Toward the finish line

Posted by symackay on May 10, 2010 at 1:17 PM

On Mother's Day, I participated in the Vancouver Sun Run with my sisters and mother. My one year old nephew did it in a stroller. It took over 2 hours to walk 10 kilometres. We took our time and a break during the walk.

Also this month, I plan to visit Toronto. Hurray! I hope to see some people and some great art.

My memoir on recovery is four months from publication. We have reached the end of the editing stage. I designed a cover. The title is "My Schizophrenic Life: The Road To Recovery From Mental Illness." I'm quite excited about it. The next move is to get some people to review it and writes blurbs for the book.

As I move toward the finish line of publishing my book, I realize I'm okay with having a so-called brain disease. For the large part, I still feel socially accepted and compassionate to myself.
