My name is Fawn. I’m a gregarious individual who loves making order out of chaos. I have more education and experience in stress management than I ever wanted. I am a mother of six and grandmother of three. My family is the joy (and stress) in my life and I enjoy spending as much time with them as I can. We go camping every summer and have regular get-togethers throughout the year. I am also a small business owner with three businesses (yes 3, but the third one was an accident).
I have bipolar disorder, post traumatic stress disorder and an anxiety disorder. While these have disordered my life they do not define who I am. I am defined by the choices that I make and the actions that I take. This is where I have gained my education in stress management. I have studied stress, how it affects my body and how to minimize it. This was not enough to subdue the monstrous darkness that was eating me from the inside out. It was about 20 years before I was ever given a diagnosis for what I struggled with. It has been a 15 year journey to reclaim myself and my life. I started this blog to share the adventures and insights I have gained along the way and the bumps that are still in the road.
My personal hobbies are:
- Reading books in various genres
- Crochet (best anxiety therapy)
- Playing the piano
- Designing and sewing clothing
- Dinner parties and social gatherings
