Thank you for your support in 2010… Here’s to a happy, healthy, hopeful 2011!

  1. Hi Everyone and Happy New Year! I would never have made it through my TMJD issues in 2010 without TMJ Hope. I mean that. This is where I was educated, informed, and supported. This is where I found the information I needed to seek and advocate for my own medical care and this is where I found the support and determination to see it through.
    Now that I have had the arthroscopy that has done so much good, (I can open “two fingers,” I can chew soft foods for the first time in six months, and the pain is much more managable), I would like to learn how to manage the day to day pain, stiffness, and on-going TMJD issues that will be sticking around.
    Thank you so much for everything! I hope I can be the one to “pay it forward” to other TMJD folks in 2011.

  2. Thank you so much for your comment and your support, Lorelei. It’s extremely difficult to adequately communicate in words how much the support of members like you means to Candy & I… Comments like yours carry us through when the going gets tough (and believe it or not, there have been many things happening behind the scenes this year that have tried our commitment to this cause).
    So, thank you!!!! I hope that we can continue to provide the same level of support & information as we grow!
    I will be emailing you soon to get some info on your surgery & recovery.. hopefully we can put up some helpful posts for everyone very soon!
