Yikes! It's been a while since my last post but school has been busy to say the least. Stress levels have been high resulting in me catching a lovely virus (and having to pay $20 to go to the doctor, still can't get used to the having to pay for health care thing). Finally starting to feel back to normal, well normal with allergies, just in time for the last week of classes.

I presented a duet with a classmate this morning and just finished writing my final for my psychopathology class. As part of the final I just completed I had to pick a memoir to read from someone who had/has suffered from mental illness (who hasn't to some degree?!). I chose My Stroke of Insight by Jill Taylor.
For those of you who have not read this book, I strongly suggest adding it to your "To Read" list. It is a shorter book and although there is some terminology involved the book, she included diagrams and her aim is to reach the masses by keeping it "user-friendly". She shares her experience of going through a stroke and how it has changed her life. She suggests what is helpful and what maybe isn't so much when working with someone who has suffered a stroke. I won't share too much so you can enjoy the read for yourselves!
