Countdown: Two Days Till GRAPEMO

A solitary space.

Phone turned off and tucked out of sight.

Coffee, tea, or soda at hand...maybe a bowl of munchies.

Soft background music...or sweet silence.

A dog, a cat, or slippers on your feet.

Peace and quiet.

Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Psychosis can happen out of the blue, to anyone, and no one knows why. Not even the best doctors on the planet.

And that’s why Mom is always so afraid. If we don’t know what made me sick in the first place, how can anyone guarantee I won’t flip out again?”
Jeannine Garsee, The Unquiet

“Accept what you can’t change, and change what you can. It’s easier than you think.”
Jeannine Garsee, Before, After, and Somebody In Between

“This is exactly who I was meant to be.”
Jeannine Garsee, Before, After, and Somebody In Between
