"Tandying" is not a word in the English language Dictionary. The only reference that comes up is in relation to Jessica Tandy (actress). I liked the work of this actress. She could make you believe she was really the characters she portrayed. Therefore, I have decided to make "Tandying" a word that means "Successfully maintaining an illusion."

The process of facing and owning my character defects is excruciating at times - but then again, so was living as a morbidly obese woman.
