About Me: Female, 37, Edmonton, AB, member since Jun 2009
I am a 26 year old woman - mom of Andrea, wife to Heath. I love spending time with my family and friends, in my spare time you can find me scrapbooking and making cards & other paper crafts. I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator and love being able to share what I love with
[More] others, to inspire others to reach their creative potentials. Prior to Andrea's birth (about 4 months before) I worked in the health care field as a nursing attendant while slowly working towards my social work degree. I love to help others and often find I'm putting more into bettering those around me than I put into myself.... so a goal of mine is to put me closer to the top of my list!
I have suffered from TMD since I was about 13 - the worst flare up being the past 10 months or so. I am hugely dependent upon pain medications to keep me going and make an attempt at a "normal" lifestyle. I am currently off work due to complications with my daughter's delivery but often find myself questioning how I will be able to return to work with the chronic jaw pain and medication regime that I'm on. My dream is to get to a point where I feel that I'm living life to my fullest potential; not restricted by pain or the side effects of pain medications.
