----Me2/ strives to eliminate stigma around mental illness

Which it cannot do so long as it maintains there is one.

Re: “Bess O'Brien Doc Gives Voice to Eating Disorders

Gob bless you all. I struggled for 20 yrs with bullemia. Up to 12 times a day. Im lucky to be alive, and even 1 year later after finally overcoming this disease i found out i was 29 weeks pregnant with my son. I was 32 yrs at the time and my husband snd i together since i was 20. Told at 21 yrs ild i couldnt have children and i wanted 15 kids i told my husband. Still wished i couldve. But god knew what he was doing. I was able to have one more son . Both healthy beautiful healthy adults now whom i adore . Im 55 and know that evetyday is a blessing here on earth. Everyday is still a struggle but i just have to remind myself of the hell i lived everyday throwing up and hiding it and at 12 times a day it was hard. Most days i just ate everything in sight and threw up all day long. Its caused allot of health problems from heart attack at 40 to always having dental work done. To hating myself and hoping i would die everyday if i couldnt stop. How did i recover!? I almost died . I had 3 bleeding ulcers and didnt know it. They cut me open and now have a 12 inch scar on my stomach in 1991 and couldnt move out of bed for 3 weeks. That gave me my first break. All the rehabs i was in didnt help at all. I was in 4 different ones. It has to come within i think. Or i was just so tired of the shame i felt. I couldnt go on anymore. It feels so good every morning to wake up and know im not going to go through that hell everyday. My boys when born i think gave me allot of strength also. I didnt want to miss one day of seeing them grow times of my life were and still are with my family. Cant wait till my grandchildren come.! God bless . Know it can be overcome. I didnt think it was possible but it truly is... My heart goes out to you all.

Re: “New Silo Murals Link Jeffersonville's Past and Future

We traveled from Waterbury to Jeffersonville to see the Silos.....while we were there an elderly couple drove in. They asked how far had we driven and I asked them the same. They had driven from Bomoseen. They were as amazed as we were of the beauty and the artistry and talent the silos showed. Jeffersonville residents should certainly thank them....A job well done.

Re: “Talking Addiction and Healing in New Play by Maura Campbell

Maura Campbell's plays are consistently insightful, hilarious, and powerful. Plus, she has an unmistakable writing voice that's always a joy to witness. Looking forward to this staged reading.

The E-9 crew does an amazing job creating a real world crisis. The company is run by former Marines who care about veterans and this country. Great hire State of Vermont.

Re: “'A Vermont Romance' Makes Film History

Interestingly, the ending paragraph does come with an answer. Jerry Hunt continued to live and raise a family in Derby Line, with many family members still living in the Northeast Kingdom. - Don Hunt

Re: “A Saint Mike's Student Hosts Trashy Exhibit

Really cool and a great visual way to tell a story that so many of us wish we didn't have to think about. I wonder if Judson will start cutting back on his trash based on this experiment?We are attempting zero waste this year so food packaging is a huge part of what we avoid in order to produce very little trash each month. Once you start eliminating disposables, it's hard to go back. ~Meredith (
