First Blog- Meeting Carli

Hi, My name is Carli Lyn. I’m a 21 year-old college student at Maryville University. I am currently making big changes in my life and trying to decide what is the best major route for me (yes, as a junior , for the third time). Give me a break, I’m still young with almo
st 4/5ths of my life ahead of me. Trying to figure out what I want to do for the rest of my life is a huge stressor in my life and I want you to join me on this journey.

Now, the journey of changing my major isn’t going to be the focus of my blog, but that’s just a little background for you.

I’m going to focus on my disability, which is HUGE for me, considering I still ignore people who ask me about it.

When I was 5 and half years old I was diagnosed with a debilitating bone disease that intern has me growing a second skeleton. I have Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva¬†or FOP because otherwise, it’s a mouthful. Although this disease is a pain in the kabooty, I don’t let it effect my life any more than it needs too. I hate that the disease is the first thing people see about me- they don’t see the incredible young women I strive to be.

This blog is going be all about challenging your viewpoint and how I crush the stereotype you impose on me.

Hi, my name is Carli Lyn. I'm a little sassy & a little smart-assy. I'm a 25 year old grandma who loves to sleep, drink tea, & watch TV. I'm an avid (okay, crazy-obsessed) St. Louis Cardinals baseball fan. I am a crazy obsessed dog mom to my two little girls- Patience & Graci. I'm the pickiest eater you'll ever meet. The only healthy habit I have is drinking 8+ cups of water a day. I love Target. I love planners & pens. I love organization and anything HGTV. Oh also, I have a rare genetic bone condition- Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva &I have really cute little big toes.
