Profile: William D. Harasym

Your personal background.
I Love dogs and cats, the great outdoors, and being politically involved, advocating for those who can't, especially the elderly and disabled, and protecting our planet!!! I miss my dog, a beautiful Chocolate Lab, named Bear, whom I had to leave in Florida when I went into the hospital in July of 2003. I left him with a neighbor, who had promised to watch him while I was in the hospital, and then disappeared off the face of the earth, with my Beardog. That was so mean! Bear will/would be 16 years old this year, July 6th, 2011. I Served in the USAF as a Military Working Dog Handler. Moved to Sheridan, WY (Again!) on Sept. 29, 2008, after living Buffalo, WY. since May 2005, and after spending a year and a half at the Veterans Home of WY, which is also in Buffalo. (And prior to that, spent almost a half of year @ the VA Hospitals in Sheridan WY, and Denver CO.) My advocacy there was not as successful as I would have liked, but I did my best. What they do to our aging, and disabled veterans is wholly inappropriate, and disgusting! God is watching over them though, so I have left them in good hands. I first moved to Sheridan, WY. in March of 1992, thru 2002, when I sold my house and moved to Florida to be near my parents. I came back to WY. on July 25, 2003 to enter the VA Hospital in Sheridan, WY. for physical, and mental health issues. While there, I was diagnosed with some neurological problems (An inoperable low-grade glioma in my left cerebellum, left pons, left peduncle, and medulla.)which causes me to be fully disabled regarding work type activity. The tumor is slow-growing, which is a plus, because if they remove it, there would be a major change in my quality of life, so for the mean time, I will stick with the status quo. I was born in Brooklyn NY, and I grew up on Long Island, NY. in Selden. Also attended college there, except for a brief stint at Wake Forest University. Most of my Family still lives back there or in Florida. I have 2 younger brothers, both married with some great kids, and my sister Debra, who is the youngest of us 4, and she has 10 year old triplets, Kyle, Matthew, and Nicholas. My other nephews, and niece are Jimmy, aged 16, LK, 20 years old, and his sister Nicole, 22 years old. I love Wyoming for it's scenery, flora and fauna, and some of the people. Wyoming is mostly a backward looking socially conservative state which still idolizes Cheney. They are also against gay marriage, (Equal Rights for All) and anything that sounds even close to being liberal, adamant teabaggers and closeted racists, and think our recovering wolf population should now be hunted as trophy animal and/or predators. Other then that there are some good folks here, and I know all 7 of them.
