My Fears and Anxieties from A to Z: Part II

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Yesterday, I presented a list of my fears from A through M. Many different types of fears made the list — from the more serious (like anxiety itself) to the more whimsical (like joke-telling). Now, here are the rest of my alphabetical anxieties.


My Fears and Anxieties from A to Z: Part I

Monday, October 24th, 2011

Monday, October 10th, 2011

Awareness is cheap. It’s a simple way to feel like you’re advancing a cause…even when you aren’t. Today is World Mental Health Day and I sincerely hope you join me in doing something positive today for someone else’s mental health or well-being.
