I receive many emails each day from supporters of mine who are struggling. I want more than anything to be able to help each person individually, but I have found that because I care about each of you SO DAMN MUCH, that oftentimes I end up becoming incredibly overwhelmed because I can't help but to absorb your pain.

I will continue responding to your emails, but if for some reason you need help/support sooner than I am able to give it -- I am making a list of cool resources that you might find helpful.

I am not affiliated with any of these in ANY way, and I receive nothing from any of them for mentioning them. I have just done a little digging to compile these so you don't have to, because I love your freaking FACE off.

You are never alone, I promise you that.

These websites make me happy when I'm feeling down. They don't know I exist and I'm not affiliated with them in any way. I just wanted to share because I love you.

goodnewsnetwork.org/ - For happy and positive news articles (for a change)

Happy News (Hero Stories) - Cool lil articles about everyday heroes!

You're Getting Old - Enter your birthdate and find out a bunch of fun facts about the day you were born. Cuz why the hell not. LOL.

TED - I love going here for insight, strength and inspiration.

Damn You Autocorrect - These just make me so happy for some reason.

Postsecret - I've been visiting this website since like high school. It's not for everyone. For some reason I am incredibly fascinated by the dark secrets of others. People anonymously mail a secret in, and they are oftentimes shocking, heartbreaking and some -- strangely relatable.

Awkward Family photos - enough said.

Pixelthoughts - a really cool 60 second meditation exercise.

  1. Hi,
    You had mentioned a week or so ago about things you do when you start to have an anxiety/panic attack. It was something called orbeez, you put your hands in them and something magical happens. I had to find out what this magic was and if it would work for me. I searched amazon for them and low and behold they appeared. I just received them yesterday and have some soaking. I am not sure how to proceed I am so enthralled with them! Thank you for the tips. I adore you.

  7. NAMI has warm lines. In missouri there is one called compassionate ear that takes over from 6 pm to 10 pm. Both are totally manned by volunteers who are vetted in peer counseling. I call when I’m anxious confused overwhelmed for grounding and perspective. If you need someone to talk to but you are not at immediate risk call NAMI and ask about this resource in your area

  8. Watched your you tube on “haters gonna hate” and in it you sing to your kids before bed, loved it! Your son sang a bit of “you are my sunshine”, and it just brought a flood of emotions to me, that’s what my mom sang to me, and I’m 60 yrs old, she passed away when she was younger, and I miss her every,every day so much! Just loved that vid, I get your feeds on my FB page about the cleaning products and said as soon as I started watching, you have so much talent to keep people laughing and keep it REAL! Keep it up, you’ll go far!
    Love Your stuff!!
