So today at 1:00 I have my interview for a peer counseling job that I really want. I'm not worried about disclosure or anything, because in this job you have to be a consumer who's diagnosed and actively seeking treatments with p-docs, and be fairly consistent in your recovery, and reliably taking your meds, because they want you to be able to relate to people who are going through the same process. I'm not really worried about getting the job because they sought me out to apply for it, it's just that, it makes you wonder when you're going to be giving people that are going through some possibly trying times, advice, or guidance, how do you do it the best way possible. I've made a lot of mistakes and I could most definitely steer people off those paths, but I'm kind of viewing it like recovery with anyone is like a discussion that it helps to share with a person going through it. Maybe that's what I should focus on just being there and supportive, and not neccesarily trying to fix anything as I don't think I'm the person to do that. Any advice? eep.
