Greetings from New Zealand
My name is Francie and I have PWS. I am 32 years old. I live in a residential home with different caregivers who also stay the night. I have a cat, but I want to have a dog as well.
During the day I either go to pottery, or woodwork, aqua aerobics and I volunteer at a place called "Kitten Inn". I used to do a lot of other stuff as well, but it falls to bits after a while. I had paper runs, volunteered at the Salvation Army shop sorting out clothes, and did Avon makeup for a while. I like to work out different ways of doing things which often aren't appreciated. People also think that I steal stuff. It's so hard having Prader-Willi. I used to find school difficult until I went to a special residential school called Salisbury. Everyone there had special needs. It was such a good school but now the Government is closing it down. No one understands.
I have three little nieces and one nephew. I love to buy them things, but that often means I don't have enough money left. I like to visit Mum and Dad, especially when my sisters and their children are there. Three days is enough, though.
