I love how I get to be in the comfort of my home, doing the thing that I want and actually earn from it. I may not be the highest paid employee out there but I consider this as a great blessing — a treasure, even.

For a long time, I was better. Maybe it was the counseling. Or the meds. Or the cocoon of safety my family provided me.

Whatever it was, it didn’t matter because I was better.
