Dear friends, authors, contributors, and supporters,

We are so thankful to have published an issue of powerful writing that helped fight the stigma of illness. Our contributors and reviewers gave us valuable resources for continuing to explore illness and its impact on our lives.

With that said, we come to you with the difficult decision to close Quiet Storm. Our founder wanted to help people share their stories without first sharing hers. Adi is currently exploring her diagnosis of OCD and steadily healing from the litany of health issues connected to it, including dehydration, extreme

tremors, and persistent infection.

We thank you for your understanding and hope

you are equally as content as we are with the

work Quiet Storm displayed this past year.

Your stories will bring change.

Your writing will break stigmas.

Please keep sharing both.

Strength and healing to you all.

— The QS Team
