I am a 28 year old Brazilian Medical doctor and professional English/Portuguese medical translator, graduated in the best Med school in my country, and have always had a positive outlook on life. Unfortunately, a disease, Atopic Dermatitis, has weakened me to the point of getting to depriving me of my work, my social life, and I have barely been out of home for almost 13 months now. I had spent everything I ever earned in 2 years of hard E.R. work with treatments, traditional and alternative, only to see my skin worsen with each passing day, until it put a complete halt to my 'outside' life since January of 2005. So, I've been trying to live off the net when I am in psychological condition to write, though with not exactly wonderful results.
