    I can’t even tell you how timely this is. I was preached at by someone today (whom I thought I could trust) about how these drugs are bad and fake and all I needed to do was snap out of it and smile!

    You’re awesome. Psychic even. Thank you. I love you.

    that really was beautiful and well-written. it’s sad that in our society, admitting to depression can trigger even more of it. her confidence, without defensiveness, was refreshing.

    I’m happy it was on target! I was hoping you either had seen Heather’s post already, or that it would be just the thing for you to read.

    Dakini turned me on to Heather’s blog. She’s an awesome lady, and although I don’t read everything she writes, I check in periodically. She has a small daughter and writes about Leta all the time, which inspires me to write about my kids. (It’s so easy to forget how they were because I’m trying to cope with how they are now.) Heather is bold as brass, as the saying goes. I believe her website is her “job.”

    Yes, we have a fucked up view about what drugs are OK to take and what aren’t.

    Nice to hear from you!
