Swipe for our “Bed-in” muses. Ingrid and I are back for #WellEnough Week 3 talking about the ins and outs of mental health. I’m super excited for this week because I get to talk to TWO experts on this subject, @the.holistic.psychologist and my beloved/life saving psychopharmacologist @j.o.s.h.108 to get their professional takes on the matter. Mental health, anxiety, meditation, addiction, medicine, all.the.things. It’s going to be GOOD. Stay tuned for so much more! In the meantime, I’ve added a bunch of stories to kick this week off. Hope you guys are liking this community experiment so far. I know I’m learning (and loving) so much. #WellEnough.

Going live with my partner in life and gossip, #TheCWord co-host Alissa Bennett, otherwise known here on IG as @arnoldfriend6 TODAY at 2pm PT! Join us for a taste of our signature lark (that’s what I’m calling Loving Snark!) We’re discussing all things #TheCWord - including some sneak peeks and maybe also announcing some of the individual subjects for this new season 3?!?!! We might also tell you every drug we’ve never tried and ask you if they’re fun ones!? There’s a chance we’ll mention adultery. Oh fuck it, we will certainly mention adultery. And I am gonna make her sing Paula Abdul cuz she’s pretty good at that. She’s going live from @hearluminary’s account. Tune in! 2pm PT!

Our first subject on season 3 of #TheCWord is Paula Yates. Former writer and tv presenter on popular English shows #TheTube and #TheBigBreakfast, Yates’ story is fascinatingly tragic. An affair that led to love, love that led to death...death by autoerotic asphyxiation?! Drugs, tabloids, plastic surgery...we’re exploring it all. Up now on @hearluminary - link in bio. Give it a listen and drop your thoughts below... @arnoldfriend6 @pineapple.fm

It’s my birthday and I can stare off the porch like the Queen of England if I want to. (And thank you to my deliciously funny and super compassionate roommate @greer_lankton_archives_museum, making me feel like a queen.)

This week, I talked to nutritionist @kaciecarter of @honeyhi about nutrition, to share with our #WellEnough community. Today, in my stories, I talk about my complicated, love/hate relationship with food as well as some easy tips on how to eat in a way that gives you a boost, not a droop, especially during this time in quarantine when that can feel impossible.

This is a picture of me the night before I had my hysterectomy. I was putting on a brave face/sassy tongue (and a teensy blue pony to boot.) My uterus wasn’t gone yet- in fact, it was torturing me every chance it got- but I was already grieving. That grief was all consuming and it continues, but it also transforms. When it comes to fertility grief, some make peace with a different future (or perhaps they never wanted those rascal children anyhow and societal pressure is at play in their response to losing their fertility.) For others, like myself, who always wanted to be moms, it can take time to realize how many ways there are to make a family- and one of these “non-traditional” methods is probably perfect for me. #MothersDay is a beautiful and necessary celebration of what mothers give, but it can also summon a tidal wave of grief for those who have lost their own mother figure or their ability to be a mother in the way they’d always dreamed. This feels like a fitting end to this week on my page, where we’ve been exploring grief in all forms. So for those who aren’t necessarily welcoming Mother’s Day, I see you, I love you and wherever you are today- resentful, lonely, nostalgic, resigned or maybe even joyful- you are already #wellenough

*A Poem Is What You Deserve*⁣ ⁣ Cool hand on fevered head.⁣ We had that.⁣ Slippered feet running toward us⁣ after the worst of the bad dreams- we had⁣ that too. Macaroni and bean soup. Wee ⁣ baby moon. It was ours.⁣ But I want to explain ⁣ that what we really had⁣ was *you.* Watching ⁣ you get dressed,⁣ wondering if the eggplant silk would⁣ finally meet the avocado wool. Treasure hunt⁣ organised through the dunes where⁣ you said fairies had left⁣ plastic hot dogs and hotel shampoos⁣ expressly for our pleasure.⁣ The rage in your eyes when I announced⁣ "no one likes me. They told me so themselves."⁣ And the promise you made⁣ that being ourselves⁣ was worth the lonely lunch periods⁣ and the solo tourism⁣ and the street corner break ups.⁣ No one can say, as you ⁣ and your camera march on,⁣ that you have not been yourself, for yourself⁣ but for us all. And no one⁣ can say that we aren't trying⁣ our very best to follow. @lauriesimmons #MothersDay

Hello you, it’s me. Just here. Saying hi. Reminding you that, no matter where you are today, no matter how you feel, you really are #WellEnough. I hope you’ve found some of the conversation and resources I’ve shared this week around the topic of grief helpful. Helpful may be the wrong word- let’s just aim for truthful right now. Since yesterday, we discussed the grief around family and death, and today I'm sharing a few resources on breakup grief and pet grief in my stories. Every form of grief is valid, but loss of pets and loss of romantic love are two that are often dismissed or hurried- “it’s been two weeks, you’re still crying?” is a phrase I’ve heard when dealing with both of these. But recovering from either requires both diversion and community, two things that are in short supply right now. And so- if you’re going through it, I hope some of what I’m sharing (and what you’re sharing in the comments with the hashtag #wellenough) can serve as a balm. Let’s use this time and space to support each other, connect, to share ideas and suggestions. (Also plz offer any additions to the breakup playlist I’m sharing in stories because even when I’m happy, breakup songs are my jammm.)

I loved talking with @ClaireBidwellSmith, an expert on grief and coping, yesterday. She reinforced reinforced reinforced that no matter where you are today, and how you feel, YOU ARE #WellEnough. I’m so glad to be using this next month to explore this concept during this deeply specific time- I hate the idea of a silver lining, but maybe this can be our golden underbelly. The thing Claire really reminded me of is - we may not even recognize the grief we are holding onto during this time. For me, I’ve missed old relationships, lost relatives, friendships claimed by youthful push and pull, preserved only somewhere deep in the algorithm where we are posing on a beach, burnt and drunk in a messy pile. Claire shared with me the tools and coping methods she values most. I want to hear your thoughts below- like, really want to hear them. And then go to my stories to find a few helpful follow-ups!

During this time, I’ve seen a lot of posts about how to be as efficient as the Google staff, how to exercise using, like, a can of beans, and how to cook very complex grainy breads and just generally fill our days with accomplishments. But I know for many people, like me, this just isn’t how life is. Every day- even before Covid-19- can feel like a video game where I’m just dodging flying creatures and tryna pick up golden coins. (I always use my extra lives.) For those who are chronically ill, immune-compromised, neurodiverse or differently abled in any way, for those dealing with loss, depression or anxiety: you cannot relate to the perfect lens flare, vintage filter perfection that comprises the bulk of wellness content. Especially during this time, when so many of us are mired in collective heartbreak, distress and fear for future and safety. We are feeling such an incredible range of emotions, often all in one hour, and I want to create a safe space for us to discuss how OK it is to not feel OK. We’re often told that vulnerability is beautiful next to a pic of drawn on freckles and beachy waves- but how do we believe it? Because I want you to believe you are enough, no matter what. You are #WellEnough. And you are not alone. So throughout the month of May, each week, I’m devoting time to this concept #WellEnough. I'm picking one topic a week and will do a Q & A or IG Live with an expert in the field and share a few simple how-tos and tips around the topic as well. (Just in time for #MentalHealthAwareness Month too!) This week's topic is GRIEF. Yesterday, I had an amazing talk with @clairebidwellsmith, an expert on grief and coping, a topic that is so important right now. Stay tuned for a recap on that conversation tomorrow, and more information on the topic to come! I hope you come aboard, ask questions below, and find refuge and community in this. We are #WellEnough.

#Throwback to that first Monday in May when I felt so pretty headed to the gala but I also had a small surgical wound re-open right above my pelvis (thank you and bless you, connective tissue disorder.) After the initial shock- that “couldn't be” *covertly lifts skirts* “oh but it is” - I managed to drag myself to the bathroom where I collapsed and called the doctor's office while @jemima_jo_kirke fanned me with a borrowed Chanel purse and kept saying, "stay with me, Dunham" like an actor on a medical show. And then @cassblackbird found us like that, a real sorry lot, and said "girl, I know you're hurting but you're going to want a picture of this one day." And she was right. Whenever I look at this image I think about the fact that women can literally look this flawless while dripping their own blood, and I also remember how- after the three day hospital stay that ensued- my father had to carry this dress back to my house in a garbage bag, gentle as a puppy in a carrier. (I honestly cared more about protecting that @elizabethkennedynewyork dress than I did about protecting my own body.) I used to think the takeaway of this story was "don't go out on the town if you're not feeling so hot" but now that out on the town seems like a dream from a past life, I think the lesson is something more along the lines of—take any glowing adventure that is offered to you, especially if it involves a bouffant hair do and the Metropolitan Museum of Art at night and the oh so spectacular twinkle of Times Square you glimpse when you're trying to hail a cab downtown. And then one finally slows for you and you get in and he says "where are you going, fancy?" and you say "the hospital, please" and you feel like a woman in a book you once read, with a title you can't remember, but then maybe it's just a book you're going to write. #MetGala

That one day in Brighton Beach, on the only commercial I ever directed, which never aired probably because I am really not so good at product shots. But airing isn't what's important because it's the journey not the destination and this journey involved dancing in a club on the boardwalk at 10am, the light dripping red because @addp is so good at her job, and she told me to sit and look at her - so I did. I would be lying if I said that I don't find myself beautiful. It feels really good when another woman shows you how she sees you, and in turn it makes it easier for you to see yourself. Have you been looking through your old photos as much as I have lately? #fbf

Since being in lock-down, I’ve fallen asleep by fantasizing- just like always. But- unlike always- these aren't fantasies of romance and gowns and pegasus with glitter wings. Rather, I try and picture the most delicious moments of standard, everyday life. Once the world gets put back together, things will have changed forever and this place we once knew like the back of our hand will be painfully misshapen by loss and fear. But perhaps the mundane things about life that bothered us will feel magically and totally human in a way that makes all of it (even my #1 superficial dread, tunafish) just delicious. What things do you miss and not miss about the world? And will you please share them with me here? (my thoughts illustrated by @liziphoenix)

Once- on a day like today, on an April 21st such as we have lived many times before, in a suburb like another other- a fairy was born. At first, nobody knew what they were seeing: is it a boy? Is it an alien? Ignorant people misnamed and mishandled the creature, until finally the fairy landed in New York City where everyone recognised her for what she was: Greer Lankton. And Greer did, indeed, go on to sprinkle us with fairy dust. In the form of dolls and drawings and gadgets. In the form of journals containing lessons on how to live during times we cannot imagine (such as the 1980s, when so many of Greer's friends were lost to a virus nobody wanted to speak of or fight.) And through a love story with a person named Paul Monroe who Greer has now lent me to live my life with. Together, in the shade of rose bushes and glitter and Hollywood graves, Paul and I make art and raise pets and celebrate Greer through @greer_lankton_archives_museum and the passion that young people are bringing to remembering her. I can't be with Paul to celebrate Greer today, to thank Greer for the fruit she grew that my life bears. Like so many families, we are learning to care for each other from a distance at the moment. But I can still eat a bite of cake (just like Greer would have, sugar fiend) and thank my fairy godmother that I am surrounded by the art and voice and love of this person, Greer, who I never knew and yet know better than most people I've known. If you need a dose of magic today, explore Greer's life with us. (These are the first words of the intro I am writing for Greer’s official biography/memoir- but they serve today well.)

Family, friends and lovers…we are here. The last chapter of my serialized romance novel for @voguemagazine, Verified Strangers, is up and as you can see I got dressed up to celebrate. I wanted to write this story to remind us, during a time where nothing feels normal, of the thrill of the mundane: a chat in the office kitchen, a mediocre dinner with friends, laughing at an entitled douche after a date etc . But I also wanted to offer a reminder of what it's like to fall in love- real, all-encompassing, massive yet delicate love. Ally is not me, at all (I WISH- SHE'S RAD) but her process of finding love mirrors my own. I have to tell you, it's an amazing thing to realize that romantic satisfaction may not look anything like you pictured it- it feels like finding a new continent that was never on the map. I hope that, hard as this time is, you're all using the challenge of the separation to think about what you want and need from every kind of love. Because I really think if you stop internalizing other people's values (for me, that was house/husband/biological babies that came out of me in a dramatic burst), there is a whole new landscape for you.  I’m sad to see #VerifiedStrangersOnVogue end because I loved writing it every day with you, but I’m also pretty happy for Ally. She's in the right place. Go read Chapter 20 to see just where. I love you. (How will I get this latex off, is the question?)

Okay y’all? Did it work? Did I restore my youth? Do you think I’m coordinated and very, very appealing? Oh, wait, no- I’m still an aging nightgown creature with a head full of stories and a heart full of hope, asking you to make the final vote on #VerifiedStrangersOnVogue count- Timmy or Hugo? Hugo or Timmy? Who is Ally’s destiny? Can she even be happy? And will I ever learn this Tik Tok dance? Or get out of this nightgown? Chapter 19 is up now! Go to @voguemagazine’s IG Stories to vote...and go to my comments to tell me your favorite way to feel like a clumsy aging witch!!!

Last week, I went on IG live with baby angel @kaiagerber and we discussed our deep and soul defining love for reading and oh yeah we talked #VerifiedStrangersOnVogue #nbd. Kaia, ily as the kids say, I could have stayed on Live with you for multiple hours but Instagram kicks us out after one! You’re the ultimate breath of fresh air. To have you read Verified Strangers as part of your book club was such an honor, and to hear your takeaways melted my heart :’) Here’s a little summary of what we talked about. ** Chapter 18 is up on Vogue.com now! (link in bio).

Here in London away from home, I spend a lot of time reflecting on how proud I am to be a New Yorker. I miss my city, my family, my friends and neighbors and the small business owners who I interact with every single day. I miss walking down the street and the fact that there's never a day I don't see something or someone I want to write about. It's never been more painful to hear the news, about the suffering and the bleak changes to the place that raised me. And yet even against this backdrop, New Yorkers continue to amaze me- especially those working round the clock to fight this virus. So I am proud to join @kerrywashington and a noisy band of New Yorkers today in donating to express our deep gratitude for our frontline heroes, like teams at @nyphospital and @columbiamed. Will you join us and tell us who you are thanking? Post a shout out to a frontliner in your life, and give if you can. I know it's a hard time to consider diverting funds from your family, but EVERY LITTLE BIT HELPS. To give, text Fight19 to 51555 or visit the link in my bio. #ThankYouFrontLine

I looked at every single art submission for #VerifiedStrangersOnVogue and y'all made me gasp and whoop and cry- it felt like you all SAW Ally and now, here she is, in an image by @jeanann.moloney. Congratulations on being featured in @voguemagazine - keep making art! Now, how cute are Ally's overalls in the picture?

Today I have 2 years clean and sober. It’s a miracle I can’t take for granted no matter how hard I try. Two years ago I didn’t think I needed to get sober. But a quiet voice inside me said, “lay it down for a moment” and then other, louder voices helped me keep it up. To those voices- you know who you are and thank you x infinity *** My heart pounds thinking of who I was two years ago. I was afraid to change but what actually happened was that I became myself again, a young and carefree self, a self who was clear in intention and bold in action and - most of all- free. We know, now more than ever, that we all need to be free *** When I first got sober, people often told me it was the best choice they’d ever made, the achievement of which they’re most proud. That seemed crazy- NOT doing something was the best thing they’d ever done??? But they were right- not using and removing secrecy and self harm from my repertoire, has given me a life beyond my wildest dreams. Not because it’s perfect, but because it is really and truly mine *** There is real help available for people who feel they are beyond hope. So many people are waiting for you across a shaky but time tested bridge *** Now here is a picture of me smiling just because :)

I wrote up a little daily quarantine checklist for you, my only friends in the world. Repost this if you like it, steal it, don’t give me credit, tell your boss you wrote it since he probably doesn’t follow me. DO YOU! But seriously, even though this is a checklist it’s also a friendly reminder that your worth is not measured by your productivity. Especially in a time shaped by mass illness, respect the limits of your physical and mental health while pushing the limits of your love and tolerance!

My “more coffee please” gaze, and Ingrid’s stiff pose are both evidence it’s #VerifiedStrangersOnVogue VOTING DAY (and Ingrid knows that soon I’ll be furiously typing the version of the story you asked for, and ignoring her constant demands for peanut butter toast.) Chapter 12 of #VerifiedStrangersOnVogue is up now, and you can vote on @voguemagazine’s stories about what Ally should do next. She’s kind of in a pickle of her own creation, isn’t she? (Hate when I’m pickled in my own juices, don’t you? 🥒) Now- go read, go vote! Link in bio.

When you’re by your lonesome because you respect social distancing but you’re trying to write an extremely sexy chapter of your romance novel but also sexy stuff makes you giggle... If you’d told me ANY of this three weeks ago I would have been like “excuse you?”. Chapter 8 of #VerifiedStrangersOnVogue today was pretty saucy, no? Or am I deluded with no sauce in my pot? It’s up on @voguemagazine now, link in my bio!
