Bye Bye, BBH!

Jared & I have worked our last days at BBH, so it's time to say goodbye. I'm going to miss that place. For me, it was the most effective way to get that "Baltimore Bond" that I never thought I'd have when I moved here. I know I'll always keep the folks there in my prayers. It's a facility for dual-diagnosis patients: mental health issues along with addictions. It was always a fun challenge to teach there, whether the topic was schizophrenia or diabetes.

Perfect hours, amazing people, getting teaching experience, decent pay, and a boost in self-confidence are among some of the benefits I received while teaching there. And you know what they say: the best way to learn something is to teach it...so I learned a lot, too. Goodbye, friends, and good luck. Never, never give up!

If anybody has experience working with those with dual diagnosis of mental health and addictive problems... it's you! You've been doing it for years- poor thing, can't change your family- lol- seriously though, I know they were so lucky to have such a compassionate, empathetic, dynamic woman who knows her own weakness and so is always trying to learn how to better herself and is super nonjudgemental of all but herself.
