The last couple of months have been taxing, to say the least. Last week was no different, as I was placed on a 72-hour hold that turned into a 7-day hold at a psychiatric facility after having a psychotic break. I'm a freelance writer based in Los Angeles, and work has been extremely slow -- before my episode and still after. I'm healing a little more each day and am so very tired. Yet, I feel a sense of inexplicable clarity and peace -- something I've longed and fought for my whole life. And still, the material needs of one living in a capital, product-driven society have to be met. If you can give, I'd greatly appreciate it. If not, a share will do just as well.
