I'm from the Chicago South Suburbs, in the process of moving to Middle Tennessee. I'm just a midwestern girl in the bible belt. I have several disorders that I blog about in order to reach a wider audience. I have Ehlers Danlos syndrome (EDS), Pudendal Nerve Entrapment Syndrome (PNE) , Maythurners Syndrome (MTS), & Multiple Vascular compressions. My interests include Linkin Park & Mike Shinoda, One Tree Hill, Plants N Animals, Tattoos, crafting, & the color orange.
