“My sickness is there when I look in the mirror. It is not all that I am, but it is an inexorable part of me. I am finally beginning to accept that. Which is to say, I am learning to accept the world in all of its contradictions and live as best I can within them.”
Clementine von Radics, “A Polite Way of Saying ‘Incurable’”
You know how they say “Be the person you would have needed as a teenager?”
I just got published by To Write Love On Her Arms, an organization that does amazing work to present hope for people struggling with addiction, depression, self injury, and thoughts of suicide.Their recourses were so helpful to me, and to be able to contribute was an honor.
Huge, HUGE thanks to my editor Claire Biggs and to TWLOHA for reaching out to me.
So much love and support and respect for Clementine! Read her whole piece here!
