I would like to thank Stoning Demons (www.stoningdemons.wordpress.com ) for nominating me for this award. Please check out her site, particularly if you are dealing with PTSD or know someone who is. You will find it well-written, thought provoking, and organized, the latter of which is always a huge plus. Thanks again to Stoning Demons.
I am supposed to write six things about myself so here goes, in no particular order: I am a wife, mother of two sons, one a lawyer and one with a mental illness (schizo-affective disorder) which, so far, keeps him from working. I also have had a life-long battle with depression and migraines. As a result of my backround, I am a staunch advocate for better treatment for people with mental illnesses. I love to read, am a fan of everything from the 1940s, including music and films. I love cats (I have two) and I have curly toes. I probably wrote more than six things, but so what?
I am passing on this award to Quantum Physics because she is very versatile and writes so well on an innumerable number of subjects including mental health. Her website is: www.wereallmadinhere.wordpress.com .
