Apology from the Blogger-in-Chief

I want to offer an apology to all of our readers for the Mental Health Day post I posted to the Women in Astronomy blog yesterday. It was a terrible oversight to not get approval from the entire CSWA, especially since I did not do my due diligence as a writer to vet claims in the post. I also want to apologize for the damage done to those who live with the conditions referenced in the post. Life is complicated by many factors. We're all just trying to live our best lives within our circumstances and no one should ever be shamed for that. I'm sorry for any pain or harm I caused.

Thank you to all the people who spoke out about the post and taught me this valuable lesson. I will do better.
