This new job is really working out for me. I don’t just mean the dynamics of my relationship with my client. I mean it works in all the ways my mental health usually doesn’t let things work.
It’s slow-paced so I don’t have to thrive under pressure. I don’t have sales or referral goals. I’m allowed to be somewhat nocturnal, which is an ADHD trait.
This is a job that lets me be useful to society and a community in a way that isn’t detrimental to my mental health. I could even argue that it agrees with my physical heath, considering I was able to do the job well even with no blood the past few weeks.
All in all, I don’t feel particularly disabled trying to do this job. It’s a great feeling. I really think this is something I can do long term.
I can’t actually post photos of the people I give care to. That’s a huge privacy violation. So please accept this stock photo in its place.
