It was harder and harder to find the motivation every morning. To make matters worse, I suffered from migraines, the type of headache that can debilitate you. At least once a month, I could barely open my eyes to daylight without feeling like my head was about to explode.

Faster than I could have anticipated, the paycheck was no longer worth the unhealthy environment I encountered under the nicely polished surface. The cleaning lady warned again that the head of the office spied on us through secret cameras, gossiped about us when we were away, all while still trying to start fights about politics. The smirks and poor taste jokes from my fellow worker started sounding like real threats and I started fearing for my safety.

Actress, mom, writer, ex-lawyer, vegan, witch. The only thing that matters about my childhood is that I survived.
