TMJ Friends

No More Mashed Potatoes, originally focused on living with TMJ disorder, has developed into a blog for anyone with chronic illness. In So, You’ve Been Diagnosed as “Chronically Ill”, Stacy explores the overwhelming emotions — anger, denial, hopelessness, fear, guilt, confusion, grief and avoidance — that accompany a diagnosis.

Stacy’s most recent project has been transforming the website she co-founded into a non-profit resource for people with TMJ disorder. Pain Management 101, the latest resource on the site is a must-read.

It’s a great resource for anyone with a chronic illness or pain disorder. Be sure to check it out.

    Thanks for posting about me! I’ve been MIA on the blog because I have another project in the works – a different blog focusing on chronic pain/illness. I’ll let you know the URL when it’s up and going.
    TMJ Friends has been growing by leaps and bounds – hopefully we will have our non-profit status soon.
    Anyway, thanks for bringing attention to the site. I’m sure that a lot of your readers can identify with (or even have) TMJ disorder.
    Sincerely,
    stacy

    After taking a break from the support world, I’m back, and refreshed. I’m sure you understand the burn out that can happen. Anyway, I get your blog by RSS and read all of your posts (speaking of which, do you want to share google shared items? let me know!). Keep up the awesome work! 🙂

    Hi Stacy – Kerrie’s away until mid-July, and I’m helping to hold the fort in the meantime. Thanks for updating the links! I’ll pass your question about sharing google shared links on to Kerrie.
