  1. Laura, Please see the “Praying for Casey Anthony” page on Facebook. I felt exactly the same as you, literally. I had people who are Christians hating also, so disappointed in some of our brothers and sisters. I like you, was not there at Caylee’s death, or the trial. How so many people in our society believe they know her guilt is undeniably insane to me. I am going to be praying for her, her attorneys and the jury.

    Thanks for your blog –

    1. I’ll check out that Facebook page, Morgan. I’m thankful to have had such a positive response to this post and to know that others are praying for this young woman.

  2. The more I read your blog, the more I get “the feel” that you’d be great in the academic world (specifically college). Have you ever thought of teaching college level writing classes, Laura????

    1. I’ve never thought about teaching writing classes. If I were going to teach, I’d want to teach either writing or literature. But I don’t think I have the energy levels to do that right now. Maybe when my kids are in college!

      1. Teaching DOES take energy, so I’m glad you’re mindful of that and know what you CAN and can NOT do…..when and if you choose to go that route, I think you’ll be good…you have a strong love for the written word and I think your students would learn a lot from you because you have a passion….any way, just a thought……maybe in your “old age”, eh?? 🙂

  3. Came across your blog. I have a family history of bipolar, & prayed (not literally I’m atheist) that it wouldn’t happen to me after seeing it occur to my grandfather, & father, & cousin. At 32 I had my first manic break, destroyed my life & have spent four years piecing it back together. In the meantime during what leveled off into hypomania after spending my whole life anxious & depressed; I mustered up the ability to double major in a BA, get a graduate certificate, an MA, start graduate work at Harvard, & get multiple certifications in internet technologies. This accomplished in 4 years & I’m finding that my disease has me at odds with every job opportunity that arises. I can’t hold anything for more than a few months, & my resume looks like a total mess. Recently I decided to come out to an employer about my bipolar & was immediately given a review of performance which seemed more than alittle staged. We are smart, we are wanting to contribute, but sometimes we are total messes. We need a society that understands that sometimes the most creative, talented, & energetic of us are that way because we are also the most in pain, easiest to fall apart, & needing of time to put ourselves back together again. It’s just tough when you are legitimately bipolar.

    1. Michael, thanks for sharing your story, even as painful as it is. I wish society as a whole could recognize that we (bipolar folks, as well as other mentally ill people) are valuable, have valuable things to contribute to society, and to understand (and accommodate!) our unique needs.
