About Me


My colon will be removed surgically and I will be in the hospital for 10 days fallowing surgery

I will be taking a break from SWAPBOT. Please understand :)

Hi I'm Melissa and I was diagnosed with Crones disease in my early 20's. Only recently has this disease become de-habilitating to the point of not being able to work. After 3 surgeries during a 20+ hospital stay (that had me locked to a bed both Christmas and New years) I became very depressed and decided I didn't want to live this way - but instead of death I chose life - I chose to create - I chose to make the best of the time I have left on this planet in any and as many inspiring ways as possible. I am currently working on a book and in my free time (which is nearly all the time)!

I am new to this site as of October 2012 I love to swap my DECOS and Slams & Sticker bags!! I do DECO/SLAM/Sticker bag/ book swaps via snail mail with my own group I have created, consisting of about 40+ pals. This is just the place for a person like me! I am truly blessed to be a part of something so creative and great! Thank U and I cant wait to get started - I currently have a TON of small SWAP items I would like to get out but havent had any luck finding regional USA groups to get them going in.

Please remember I am new and a first-timer so please be patient with me :)

Comment: I just got the card today! Marked sent Dec. 2, has a Feb. 20, 2013 postmark. I'm confused by the sticky about the surgery this March 5. So did you just now send this Christmas card almost 3 months late?

sorry Cfroggie - I did it as a move of admiration - I guess I should have asked. I see where it can be considered a bit weird. but u were spot on about that tape!

cfroggie on Oct 26, 2012:

Hi, Its a little weird that you copied stuff from my profile and posted it on your own.

alohabeauti99 on Oct 23, 2012:

Welcome to swap-bot! I would also put in you profile things you like and don't like so people know what to send to you!
