Life’s Strange Turns

Dear (and I mean that as literally and sincerely as I know how to mean it) friend:

My medical recovery is coming along, and I am typing this note with much less pain than I formerly had to endure.  Thank you for your prayers and kind thoughts!

I’m happy to say, the rich content will resume, ASAP!

Only the “As Possible” part of “As Soon As Possible” (ASAP) has been hindered again.

I may or may not move to another state in the next little while.  This move, if it happens, will disrupt my day-to-day schedule, heavily, and my ability to engage in this website (my passion, and what I would spend most of my time on, had I no bills to pay), in the short term.

I love you, and I want so badly to be able to engage with you in this positive and healing environment.  I will never abandon you, nor this cause. If you stick around, so will I.

But damn, it gets tricky sometimes, juggling all these responsibilities.  Thank you for understanding.

Comments are welcome, as are contributions.  If you’d like to publish a note, and article, a recipe, or what have you, please do be in touch.

Much love,

  1. We will be here! 🙂
    Sending you love, luck, and blessings during this rocky phase!!!

  2. Hello Alyssa,
    Good luck as you re-organize your life in the weeks to come.
    I stumbled upon two articles that reminded me of your book & your habit of weighing yourself daily, which then brought me to your website. I read these and laughed, “Alyssa was right!” Ever since I read your book I have seen more and more data validating what you did. Thank you for writing TRYIS! 🙂

    • That is awesome!!! Thank you so much for your kind note. If I never heard back from people like you, I would never have written the book nor tried to keep going after the Tumblr incident. You’re the best! 🙂
