I'm a 55 year old psychiatric nurse (who is addicted to MissMatched socks). I'm so impressed that Yeardley could tell us about her history of bulemia which is such a problem for women and often such a source of shame. I hope her sharing can help others. I also love the quote which starts, "I've decided I need to be braver..." I'm trying to be braver in my own life: everything from going (after 30 years of long hair) to an extremely short haircut, to speaking up where I work about staff who are not always respectful to the psychiatric patients, to riding a zipline in Honduras over a 150 foot waterfall! By the way, I've been watching The Simpsons since the beginning and have never missed an episode--my boyfriend and I agree that it's the best show on TV.


You are brave! 150 foot waterfall? Wowsa!!! And thank you for loving my socks.

Here's a poem about fear by Emily Dickinson that I love. It helps me be brave:

WHILE I was fearing it, it came,
But came with less of fear,
Because that fearing it so long
Had almost made it dear.
There is a fitting a dismay, 5
A fitting a despair.
’T is harder knowing it is due,
Than knowing it is here.
The trying on the utmost,
The morning it is new, 10
Is terribler than wearing it
A whole existence through.

Hey, great interview! I'll be looking for the book. If you have a chance to contact YS, would you let her know that PKW from writing class is trying to get in touch with her?
