Hi I'm Camilo Supelano

I grew up in Bogotá, Colombia. I served a mission in Argentina, and now I support psychologist organizations.

About Me

I am from Colombia, grew up and live in Bogotá city. I had the privilege of serving a mission in Argentina. I love to serve, to have fun with my family and dear friends. I love languages and I study them. I used to read, learn, practice with many things of the church in different languages.

Why I am a Mormon

I am member since I was a kid, and as any member who grow in the church I had a conversion process, much prayer and continue seeking, lead me to a truth I treasure.

How I live my faith

We all have different experiences and trials in life; mine, personally, is struggleing with mental health. I don't really know exactly what I am diagnosticated (since every visit to the doctor, I receive a different one), but something I know, and it is that I have been helped in many ways. Since very young I wrestle with depression, at that time I didn't think it was different than anyone else, I used to think that I just needed to be positive and everything would work fine, and actually, it does a little bit. At age 14 my anxiety exploted, I was desperate and suicide thoughts collapsed my mind. In a failed attend I figured out I needed help. Years passed by and I understand better myself. I am not expecting to instantly be healed (even though it was my dream in my teenage days), I use different medication, therapy, and psychologic follow-up. I've been hospitalized and social ashamed in hard times. But my life isn't all about thorn, it's been filled with roses, daisies, carnations and all kind of experiences. Most of the people would say I am happy at all, and would denay I deal with suicidal thoughts. It might sound irrational, but I'm grateful for my issues. I have developed a lot of humbleness, otherwise, I think I'd be a super mean person. I may understand the sorrow of many, I can be grateful for little things. I love to know I am a son of God, I'm not an experiment in a fishbowl, I was created in the very image of God and by and by I'll be more like him since Jesus said "what manner of men ought ye to be? Verily I say unto you, even as I am." If any struggle with emotional issues, I may say that it is possible to be happy and that it may be a way to help others. I know that God loves me and that He gives us experiences that we may overcome, otherwise I would be unable, but in many of them, we will have to ask for help.
