So I got to talk to the doctor organizing Diversity Day at University Medical Center and the panel I will be speaking on. We had a very good conversation about the objective of the panel and who all would be involved with the conference. It’s for psychology interns who deal with the mentally ill as well as for anyone who wants to minister to the mentally ill. He asked for my resume so I sent it along and then sent a message with some personal information, including my diagnoses, etc. I feel really good about being involved in this event and hope I can make a positive impact on the audience and the panel members.
I hope my recovery holds together through then because I so want to make a good impression for the sake of the people I will be representing. I want people’s preconceived notions of the mentally ill to be upended by me and to show how a Christian handles mental illness. So we will see what happens.
