Yesterday it was decided that in just a couple months I’ll be weaned off having any job coaches at all. I will be getting kicked out of ODC’s supported employment services, or as I like to call it graduating and being back to working on my own.
It’s pretty bittersweet, but this was just the push I needed, I’ve been using this safety net for a long time because I’ve been afraid of falling, but I know it’s time to spread my wings and fly. I’ve been doing so well at work and using my natural and professional support systems.
My heartfelt thanks to everyone who has helped me on this journey, from when I fell on my face as a teenager to now as I’m taking my life back!
It’s taken years, but, oh, the places I’ll go!
