Calling all Lim359 members! My name is Rich Moreno, and I’ve been an official member of Lim359 since last December. I am a writer by trade and am offering my services to our group. My goal is to write brief bios of Lim359 members for posting on the group’s blog.
Because I am so new to the group, I do not know many of my fellow members yet, though I’d like to. Do you feel the same way? If so, I invite you to introduce yourself by sharing your unique story with us here on this blog. What’s more, you can also learn more about other members by reading their stories. Adding your picture would be great, too!
The best thing about it? It’s easy! Just email your contact information to me at firstname.lastname@example.org so that we may set up a block of time to speak by phone. You choose what to tell me, and what picture you’d like to use, and I’ll take it from there. You’ll never need to leave your home/office and nothing we discuss will be posted without your approval first. Even better, there is no right or wrong way to do it!
To give you an idea of what I mean, I have posted my own bio below. So, without further adieu, here’s a little bit more about me:
Colorado has been my home for almost 25 years, nearly half my life. My own experience with limb loss began in August, 2012, when I was involved in an all-too-common bicycle/car accident; A distracted driver pulled his car out in front of me and completely surprised me. In the crash, I sustained nerve damage severe enough to cause complete and indefinite loss of use of my left arm.
After a little over two years with no progress, I’d had enough of dragging around the equivalent of a sack of potatoes from my injured shoulder. Further, it delayed my body’s healing process in general, so I decided to have the arm amputated at the elbow. Thankfully, I’d already had some time to physically adapt and to emotionally prepare for life with one arm; it made my transition considerably easier.
I am grateful for the new lease on life I’ve been given, and for the many people I’ve met and continue to meet along the way. This, of course, includes all the new friends I’ve made at Lim359, plus those I’ve yet to meet. From what I’ve seen, Lim359 members are in good company together. Hoping to hear from you soon!
