My name is Doris E. Pavlichek, and I am a technical writer working for a software company in Bethesda, MD. I have been married almost 24 years, I have a 23-year-old daughter and a 19-year-old son. Two of my technical books have been published on the open market, and I'm hoping to someday publish some of my fiction and poetry.
Since my bout with what the doctors believe may have been ischemic strokes or TIAs earlier in the year, I seem to have made a full recovery, for which I am completely and eternally grateful. I've made some positive life changes including weight loss and exercise, and I'm hoping to turn things around!
