- Hi there, I’m Elo! (No relation to the band E.L.O.) My full name is actually longer, but I go by Elo (rhymes with mellow and Jello), because it's much easier to pronounce and spell. Plus I like it.
I'm a dork. I love goofy humor, drawing, reading, baking (Caution: Does NOT mean I am good at it by any means), this forum, music, singing, and dorky MMO's (Though I’m not on any currently).
I value quiet, I think when you're really comfortable with a person, there are times when there's no need to speak.
I’m much more outgoing online than in person.
I babble when I'm nervous, the smallest things mean the most to me, and i'm quite possibly obsessed with cupcakes.
I got sick in November, 2010, and saw about 4 doctors and had multiple tests taken before being blandly diagnosed with an autoimmune disease / low level connective tissue disorder. Still awaiting a more specific diagnosis, of possible Lupus, MCTD, Sarcoidosis, Fibromyalgia, or a concoction of the few.
Due to minimal funds, and being caught with my pants down without insurance, I still haven’t been properly diagnosed. I’m hoping to remedy that soon – though it may take a while to even get to a specialist. One step at a time though, eh?
In the mean time, I’m just hanging out, bugging the forum goers, and taking it day by day. I’m unemployed – too sick to work, and living with my completely healthy (Thank Gad!) boyfriend, who is currently attending College.
That’s about all there is to it! You can follow me on twitter (yes, I caved and joined because of the Spoonie community) @ai_elo
Oh! My Avatar (since so many have asked about it) is an angel, with one black wing, and one white.

Sometimes I wonder if I'll ever get over being embarrassed while walking with a cane. I know I need to get over myself, but it's just, so... almost mortifying, really. Being seen at such a vulnerable point, when i'm in enough pain and sick enough that i have to use one. I just got back from the library and small grocery, and im still slightly nervous, even though i'm home safe now, away from the public's watchful eye. Today at the library, a man sitting in a chair next to the section i was looking
