About and Contact
I am a yoga teacher, I am a lawyer, and I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder in 2013. Every day brings new adventures and challenges for me. Some days, the challenge is something awesome, like climbing a rock wall or learning a new yoga pose. Some days, the challenge is getting out of bed. I want to share my stories of anxiety and of other things I do and love. I don’t have it all figured out, but maybe we can figure it out together.
So what’s the story behind the name cupcakesarenice? I started using twitter in law school, and I used my full name to tweet. I decided that when I went out into the “real” world (whatever that means), I should probably care about my privacy a little bit more. I was studying for finals when I decided to change my twitter handle, and I was also eating a LOT of cupcakes as I studied. I decided that cupcakesarenice would be an appropriate name. Looking back, those sugary treats were a way for me to deal with stress, and this blog is about how I deal with anxiety.
I’m married and I have two dogs. My husband and my dogs are two of the best medicines for anxiety I have.
