This podcast started out as a blog about my book, "You Don't Know Crazy". In the book, I tell the story of how mental illness stole my life and how I took my life back. I welcome you to the "You Don't Know Crazy" Podcast where I share personal life stories, humor and inspiration. I was born in Greensboro, North Carolina in 1950. I currently live in New York City. Among other things, I am an actress, speaker, author and mother of two adult daughters. I'd love to hear from you sometime.

More
We order from the Universal Menu every second of every day. We are ordering with each thought we think and every word we speak. Many of us live day to day on automatic.
