I've been volunteering at a school on very part time basis. I am on disability. Today the director of the school was cracking jokes about being on disability. Yesterday an intake worker at a clinic gave me a face about the amount of hospitalizations I have had. First of all.. I do not want disability! It's been a need in my life! Second.....I AM NOT proud of the hospitalizations. I am coming on 14 months without hospitalization. I am working toward not needing disability, but a stupid thyroid issue has interfered and set my mental health back. Plus May and June just sucks. That's all. Well it's not..but anyway.
