I am blessed to be married to "My best Friend".
My husband & I just celebrated our 1 year wedding anniversary the prior week when returning home what felt like a abscessed tooth would turn my life upside down.
June 29th of 2010 I went to see my dentist, unable to speak clearly, eat & trying to manage to use a straw.
June 30th, my birthday, I was diagnosed with Trigeminal Neuralgia and lost my job, yes, all in one day.
From July 2010 to present I have survived four craniotomies & 11 surgeries.
After suffering with headaches for 7 1/2 months I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation Type III, I had my 4th craniotomy August 12, 2011.

The headaches returned again Jan 3, 2012, shortly after I was diagnosed with Pseudotumor Cerebri. The Intracranial Hypertension pressure in my head was so high & debilitating I was going blind. The day before Thanksgiving I received my lumbar shunt which has given me some relief from the IH.
I have been officially diagnosed with PTSD due to all the trauma. I am unable to work as I still struggle to accept & learn how to deal with my new life.
There is "no cure" for IH, it's a daily struggle but making my wreaths, staying positive and learning my "new life" & keeping the faith I will never be defeated!

God is good! I am so blessed, I am a survivor.

I have always had a passion for do-it-yourself decor and anything that keeps my creative mind going. Making wreaths has been a huge part of my therapy and helps me with my cognitive abilities. I like the challenge of figuring out how to make my wreaths with a vision & creativity.
I wanted to share a little piece of my world and my creative passions.
Every proceed made from my wreaths go towards my medical bills.

Thank you for visiting Nanny's Front Room today,
I really appreciate you stopping by!

Have a blessed day
Sincerely,
Janet
