I have always been very type A. I like schedules, concrete reasons, and plans. When I was little, I kept a notebook specifically for lists: lists of groceries, lists of summer activities, lists of books. Each list was color-coded and had a key to it. In fifth grade, was so worried that I would be … Continue reading I Made Plans and Life LOL’ed
I had a conversation yesterday with a very dear friend, with whom I spent time in residential treatment in high school. Both of us are confidently on the road to recovery, but yesterday was a day when we felt overwhelmed and frustrated by this illness.
