Met my new peer today

She’s very recovery focused. She told me to make a schedule for myself, to color, and do relaxation things from an app on my phone. I guess I’ll give it a try

No. She just said to look on my phone @GrayBear

What’s a peer @ZmaGal?

A peer support specialist is someone who has mental illness but has overcome disability from it. They spend time with you once a month and help you. I get it through county health @Wave

By peer, do you mean therapist?

I have one. Thinking of canceling it.

No. A peer is not a therapist. A peer is a person with mental illness who used to be disabled but is no longer disabled

Cool. Sorry I missed your answer to Wave.

It’s ok @chordy. It’s hard to read every post out there.

Are you going to make a schedule for yourself?

I guess. I’ll try it. I didn’t like that we were supposed to meet for an hour and she called it after 15 minutes

I wouldn’t like that either. I would feel jipped.

Yeah. She scheduled another spot with me but I may cancel. I haven’t decided yet.

I think I would give it one more try, you know, just to see. But if she cut me short again I would say something.

Ok. Good idea @leafy. I guess that’s what I’ll do.

Then you can find out why she’s cutting it short, if she does.

I’ve had 2 other peers and it’s never happened before so it just seems so strange
