The Georgia Certified Peer Specialist Project in receipt of my essay exam Application.
I received notification today that the Georgia Certified Peer Specialist Project is in receipt of my CPS essay exam Application. Notification was sent that both the Application and Pre Test were received and no further action at this time needed to be taken and that I will be notified of my status in the very near future.
There are 930 CPS in Georgia since 2001.
I look at that date and it leaves me breathless, outraged and full of sadness and overtaken with happiness all in the same breath. Knowing that there have been Certified Peer Specialists since 2001 to current is amazing and overwhelming to me given the life I have led since August 2004 to current and the pure discord and wreck my life was left in following August of 2004. But none the less there have been 930 CPS in GA since 2001 to present. And not a damn thing I can do about it. I have done all I can do at this point. I feel helpless in a sense and that I should be able to do more but I cannot at this time. These two hands and this loving huge heart have done all they can do. So I sat with my best friend Mark talking about life, his career and my education and career that I am working on. We met a lovely couple at Square Perk tonight and spent the evening highlighting Mark’s career as a life flight and disaster area nurse. It was a very enjoyable evening in town. Now home and wide awake with so much on my mind. I have decided to pull out a journal and hit the books with my feelings that are overwrought.
