It's been a while since I have been on to say anything. I wanted to give you an update on what's been going on. Today we get to meet our new friends from High Tech High Chula Vista from San Diego, California. Daniel gets to spend the next few days getting to know the students and their teacher. He will be part of their documentary that they are doing as a school project. This time he will be telling his own story. I'm so excited because this means that he is moving forward and finally realizing how much he can help people with his story. He has changed a lot within the last few months. He does worry about the stigma that he might face since he will officially be on camera but I told him that fear is what stops people from doing what they want and need to do. We try hard not to let fear get the best of us and after thinking about it. He finally said that he wants to help other teens like him. So here we are; today is the beginning of many good things to come for him.
These 45 students and their two teachers are trying to make a change. Please help them by making a small contribution to their project.

On another note, next month I will be speaking at Lone Star College in Kingwood, Texas. They will be having a series on mental health and I will be one of their speakers. I'm pretty excited and I can't wait to participate. I am still participating with CIT here in San Antonio. My lecture with Course Cafe is almost done and I'm trying to put together a little something for parents in my shoes.
I wanted to talk about the interview with Adam Lanza's father but that will have to be on a later entry.
Hope everyone has a great Friday and a wonderful weekend.
I'm a mother with an agenda to save her son from the grips of his mental illness and stop stigma so that those who suffer in silence can seek help without fearing the worse. Join me on this roller coaster ride..you're no longer alone.
