Welcome! My name is Jessica D, I’m 31 years old, and live in Northeastern Ohio. I live with my husband of almost 8 years and two female cats, Elena and Linnea. I work part-time as a caretaker for three special needs children and have a bachelors and master’s degree in Community Health Education from Kent State University. Beginning in July 2011, for the last three and a half years, I wrote the weight loss surgery blog, Bariatric Beginnings. However this year in 2015 I decided to change the focus on my blog and move out of the community of weight loss surgery. My new blog will focus on my life in general. I will share openly about my struggles with binge eating disorder, fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, weight gain/loss, and chronic migraines. I also hope to share education about my medical conditions and hopefully about other conditions that I do not live with that deserve also to be learned about. This blog is all about me and my journey through this path called life, I hope you’ll join me on it!
