A stay-at-home mom to a little boy named Syrus Voltaire, Jennifer dabbles in jewelry making, cooking and gardening when free time allows. She has written for many parenting websites in the past including What To Expect, Growing Your Baby, Imperfect Parent, Life As Mama, and many more. Afflicted with chronic illness at a young age, she founded the popular online support group, Positivity In Pain, and is currently working on her first book. She has a penchant for hoarding shiny beads and blank notebooks.

“No one ever expects to become ill, it just sort of happens to us. For some, it is a slow process, while for others they are befallen rather quickly with an illness. You may have been searching for years for a diagnosis, a name for your pain, or maybe you were diagnosed rather quickly after your symptoms started showing. I”
Jennifer Corter, Positivity in Pain

“By seeking out a therapist, social worker, or even just someone to talk to who isn't family or friends, will help a great deal to help you work out your feelings. Our lives were essentially ripped right from underneath our feet, that isn't something that is menial or minuscule. We mustn't downplay our feelings. By doing so would only hinder our personal growth and block our path to healing ourselves emotionally. Never neglect your mental health in lieu of your physical health. If you feel you need to see a mental health professional, do it. If you need help seeking someone out, ask for it. There is no shame in asking for help. If”
Jennifer Corter, Positivity in Pain

“Ah, guilt. One of the most painful human emotions that one can experience. Even without the burden of an illness, guilt is a part of life. But so many who live with a chronic condition feel intense guilt. When I had first found out that I was pregnant with my son, the very first emotion that kicked in wasn't pure joy or excitement, there were not any happy tears shed from me. My very first thought when I saw the positive pregnancy test was "What kind of mom am I going to be? What if my child grows up to hate me because I can't do everything he'll want to do?" Guilt is such a common emotion that surrounds us. Even those who aren't parents experience it in other ways, guilt over not being able to work anymore, guilt over not getting the chores finished, and the list can go on and on. It can turn into a relentless cycle of self-blame. There is something important to remember here, when guilt decides to sneak up on you. You did not ask for any of this. None of this is in your control, it is not your fault. I do not care if you have to repeat this out loud over and over again to make it stick, but I want you to know that you are still awesome, despite these shitty illnesses.”
Jennifer Corter, Positivity in Pain

“Two or three things I know for sure, and one of them is the way you can both hate and love something you are not sure you understand.”
