Unbeknownst to me, my son has been looking for work since June. Now I know why he kept asking for the car. While I still have my reservations, I’m so very proud of him. The last time he worked, it was in 2012, before the diagnosis, and as expected, they were all disasters (6 jobs between 2011-2012).
Now he seems a bit stable and I’m hoping for the best. I think working will make him feel so much better about himself. I truly do. Give him some sort of purpose, a reason to get out of bed. And I want this for him so badly. But here is the dilemma. He has gone on several interviews, and no call backs. My heart breaks for him. He said to me, “Mom, they can tell there’s something wrong with me. I don’t talk much, and I never laugh, and I don’t know if I answered their questions right”.
I’m sure he would never mention sz, but I’m sure they noticed something was “off”. I’m hoping someone will give
him a chance.
Also, he was not sure if he should mention sz @ the initial interview. I’m sure he was scared to mention it.
I’m hoping for a kind hearted empathetic employer to come his way.
