“You hold substance in my psyche”
Sarahbeth Purcell

“Mental imbalance is about as acceptable as herpes. It’s never going to be accepted. But really, it’s a disease just like cancer. It just happens, and eats away all the good parts of your brain, like judgment and happiness and perception and memory and life. And you can die from depression just like any other disease. And it’s not as if people choose it. So why is it still a joke of medicine? “She died of cancer.” is a lot more socially acceptable to people than “She committed suicide.”
Sarahbeth Purcell, Love Is the Drug

“I have to stop being young. I have to get jaded. I have to be cynical. I have to stop speaking. I have to be invisible. He likes things that don't really exist.”
Sarahbeth Purcell, Love Is the Drug

Jeremy Hi Sarahbeth!

If you don't mind sharing--I was wondering, what's your favorite novel of all time? Or novels?

Here’s wishing you a fantastic day filled with fabulous friendships, fanciful festivities, and frolicking phantom footstools.

Daniel Keep writing and writing and writing, Sarabeth . You may become another Margaret Mitchel; never can tell.
