I just celebrated my 49th birthday this month (February 2014) and am currently a stay-at-home grandma. Up until August of 2010 I was the Packaging Center Manager of our local newspaper. I loved my job and it consumed my life. Then in July, I received a summons for jury duty and my life changed drastically overnight. The experience triggered a severe case of PTSD with mild agoraphobia that has kept me locked not just in my home, but in my bedroom in my home. I find it very difficult to interact with people, and physically painful to try to go out in public. Digi-scrapping has become my link to the outside world. Slowly but surely I am beginning to remember who I was before attempting to do my civic duty, lol. I'm happy to be a part of the Pixel Scrapper community and look forward to getting to know everyone.
