Yeah, I finally got a chance to read it. I really like how well you do the cut-and-paste and it makes my photoshop job look amateur. I really need to give your style a shot when I make mine. Your articles gave me a lot to think about for sure. There's too much to mention here but 'Short Hair=Strength' was something I never thought about. I ended up watching a 1950's version of Cinderella where she had super short black hair. She was a rebel in that movie too which reminded me of the connection you made. Anyhow, I'm sorry I sent mine out late. I really hope you like it

Hey, I got your zine and it was just in time! I spent forever in the line at the post office so I had something to read while everyone else stared at Doug the post-man. Chumps!

Nice to see you here too :-)
Sure, I'd love another trade. The issues that are up for a trade are issues 3 through 9. Unfortunately, 10 is not up for a trade because I am trying to raise money with it for the local Rape Crisis Center in my city.
You can check out excerpts from the issues here: www.fallopianfalafel.com.
Let me know!

Thanks! Your zine was fantastic! I read the whole thing today and empathize with a lot of what you say in it. Very well written too. I couldn't do that much writing without boring someone. You did a great job. Nice meeting you and hope we meet again when I have more time. : )

Hi! Well, I guess I'm really going to try to get this Orlando Zine party going. I emailed a zinester in Orlando and let her know. If you know of any good venues and/or perfect bands please feel free to let me know. Or if you have any advice at all (I must admit, I've never made it to a zine fest before) I could use the help. You can email me anything. Also, relatively unrelated - I'd love to trade sometime if you can able to find anything of mine that may pique your interest. Thanks!

In answer to your inquirty about how I got involved in mental health...Well, as you've already seen from my post, I was diagnosed with disorganzied schizophrenia (now there's a Freudian term) at age 14, although I was not told this until I reached age 17. I actually think this was good for me because a lot of people that know their diagnoses right away tend to focus on it too much and let it ruin their lives. I've seen and witnessed this. I tend to be optimistic for my age regarding mental health. At age 18 I was hospitalized for a brief time and my diagnosis was changed to bipolar. Shortly thereafter I switched to Medicaid insurance (public service provider) and got my first case manager. I stayed in a group home for a year, and at age 21 lived on my own for my first time ever. A lot has happened in the last 10 years since, but that's pretty much the story of how I was "initiated."

Hello, friend! My experience in the mental health system is a long one, so maybe we can get into that later. In regard to your second question (about mental health zines) I have a few (actually several) answers. One: check out cvabonline.com. This is the website for Consumer Voices Are Born, an advocacy and drop-in center here in Clark County, Washington. It also has its own newsletter called "The Voice" which I am a regular contributor--look for Kessler's Kolumn--you can download it for free on Adobe Acrobat. Two: I live just a few miles adjacent to Portland's Independent Publishing Resource Center's zine library, which I know has quite a few mental health zines. Or you could visit iprc.org yourself and try looking through their search engine(s). Finally, I know first hand of a zine called Transcendent Visions c/o David A. Barnitz Kime, 251 S. Olds Blvd. 84, Fairless Hills, PA 19030 and Functionally Ill c/o Laura-Marie Taylor, 1728 Richmond St. #9, Sacramento CA 95825. How's that for a post? Lotta information, huh? Could I get a copy of your zine? My address is 7418 NE Hazel Dell Ave. #37, Vancouver, WA 98665. Willing to trade.
