This is a presentation that I hope will change your life. And actually, it’s a story that just might. After all, there was a movie that I once saw with a story that changed my life many years ago. It was called Lorenzo’s Oil. It’s a true story about a boy who was afflicted with a terrible rare, disabling and life threatening disease that baffled the medical community to the point that no one seemed able to save him. No-one, that is, until the boy’s parent’s themselves began to seek the answers for their dying son. I watched this story for the first time many decades ago and had no idea the impact it would have at changing the shape of my life today. I was very troubled back then. I was scared of most people and the terrible thoughts and feelings in my head that had tortured me as a teenager and young adult. I struggled in almost every area of my life... for most of my life... finally realizing, one day at a hospital, that I was struggling with Major Mental Illness -aspects of Bipolar and Schizophrenia. And I’ve been battling this for most of my life... But not now. See, lately, my life has done a 180 degree turn and I feel quite good as though my fears have finally healed from the emotional horrors I’d suffered so long before from this incurable mental health disorder. And I can’t help but notice from this Mental Healthy vantage point today that this is all due to the willingness I had to try and change my life. It was my determination to find solutions from Traditional Therapies but also discover additional ways that were not so easily obvious and find answers that no one else was willing to explore. Like Lorenzo’s parents, these philosophies are what has successfully saved me from my destined lifetime of continued Mental Illness pain and suffering... to instead glow in my current reality today as a Mental Healthy, Happy, Productive Motivational Speaker wanting to help inspire you now! This presentation is my story. And as I mentioned before, I hope it will change your life. Because maybe it can - like Lorenzo’s Oil changed mine. I want to “pay it forward” and plant a seed and pass on the real possibility and hope for healing to you... so maybe you can too... no matter what you may be dealing with!
