Tammy Mashburn is a writer suffering from a chronic neurological disease, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, a form of Dysautonomia Disorder, and bone degeneration. Refusing to let suffering define her, she writes from the perspective of wilderness and not desperation.
A former marathon runner enjoying vigorous 25-mile morning runs, Tammy now refers to her POTS diagnosis as The Wilderness Marathon. This marathon is unlike any she’s experienced yet has given her a perspective, which benefits her readers. On this journey, she longs to encourage others in their race.
Writing from a place of chronic pain and everyday difficulties in the mundane, Tammy abides in, and relies on, her deep relationship with Jesus Christ and is committed to sharing her gifts of grace with her readers.
Tammy lives with her husband of thirty plus years, referring to him as her Sweet Man, and one furry friend, Lola. Together they reside in their Wilderness Place in the foothills of beautiful South Carolina.
Tammy’s passion is to encourage women, teaching Sunday School, leading a women’s small group at their church, and blogging. [Tammy can be found at tammylmashburn.com, where she shares gifts of grace several times each week.]
