My name is Melissa (Missie) and I am 41 years old (soon to be 42!). I am married with 2 boys, ages 10 and 14. I am currently disabled after an extreme bout with salmonella 2 years ago. I used to be a pharmacy technician and loved my job very much. It was very rewarding at times. I now spend my days, gardening, baking and cooking. That's when my body will let me!
