I want to thank everyone for tuning into the blog and for buying my memoir Left of the Dial.
The takeaway is that you don’t have to collect SSI the rest of your life. A portion of individuals diagnosed with schizophrenia might have to. Yet as of today I can confidently state that if you want to get a job, you deserve to try. And if the first job doesn’t work out you can try another.
Like I’m famous for saying my life didn’t take off until I turned 35 and found a better job I liked and was good at.
Giving up hope is not the answer.
I went to library school with a woman who was in her early seventies.
It’s not ever too late for the tide to turn in a person’s life.
I say this with confidence:
The tide can turn.
