A Little About Me & This Blog
Hello and welcome to Life With Kadie. My name is Kadie or Kirsten if you’re coming from A Story About A Girl. I started this blog in May 2020 as a place to blog about lifestyle, chronic illness and mental health. My aim is to write about how chronic illness and mental health effect’s everyday lifestyle and about the changes and adaptions that can be made to live a full and fun lifestyle without sacrificing too much due to chronic illness and/or mental health-related issues. I enjoy sharing things that have helped me along the way from therapies to brands and products that help me adapt and do what I need and want to do.
I have been blogging for a little over 20 years, 9 of which have been on my personal blog A Story About A Girl. I was diagnosed in my early 20’s with Fibromyalgia, IBS, Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Depression and in my mid-30’s with Type 2 Diabetes. I suffer from chronic pain and fatigue due to Fibromyalgia and complications of Type 2 Diabetes and it really used to limit what I felt I could and couldn’t do. Along with fairly severe anxiety and moderate depression life sometimes felt insurmountable. I have been working for years on controlling my chronic pain, fatigue, anxiety and depression and enjoying my life to the fullest and finally, feel that I am where I want to be.
I am currently going back to school full-time to become a web developer and am currently working on blogging as my main source of income while I complete school. If you are interested in working with me you can contact me through my work with me page. I can also help with setting up WordPress and creating or editing themes, writing content, and many other things. Contact me here if you have any questions about anything you find on this blog or have any questions for me.
