About Youth Of A Nation

Welcome to Youth of A nation! I am a mother of 5 beautiful children. Four years ago I met my husband who served his country and now suffers from PTSD . He had two children from a previous marriage as did I. Since then we decided to have a child together which makes 5! It’s definitely challenging at times but the key is to work as a team. After I had my now 2 year old I have had a few health issues which can make things even harder. I have been suffering from Anxiety, Panic disorder, OCD , and depression since I was a little girl. Of course when I was younger I had no idea what was wrong with me. On top of all of that I developed a Chronic pain Illness as well.  Now I have a son who suffers from some of the same symptoms that I experience . One of my other children suffers from ADHD . He struggles day to day but is making amazing progress. There are so many road bumps  in our life that can trigger these Illnesses and I would like to touch base on some of these issues. I have researched  everything from mental health disorders to parenting skills and so on. There will be information about parenting, Chronic pain, as well as mental health. In my life it is important for me to include all of these because it is apart of me and who I am today. I WANT TO MAKE THIS AN OPEN BLOG AS WELL.  I can use your help by sending me your knowledge, Ideas and thoughts, quotes etc… Everything  sent to me will get credit where credit is due. Please fell free to contact me. This blog is for all of those who need more information on their conditions or would like to contribute to the cause. The more we learn, the more we can try to live somewhat functional lives. So by all means stay for a while and check out “our Home”.

         ~Dedicated to my amazing and wonderful son~    

Some of the most extraordinary people have ever met are suffering from some form of mental illness their pain forces them to be honest it doesn't get any realer than that

  10. You have a really great and important blog here, continue the style.
    I have a son struggled as a kid too, but he is now adult and got his education too, even “all the right people” then told, this would never be possible. So just believe everything is possible, miracles happens.
    I will follow your blog.

    • Thank you so very much for your encouraging words! I constantly worry but I told him that this is not all his life will be.Bigger and better things are coming it just takes time. Sometimes I forget that though so thanks again for reminding me :)

  11. Your blog is great and will open up doors for others to share their stories and help each other work through their challenges. Working through my grief and anxiety after my son’s death, I found overtime that is was daily Yoga and Meditation that calmed my mind and balanced my life completely.

    Im a Counsellor and I have not found any better remedy for anxiety and stress than finding stillness through meditation and yoga. I hope this helps.


    • I always try to get time to do yoga but I usually end up in bed instead. With 5 kids that’s about all you have time for lol. However I used to do yoga a palate when I was younger. At the time I only had two children. It really does help though!

  12. It’s true, it is difficult to find time and I notice you said in you writing that “In my life it is important for me to include the two…my mental health and my parenting”. When you make that time a priority for you, not only will you heal but so will your children. I found it always requires effort, but the results for practising yoga and meditation, far out way the benefits!

    I hope you feel that soon and see great results. xxx

    • Oh I do agree with you, but as of right now my house is complete chaos which My husband and I are working on together so we can find extra time for ourselves. My son who also has social anxiety did yoga over the years. I truly think it has it’s benefits. Thank you for your advice! Thats what I am looking for on this blog..peoples input :)

  13. WOW! What a combination! Girl, you and the family will be in my prayers. I try to post daily on my blog, hope they are helpful & inspirational to & for you! God bless & Godspeed!

  14. There I am! How cool! Thanks, Darc 😊

  15. Hi! I am the administrator of Mental Health Advocates United page on Facebook. I shared your page on there and read some of you blog. I am wondering if I could post some of my blogs on yours. I also am always asking people to be guest bloggers on mine so would love it if you would share too. I, like you would want you to include all your information and would give you credit. What’s the next step? My blog is bipolarbandit.wordpress,com if you want to check it out. The best way to contact me is by writing me a message on the page you posted on. Thanks.

  16. Would a person be ashamed of a cold or the flu? No, then they should no feel ashamed of mental illness.
