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 and also has Bipolar disorder. 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 5 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. Sometimes you will see posts from my daughter, inspiration from my children, thoughts about life (along with my opinion at times), and poems from friends and family. We all chip in a little to help others as well as ourselves. 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, thoughts, quotes etc… Everything sent to me will get credit where credit is due. Please feel 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~
