There are quite a few new readers of my blog so I thought it might be useful to tell them a bit about myself.
I'm Irish and I'm married to an American. We currently reside in the United States where some of the best doctors in the world can be found and where the insurance company that should be paying for my husbands care is located. The Hubby has multiple injuries to his back and thus far has undergone three major surgeries. We anticipate that he will have two more surgeries this year.
Together for over 25 years, we have two children. Some of you who are on Facebook with me have come to know our daughter, The Spawn. We also have a son whom we adopted when he was 8 years old. Both of his parents were drug addicts and when his mother died, his father was unable to cope. No one wanted this little boy, so we took him in and have raised him as our own.
The last name O'Leary is my last name. I did not take the Hubby's name when we married because I refuse to give up my national identity. Although I have dual citizenship, I am and will always be, Irish.
What may not be apparent in my posts is that I am very lonely here and most of the time, very sad. The cost of living in the city is quite high so our home is located in a small rural town. Like many small towns around the world, these people do not take kindly to outsiders and they are not in the least bit shy about letting me know that. Cultural differences can be overcome. Hatred born from ignorance cannot. So we endure.
I hope this helps me get better acquainted with some of the new people I am following and who have been kind enough to follow me in return.
