I feel that I now can move forward in trying to navigate my way through life itself due to having the beinnings of a foundation under my feet. In order for me to be successful, I need someone to guide me, as it comes with the territory of living as an American with disabilities, and it’s why I’m so thankful for the active involvement by my Mom. My Mom is like my bedrock, someone who I can count on when I’ll start my transition into the real world of careerbuilding. I’m most appreciative of the fact that she understands this and she’s now able to take a more active role.
I have to admit for my own well-being, the timing could not be better. This was something I stayed quiet about for about 5-6 months, never fully bringing it up as my Grandpa (may he RIP, 1922-2013) was dying and my Mom’s stress level increasing during that period.
I want all to understand, THIS IS NO EXCUSE FOR ANY INACTION ON MY PART. I realize I might have done this sooner, rather than yesterday, but sometimes keeping quiet about one’s needs until the right moment comes up can pay dividends. Basically, I knew that until my Mom was able to focus on my transition, just bide my time in my current job and try not to do anything within my capacity to upset the situation at hand.
