Shani, Shani - 01/12/2014

I really apiapcerte the openess. It helps me as my career has been on hold since 2007 due to mental health issues. Now, it is due to that and medical issues. All of which are improving. If all goes well, I will be applying for a doctoral program in Clinical Psychology next year, but have much to work on until then. I've had three hospitalizations since I stopped working one was 42 days. My depression greatly increased when I stopped working and now with my health that has prevented me from attending family gatherings and volunteering. Thanks for letting me go on and on I guess, I just wanted you to know that somehow I feel connected to you with what you shared. By the way, I'll be 46 in August, so by the time I finish school I will be well into my 50s. From what I've heard and read, the 50s are about the time when people make career changes.
