Dear John,I need to write you a letter of thanks. Though we’ve swapped emails for years with snarky jokes and little life updates, it’s time I thanked you. Truly.I was a soprano who smoked constantly, swore all the time, and wore inappropriate clothing to my auditions. Yet you saw someone who could do something, who could make something of herself...

I’m trying hard to work past that feeling, and this is step one.I didn’t...

I become hypersensitive and I end up second guessing my thoughts, feelings and actions.When my mood dips too low, I can even experience suicidal ideation. I always work my hardest to...

Summer started with a bang for me the first of June.My husband and best friend had a stroke. He’s ok. No lasting physical damage, but there are certainly some psychological ones we are both trying to manage.If I’m honest, it’s mostly me that’s dealing with the psychological aftermath and he’s dealing with how my dealing is not being dealt with...

Common people do not have a monopoly on feeling hopeless and suicidal. It can happen to anyone, including celebrities.When a depressed Sinéad O’Connor sequestered herself in a New Jersey motel room in 2015, crying out for help in a 12-minute YouTube video, it was out of desperation. But the reactions from people on the internet were extreme....
