Welcome to Carter’s Cozy Nest, the magical unicorn land of your dreams. Okay, maybe not your dreams, but it has certainly been the center of mine for quite a while, and I am FINALLY ready to unleash my own little nugget of crazy-amazing awesomeness on the world, so you might wanna buckle up. If you’re not in a seat that has buckles, you should probably add some before we continue. I’ll wait…
Okay! Here we go. Let’s get started!
I’m Samantha. I’m a wife, a mom, a writer, a dreamer, a Libra, and… oh, yeah – I’m living with chronic illness. Life has thrown a lot at me, and it’s time to start throwing back. My mission here at Carter’s Cozy Nest is two-fold:
First, to help others who are living with chronic pain and illnesses to find coping strategies for flares, celebrate the good days, and come together in a community of people who can understand.
Second, to be real and authentic about the good days and the bad. In doing so, I hope to spread awareness of the realities of chronic pain and illness and help grow that community of understanding people to include more than just the spoonies. (More on what a spoonie is soon!)
Wondering where I got the name? Just sit right back, and you’ll hear a tale… get it? Anyone? Okay, sorry, back on track now:
In dealing with my health challenges, and trying to be the best and most involved mom I can in the process, I’ve learned that the number one key to minimizing my bad days, is comfort – thus, my cozy nest philosophy was born. By surrounding myself with comfort, I have discovered a way to live with things I never thought I could. So come on in, explore my nest, and most of all…
Keep it cozy!
