See that’s the problem with restarting your life when the recovery process is still—well, in process.

The battle with my body is ongoing.
Right now, this moment, in these gross jammies, with my greasy hair, and my GIANT FREAKING SMILE, is the best I have FELT in years.
I am winding down my first semester back in school. I spend time at Roverchase, sometimes volunteering for the Roverchase Foundation. And I am officially announcing that this week I started my own business!
I’m okay. I’m fine. I’m good. And the thing is–I really am.

“Fight for the things that you care about, but do it in a way that will lead others to join you.” RBG did that. And she showed us how to do it too.

Are we friends? I hope we are.
