Welcome to BandAides and Blackboards

Thanks for visiting. I was getting lonely!

I can speak!

About The Contents

Welcome! This is a site about growing up with medical problems ...any ole type. Its goal is to help people understand what it's like, from the perspective of the children and teens who are doing just that. These kids have become experts at coping with problems that most of you have never heard of. They'd like you to know how they do it, and they hope that you'll be glad you came to visit. I've divided the contents into three ponds; one for kids, one for teens, and one for adults. Figure out which you are, and jump in!
The Frog Ponds
Go With Me...This is Abstract Art 

Dive right in
Teen Pond
The water's great
In case you don't like to dive into strange looking ponds, I'll take you to a site map.
We're almost there!

If you'd rather use frames instead, hop onto my back and we'll be on our way. 
I've been framed!
