Hello there, my name is Amanda and welcome to my blog. You can read more about why I created this site in the New Nutrition Section, but for now, I’ll just share a little about myself. I’m a 28, going on 29, year old nurse, fiancee, fur momma, sister, daughter, lover of life. I’m always teased for oversharing, so maybe this is my outlet to do so, with being able to edit my words, instead of saying them!
So to start my oversharing, I grew up with severe anxiety, which went undiagnosed until I was 13 years old. It was scary not knowing what was wrong with me and even scarier to be an almost high-schooler with a mental health issue. As my life has progressed, so have my struggles with mental health. I carry many diagnoses at this point in my life and carry around various necessities to ensure I have what I need to stay stable and happy. It’s a lot, but it’s me.
Ironically enough, I have found my passion working with children/adolescents in the psychiatric field. Being able to help the younger generations with their struggles, in hopes it will help improve their lives is not only rewarding, it’s fulfilling. It’s hard to imagine doing much else, but I’m sure there will always be new paths for me to follow and fall in love with.
Speaking of love, I’m madly in love with this guy named Ryan. He is the gentlest, most loving and caring partner I could ask for and I can’t imagine life without him. You’ll hear and see a lot of him on here. Be prepared. We have two beautiful fur babies in our lives, Bowser, our border collie-husky-great dane mix and Yoshi, our orange tabby. You’ll see plenty of them here too. They kind of run our lives while we’re at home.
I have a wonderful family, my mom, dad, and older brother (among many, many extended family members) who I love to my core and can’t imagine being without. They mean the world to me. I hope you come back to check out the happenings of the site and catch up on my crazy, busy, loving life. I can’t wait to get to know you!
