I am a 52 year old wife and grandmother, a survivor of a 20-year computer software career. I am currently working to become a professional speaker, specializing in personal development, or personal transformation as I like to think of it. I love animals, dogs in particular, and currently have 3, along with a parakeet who lives in my home office in a cage. I have almost all of the personality traits that are common to people with TMS, and have suffered a disabling back/leg condition for the past 5 years, with the last 2 years being particularly bad. As a holistic healer, I believe strongly in the mind/body connection and have documented instances when my back has gotten better or worse depending on what I was thinking about, or talking to someone about. I am anxious to see this condition resolved and am working diligently to get to the end of it. My life is waiting for me!
