picked a gig for the day, this tuesday. a workshop on the redesign of psych services, in-particular psych triage. a focus will be on promoting more lived experience peers in actual roles. i know i will get sore and stuff, and have made things ready for the day. the turtle will be looking a little dapper, no, no tie!!!! neat casual, this one is at our premier conference centre and is fully catered. turtle will munch!!!! got taxi vouchers. it is a paid gig, maybe vouchers......better than getting my pension docked. they pay well, in both formats. just wanted to share as it has lifted me, even though i am screaming in pain.

HT, I know how much these activities mean to you and I am so happy you are being given another opportunity to make your life experience meaningful.

Let's face it, we're in pain regardless of what we are doing, so we might as well get all we can out of it!

The fact that you are willing to bear more pain, in an effort to make a difference and help others, is uplifting to ME!

Thanks for sharing this with us.
