serious interlude

I am not feeling very humorous right now.

I just want to make sure that you all know that I do not have the authority to speak to other people's experiences of mental illness, including your own. I do not have the authority to say "we" when I talk about how I experience my own illnesses. You may identify with what I have to say or you may not, but here is what is key:

It is not hopeless. No one is a lost cause. Things can and will and do get better.


  1. It took me a minute to realize this was out-of-character. Seconded.

  2. Thank you for your sincerity and kind words.

  3. Non-ironic hugs to you, Judith. I'm okay and hope you are, too.
