A few weeks ago I lost my job after pinching a nerve in my neck. Now this did not happen at work but it did affect my performance at work. Doctors are not sure how it happened but my job still let me go. I have started with my wife, granted we do not work together but it is for the same company. You see I grew up around people with intellectual disabilities and helped take care of them. So I decided to get back into the field.
I currently work with a young man that has autism. Yes he can be a handful at times but he is very loving. He loves going to museums, to the park, and Red Robin. I must be doing something right because the agency I work with is looking to put me with three more clients all the same week. It takes a special kind of person to work in this field. You have to have patience, a good heart, and a positive attitude.
