She wrote: "When I was at my lowest I often avoided mirrors. When I would catch my reflection, I rarely recognized myself.
"I knew it was me, logically, but I didn't know, love or feel comfortable with the person that I saw. I could not identify with the woman I saw. My identity was diffuse."

"Now when I look in the mirror I see me, I'm mostly proud & happy with the reflection and I'm able to turn outward and give energy and love to others because I have settled in my sense of self.

She concluded: "For those of you that ordered my book “A little closer to home” - publishing has had a system-wide issue & it will be out in January!"
