World Mental Health Day

I felt like, with mental health, both good and bad, defining a huge portion of my life and identity I needed to post today. I thought about posting all of the bad things that had happened when I was at my worst, the way I'd been treated by people I thought cared about me, the…Read more World Mental Health Day

It's been horrendous, graphic and emotionally haunting for all of my family and friends that…Read more The Trump/Clinton paradox
