Hello,Close this Window
My name is Ryan Conroy. I was born in New Haven Connecticut on December ninth, 1984. I'm 32 years old. One of my main interests is Psychology, and I hope to one day be able to help people with any type of problem they may have. I have had a very hard life, and I hate to see others have to see or go through the things I did. I try to do anything I can to prevent it. I'm a little shy when I first meet people, but once you get to know me, I can be pretty talkative.
Some things I love are reading and writing, music, watching movies, using the computer, chatting with people, and lots of other things that I'm not going to waste time writing down. I love the New York Yankees, and I have for most of my life. The biggest inspiration in my life is Aaron Lewis. He is the lead singer of the rock group Staind, and his lyrics have helped me through some very hard times, which you will read about below. If it wasn't for him, I wouldn't be here right now. I owe him everything I have, and I always wish there was someway I could thank him for what he's done. For more on Aaron, check out my blog. It's a long read, but it has everything you could ever want to know about me in it.
I lost both my parents at an early age.. My father was in a serious car accident when I was eight, and my mother died when I was 16 from a severe Asthma attack. Since my mom's death, my family has fallen apart, so I don't have much of a family. It's just something I have to deal with though, and I don't let it stop me.
I'm visually impaired because I had cancer when I was two years old. Between the ages of two and eight, I had a lot of medical issues. These included, the cancer I mentioned above, a Bone Marrow Transplant, several surgeries, and lots of things I can't even remember. I was lucky to survive cancer once, but I had know idea it'd be back a second time.
During high school, I was an athlete. I was a wrestling champion, Goalball all-star, and track All-star. I also played Baseball. I never let my lack of vision stop me from anything, and sports were my dream. I was going to be a professional wrestler, but at the age of 16 when I was headed the right way with everything, cancer decided to return.
I had to have a knee replacement in my right knee, and this caused a huge turn of events in my life. I had to learn how to walk again, and dealing with the fact that my right leg would never be the same was not easy. I still have a difficult time dealing with it to this day.
Psychology was my second choice for a career, for as mentioned above, I love helping people. I can't stand people going through hard times, and I do anything I can to prevent it. At the age of 31, I've gone through things people in there 60's haven't yet. This is not fair, but I've learned a lot from it. Sometimes I feel like I know it all, and I've seen it all. This is not true, for no one knows or has seen it all, but it could be a good feeling sometime. Sometime it could also be dreadful.
My past affects me deeply. I've had a lot of losses, and that's the reason I'm so quiet, shy, and kind of spaced out half the time. I hope to meet a lot of new people though, and put my past behind me. I'm the only member of my family who has attended college, and I hope to make something out of it. I constantly strive for success, no matter what's standing in my way. Don't be afraid to talk to me because once you get to know me, all this stuff seems like nothing. Again, as said before, it takes me awhile to open up to people, but once I do, you'll always have a friend in me. I'm always here to listen to anyone, always here to talk, and always here to help.
Well, this is really all I can think of to say about myself. If you have any questions for me, or want to get to know me more, don't hesitate to send me an Email, add me to messengers, send me a PM, ETC. I look forward to hearing from you.
