In a Nutshell: My Week in Review

I had an exciting week this past week.

Our new house is closer to completion and they showed me a picture of my sunroom where I’ll be doing all my writing and it’s stunning. I picked out a colorful bird-print wallpaper and it looks so good.

Just a couple more weeks, then we can move in.

On Friday, I was a speaker at Rep. Todd Hunter’s Suicide Prevention Symposium, which was open to the whole community. About 100 people were there, and even though I was very nervous, I think I did an OK job. I spoke about my experience being suicidal and gave a few statistics as well.

I’m hoping to work with Rep. Hunter more on mental health initiatives — I’m really impressed with his dedication to mental health and to the community as a whole. He’s not a politician, he’s a public servant and it’s obvious. Very admirable.

This week, I’m hoping to get more packing done and set a date for the movers.

I hope you all are well.

Keep reading, and stay in the light, friends.

  1. Hi Heather – I was on Rep Hunter’s meeting. I think you did a fantastic job. I wanted to reach out because I also live with mental illness and suicidal thoughts and am an attempt survivor. I also work with the Texas Suicide Prevention program as an epidemiologist. I was on the call because I authored the data report my Associate Commissioner, Dr. Harvey, spoke about. Keep up the amazing work and feel free to reach out.

    Best,
    Jennifer
