On Being Scared but doing things anyway (Summer Party at The New Craft House)

One of the really crappy things about my mental health issues is that I’m so risk adverse. So afraid of taking chances. Of making mistakes. Of doing something new.

I started blogging to talk to people about my health issues as I’m not yet ready to discuss them in a more public arena. (Yes I’m aware of…
