Change - (Career Gain, Losing A Loved One and Emotional Eating)
I’ve been through several changes in my life; some are good while others are not. One good change is completing my master’s degree in psychology. For my internship I am working at a local counseling center where I am getting some valuable experience in working in both counseling and in medical billing and coding. I am learning different techniques when it comes to both individual and group counseling. I am having the opportunity to teach classes on both anger management and stress.
With my internship I am also learning how to do medical billing and coding and how to process
payments through Medicaid. I am learning a wealth of information. Practically every very time I go to the counseling center, I learn something new. I am also in the process of pursuing my Associate Professional Counseling License (LAPC).
The negative thing that occurred in my life was losing my father. My father, Dr. Johnnie Swanson died last week and it hit my family and me pretty hard. He will be greatly missed. Having these new great beginnings taking place in my life and then having to cope with death and losing a loved one can be very hard and difficult. I began to regress started back over eating again. But I realized that I have a problem with emotionl eating so I put a stop to it dead in its track. This week, I will posting a v- blog about my Emotional eating issues (Binge eating disorder) on my YouTube channel Kimberly Purpoz. I will share with you all what I am doing to manage my binge eating issue. I am determined not to go back my old habits. I want to continue being healthy and live by my dad's motto "Your Health is your First Wealth".
My dad and I had a very close relationship and he is going to be missed. I took another term off from school. But I know that I have to go back stronger than ever when I start back into my PhD program because I have made a promise to my dad that I will continue my education and pursue my dream of becoming a doctor.
