I am Ashley. I am 19. I feel kind of stupid, because unlike a lot of people on this site, I haven't had any surgeries or diagnoses yet. I haven't even seen a specialist or chiropractor or anything. I guess I should, because I've been putting up with pain in my knees for about 8 yrs now. People said when I was younger it was just "growing pains", and if it was I wouldn't wish this kind of pain on ANYONE!

Sorry, I guess this is supposed to be about me right?

Well, um I am pretty athletic. I've done sports or at least real routine exercise for as long as I can remember. I go to college in VA and I am a English major. I have a boyfriend of 2 months named Matt, and I love him dearly. What else? I love music and movies. I love dancing and bowling and shooting pool. I love writing (obviously  :) ) and reading. I love the beach, hence the screen name on here.

 Alright, well talk more later.
