“You can’t control your condition but you can control how you respond to it”, this is how I started my presentation to my dorms RD. Here at OSU I have been working on forming a chronic illness support group (CISP). After getting the go ahead from the head of the counseling department I started attempting to find a place for the meetings as well as a curriculum with which to lead the group (I am to be in charge of this group [eeek]) . As it stands now I think I’ll be adapting a chronic *mental* illness curriculum for my use (It’s all I can find, if you have a better idea let me know). I still have a lot to do in terms of the curriculum, publicity, and finding time. I think I’ll have a lot more time after homecoming to dedicate to this, so that will help.
