"I write because I am alone and move through the world alone. No one will know what will pass through me, and even more amazing, I don’t know… I write because I am crazy, schizophrenic, and I know it and accept it and I have to do something with it other than go to the looney bin. I write because there are stories that people have forgotten to tell, because I am a woman trying to stand up for my life… I write out of total incomprehension that even love isn’t enough and that finally writing might be all I have and that even that isn’t enough."
Natalie Goldberg, Writing Down the Bones
My anxiety’s been terrible lately. I had a pretty bad attack about two weeks ago? I’ve been trying to fight off having meltdowns and other bad thoughts. It’s getting tiring.
