Good Afternoon, World!!! I am now done with my interview at my previous employer. I think it went well. As with any job interview I had some anxiety that automatically goes with it. I say my anxiety was there but not as high as I thought it was going to be.
I am now at day treatment in my interview clothes waiting for Art Group. Art Group starts at one in the afternoon and it is now twelve thirty in the afternoon. I always look forward to Art therapy as it helps me express myself with what I am trying to say verbally.
As far as the group I am going to do at a volunteer job, I haven’t decided yet. I am either going to do it on grief or on self harm. Both topics can and are difficult to discuss and deal with. That is why I am thinking if I should offer to co-facilitate another group with someone and see how that goes.
Good Morning, World!!! It is yet another Monday. Monday’s are days that many folks around the world dread because it is the start of the work week. I for one dread it for other reasons. Reason’s I would really not discuss at the moment.
Today, I don’t have much to dread at I have a job interview at my previous employer. I am looking forward to it. I am looking forward to it for a multitude of reasons. Reasons that I can not share due to HIPPA laws. One reason I can share is that I am looking forward to looking forward to seeing some former colleagues. Colleagues that I have become friends with.
After my job interview, I plan on going to Art Group. Art group helps me express myself when words tend to fail me. In fact my therapist is going to try to make it to art group to be a co-facilitator of the group. I personally think he would be good at it.
Here is to a good Monday everyone!!! Peace Out, World!!!
Good Evening, World!!! The last few days have been a whirl wind. A whirl wind of things to do that has been overwhelming and mostly in a good way. Let’s start with the training I did this weekend. I attended a facilitator training to become a volunteer group facilitator at a local peer run origination. I figure this will help me career wise especially since I am applying for new jobs. Volunteering always looks good on the resume’.
I have a job interview at my previous employer. It is a Peer job at with one of their Substance Use Disorders (SUD) programs. It is a full time job and not sure if working full time is a wise decision for me to do. But I need the practice for the interview. If I get the job I can find out more it and turn it down if it is not the job for me.
I also have art group tomorrow that I am debating weather or not if I am going to go. I am debating as I would still be in my interview clothes and don’t want to ruin them. It is something to thing about right now. We will see what I’ll do and how I feel after my interview.
Thank you so much for reading my blog. It is much appreciated. Peace Out, World!!!
Good Saturday Morning, World!!! This post is a day late as I wanted it to post it yesterday. I went to my doctor’s appointment yesterday morning. We had a heart to heart discussion about my suicide attempt late last week. We discussed a safety plan and called my therapist who was surprisingly available to answer his phone. So the three of us discussed the safety plan and the fear I had on stricter med moderating. My therapist informed me that it will need to be a discussion that need to be continued. He did think the ideas my doctor and I cam up with were great idea’s.
I also went to my Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT) group. It is going to be challenging as we will be doing chain analysis but I am looking forward to doing this. Other members don’t want to do it has “its too hard” and it is but I am all for being accountable to my behavior. One person is thinking about dropping out because “its getting too hard.” I look at if this way if you don’t do something difficult that you won’t be able to grow as person.
Thanks you for reading. Have a good weekend. Peace Out, World!!!!
