This just in:

I have been in bed all day with an unknown illness which I suspect is due to a kidney stone which has slipped down into my bladder. I’m running a fever, my lower abdomen and back are painful, and I’m avoiding food like the plague. I’ll be back when I’m feeling better. Thanks for being here.

A Bit Of Melancholy On A Sunday Afternoon ~ Fire and Rain

This has always been one of my favorite James Taylor songs, and with the learning of a very good and long-time friend’s serious illness, I have been a bit melancholy as of late.  Filed under: acceptance, Illness, life, lost in head, memories, people you will love forever, sadness Tagged: Best Friends, Illness, James Taylor, Melancholy, […]

Writing Updates

I have great news!

Over the past few weeks I've contacted about a dozen publishers.  I've heard from three: Glamour Magazine, CNN, and the Huffington Post.

I submitted Op-Ed's to The New York Times, NPR, CNN, and the Huffington Post.

I wrote about the following: the need for bilingual mental health workers, the link between creativity and mental illness, the misconception that the mentally ill are violent, and how to recover from a hospitalization. They're all really good, if I must say so myself! I'll be sure to post them on my blog once they get published.

I should know in two weeks if the newspapers will be publishing my writing.

The last great news is that the Huffington Post has invited me to be a blogger for their website! I'm going to see if I can blog simultaneously on here and the Huff Post. If I can't, it'll be double the work to create two blogs.

Technical Difficulties

I’m just going to apologize for lack of posting.

I was going to start posting again this week, but then things happened.

Namely — my computer crashed. So until I get it back, I won’t be able to post anything.

I’ll be back once I get my computer up and running again. But for now I’m on a mini-hiatus.
