I feel less ill as I once did.

I feel good about the volunteer work I did for almost ten years at NAMI. I have hope for my present and my future. I am an optimist. I see successes into my 40s and 50s. I don’t want to limit what I can do. Next January 2021 I will be turning forty. I am actually looking forward to turning the big 4-0. I have a good relationship with my mother. I feel close to my grandma too. I wrote a short poem for my mom called You Inspire Me that was published in the latest newsletter. I appreciate my mom so much. She took me to quite a few doctor and dental appointments over the past few months. I want my mom to know that I love her. I won’t let my disability stop me. I want to be able to able to write for children and teenagers. I look forward to getting a certificate in writing for children and teenagers from The Institute of Children’s Literature in Connecticut.
