What's New in premature birth

Hello! I'm New...

My name is Serieve (imsmandrews). I just signed up to The Mighty today (03/23/2023). My "About Me" section is filled out, if anyone is interested. An adult, I live in Ontario, Canada. My main Chronic Illnesses | Disabilities are a Brain Injury, Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy, MECFS (Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome), and various Neurological symptoms. MECFS has very much derailed my life; I'm mainly housebound, am often in bed (not by choice), and I cannot work mainstream currently (eg. 8-4, 9-5).

I dislike most willful ignorance and stupidity (Ableism comes to mind).

Does anyone know if there is a place on here to ask questions about site preferences How-To's and related?

What are some things newcomer members like myself should know about The Mighty?

After checking out Groups and Topics, where should I go from here?

Hi everyone! I'm Sarah and I'm new here. Here's a little bit about me: I was born 3 months premature (1 lb 11 oz) and I now have medical trauma and complex PTSD. If there's anyone out there who has medical trauma or is premature, I'd love to hear your story.

any conditions you know that cause purple patches? #Undiagnosed

i know i sound like a hypochondriac with all my questions on here, but i have previously mentioned purple patches on on my knees, elbows, and ankles. they’re blotchy and seem to be caused maybe by a blood vessel problem? i also press down on any part of my skin and it blanches. they’re among other issues, but this seems like it might be characteristic of something. if anything, seems like it might be autoimmune.
