should I? There is no reason to sugar coat things. Life is what it is, filled with ups, and downs. I love the Lord, and thank Him for daily being with me, and putting up with me. I am just me, being me!!
