I’m Going To #OCDCON

I'm Going To #OCDCON

It’s been a while since my last post. I have realized just how much I relied on getting my thoughts and feelings out on here when I was sick last year. Now that I’ve been doing so well, I haven’t had too many thoughts poisoning my brain. I have thrived this summer. I took on an internship with the Director of Mental Health which has been amazing. My supervisor has given me many jobs and even made me the event organizer for a Suicide Prevention event. I’ve gathered speakers, booked two venues, and ordered promotional items. It has been a lot of fun.  It has shown me that I will be able to not only function, but thrive in the real world once I get out of school. A year ago, these thoughts would have put me into a panic attack, but now I am filled with such excitement!

I’m feeling ready for the real world. To take on responsibilities, to push myself to work harder, and to envision my future. With a future in mind, I’m taking my first steps by not only taking an internship with the Mental Health Department of the county but to fly to Chicago and attend the Annual OCD Conference by myself. This will be my first conference and I’m so excited to see what this experience holds. I can’t wait to hear everyone’s stories and to meet professionals in the field. It will give me a look at what specifically I want to do in the Mental Health field, what different positions there are, and to possibly network and gain connections. I truly feel like I’m ready to face this big scary world. I’m finally taking steps towards my dreams of helping others and I am just amazed by how far I’ve come.

  1. It has been a joy to watch you open up and Blossom this summer. Not only have you succeeded in your internship but they’ve offered you to come back with a paid internship next year, that says a lot about your work ethics!! You also forgot to mention that you took a cognitive psychology online course that you received a B in. So proud of what you’ve accomplished this summer. I am and will always be so very proud of you!!

  2. FANTASTIC!! I have no doubt whatsoever that you will overcome any obstacles that present themselves to you.

    I’m also glad to see that you are looking ahead and staying focused on your goals for the future. It is my personal feeling that one of the most rewarding things a person can do is to help others and make a positive influence in the lives of others. I’m sure you will receive personal satisfaction many times over in the future.

    Keep working hard and stay focused!
