About the Blogger

Hi, I’m Sara. I’ve worked in corporate America for almost 15 years, and I’ve worked the last eight years with Functional Neurological Disorder (FND). My FND comes with paroxysmal dystonia, chronic fatigue, brain fog, sensory overload, muscle pain and more. Please see my symptoms page for more information.

Thanks to my FND, I’m only able to work part-time at the moment. In addition to being a part-time career woman, I’m also a mom of two young children and a wife to a real life Kung Fu Panda. FND has definitely thrown a wrench in my life, but I try to live the best life I can given the cards I’ve been dealt with.
