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.

Resources for Anxiety

Yet God is not simply the destination, but one who is known on the journey.  It is a journey from the life of bondage to life in the presence of God.  (Marcus Borg, Meeting Jesus Again For The First Time, 125)
You can substitute the word, wellness, for God, if you want.  I am on a journey towards wellness and to help me on my journey, I bought several workbooks yesterday that deal with PTSD and other forms of anxiety.  I figure that since I have some extra time on my hands, that it should be useful.  I am posting yesterday's gratitude list because I thought people might be interested in some of the resources.

helped me in other ways)

The ordinance changes the penalty in the Atlanta Municipal code for possession of marijuana less than an ounce from the “general penalty” –which is a fine of up to $1000 and up to six months in jail–to a maximum fine of $75 and no jail time.
The legislation had been held since May. A key fact presented during the debate is that in Atlanta, the overwhelming number of arrests for marijuana-related offenses are African Americans (92%), even though studies have determined usage is at similar levels across racial demographics.
