Born To Freak, by Sarah Seidelmann (Paperback)


I think there is more than one comedian in the Bamford family! I loved Sarah's first book, What The Walrus Knows. This, her second book, did not disappoint me. She is hilariously funny, salty, and completely serious in her approach, sometimes all at once. Sarah tells stories from her life as a mom, a wife, a physician and a life coach that make me laugh... and make me think.

Born to FREAK: A Salty Primer for Irrepressible Humans [Kindle Edition] Sarah Bamford Seidelmann MD (Author)

Born to FREAK: A Salty Primer for Irrepressible Humans

With the help of Alice the Elephant, I came to the realization somewhat late in life that I was born to FREAK. - Sarah Seidelmann

It is my dream that by confessing my own strangeness and sharing tales of epic FREAKY awesomeness, other irrepressible humans might get the memo earlier in their lives that they, too, were born to FREAK.

Through my personal work and my work with clients and groups, I've made so many connections between ADD, high sensitivity, Asperger's syndrome, autism, addicts of every kind (sex, drugs, alcohol, gambling, shopping), depressed/anxious/manic people, intense people, change agents, black sheep, adrenaline junkies, irrepressibles, rebels, bohemians, life pirates, bad asses, artists, innovators, performers, comedians, and healers ... and I believe we were all born to FREAK.

"Not everyone can handle your awesomeness. That's okay. Toss them a loving 'Namaste,' with peace, love, and joy, and move on. Take your effervescence elsewhere." -Alice the Elephant.

We were all put here not to fit in, but to see things differently, to ruffle feathers, and to return balance to the world and our communities by using our creative abilities, our healing presence, and our eccentric gifts. I wrote this book to help you discover your own wondrous inner multitudes, so you'll share your fantastic, strange, and entirely original notions with the world. We need you.
