On April 7 I was one of the University of Louisville faculty honored at a dinner hosted by the University provost for at least 25 years teaching there, in my case 25 years. While this is a milestone for any faculty member, it is incredibly meaningful for me. As someone who has suffered from the second most severe mental illness for his entire professional career, I feel truly blessed that through the efforts of my doctors, therapists, family, friends, and myself I can realistically look forward to celebrating 30 years in 2016.
