        1. Ok! Haha… I promise I will give it a shot… all great topics, Bojana. You remind me of my high school English Teacher, she was fun and always believed I could write! We are still friends today! AND, it will be good for me to leave the illness in the shadows once in awhile, a fibro free day! ~Kim

  1. It’s so interesting to read your answers, Kim! From the job roles you’ve had, such as the mental health counsellor and Psychiatric Technician, which would you say you preferred/loved the most? It made me chuckle when you wrote about The Real Housewives – I suspect that TV like that are guilty secret pleasures for a lot of people, not that they’d ever admit it! 🙂

    1. CAZ. Those jobs were so rewarding. I must sat I enjoyed the Crisis Unit the most. Being a psych tech was EVERYTHING to me but it took everything from me as well. I was only 19 when I got that job and although trained, it was heartbreaking at times, dangerous at times, and so worth it most off the time! But I have scars, working with adolescents in crisis… bound to happen. I really enjoyed all my jobs I had at different times of my life. Just like I enjoy a good cat fight on the housewives!
