I have done quite a bit of volunteering at NAMI over the years. I had quality of life too over the years as a volunteer and a consumer of the social group for adults. I have never had much popularity in my life. This is one of the coolest opportunities I have had where I can stand out and just be myself and share things getting four nominations will be one of the coolest experiences I have had. My illness is really difficult for me even though I have had a few other successes for me life after turning thirty was a process of self discovery. I discovered that I am a cool person too. I may have quirks and differences but I have decided and learned to accept those things too. Getting compliments on my clothes and fashionable coats and jackets makes me feel really good. I now focus on being more frugal and only going to department stores when they have good sales because I can get more if I focus less on brand name clothes. Occasionally, I get a nice designer coat but I don’t focus on those things anymore. I have been putting a wardrobe together since last summer. I lost a significant amount of weight and I am looking for smaller size clothes to fit by this fall of 2020.
