    Good for you, Elaina. Wellness and self-improvement is not tied to any sort of schedule. Perhaps your words will help others come to understand this better.

    sorry that you lost your job. It can be a struggle for me to accept my limitations. I’m self-employed, so I have to show up all the time – but it sucks much of the time. It really, really does.

    I took two years off of working to work on my mental health. It was the best decision I ever made. I got on ssi so I didn’t have to worry about the financial part. I needed that time off. During that time, after about a year I started taking classes and was very successful at it. Then I returned to work this year. I’m doing a lot better after taking the time work on my mental health. I still have some bad days but they don’t last as long. Plus during the time I wasn’t working I found the right med combination. Now I work part time. And ssi allows you to work and still receive benefits for 3 years.
