Dear Karen,

I admire your strength and courage. I listened to your last interview and I am encouraged to get to know all of me by journaling and taking time out for myself. In the last two months I have completely finished one journal and reflect back making comments and highlighting moments of accomplishments. Do you encourage people to write and read back what they have written or write and not re-read? You are a awesome healer. Bet you din’t know that!

Love you,


Dear Margaret,

Thank you for your kind thoughts and compliments! I’m glad to hear that you journal. Journaling has been a part of my healing and has enabled me to move forward. I think of writing in my journal as venting my emotions on paper. I let my thoughts flow freely and never re-read my words unless there’s a need to. Most of the time I would write in my journal and once I filled it, I’d turn it over to Dr. Baer for safekeeping. Much of what I’d written in my many journals helped with the writing of Switching Time. Dr. Baer is holding onto thousands of my written pages.

I encourage everyone to write. It’ gives me an amazing feeling of freedom. Writing helps you let go and understand your past.  Keep on writing and know that moving forward, with an occasional look back, can be the most fulfilling experience.

Wishing you all my best!
