Glad to hear that some of us are regaining our sense of self. I don’t exactly know for myself when Schizophrenia started becoming a smaller issue on my mind and in my daily efforts. I do know that I always intended on carrying forward with my own priorities, finding a way to be the person my brother needs while still being the person I deserve to be. Difficult, but well worth the effort.
Today is my last shift with my old job.
I will have a few days off before my new job starts. It will be a period of some anxiousness, but I am well versed in calmly waiting to see what happens (as I know you all are as well!)
It is nice to enjoy my coworkers’ well wishes. I am glad that I am surrounded by positive, supportive people. I assured them that I enjoyed my job and being on the team, but that I will always be seeking the next big challenge.
I hope that this new job is the challenge I need. I hope that I spend years expanding my ability on the job. And climbing the ladder.
We will see.
