Thank you 💜

Thank you for being the voice for those of us who are unable to effectively communicate the everyday struggle we have with our minds.
You’ve been the first person that has made me not feel alone.
I’ve always thought that we suffer sometimes so we can grow strong in certain areas and use that strength to help others.

brainbbbb ,

So excited for this

The preview made me weep with appreciation. I’m so looking forward to this. Thank you Honor Eastly, you make me feel so much less alone.
