Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



Hi, my name is Elizabeth. How ever, I sometimes go by Lizzie. I spell it different than you. I am 13, and I am willing to talk and have a blast with you. Talk to you soon, enjoy your stay at AFB.

Wellcome to AFB Message Bord! My name is Crhis and I'm 16 and I love computers and the internet and I'm in tenth grade and I like to meet new people. I hope you enjoy your stay here at AFB!


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



hi, I love swimming too. Only problem is that I never really get to do it.


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



i used to swim in 9th grade but i really sucked at it so i quit. i love cross country running though, but i'm bad at that too. haha. i guess things i like to do are mostly stuff that the normal teenager would find boring. AKA reading medical textbooks. ya, i actually do that. one of my friends has an apex, it kept deleting her homework. does yours do that? also, what's your eye condition. mine is bileteral optic nerve hypoplasia, which means the nerves going from the backs of my eyes to my vission cortex are too small. i used to have some sight until my retinas detached.

Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



I have Retinopathy Of Prematority (ROP for short).


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



hey everyone! Elizabeth, do you only let specific ppl call u Lizzie? when I was little only my family was allowed 2 call me lizzy. then 1 day my mom came to my school for something and kept calling me lizzy, then all my friends called me tht and it just stuck. Now I feel like lizzy fits my personality more so thts how I introduce myself.
Chris you seem like a nice person, I suck at tech stuff so you will prob be getting a lot of questions from me, lol!
Zumer what is your name & why don't you swim? What othr stuff do you like, and why is ur name zumer, what does it mean?
Sarah, I loooooovvvveee partying like seriously, no1 parties harder.
Alana, if you dont like swmng why does ur name have the word chlorine in it? Lol my best friend tried to get me to run crosscntry but I hate distance, I can sprint though. I love my apex, hope im not like speaking too soon or anything but no it doesnt dlt my hw.
Oh & I lost my sight at age 5. retinal detachment. Im totally blind, and I live for stopping stariotypes, about any1.


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



hey, my user name is a branch from my last name, and 7 is my favorite number. I don't get to swim often, because I don't have a pool anymore, and all the beaches around here that are any good are at least a half hour out. I like music, I play electric guitar, and I also like computers I am aiming to become a computer engineer.


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



I bet I coult out-party you! Lol! Since roller coasters are boring now all of a sudden, I'll just party.


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



comon misconseption. chlorine in its pure form is a yellowish green gas that when breathed in, is fatal. it rips electrons from the atoms in your cells. the "chlorine" in pools is actually a compound containing chlorine. ya, they reatached one of my retinas and it worked, but other problems with my eyes have made keeping my sight an imposability. i have a little light perseption left, but i'm going to lose that in about a month.


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



Hullo, Lizzy, so you puedes entender el idioma castellano o español, I am glad to know you are here, and where are you from?? USA, ¿Y cómo sabes el español, tiene familiares de habla hispana?

Un gran salute.

Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!

Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



I've had 3 surgeries and don't plan to.


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



Hi Lizzy
welcome to afb I'm 16 and legally blind in my right and complete with my left
I've had two surgeries but i don't remember them i was less than a year old when they did it. I've been loosing my vision since 6th grade (I'm in 10th now)
I like movies mostly, my favorite films the Wolf Man(1941), I also like to swim,read,write, computers and i like to do a lot of things that are out doors.

Alana what's cross country like I've been looking into it but I'm still a bit iffy on it


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



Hey Lizzy!
My name is McKenzie. I'm 15 years old and a Sophomore in high school. I have ocular albinism so my vision is about 20/400, but i have never had any surgeries.


Re:HEY I'm new!!!!!!



Thanks for the book suggestion Elizabeth! I will definitly check it out!
Jillian, I know thats right! Don't worry about it just let whatever happens happen! I have the same attitude!
Wingman you had surgery on ur eye when u were a baby? how did they kno u were having trouble seeing?
Oh and about crosscountry unless u like running for miles and miles it's HELL! ur legs r tired ur throat is burning & u still have 2 miles left. but on the bright side ur body looks AMAZING! I mean killer legs, thys, butt, and abs!
Kenzie ur lucky u havent had surgery before. When I was 5 I started getting surgeries, I needed eyedrops after it. I needed them about 3 times a day 2 of which were during school hours, my school would not give me them, so I had to take a year off, which really sucked cuz I had to do kendergarden agn. The worst part is this was a school for the blind! haha u would think they would be used to this kind of thing but no.


Re: HEY I'm new!!!!!!



Wow that sucks!
