Originally posted August 25, 2008, this cartoon was considered a bit harsh, but, that’s kind of the point with Dr. Bob Bob…being off the wall of reason, making you think a little about this subject. Once again, the doctor was changing his look too… Here we see his head shaped more like a pear to fit the gag of a Peer to Peer group. Yet, again Doc Bob Bob mangles up his perception of a peer group to convey his twisted ideals.
I posted this from the hotel in Tampa where I was able to bring my family to a much needed “working” or “studying” vacation. I was just starting the first day of Recovery Peer Specialist training. I was told that as a RPS, I would be able to work in the field with my peers and get a good paying job if I became certified… I should have gotten “suspicious” when they told me being certified would also allow me to fly and read minds. To say the least, being a Recovery Peer Specialist has opened a few doors for me that I have to walk through. I am happy about that and Florida is starting to come around about the importance of the self-directed care model– Peer to Peer.
