I’ve gotten better in the past 5 or 6 years…

I made peace with my illness. I don’t blame anyone else for my illness and I admit and accept that I have a mental illness. I am thinking how I cannot wait until May 1st so I can tell Janet that I can go back to co-facilitating the NAMI Connection support group. I’m starting WRAP on March 8, 2017 for the third time I’m taking the WRAP class. I will take WRAP five times over the next four years. WRAP is a good class. On March 8, 2017 I will be taking the WRAP class for the third time. People will say “Ayesha took WRAP three times already my goodness!” Tammy Garrison took WRAP six times before she got a job at Hamilton Public Library. I work at Mercer as a Mentor for the DREAM program and this will be my second full semester working there (almost three semesters in all) by May 2017.
