And I'm completely finding myself in disbelief that this is what it's come to.
My child is disabled. My mom is disabled. I care for them. I worry about them both, 24/7.
My professional career, which began, years ago, as a temp job, has become completely and totally about disability. [and before you go there, it's totally about insuring against disability, not actually helping those with disabilities, unless you consider those who have become disabled after already having been insured, AND you are rich. It's not noble work.]
