If it’s Monday this must be Kentucky.

Today is the fourth stop on my book tour for YOU ARE HERE: An Owner’s Manual for Dangerous Minds and I am in Louisville, Kentucky.  They can’t fit us all in the bookstore so it’s going to be at the Tim Faulkner Gallery.  There is a ticket fee since they have to rent a gallery.  Click here for info.

Come see me.  Please?

It’s 7pm at Tim Faulkner Gallery.

Next stop?  Pennsylvania!

    I pulled a mouse skull out of a filter at work today and thought of you. In the best possible way. But it was an aquatic exhibit, so the skull gross and wasn’t worth saving, although I did consider it.

    Jenny, I just got my book in the mail!! I’ve already laughed and cried! Life has been so HARD since my mom died last May and things have just gone downhill. But this book brings me hope and an anchor and a connection to myself that I needed to find. Anxiety and depression suck. But I’ve got an amazing nine year old son and life is going to get better. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. I love you from afar! (And not in a stalker way, just a wish I knew you IRL way). You and this book and your other books are amazing!!!!!

    Hi Jenny. Was having a mad panic attack today that I couldn’t do all the things and I didn’t know why I ever thought I would be able to… and then the mail man arrived with your book… and I opened it up and it said I would get through this. And I thought, hell yeah, I damn well will! So thank you, all the way from New Zealand. XXX

  48. Well, aren’t the people of Louisville lucky? Since I’m now in New Zealand (and I don’t think you’re coming here) and the odds of your hitting my little town in rural Manitoba, Canada this summer, I’ve just had to go online and order the book that way. It will be such a nice treat waiting for me when I get home!!

    As an aside, I had a rough day yesterday with black thoughts and tears. At one point, I did think of you and this merry (and not so merry) band of weirdos here, and I actually took comfort knowing that I wasn’t the only one floating in blackness at that moment. Thanks for that!

  58. Jenny –

    Thank you.

    I went through a really rough patch at the beginning of February and immediately had a pretty significant med change as a result. After that, things were good. Really good. Scary good. Scary because having had the diagnoses of major depression and generalized anxiety disorder since 2011, I KNEW that the good wasn’t going to last forever, and that, most likely, the good would come to a very abrupt end as the result of a sudden downswing in my mood and a sharp increase in my anxiety. Well, that downturn occurred around 7:50pm (CT) this evening. I just received You Are Here in the mail from Book People (I got a signed copy – yay!). I bought a coloring book specifically for Mindfulness about a year ago, and I think I have spent a total of 30 minutes coloring in it – I just never really got into it. I read all of You Are Here last night, so when I started to feel poorly a few hours ago, the obvious answer to my negative feelings was to color in one of your wonderful drawings. I became overwhelmed by trying to pick out which one to start with, so I decided to just start at the beginning. It worked. I’ve spent probably the past hour and a half coloring and listening to music that seemed the most appropriate for the situation – something that is fairly melancholy/heavy but is also extremely beautiful and soulful (Lana Del Ray).

    The products of your anxiety (your amazing sketches/drawings) have helped me SIGNIFICANTLY! Thank you for being courageous enough to not only share your story but also your drawings, which I imagine are kind of a more vulnerable sharing for you.

    Again, thank you.

  61. My friend came to your signing in KY and slipped you my number because we don’t have boundaries. My husband said, “Don’t expect the woman with social anxiety to call you.” I said, “Ha, I could never answer the phone because my crippling postpartum anxiety has me busy cleaning and imagining all the ways the house could fall down around us.” I can only communicate by text and through notes in cognitive behavior therapy workbooks.

    I like knowing that you’re out there doing amazing and imperfect things when most everyone else only shares their fake perfect side.
