Sorry, I haven’t written for awhile. I got a job and it has thrown me off my regular routine.
I almost can’t believe I am working. It is part-time, as a peer mentor. They know of my diagnosis and will understand if I have symptoms.
I have only been there for a month. I was excited to get a paycheck. I took my mother-in-law out to dinner. It was nice being able to treat her.
It is really slow right now. We are just getting ready to open. I know it will change. I have a great schedule, but I don’t know how I will adapt to getting going in the morning.
If you have a serious mental illness and have been disabled for many years, there is hope that you can achieve your goals.
I have no idea what the future holds but I really wanted to at least attempt to work again.
