I talk honestly and openly about my experiences with mental illness, fibromyalgia, and chronic fatigue syndrome through the lens of feminism, fat acceptance and process theology. I also do recipe and book reviews. My mission is to spread the message that hope is always real for a better life, despite living in a world that is often very harsh.

Children Mental Health Day 2016

I offer the radical nature of honesty and the intense humanity that is found in seeking truth freely apart from the authoritative pronouncements of yesterday. (spong, Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism, 21)  
I won't be able to attend children's mental health day at the Atlanta Capitol but as its for a good cause, I thought I would let y'all know about it.   Host: Rheba Smith 404-758-4500 Thursday, May 5 9am-12:30pm The GA Freight Depot (65 Martin Luther King Dr. NW, Atlanta 30303)
