Reaching out.

Yesterday I went to the post office and this happened:

I really am lucky in so many ways.

Several people said they wished that they could feel this type of love.  Several people said they wished that they could give this kind of love.

So why not?

If you want to send a card or note to someone who is a part of this community then check the comments.  If you want to receive a card or note from someone else then leave a comment with your address.  I’ll be sending a few myself because I know how wonderful it is to have an unexpected note reminding you that you are needed.

PS. This is a wonderful, trustworthy community but just to be on the safe side if you want to use your work address or your parents address or a PO box rather than your personal address that’s not really a terrible idea.  Totally up to you.

    With how crappy I have been feeling lately, I could use a pick me up. I’m tired of feeling like the world is burning down around me. My anxiety is making me miserable, I have surgery coming up to remove a faulty gall bladder and that is scaring the hell out of me. I’ve never had any serious medical intervention, ever.

  35. I have been having amped up anxiety, and the other night had the worst anxiety attack of my life in my best friends living room, surrounded by friends and sitting next to my mom.
    I am still struggling from it, as that created it’s own new anxiety that no place is safe. I sat on the floor at my mammogram and cried this morning, shaking, and then cried big giant tears during my blood draw.

    I am going to send some things out this weekend.

    I sent thank you and get well and atta-girl cards out to friends a couple of weeks ago — I though the cards were tacky but I did it anyway — my friends who received them were so pleased. I live in a pretty deep depression that twists everything I experience and makes every effort harder. But I know that every positive thing that I do adds positive energy to the world around me. So I keep going.

    Also I appreciate you and your blog very much.

  82. The other day on Etsy I came across a vintage wedding telegram from April 5, 1947. It was sent to a couple that were getting married at the Darlings Regent Hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland. The message said: “May your life be full of song, and your husband provide the notes. –Greta and Sid”. I had to have it. It’s kind of a silly purchase – I mean what am I going to do with a vintage wedding telegram? I’ve never even been married! – but I love the message and I think the practice of sending telegrams (especially for weddings, if you can’t be there in person) or even notes and letters is something we should reinstate. It’s a beautiful way to send happy wishes just for whatever reason, and it’s a little more personal than texting (altho reaching out to say I love you whatever way is always good).

    And I love this idea of yours, too! My aunt calls it “a good mail day” when she gets something other than bills in her box. I love giving people “good mail days” and spreading the love. I don’t even check my mailbox every day because there’s rarely anything worth looking at in there anyway, unless I’ve ordered something online. Email and texting has robbed us of the simple pleasure of checking the mailbox. Let’s get it back! 🙂

  91. Thank you for this! I will definitely send a few things out myself. I love being able to send snail mail and hopefully cheer someone up.

    That being said, if anyone would like to write me I could really use it right now as well. Mom is in early stages of dementia (best as us and her doctor can tell) and only in her mid 60s. She and I have always had a very close relationship and watching her not be herself is very difficult for me and Dad. Sister has lost her mind and is suffering some sort of mental illness that has made her extremely hateful and horrible to all those around her. She has cut off family and it is tearing up my parents. Plus we can’t see my nephew anymore. Our little family is splitting and it’s a mess. =( Add that to chronic illness and mounting financial issues at home for me, plus my own quiet demons with depression and low-level anxiety… I feel like I need to curl up somewhere and hibernate until things blow over. Unfortunately that isn’t life and I know it. At least I have an awesome puppy and husband at home to support and love me!

    I’m a poet, so if you have some poetry you love, I’d love to receive it! Or any note at all, of course.

    Maybe we should come up with a way of keeping track of which addresses are already picked by someone to receive a letter, that way everyone gets included. Could this be done by the intended sender “liking” the comment of the addressee they pick? That way everyone else knows to choose another one? I don’t know, just a thought.

    This idea is so cool by the way!

  126. Thank you, Jenny. I could definitely use some words of support. I always have a hard time in the winter when the sun goes away in Michigan. Everything seems so dark and hopeless. Thankfully, today is the Vernal Equinox so the light is returning, but if someone has positive energy to spare, I can surely use it!

  131. Jenny, you are amazing. I wish I had half the grace under fire that you do, but I don’t. I love your community, too; you always have the best comments. I will be sending, but would also like to receive. I have chronic depression, PTSD, and anxiety. I’m applying for disability, for physical and mental reasons. I have zero support system. I might be homeless in about six weeks. Something not a bill would be awesome to have in the mail. :::hugs to everyone who even thinks about participating in this experiment:::

  138. Is it OK to add my 13 year old niece? She came to live with us last year, after a not so great earlier childhood. She’s been battling depression and anxiety for at least 4 years. She was cutting, but fingers crossed it’s been two months without doing that.

    My partner tragically lost his big brother last year on New Year’s Eve. He has been struggling TERRIBLY with this loss and blames himself for not having done more to stop it from happening (despite the fact that it was out of his hands AND he had already done more than most sane people would have even attempted in his shoes). This morning he was sobbing uncontrollably about how much he misses his brother. Doug often feels like he’s not as important to the people around him as he truly is, and it breaks my heart. If folks could send a few letters his way , it would be MASSIVELY appreciated. He desperately needs to be reminded that he’s a good person who’s worthy of love right now.

I work really hard all day every day and yet I feel like a useless, ineffective failure. I do have an anxiety disorder so objectively I know that some of it is just my brain being terrible, but it’s still hard to get through the day sometimes. I could really use some notes to keep around me when I need a reminder that… wow, I don’t even know what. Just that I’m not terrible, I guess?

    Things have gotten tough again and it’s moments like this where I remember to smile 🙂

  240. I quit a horrible job recently and am really struggling with depression. I could use some cheerful mail.

    I’m going to try to send some too. Great idea.

  241. Since we’re spreading the love, if you know anyone in Nebraska or Iowa, I’d recommend reaching out to them this week to make sure they’re okay and so they know you’re thinking of them. There hasn’t been much on it in the national news, but we’ve basically spent the last week having our asses kicked by Mother Nature. Most of the people won’t complain (even if it’s really bad) but I’m sure they would appreciate the thought anyways.

    Thanks! Love this! Love Jenny! Love the Bloggess Tribe!

    I could definitely use some kind words since I’m dealing with a chronically sick puppy, having a job I enjoy but neither pays or supports me enough, two slowly dying grandparents, and big plans with my partner to take the next step in our relationship. It’s a really overwhelming time for me.

    My disability is about to be cut off and I’m pretty scared. I’m going to start working from home doing transcription but it won’t be the kind of money I’m used to, at least not for a while. Financial insecurity is terrifying, especially when you have so many (expensive) chronic illnesses.

Something I can hold on my bad days and know someone loves me because I can touch something tangible they sent me showing their love. I’m so excited to send some tangliblr encouragement and receive some. It’s been a really rough year so far.

  258. Just feeling the love all over this page and looking forward to sending some out;) love this gang!

  259. I’d love to do both!! I’m going to randomly pick a few to send.

  271. I am pretty stuck here at home 24/7 and really have no irl friends. My access to internet is limited to when my neighbor is not home, so life really sucks right now. I know depression lies, but boy, it hard to fight sometimes. And meds just don’t always seem to kick it to the curb. I would love some happy mail. It would even give me a visitor, as the postman bring my mail to the door. He’s so nice and knows I can’t get to the mailboxes. If you include your address , I will write back too !

  279. My sister and her wife adopted a dog last week on the 5 year anniversary of the loss of their son. It turned out Maddie was sick – used as a breeding dog all of her life, suffering from PTSD, organ failure, hip dysplasia and a myriad of other issues. She, out of love and kindness, had to put the puppy to sleep 4 days later. SHe was Maddie’s angel and the only love and kindness that puppy ever felt. Send a card to someone for her. She is my sister and my best friend and my heart aches for her.

    Not sure if you remember me, but I reached out to you at a low point years ago and you went above and beyond reaching out to me. LIfe has been up and down since then, but definitely on an upward swing most of the time. Unfortunately I was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 inflammatory breast cancer and the treatments have been pretty awful. Would love some get well and encouraging cards pls.

    I’m too paranoid to put my address out there, but if anyone could send positive thoughts to a random girl in Canada, I’m hoping that the gallbladder specialist I’m going to be seeing says that the polyp in there is totally nothing to worry about. Thanks!

    Also, loads of good thoughts going out to the people in the US having their butts kicked by nature. I hope nature is much kinder in future weeks. Hang in there.

    I think I need a reminder that the world can be good. I’ve been trying to cut out toxic people and focus on the good, but that has just left me alone, angry, and bitter. I miss my Mom, but she doesn’t miss me until she needs money, I miss my friends, but they dont need me so they dont miss me.

    Just realized I didn’t say anything about myself. It’s been a long, dark, cold winter in the Midwest and I’ve really struggled with depression and anxiety that was the worst its ever been. Paralyzed by fear – of growing older, of dying alone, of not being lovable, of kids growing up and leaving, you name it and I’ll have a panic attack over it. Hard to make sense of any of it and hard to stop the constant worrying. A cheerful little note to know I’m not alone would mean the world. Love to you all.

    2019 has been a dumpster fire year so far. The one bright spot was getting to hug David Tennant. Other than that, I would take a redo on life rather than redo the beginning of this year. And add that to still trying to deal with trauma from my past that I’ve only begun addressing in the past couple years, life has been one giant ball of anxiety and stress and depression in a never ending cycle. Jenny, knowing you and Wil and others like you are out there being open and talking about the things that affect you has helped me so much. I only hope that I can begin to see a light in the future.

    OMG! I love you all! Just knowing that I’m not alone in feeling the way I do gives me hope that someday (soon I hope) I will be able to feel happy again. Every morning I put on the mask and say the right words but all the time I’m dying inside. In my head I know it’s just the disease lying to me but in my heart, it’s still hard to keep moving. So in my heart and soul, I’m sending you all love and hope—-we’re in this together—-even if no one in the world knows or cares—-we know and we care—and that’s enough!

    Fantastic! Fabulous and awesome. I have anonymously sent out a couple letters then thought…why not include me, too? Lately, every time I open my mailbox, I curse a certain individual who took advantage of my generosity and owes me money, so it would be lovely to see something in there besides bills. (Okay, I let him take advantage…I actually curse myself for being so lame. Mamma told me not to lend money to friends.)

    I’ve been in a depression cycle for months now and I could definitely use some kind words. I lost my job in December and still have not found a new one; I had surgery on my foot in December as well, and currently, I am recovering from a rollover car accident last week that should not have walked away from. One positive of the accident is that it confirmed that I still want to be here (I wasn’t so sure anymore). I know I’ll eventually get through the depression and misfortune, but it’s hard to manage when the people around you don’t fully understand how you feel.

    After 20+ something years in therapy for all my mental illness issues (bipolar, agoraphobia, anxiety). I finally found an amazing psychiatrist who I had been seeing for the past 6 months. She listened so sincerely & made me feel hopeful. I was told she would be out of the office for an undetermined amount of time, but today was given the official notice she would no longer be available. I am devastated. I am from a small town & the choices are severely limited. I would love some words of encouragement while I sort through this. I would like to give my email if that is okay. I am a bit nervous about giving my address …

I have been having a rough time, my latest med came in at over $100 with the co-pay so I can’t afford it and I NEED it, the serious awful drama around me at my workplace (not caused by my assistant but by third parties in town who know him and me), and I have been living with the Sword of Damocles over my head of the next stroke (not if but when). I feel like I’m both too young and old for this shit.

My papaw loves gardening and being a pastor, though macular degeneration is really limiting his independence. You can reach them at:

    It is a wondrous and powerful thing; that at the moment you badly need concern and kindness, it comes from places you never, ever expected. It’s good to pay that forward.

  495. I hope I’m not biting off more than I can chew. I always send and rarely receive so I’ll add mine. I do love to send cards with un-used stickers in them. Adults love them as much as kids. Some times the cards I send are designed with stickers because they are blank inside because I have a BuJo and Junk Journal combined.

Now when I wake up, I can’t find a single reason not to go back to sleep. I feel like whatever I had to give is gone. I gave up my career for my family but know they have their own lives and I’m left adrift. I know kids leave the nest and it’s a good thing. But man am I lonely. Will send some cards. Would love to receive one.

  511. I could use some good wishes. First, though, I need to thank Jenny for brightening my birthday back in January. She truly cares about her people. Thank you Jenny for being here.

    The past few weeks you could say I’ve had a few difficulties. I’m all out of tears.

    I had a severe allergic reaction to pesticide spraying in my apartment. I had to live in a motel until it could be cleaned. Six days later I returned to find that the cleaning had not been done, except for a very soggy carpet. I was charged $1500 for this crook to soak my carpet.

    Two days later, I pulled up part of the (still damp) carpet when I saw red stains had developed. The subflooring is rotted and there is mold under the carpet. They found mold under the kitchen cabinets too. I’m deathly allergic to mold. I don’t know where I go while the entire apartment is remodeled. Or how I’m going to pack everything and put it into storage.

    I’m a recluse and have no friends. Agoraphobia destroys friendships. The only family I have is my mother who has alzheimer’s and lives in a nursing home.

    All of that is disturbing and disheartening, but worst of all, my beloved little dog had a stroke Monday night. I don’t know if it’s related to the chemicals or perhaps the mold, he’s only six years old. Good news is he’s alive and apparently not in any pain. He wobbles like a drunken sailor and his head bobbles up and down. But he still smiles, he’s still here. And so am I.

    As much as I’d like to have some mail myself, I’m too embarrassed to post my name and address. Instead I’m going to pick a couple of your addresses and hope I can add some good karma into the world.

    Thanks for letting me vent.

    I think I need to receive a note too because bad things befall children, even mine, requiring them to be braver than any tiny human should have to be- they are blind sighted with scoliosis and Celiac and depression and social phobia and I really REALLY need to hear I’m still a good mom even though I didn’t prevent and don’t have the power to prevent the difficult things they have no choice except to walk their path with support but ultimately alone because I can’t have the scoliosis or Celiac for them, though would if I.could

    If there is anyone out there still looking for people to send to – my friend Sara has been having a tough time with her two youngest children who are adopted and have attachment disorder. If you don’t know, basically this disorder happens when children are neglected, which happened before they were adopted. They spend all their time trying to prove they are unlovable, which means they can be horrid in order to prove they are not worthy of love. It’s devastating and so hard to live with. I think she could really use some support. I don’t dare put her address out there, so if you could send to me – I will give them to her.

I pre-ordered all your books in and had them all delivered to me in Taiwan because I’m housebound a lot. Your books lifted my spirits so much, and when I needed an extra laugh or two, there was always The Bloggess to visit. Sometimes I got through your old posts just because they made me laugh so hard.

    I send letters out all the time all around the world via a community of chronic illness bloggers. It’s a great way to show we are not alone. I’m happy to join your circle.

I deal with anxiety and depression like so many of you and for the last 2+ years when I have found socializing to be almost unbearable, I have been able to connect with so many great people through mail swaps. Some of them briefly and some of them for two years now. It’s been a life saver for me and I love to send mail art and funky pieces of mail on to make others happy too.

    I have been picking people out of the phone book for more than a year and sending a random postcard with a positive or uplifting message on it. I use the Pantone 100 Postcards set (with a pantone color, the name of the color, and the color number on it). I don’t know if it’s had an effect on anyone but me, but I really like picking the quotes and sending the postcard out with a little hope that it will brighten someone’s day.

    Looks like I need to buy a LOT of stamps! I typed out a message on my phone three times, but the first one I accidentally erased. The second one, I swiped, and it went away. The third one, I got a text, then it was poofed gone. Did I mention I am a little overwhelmed? So, I’m on my laptop because I need the Bloggess tribe right about now. After five years away from work due to taking care of my mom, and my kids, (cheaper than daycare), I’m trying to get back into electrical drafting/design work so I’m stressed out about failing everyone. My 13-year-old daughter is dealing with bullies, severe social anxiety, and coping with being LGBT in a town that is not known for its open-mindedness. I wish I could make everything better for her. I try. Moral support for both of us would be greatly appreciated.

  661. This is such a great idea! I’ll respond to anyone who writes me with pictures of my second best antidepressant (the pills win first!), my cat Noodle.

  675. Hi. This is a fantastic idea. I miss sending and receiving ACTUAL mail (the adverts are out of control!). Also, I moved across country last summer and have been struggling with sadness because I don’t have any of the tribes I had back east. No longer in my 20’s and a mother, wife and alpha dog, I find it much harder to make friends. I’ll be happy to send someone a letter or postcard if I could get one in return?

    Tomorrow is my 52nd birthday. It’s also my Dad’s birthday, and not one birthday has gone by without my mother reminding me that “it’s Dad’s day, too”. To top it off, I haven’t gotten a card or gift from my folks in the past 3 years. My mother has Bipolar Disorder and borderline Schizophrenia, and refuses to take medication for it, so that behavior is to be expected. My Dad will be getting a card from me tomorrow, though.

    With that being said, I’d love to receive a note or card from a “stranger”! I’ve also written down a few of your addresses and will be sending cards this weekend.
    My address is:

    misery & mayhem recently posted happy anniversary – remember, you chose this path with me.

  681. Thank you for doing this. It’s a fabulous idea. This should be an annual thing like Booksgiving. Notesgiving? AllTheFeelsGiving? We’ll work on the name. Sitting down to send out some cards over the weekend will be a lovely way to spend some time. And if anyone cares to send some snail mail my way it would be greatly appreciated.

  687. Jenny, every time I start to give up a little bit on the world you post something that starts a comment thread like this. I love coming here. I’m going to write a few postcards this weekend. Cheers, all you lovely people!

  688. Just to give you all a quick giggle, I’m sure you’ve all seen this book, BUT it is BRILLIANT!

  689. It’s easy to feel unloved and alone when you live inside your own head, as I do.

  690. I have a few cards ready to go today. Planning to send as many as I can. I want you all to know, right now, how important and necessary and loved you are. It’s overwhelming how much the universe needs you here. Sending you all every last bit of love in my heart.
