Portland, Oregon
In early 2005, I was 28 years old and just beginning to break into a career as an opera singer. I had received contracts for three main stage productions, a culmination of ten years of work toward my goal of making opera my life's work. I was at a turning point; these performances could make or break my budding career. One morning in March of that year, I woke, stood up, and passed out,...

There are so many C words that make your heart flutter like...couture, cashmere, or better yet closet!

My name is Chris Hempel. In October 2007, my husband and I received life-threatening news about our cholesterol - but our lives weren't in danger. We learned that we were born with a defect in a critical cholesterol gene and that our precious six-year-old identical twin daughters, Addi and Cassi, inherited a double mutation - both genetic cholesterol defects. For many months, I'd known...

Palatine, Illinois
I was born on August 8th 1991. Two or more weeks premature. I spent the first three and a half years of my life in a Romanian orphanage, on the third year one of the caretakers attempted to kill me by throwing me down the stairs for complaining that she was stealing food. I suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury with skull fracture. I remember waking up in the hospital. Because of the premature birth...

Who am I? Ainâ??t that the question! To most people I am a strong entrepreneur who has lived all over the world doing business with some of the largest organizations. Someone you can count on to just be there for you any time of day or night. But in fact, I am a vulnerable person. I am very fragile and my bipolar condition often sits in the driver seat of my life. In fact, you as readers...

Recovering from a serious eating disorder is arguably one of the most difficult addictions to overcome. It is a constant battle, 24/7 with no relief, often not even in sleep. How do I know? I am going through it right now. I began struggling with an eating disorder at the age of 13 after being sexually abused day after day for an entire year. I have been to an intensive in-patient treatment...
