Hi, friends. On January 16, 2017 I lost my dear friend, Katherine Ray, to suicide. It has devastated me. I know I haven't been blogging much—or at all, really—in the last year. But I've maintained an active presence on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. However, after Katherine's death, I am taking a complete sabbatical from the Internet in order to grieve. Please be assured that I am taking good care of myself and receiving the love and support of family, friends and the amazing mental health professionals in my life.
You can always reach me by email (my address is available on the CONTACT page). I don't know when/if I'll return to blogging. I'm sure I'll return to Facebook and Instagram at some point but until then, I need a good, long rest. If you're looking for a specific topic regarding cults, spiritual abuse, fundamentalism, purity culture and my journey to freedom, all my old posts are available by topic on this site's ARCHIVES page. If you'd like to stay in touch with me and/or stay updated with books I'm reading, published articles and any other good stuff I may write about, please also subscribe to my newsletter (sign-up box in the sidebar).
Lastly, I'd just like to thank everyone who has read my blog these last 10 years. It has been an incredible, life-changing journey. I am so grateful you found me and I found you. Please do stay in touch.
Much love, EE
