One Rough Week

I’m not going to get into the details specifically. I will say that I’m in a fight with my whole family (I’m pretty sure) because they don’t understand mental illness (I don’t mean that as a slight, I just mean that it’s complicated and hard and I don’t blame anyone for that) and some other reasons. My new therapist broke up with me before we could have our second session. There is another retreat in France that I figured out how to afford but PayPal won’t take my money. And I self harmed for the first time in ages. I have a bit of a black eye and my chin/cheek are sore. I have scratches down my arms. Seriously, I’m leaving out all the big details. I will add that I’m doing a bit better and am not in danger. I have also been in touch with my therapist back in Chicago.

So rather than pretend I’m feeling great and writing a puff piece or going on a rant and sharing too much, I’ve decided to share a video that is THE KIND OF STORY WE NEED RIGHT NOW! It’s a piece from Seth Meyers about an 83-year-old woman in Japan who was recognized by the Guinness Book of World Records as the world’s oldest club DJ. It’s amazing, and inspiring, and just the kind of news I need right now! I hope you enjoy it!
