An Amazing Day

Today I was lucky enough to film yet another Dr. Phil episode. I will be sure and update everyone about the air date, and when it does air I’ll give you a little more detail. I am absolutely exhausted, so I want to tell y’all a few quick things. Dr. Phil and his staff are consistently lovely. Robin Mc Graw is otherworldly, when I think of a Southern Belle I think of a woman like her. Strong and solid, no bullshit, and OhMyGawd is she put together.

I think the show went well, and I love that they follow up with guests who appear to need help. Menschen.

Unfortunately our sweet Anissa does not appear to be doing well. I worry about her, her children, her husband and her friends. The thought of Anissa not responding to touch terrifies me, and really, I don’t have the emotional fortitude to say any more about it.

So the day was wonderful. The day is awful.

My children are healthy, my husband is a wonderful man. I am am counting my blessings and feeling like one raw nerve. It is a strange day.

  1. Such is the rollercoaster of life. As they say…when a butterfly flaps it’s wings…

    Hugs. I can tell how distraught you are over Anissa. I didn’t “know” her but she’s touched me and I am thinking of her healing and coming out of this.

  2. Hi Jessica!
    Oh Heavens, I feel like a dork.
    I’ve been following you on Twitter and JUST NOW realized you are the Jessica from the episode we both did!
    I am seeing all of the posts about your friend Anissa. She seems like an amazing person.
    Hope all turns out okay.

  3. Three friends died this year, all in the time since May. They were all 40. They all died from illness and not accidents. Accidents are much easier for me to understand, the illness I don’t get.

    I don’t know Anissa all that well. We tweeted a bunch of times and I hope that she is ok.

    All I know is that I am more thankful than ever for my own health and that of those I love and care about. It is a strong reminder about priorities. I hope to read later about her recovery, I guess that we’ll just have to wait and see.

  4. I am very sorry that the news about Anissa is not more encouraging. My late husband’s illness effected his brain and it caused his responses and actions to not always correspond with stimuli. The brain is complex and so much of it not really understood. It’s hard not to worry, but it really doesn’t do anyone any good. Better to focus on tangible things you can do.

    Congrats on your Dr. Phil episode.
