Hey, I don’t know if you noticed but I disappeared for a bit. Things have been a bit rough here on my end. But relapse is okay. Relapse is normal. I’m mostly saying that because I need my own reminder.
On Tuesday, I had a really bad day. I ran out of a class because of a panic attack that was bordering on the line of a flashback I was fighting off. I came home a mess and found the new book by Jenny Lawson, The Blogess, waiting for me.
I am a huge fan of Jenny Lawson and credit Furiously Happy, her memoir about her mental health, to being a guiding hand in a very dark time for me. You Are Here is a beautiful coloring /quote /advice book. I found myself crying at the pages and feeling profoundly less alone in a moment I felt isolated in.
I wanna say thank you to Jenny Lawson. You have helped me learn to be okay with my sometimes dangerous mind. You give me hope and confidence in myself.
