My story

My name is Emilia-Paula, I am 48 years old and live in a small town in Romania. Little asthma has accompanied my life steps. The sleepless nights, the strong crises, the restrictions from the games and the pleasures of childhood did not overcome me, I grew up with my friend ASTM. At 23, I was married and a child, we were working and life was flowing with good and bad, more bad. At 45, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s, and two medical meningiomas were discovered after medical examinations (CT). After surgery, I was left with tumoral rest, terrible headaches, difficulty walking … But being a fighter, I’m going further. I hope that life will not give me any other unwanted gifts and let me live peacefully with my friends … ASTM, PARKINSON, DISC CARTRIDGES, CREATIVE AFFILIATES AND TUMORAL REST … This is my story … .
