Hi, my name is Freda Butler-Bohn. I'm 52, and I'm from Pauline SC and live in Arden, NC.
I have Friedreich's Ataxia. I was diagnosed around age 32 when I was going to have my 3rd child. I have three children now, two boys and one girl. Aged 20, 23, and 30 years old plus I have two grandkids. For pets, I have three cats and a bird. I went to college and am a Registered Nurse. I worked up till 2012 when I first became an RN I wanted to be a Missionary midwife, but I can't do that so I may go back to get BSN so I can work somewhere as a nurse sitting down.
When I kept falling and breaking bones, I used a cane for a few years, and now I use a rolling walker for short walks and a wheelchair for long walks. My baby sister has FA too, and she is in a wheelchair full-time now. My motto is, "They say I have FA I say it doesn't have me!" I love disco music, fishing and RV camping, drawing, singing at church, and writing poetry.
