  1. Congratulations! I would love to be involved with something like this. I’ve been having troubles in my life and I finally decided to start a blog about it having to do with mental illness and sharing my experience with it and how to cope. please check mine out I’d think you would find it very interesting!

  2. Thank you so much, I will send you an email right away so I don’t lose track of your email address.

    Yes I am much better, although still a bit weak.

    About the Hemingway quote: I believe people like you and me have to go far beyond opening up a vein and bleeding. In our case, it’s more like doing open heart surgery on ourselves, without anesthesia.

    When I was a student nurse, I stood on a footstool at the head of a patient and observed a triple bypass surgery from start to finish. So I know what open heart surgery looks like, and really, that’s what this feels like!

  3. Oh my gosh, I hope you are feeling much better! There is some wicked stuff going around right now. Get good rest!
    Yes, writing a memoir is so hard. I think people have the illusion that its a piece of cake. I love the quote by Henningway: there is nothing to writing, you just sit at the typewriter and bleed. With the kind of memoir you (and I) write it can be excruciating. As you take a break from blogging and feel like you want to connect for writing support and cheerleading feel free to email me. I needed lots of “you can do it” support in the process. The one thing I always kept in mind is that even if Im the only one who reads this, my truth is told. Sending you blessings my friend. Take good care! 💕

  4. This is a great reminder, I need to update my membership, too.

    I wanted to let you know that I mentioned you in this post, as being an inspiration to me:

    I hope and pray I can get my memoir finished quickly, because I am taking a break from blogs until that huge job is done, and I really miss my blogging friends. Writing a memoir is so HARD. But I keep telling myself, “If Alexis can do it, I can do it!” 🙂
