As most of you know, I have a disability. It is not dyslexia even though I thought it was. I do things slowly. I've had a hard time keeping a job because I am too slow or other things that employers tell me. The only job that I had that lasted me a long time was Teltrust. It almost lasted three years until the company closed. Then, I entered school. I am going through Vocational Rehabilitation to learn office skills and they can help me find a good job. It is very discouraging to know I have a disability(I don't really know what it is. They've tested me and the counselor knows so I will ask him)and I can't really be successful in life. I don't ask to be perfect and I would love to do things fast and accurately at the same time. But I have limitations. I am having feelings of depression. How I would love to have a good job, a nice house, a car, and a husband who will understand. I would love to take charge of my life. My mother controls my money since I can't manage it myself. Sorry, I have to vent. But I see many former high school classmates with successful jobs and families and I am divorced, almost unemployed, and without a home of my own. I wish I could be normal!
