It's been a while since I've last posted anything on our website and I decided I would do some updating today.
I appreciate all the visits we have received over the last couple of years. It's awesome to know that so many have found this as a resourceful website. I contemplated on letting this website go but, I've decided to keep it going. I will try to update as much as I can.
Let me give you an update on what's been going on. Daniel has been doing well. He had a job that lasted about a month. I don't think he was quite ready for it. I'm just proud of him for finding a job on his own. Right now he is enjoying his summer. He isn't ready for school but, what teenager is? I'm hoping that he will be more focused and determined to get through high school. He has managed to get himself down to taking only two medications. His last hospitalization was about 6 months ago. It's been a learning experience for us all but, especially for him. He will become an adult in a few months and that is a bit scary for me and I know it's scary for him. I don't know what is ahead of us. I just hope that it continues to go the way it is now. It's so important to keep him on his current care plan and I pray that he makes the right decision about his mental health condition.
I have about nine months left of school and I pray I can make it through. It's been a tough 2 years and I can't wait to finish. On another note, I decided a few months ago to keep myself from participating in the mental health community. I made a personal choice for the sake of Daniel. As a parent, I can speak for hours about my experiences with other parents and help them find the resources they need but, I believe that it's Daniel's turn to share his life and experience with the world now. As I mentioned a long time ago on a previous post, I wanted to create the pathway for him and I believe that it's now his time to continue the dialogue. I know he has it in him to help many more people. I think once he gets the opportunity it will liberate him from all that he has feared his whole life. Keep an out for him.
I will still be around to help and if there are parents out there that need it. You can reach me through email or on our Facebook page.
Have a great time week!
