Ahhh where to start? My name is Heather Hammel, I am 23 years old, and a dog mom of 3. Hmmm, lets start with the dog part of my blog. I have grown up with dogs my entire life, from Beagles to Labs to Bulldogs to Bullmastiffs. I have experienced a lot of things with my dogs and have gained a lot of knowledge. I want to open up this blog to other dog parents to discuss any issues or concerns they are having with their dogs, those seeking recommendations on anything dog related, and to people out there that want to or are considering becoming a pet parent.
Fibromyalgia. I have went to different doctors and specialists seeking answers for my symptoms. Although I have taken a break from looking for the right doctor for right now, I have been diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia. I was diagnosed almost two years ago but I have been battling these disorders for much longer. The symptoms would come and go and my parents and doctors would tell me that I was fine and it was all in my head. I will note that at the age of 15, I did get mono three times within a year. After that, the symptoms continued getting worse. So two years ago, I finally decided to see a doctor after everything was getting significantly worse. And although I have been diagnosed, a lot of doctors don't have much experience with autoimmune disorders and still kind of look at you like you're crazy. Dealing with CFS and Fibro on a daily basis has become more and more difficult, especially when it comes to work and even household chores. I know there are other people out there who struggle with this or who have overcome this. I am here to share my story and hope to hear yours as well.
Fashion and celebrity gossip. I LOVE shopping, clothes, makeup, helping people shop, etc. So this part of my blog is to discuss latest trends, places I like to shop, my outfits, etc. For a few friends and family members, I have helped pick out or suggest clothes and colors that will look good on them and help them shop for an outfit for a special occasion. So anyone out there that would like some help, feel free to contact me! I also love reading about celebrity gossip. I know it is not for everyone. Some people think it is stupid and that people who read it have no lives. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, whether it be valid or not. So you'll see some posts about the latest celebrity gossip as well.
Well that wasn't too difficult. My mind is a little all over the place right now and I'm having some trouble focusing but I just wanted to give anyone viewing this page some insight on what the purpose of this blog is. Can't wait to continue this new journey!
Bye for Now!
