I've been gone for awhile do to life and all the "joys" mine seems to be full of. I am really starting to get frustrated with my counties voc rehab office. My previous counselor got fired/quiet and now I have a new one. She is very nice and professional, but English is not her first language and she has only been in this country for five years and has only spoken English fluently for three of those years. Phone conversations are a nightmare! Her voice is soft, the headset is too far away from her mouth and she is always typing/rustling paper. Neither me nor my mom can understand her half the time. We also seem to be stuck going in circles (this started way before she was hired, it's not her). They keep flip flopping about what I can do. You can go to college! No you cant. rinse and repeat. College almost happened, but due to an incompetent Disabilities Office and a course that was misrepresented (the department chair wants to get his hands on whoever wrote the course description) that will not be happening. Now I'm dealing with an employment agency that I've thoroughly overwhelmed. This poor woman has no idea what to do with me since I have so many "barriers" as her agency calls it and to paraphrase: Yeah, this won't be easy. They normally deal with people with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), Down's, CP, wounded Veterens, etc. Not someone with a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) from birth that effects memory and vision, Ehler's Danlo's Syndrome, POTS Syndrome, Gastroparesis, Dysautonomia and NonVerbal Learning Disorder (NVLD). Plus, my mom is getting a neurpsych evaluation due to memory issues and trouble staying awake (they've ruled out sleep apnea).
