Third Book In Process


Hey guys!

I am currently in process of writing my third book. I’ve been collaborating with my former peer support specialist, who worked with me when I was very sick and catatonic. She is one of the people that gave me faith, hope, and tough loved. Her tough love was unorthodox in the mental health system, considering what it was, but as I got more recovered I latched onto that tough love in order to achieve what I have today. This third book will be my life story (although, not all of it) of how I went from being in a catatonic state of Schizophrenia to where I am now, working in the mental health field.

This is quite exciting for me, in so many ways. I want others to read this book. And have hope that you can come out of the deepest trenches of mental illness and still be able to live your best life. It’s very much possible!

I’m in the beginning stages, and I hope to get a traditional publisher for this one. So, stay tuned!

Thanks for reading! And until next time!

I Got Hired For A Job In Mental Health


Yes! You heard it right!

I got hired as a Peer Support Specialist in my county. Actually, I’m one of the first in my county.

I’m not sure if others will be hired the same date I will be, but I’m sure there’s more to be hired eventually. I can officially check off “Getting A Job” on my goal list.

I was super, super stoked about this, and actually waited to tell you guys, because I felt like if I got it, it would be very special. Although, if I didn’t get it, it would also be very saddening, especially if I told everyone. It took me 3 months total, with 2 interviews, to get hired. So I was really itching to say something the entire time!

I had applied to maybe 20 jobs before I got this one, and I didn’t really want any of them, but I needed more income than I was receiving to live. I was willing to take a lot of jobs, basically.

This is only the beginning of a dream for me. Or, perhaps it’s in the middle, as I got engaged not too many months ago, along with other good things.

I apologize for not being active. I was really stressed out all month. Fiance’s father died, we’ve been having financial issues, and the relationship was suffering a bit, amongst other things.

But here I am! Here’s to a new path going forward! 🍾πŸ₯‚πŸ»

Thanks for reading! And until next time!
