First of all, I’d like to thank you for visiting my site! My name is Caitie and I’m just a regular human trying to live my life the best that I can. Having uprooted my post-college life in Massachusetts, I now live with my moms along with my kitty sidekick, Albus. I’m 25 and currently working as a mental health worker at a residential treatment facility for kids to get by but I have bigger and better things in mind!
For those of you who have been around since the beginning, things have changed a bit! Just a Girl and Her Cat has been transformed into Mental Health on a Whim! For those of you just joining my journey, welcome!!
Mental health has always been a prominent topic in my life. Though it wasn’t until I found myself in an abusive relationship and built up the courage to leave that I realized how truly important it is to take care of my mental health and implement self-care into my daily routine.
On the other hand, another topic that has stood out in my life is fantasy. My love for all things Harry Potter and Disney is a part of me that I display for all to see. I have been called childish for it, but I couldn’t care less. I believe that everyone could use some whimsy in their life, no matter how old you are!
If my experiences, personal or professional, can help just one person better their own mental health, then I will be happy! I encourage all who visit my site to contribute by commenting on blogs that resonate with them in any way. I understand feeling uneasy about putting out a public comment. If that is the case, send me a private email here!
