Finally, Work

After two years being stuck behind four walls, I think I'm ready to finally re-enter the workforce. My arms will be both back to new and hopefully my spirits will be too.

Obviously, there are going to be disappointments. Maybe two or three jobs that I go through as a person with epilepsy, but I know that there's something out there for me.

I'm trained in graphic design, but I feel like working with others with epilepsy could be my true calling. Whether that be at the Epilepsy Foundation, a hospital, or who knows where else. As a person living with epilepsy, I feel like I can give very good advice on how to go on living a daily life with this debilitating disorder.

As far as graphic design goes, I see myself working in the non-profit sector. I just feel like helping others is the best way for me to live my life to the fullest.

Money is obviously an issue. Sara and I have been living hand-to-mouth since I developed epilepsy, and it's only getting worse. I don't know what to do. Money is money, I don't need much but I need enough to pay our bills on time and take some of the pressure away from Sara.

When I was let go from my last couple jobs (the most recent one was because of the seizures), it hurt me deeply and I still haven't quite got over that. Hopefully, even though setbacks are inevitable, I can put them aside in my mind and charge ahead.

My arm will be healed by the end other year. If anyone has and good leads for me, it would be greatly appreciated.
