I love God, my family & my kitty, Luna! Being a Health Advocate, Mentoring, Blogging, graphics, ASL & freelance writing are what I enjoy doing. I used to be an Interpreter for the Deaf at a University hospital and magnet schools for Deaf children. I was injured in a MVA in 2002 and suffered a TBI, along with multiple injuries and surgeries. I'm H.H. with moderate (right ear) to Severe (left ear) hearing loss. But I enjoy doing ASL covers of songs on my YOUTUBE page . (http://www.youtube.com/ASLSuzyQ) . Helping others; that's where my heart is. I am very happy being an Ambassador for the U.S. Pain Foundation. I'm also a Chronic pain patient & have the opportunity to spread awareness and advocate for people like myself. I am a Mentor & guest blogger for RSDSA & RSDHOPE.org. Writing is a passion of mine as well as blogging. In 2016, I became a Author for Ntl. Pain Report, an online Health Magazine. My own Blog is called: "Tears Of Truth" on WordPress (at: Suzydukettes.wordpress.com). Photography, Gadgets & Technology are also my passions.Since 1999, I've been permanently disabled. Later on, s/p the MVA, I became lower vision & my hearing loss increased from mild/moderate to moderate/severe & I acquired 2 hearing aids in 2002. I also acquired several High Chronic Pain illnesses, such as: C.I.D., Gastroparesis, S.I.B.O., Gastritis, Autonomic Neuropathy,D.D.D., Chiari Malformation I,Dysautonomia/POTS, Polyneuropathy in Collagen Vascular Disease(EDS-4/Vascular),Prinzmetal Angina, Long QT syndrome & S.S.S.. I also have a pacemaker. My RSD/CRPS went "Full body/systemic, severe & disseminated" s/p a heart surgery in 2013.I'm a survivor! I use the pain to try and do good & I have gained knowledge from it. I'm Founder/admin. of several support groups for Chronic Pain, CRPS, Dysautonomia/POTS & Pacemakers online. One of the online groups is an International CRPS support group! Another group that I founded is "ASL Practice Express" on Facebook. To teach & share my love for ASL. I've been certified via the U.S. Pain Foundation, in July '17 to lead "in person" support groups for Chronic pain.On Google , I've formed a discussion group for Chronic Pain patients. It is called "Be Aware & Care". I'm a volunteer for "Chemo-angels", (a non-profit org. that supplies volunteer "angels" *(like me). I also am a Patient Leader for WEGO Health.
