Introduce Yourself!

Posted by Mysty Vander at April 20. 2018


I thought it would be important if we all introduced ourselves!

My name is Mysty/Courtney. I'm 26 years old and live in a small city in Ontario, Canada. I am a parent, an avid D&D player and content creator. I often don't spread out to other RPG systems, but I wish I had the time to! I'm new to ASL, just in the beginning stages of learning and achieving my certifications through as many levels as I can.

I was born with a congenital and incurable disorder which causes a deficiency/defect in my collagen (COL1A1) gene. It's called Osteogenesis Imperefcta. My five year old also has it. Among the many lovely side effects of this genetic anomaly (easily broken bones, bone pain, short stature, degenerative scoliosis, heart defects, respiratory issues, etc.) is a 50% prevalence in hearing loss. I have been identified as one of the 1 out of every 2. Thankfully, I was able to live my life until now primarily hearing. However, my low-frequency hearing is going quite fast now and it is estimated my high frequency shall join it by the time I'm in my mid-thirties. I'm very lucky and privileged to know this all beforehand and catch it early so as to prepare myself ahead of time! 

Also, I'm a full-time licensed child care owner so that tends to keep me rather busy!

I'd love to hear some anecdotes about yourselves, what brings you here, and what games you often play!
