I am really enjoying a new mental health group that I am attending at my local Peer Support Centre. We are doing stuff on medications, jobs and more. Today we were doing stuff on getting a job. I am not planning on getting a job any time soon. I have never worked outside the home. I’ve always been a stay-at-home-mom. I would like to volunteer somewhere. I would love to do something regarding raising awareness and fighting the stigma of BPD. We were told today by the group facilitator to pretend that we are going for a job. We can do mock interviews and make up resumes. I have one done up already that I did for a previous group. It lists all of the things I’ve learned about BPD, such as my DBT program, along with doing presentations at the Centre, and running my BPD Discussion/Support Group. It also lists a few other things that are relevant.
I always love new opportunities to be creative and help others. This group is very good for me. It really helps with my self-esteem.
Just thought I would update you on what happened at Group today. It is freezing where I live. I hope the weather is not too bad where you are. Where’s Spring? Till next time,
