Hey, I'm Amanda, I'm 36, live in Northern Illinois with my boyfriend, his mom and our 10 cats and dogs! I suffer from Fibromyalgia, severe Osteoarthritis in my knees, ankles and lower back, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Bi-polar Disorder type 2, severe depression, anxiety, seasonal affective disorder and many other things. In spite of all of this, I am a very strong, positive, happy person. I try to find the good in things, and sometimes it's easier than others. I love to cook, bake, read, knit, swim and update Pinterest. I can usually be found surfing the internet, researching something for the Illinois Ghost Hunters or creating something.
