I am happy that I have reached a point in my life that I can feel good about myself despite my mental illness.

I know God is right here with me. I pray for a better world and less war and chaos. I know some people don’t have the comforts that I have. My life is a good life though. I am happy with my choices. I need to be able to choose what I do. I wish this corona virus pandemic will be over sooner rather than later. I have been also thankful to God for the social supports I have at NAMI but I will be rescheduling my praxis core reading test once I get an email. I will probably arrange to take core in September one part at a time. I know if I study for an hour a day until I can get the okay from Disability Services at ETS.
