Stuff

I am on a determined binge to hit the gym 4 nights a week... I had my "free physical assessment" last night.. which is really key words for.. "I'm gonna work your body till you scream.. and then do my best to talk you into paying extra for that bullying" I enjoyed the workout.. but it's just not in the budget to pay for that... I am on a mission though.. it seems my butt no longer resembles the one I had when I was so proud of it...That.. and seems a number of pounds have also crept in and took hold which I am no longer wanting to support and send to buildings of higher education with me..

I also got to talk with my first schizophrenic type person yesterday... That was eye opening.. Seems like Father Earth was holding a knife to her throat with a bag of crack...He was a determined lil cuss too... It made me realize I still want to learn more.. I want to be a COPSD Specialist.. which is Co-occurring Psychological and Substance Abuse dis*orders.. which in my humble opinion.. catches about 80% of all substance abusers... You have to treat them both before any good progress is made.. so.. I just need to learn more.. I LOVE TO LEARN!!!

I am missing someone right now.. so very much...

Your compassion is equalled only by your desire to learn and to serve. We need more people like you. I hope the person you miss makes contact...wherever they might be.

Funny (not in the ha ha sense) that you should write about this today. Miss A and I had a long discussion about this very subject yesterday.

Seems a friends kid (bi-polar + drug abuser) recently OD'd on her anti-psychotic medication and damn near died this time.

In my limited experience, the two disorders (is that the right word?) usually feed each other in a circular pattern. One making the other worse in turn.

Scary...and sad...

It takes a very special person to work with the mentally ill. There's absolutely no way I could do that on a daily basis.
