Overspending
Saturday, December 08, 2018      9 comments

I pay my parents $500 each month for my share of the rent, groceries, toilet paper, utilities, and laundry money (we live in an apartment). I pay for our internet because I get a discount since I'm disabled. I thought I only spend $500 on ... Read more

The day before Thanksgiving, I was hoping my work would let me go 59 minutes early, as we are usually dismissed that early the day before a holiday. Then, in the morning, my coworker said that we might be able to leave at 2 pm, so I got excited... Read more

Today, one of my aunts remarked that her son is also mentally ill, but got married, and has a family now. Then she remarked that I should follow suit, and that God wants me to get married. This upset me, so I just said that I will think about ... Read more

Unhappy At Work
Saturday, October 13, 2018      4 comments

2 weeks ago, I transferred to a different unit at work. At first, I was so excited, because I didn't want to be in intake anymore, as I didn't like doing customer service at the window. However, once I started my new position, I quickly realiz... Read more
