Article in Tallahassee Woman and being brave

That article is out now in the Feb/March issue of Tallahassee Woman. Big thanks to Justin for interviewing me. I appreciate it!

I'd typed this light-hearted silly blog, but I deleted it. Instead, I've been thinking a lot about this post at Stephanie Kuehnert's blog. Steph, hope you don't mind that I'm linking to it. But I couldn't ignore it and not comment on it. Steph, my fellow Teen Fiction Cafe sister, is a brave, amazing woman. Just go read her post and you'll see. I'm just so impressed with Stephanie for going for it and blogging about something intensely personal that she'd been through. Her post will no doubt help girls and women going through similar situations.

And I because I'm not as brave as Steph, I'm moving the rest of this post over to LiveJournal and am locking it. I was squirming too much to write it here. Sorry! If you're on my super f-locked friends list, you'll be able to read it. I hope to unlock it later.

Thanks!

Have you ever felt like you just couldn’t get out of bed? Not the occasional morning, but every day? Do you find yourself listening to a voice in your head that says “you’re not good enough,” “not good looking enough,” “not thin enough,” or “not smart enough”? Have you ever found yourself unable to do homework or pay attention in class unless everything is “just so” on your desk? Everyone has had days like that, but what if you have them every day?

You’re not alone. Millions of people are going through similar things. However issues around mental health still tend to be treated as something shrouded in shame or discussed in whispers. It’s easier to have a broken bone—something tangib…
