I’m Jennifer, a Midwestern 40-something, married to a wonderful guy named Michael. An urbanite at heart but suburbanite in reality, I’m into food blogs, the psychology of things, and I love to write.
A few years ago, when I was 38, I suffered a heart attack due to Sudden Coronary Artery Dissection (SCAD). Against improbable circumstances, I lived.
Later, after continued medical crisis and testing, I was diagnosed with a vascular disease called Fibromuscular Dysplasia (FMD), an overall problem with my arteries which most likely led to my heart attack.
What does all this technical stuff mean? I live with a chronic condition, take lots of pills, and try to be healthy. I get to live!
I started this blog as a way to work through my thoughts, in hopes of offering inspiration and encouragement to others. I blog about random thoughts, ideas, faith, motivation, doubt, fear, food, and living with chronic illness.
My memoir, Because I Lived, is in the editorial process, hopefully published soon. 🙂
