Another fan was moved to write a lovely tribute saying, “This was so well done. I haven’t been bullied but I deal with anxiety every day. Some of the things said I’ve either thought or experienced. I would never end my life or leave my friends and family without me in their lives.”
“I have generalized anxiety disorder and am seeking treatment including starting meds after my annual physical next week. Also resuming counseling at end of Mach ~ on wait list for an earlier appointment if possible. New therapist & counseling services than what I had from June- September 2020. It’s a good thing. 🙂 keep doing this. Love you ❤.”
