About Bawashom
Joined July 2017
The reason I joined WA is I need a way to make my daughter's life easier and happy.
She had a very bad cold which wouldn't go away. She is just 58 and the virus settled in her spine leaving her nerve endings stripped and her completely paralyzed. My heart breaks each time I see her struggle to just get through a day.

A tornado took my job of 35 years. No one wants to hire an 84 year old receptionest secretary. I also lost my husband during this time with Alzheimer's. His disease wiped us out of both our homes and left me just on social security. Needless to say not enough to care for her needs. She only gets a pitiful amount on disability.

We have been living together since the tornado sharing expenses. That leaves nothing for the therapy she needs which cost $45 a treatment to try to get her on her feet a little. She requires at least five a week. She never complains even tho she has been left in terrible pain in her hands which are knarled like a stroke victim.
I have been trying so long to find a way to ease her daily life. We have no car as neither can drive so rely on taxi twice a month to Wal-Mart for supplies and groceries. I want to be able to put her in a cab for intense therapy and be able to buy equipment to use daily. She will never walk again unassisted but maybe get her out of that wheelchair a little. Oh yes , they never found a virus that matched hers so the named it Debbie's Virus.

I know that was a lot to spout about but I am her Mother and not getting any younger so need to find good income I have spent my adult life working. I raised three children and lost my high school Sweet after 32 years in an accident. I was 50 and working at a job with people taking me under their wing. I worked at a skating rink for 35 years until the tornado.

I had many hats. I was a confidential secretary. I was an office manager. My boss dipped into many ventures in that time. I learned how to drill oil Wells in Kansas. I was an apartment manager for 32 apartments in Kansas. I lived in Joplin MO. I kept complete books and payroll on 5 skating rinks I kept books and payroll on 3 hydroponic greenhouses. I promoted all of the PTO skating parties for Joplin and area. Designing and printing posters ,free passes etc in color for. Each school and each month. I also set him up on daily stock market deals and made him a bunch of money. A lot of these jobs ended and another took their place but believe me he got his monies worth every day and I loved going to work every day.

I am like a fish out of water without a job. I took up knitting to pass time. I made dozens of pretty things. Debbie and I took up making jewlery. I have a lot of beautiful pieces. We also are painting . I took classes for years and now I'm teaching her. She's doing wonderful!

After 20 years of being a widow I met a wonderful man in August and we married in November. We had three wonderful years and the Alzheimer's crept into our life. We fought it three years. I still worked full time and cared for him at night. I refused to put him in nursing home as long as he knew me and his family. That choice was not mine as the dear sweet man became violent and early one night hit my son who was helping me shower him with a meat cleaver. He had to get stitches. So into the nursing home and loss of his social security check which went for his care. Of course my income and social didn't get job done and we lost both our homes. The day he died I got a letter lowering his cost with Medicade from $1600 a month to $325 a month. Too little too late.

I love to keep busy and accomplish something each day. My dear Mother was a teacher and raised me all thru grade school and high school with. LEARN A NEW WORD. LEARN THE MEANING. LEARN TO USE IN A SENTANCE AND HOW TO SPELL IT. MY first husband while we were dating in high school said he needed a dictionary to talk to me. I'm proud of that!

Between my two husbands and I we have helped raise the population by 73 grandchildren and great grandchildren. We had 7 children between us. Christmas was hard as Gale wanted to buy for all of them. We did it plus all birthdays.

My goals are as stated. Give my little girl some ease in her life. That is all I think of when I see her struggle to get up or hold her hands high above her head hoping they would ease a little in pain.

I really don't want to have to do this,but I must take a short time away from all you wonderful friends. I have had so many of you keeping my eye on my goal and helping me in any way needed. This is indeed a great community.
The living conditions of our home have become uninhabitable since the flood in April. Our landlord did nothing to help clean up except give Jim $100 to clean three bedrooms two baths living room kitchen and dining room. Not to mention all lower cabinets. Our hardwood floors became unsealed and the floor is caving in. Thus we have a danger to Deb in her wheelchair and the black mold. Every kind of bug has invaded us. We set foggers off twice only making the bugs aggressive. I haven't had a peaceful night sleep since April.
Finding a place is proving difficult because of no car and pet policies. Places we can afford and allow pets are either worse than here or way too much. When you have to come up with rent plus deposit plus deposit for pets it's pretty slim pickins I gave landlord notice and to get our deposit back we have to get our by the 3 rd. Let me tell you it's much harder packing this time since last December when we moved here. I'm feeling my age more every day. This stress is hard on Deb. She broke her hand the other day trying to walk into her daughter's for a visit with adorable twin identical twin girls. Now she can't hold them safely. These wonderful Dr' s have no feelings. They won't have opening to set and cast her hand until Oct 4. She's not supposed to use her hand but how is she supposed to get up or any other thing she as a paralyzed person has to do. I told them that but unless a cancellation she has to wait and bear the pain. Since when did the emergency rooms not apply cast? Everything has to be specialized.
Well enough of my problems. Seems if I start telling something I can't find stopping place. I will try to keep working on my site as I get time but I am doing my chores as well as Deb's. Poor Jim has his work cut out for him as she is much more dependent on him.
I shall return as soon as possible and you will be missed. I have saved every post and question so you will still be helping me.
Love to all Billie and Debbie

Again. Thank you for your blessing. It's 5:25 am and I'm still up
We are going to spend the four hours from 8 to noon on deck with our five dogs to set off bomb again. The flood early summer left us fighting bugs. You name them. The last bomb made the roaches aggressive. Here's hoping we get them this time. We were also burdened with mice. Our land lord is of no help. Our beautiful hardwood floors lost all their sealing so it's like living on bare ground. Trying to find another place that's good for Debbie that we can afford is iffy. Cross your fingers and toes we are successful at this at least

Sorry to hear that you have had so many challenges coming at you. God has brought me through a lot and I believe that He can get others through their storms too. After those storms, you'll find that you have a lot of people you can help in similar situations, as well as a lot to blog about as a result of all that you've been through.

I feel like I've got a big hug from your note. Thank you for the caring words my little (58 yrs) girl is the strong one. We just became proud grandparents to identical twin baby girls. I can't tell them apart except Mya weighs less than Mia by a !b. They live about six blocks away and my daughter goes to help mommie out each day while daddy's at work. She goes by her mode of operation. Wheelchair. She won't let anything stop her. I'm so proud of her again. Thank you for your kindness

Hi Billie I have Amazon account but I am still checking out some of the issue so not too sure on the strip your mentioned. I know Amazon has this ads that stand at the bottom of the screen. I think you have to log into Amazon to look for the code.

I read your site again And notice that you have put up a menu but nothing yet. Your privacy policy should be on the page up with menu not mixed with blog post in category. Also there is not content on your privacy policy. Please check again.

Will see how and where to find the strip code and get back to you.

Hi Billie, thanks for following me and I felt honored to be your friend in WA. I feel what you have endured, my youngest son was having a sport accident last year and was hospitalized for more than a month and has difficult to move his legs. Juggling between caring for him and work was a big challenge. He has since fully recovered. Compare to your situation , mine is just a storm in a tea cup.

Your story will serve as an inspiration to people who may have similar situation but do nothing to improve it.

Can I have your permission to share your story for my readers and also participants as I do training for NGO youth and also my sales team.

Have you set up your website? I tried to find one but not mentioned in any of your blog here?

Thank you for your caring words. Of course you may share. My daughter is the really strong one. I admire her outlook. She still insist on taking care of me which she really does. I am unable to be on my feet very long because of arthritis in my back! And knees. She has a motor to use to serve me my supper which she fixes most of the time because of this. I love her to pieces. Years ago this young lady quit an assistant manager job to care for her grandmother while I was working. No one could have had better loving care than my mother. She is an angel God gave me.

Hello Billie and welcome to Wealthy Affiliate.
Since you joined and with your previous experience you will perhaps have come to the conclusion that internet marketing can be a steep learning curve.
If you do get stuck on anything then can I suggest you browse some of the 300+ blogs I have published within WA.
Rather a long profile and I'm thinking you needed to write it but Billie this would have made a great About Me page on your website.
This would be especially so if you found a niche that would be relevant to your life experiences.
Worth thinking about is it not?
You have decided to follow me and I will follow you as well.
Enjoy your day.

Reply
Robert-A Premium
Billie there is no set number so no limit.
I have been here 4 years and with two WA Sites I have well over a thousand posts between them.
Just keep adding to your site as and when there's a need. For example when you add a new product or service or you want to attract customers with a freebie.
It all depends on your Niche and the products within that Niche.

Hope you're having a good one over there in Missouri.

We're having a great couple of weeks.. usually it's hot(100-105) muggy and did I say hot. We've enjoyed pleanty of rain and temps in 80's. I remember growing up we had hot weather when school started. Called Indian Summer. We should have a beautiful faIl if rains continue.. Being an artist I love the fall colors. My favorite to paint. How is the weather in Scotland?
Have a great week ahead

I'm fine Billie and the weather in Scotland is gie dreich.
As a lover of words you might like to read this article.

I was quite good and at High School my art teacher wanted me to go to Art School but as we were a big family my father wanted me to work and bring in a wage.

I personally haven't picked up a paint brush in at least 30 years.
I was quite good especially portraits.

You have a great week as well.

Now I'm off out into this dreich weather lol.
Take care.

Please don't waste your talent. My mother didn't start painting again until she wasted so many years. She was so talented. I have some talent but I work at it .

I don't want to paint now Billie.
I concentrate on my writing and been doing that ever since I learnt how to.
My family do tell me I should write our life story as I'm the one they come to when they want to know anything.
Mainly because I've been blessed with a great memory.
I also have 100's of articles saved in folders so i will never run out of material to put on my websites.

You be lucky as well and have a good week.

You take care.

What would it cost to get my site done. Frankly I'm about to quit. It's been too many years out of school and too many people right on top of me so to speak and a 22 month old hellion running up and down the hall. My place in this good forbidden trailer is living room. And that's where TV is . I have no place to be by myself. I think if I saw my site made I could figure out how to make others. I probably couldn't afford that anyway. Just wondered.

However sweet you are. I know every mother feels for their child. She is 57 and I have loved here since she came into this world. Two months early and a 3 lb joy. I never touched her or held her until she weighed 5 lbs. Six weeks old and brought her home in a doll dress. I guess that had a part of my feelings. They don't run nurseries that way today. My great grandma baby identical twins born week ago and weighing 4 lbs and 3 lbs went home today. I pray not too soon. Each time I see Debbie struggle with anything I find a way to make next time easier. She's my baby still. This virus took her life from her. I resend it so much.

Hi. MIKE
S sorry to hear of your trial. Hope you continue to heal. I can't believe my active happy daughter struck down by a cold virus and what's scarier they could find none like it. That's why they named it Debbie's virus. Can you imagine going through one spinal tap but three!! My stepdaughter had same thing only it settled in her heart causing death of 60% of her heart. How that changed their lives. I wont let anyone in the house if I detect a sniffle. Be cautious as your imune system is still out of balance. Good luck and God bless you

Hi Billie,
What a story, I'm so impressed you are working to do something to make things better. Also feeling blessed as I had a 5 month long cold this winter. It put me in the hospital with massive vertigo finally when it got in my inner ear. Still don't have balance back all the way. Now I'm feeling like I was lucky.
I wish you all the best and will pray for you. WA could be a very good place for you and I sure hope it works out.
If I can do anything to help please don't hesitate to ask.

Hang in there and keep in the training here. It will help you build a future for you and your daughter if you keep with it. Just take it a step at a time. Each step in your journey counts.

Try to rest. You can't work and focus when you're tired and weary. You have lots of new friends here who care about you and wish to help.

Will be following you.

I have to share my last 24 hours.
I stayed up all night writing a page all about me. I had edited it twice and saved it. I was going thru my gallery for an appropriate picture and I could never find it again.
Everyone thinks I didn't save it. I know how to save. I've used computers in my one of work many years. I've written programs in the beginning when it was basic not machine language.

I decided to get some sleep. When I woke up I had no emails. Even the messages for help were not answered. Maybe everyone was sleeping in. Of course not! I found all my today's In SPAM.

FORGIVE ME IF I DON'T RESPOND. they may be somewhere else. There were 134 of my emails put into spam

I will pray for you and your daughter! Good day.

You are so right. If I didn't have my strong faith I could have collapsed. I think I found that faith when Debbie a cute three year old had a river rock in her mouth of course I didn't know it. She started to tell her brother. When she said look ste ....she swallowed the rock. She immediately started turning blue. Jim and I rushed her to hospital where they had to remove it as it was too large to pass. During surgery Dr decided to remove her appendix as it was much too large. He said it would cause her trouble in her teens. We sat by her bedside for hours. The nurse seeing she was in so much pain gave her an over dose of morphine She started turning blue again. I felt helpless but her daddy went up and down halls until he found oxygen. The nurse did nothing. She was crying and nervous. My child was dying so I put my big girl pants on and prayed for His help. Immediately the Dr rushed in the room and gave her a shot of adrinilian in her heart. She started breathing right and soon was concious. I know my faith and her Daddy's strength brought the Dr there in time. This child was so special to me of course being a girl after two boys but she came into the world at 7 months at 3 lbs. She is reason I'm here and reason I will succeed
Forgive the ramble. When I think of my (58 yr old ) little girl I get things off my chest

Thanks for some more of the story, have you thought of writing a book on your trials and faith - it would help many other people and it would give them hope and faith too! You can do it very inexpensively or publish it yourself as added bonus to those that join with you in WA - the choice is yours.

Thanks - I think many would enjoy reading her story. If you were talking to me about my words - my writing needs work but my speaking is much better, than my writing. - Good Day. All I know is that my mom or dad - never did write!

Nice to meet you! I read your story and I'm happy that you found this place as creating new income online is possible to everyone.

It is a big help in the internet world that you're good with words! It brought a smile to my face when you said that you say that your first husband needed a dictionary to talk to you. I can relate to that. :) Words are you ally!

Thank you for the kind words about 84. Truth is it's my wedding picture in November 2006. I was a widow 21 years til I met Gale and three months later we were married. I had two son's give me away lol. Lost that sweet man within six years with Alzheimer's. Dreaded horrible disease.

Thank you for your kind words. I'm still trying to find how to set up my SEO. I can't follow video because of my eyesight. I have to get the darn things fixed. I'm so not wanting to have my eyes operated on but that's silly. Everyone does it. LoL

What a story I'm I wish you all the best and my heart goes out to you. I think you have the motivation to make whatever you put your mind to happen. Time and dedication. Also I believe if you put your story on a crowdfunding website and would be quite easy to get some media coverage, these days that could also really help and it's free to set up.

Best wishes

Aussie Dan

Billie, I think the honor is all mine after reading your amazing profile. There is no doubt you can do this and you sure don't look like you are 84!!! I just love you to bits already. Stay focused on your training ( like your Mom would tell you) and complete each segment. If you have a niche already ( something you are passionate about sharing and can make some $$ with) start with the green button. If you want to market Wealthy Affiliate then go to Bootcamp first. There are so many ways for you to make money online Billie, and you are in the best place to learn that.

Hello Billie,♫Welcome! Nice to meet you ツ I wish you a lot of learning pleasure and fun on WA. Thank you for adding me to your network. That's a hell of a story and you are a remarkable strong lady!

From the start, I have written training for every issue I had problems with myself. I made an addition for After The Walkthrough. Also a list of 1001 niche ideas, a checklist with 25 points to go through before you publish a post, 101 blogging ideas when you get stuck and an A-Z WA dictionary. I just love lists:) It has been very helpful to a lot of people. I have listed them in one blog you can find on my profile. It's the first website link right under “Follow me on” (click on my picture to get there). I hope to help you with those.

If you have any questions, please reply to this message or leave a comment on my profile.
Success building your business in 2017. See you around, Greetings Loes

I really hope that being here with WA will provide the means to help your daughter. Here you will find people from all over the world and from all walks of life, it is an interesting cocktail for sure. Also when needed you will find many clever people here who will gladly help you. In total a great community.
I always tell the new people I meet here in case you need a good source for writing have a look at my WA post on the Spanish priest and the world library, amazing information to be found there.
Thank you for the follow and all the best.

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

You have a very powerful story. I know with what is here that you can replace the feeling of having work to do in a job. There is a lot to do and learn here. If you do the work and go through the trainings you can reach your goals of helping yourself and your daughter.

It is there before and with your drive and determination I know you will do good and thrive here.

Thank you for your kind words. You know God and friends like this community and you make it easier to sleep at night. Right now we are in a really tight place #s my daughter's xhusband who was taking care of her physical needs of lifting etc won't be here for awhile. She is stuck in house as the ramp for wheelchair wasn't done and she can't get inside if she gets out. We shall prevail tho!!!!

Welcome to WA - lots to learn here- stay focused - go through the Certification Courses first - you will get confused or frustrated from time to time - ask lots of questions - people are here to help you. 

HERE ARE 3 WA'ers Training Posts - they helped me - one is vocabulary you use here - one is a detailed use of your dashboard to find anything you will need - one is a plug-in to add to WordPress - that will help you build your sties. Hope they help - they did me This one I wrote - deals with how to "close" for the result you want. Stay with it - you don't need a wish of good luck - you need a plea to study the material and stay at it no matter what - it will change your life and hopefully the people you touch with your message.

Dave


Seems like you have lots to learn as I did - ask lots of questions and stay with it. there are many on here that will help you.

First, I just wanted to say, that it's great to connect on here, Billie! One of my old boyfriend's mother's name was Billie! I just love that!

I hate to hear about your daughter! I have spine issues as well, but thank goodness I don't have paralysis, just some nerve damage and slight hand mobility issues, due to arthritis and the nerve damage. I surely hope she is on the road to recovery soon, very sad to hear about all of your losses, Mrs. Billie.

I truly hope you find success here! If you ever need any help with Wealthy Affiliate or with your sites, please be sure to let me know! Just send me a message or leave a comment on my profile and I'll get you going in the right direction.

Best of luck to you!

Sincerely,
Heather M.

Billie Welcome to the incredible world of Wealthy Affiliate. The information here may seem overwhelming at times, but follow the path to success. Two crucial trainings that will build the foundation for your success are the Getting Started and then the Affiliate Bootcamp. Follow the path that has been used by others to success and you will succeed.
The second bit of advice is begin to work on your network of connections. Follow people as they follow you. Your network will prove to be a most valuable resource and will come to your aid along the way. So I have followed you to watch your progress, why not follow me in return?
Here is to your SUCCESS within Wealthy Affiliate, and everything that is offered here for you. -Dr. Carl Welliver

Hey Billie, I wanted to stop by and personally welcome you to WA. Rest assured everything I mentioned about them is true :)

Whether you're here to build a business, a website or just want to learn and make money online, this is the only place that will show you the best ways to do it.

Here are my 2 quick recommendations on getting started out the best possible way:

1. Please complete your account sign setup. This is just a simple 1 minute process that will better help myself and WA know more about you and your goals. I'd like to get to know you better and help you get going.

2. After you've done this, check this page out: (I think Kyle or Carson already recommended this). This is where everyone who joins WA should begin as it will explain everything.

The course is the most important part of WA. It will guide you to success!

And that's it!

Believe me when I say this stuff works. Just follow the instructions and if you have any questions Billie, feel free to leave them by just posting a reply here. I usually respond within 24 hours and will be more than happy to help you out!

One last thing I want to mention:

Currently you're a Starter member of WA. This is completely free and you can do a lot of things such as build 2 free websites, get access to training and the online chat, among other cool perks!

If you see that WA and it's training is something you'd like to continue, I would highly recommend upgrading to the Premium membership. It's usually $47 per month, but if you sign up within the first 7 days of joining WA...

1. You can get a 59% discount ($19 for the first month).

2. I'll send you my personal guide to Reaching Your Financial Independence in 2017. This guide is based on my EXACT profit generating techniques I've used with WA. If you are serious about online business, you need to have this. :)

3. You get access to my personal support, 24-7. If you need help, you can be sure that you can fire any questions my way. I have been in the Internet marketing world since 2006 and have likely seen it all! In short, if you have ANY questions, you can come to me anytime and I will help you out (if I can't, I promise to find you the answer). You can count on that.

Certainly this is up to you Billie. For now just check out the recommended things and see how it works out :)

Talk to you soon!

Vitaliy
