Zine World review

Functionally ill #1 got a very favorable review in the latest Zine World. I've received one order as a result so far.

This is about as good as it gets for me. Laura-Marie tackles her fear, her shame, her secrets, and the voices in her head by talking about her journey through the surreal landscape of mental illness and the mental health system. Her no-nonsense writing is clear, concise, and ultimately poignant in its hopefulness. She is completely likable, and casts a profoundly human and compassionate light on anyone we might meet who struggles with mental illness. --Jack
