“You realize your returning to work will affect your check, don’t you?” the social worker asked me warily. “I just want to make you aware of that and for you to be cognizant of it.”
“Yes,” I replied.
“What are you wanting to do?” she then asked me. “What are your goals for returning to work?”
“I want to be independent,” I replied back. “I just want to be self supporting. I want to go back to work and be a self supporting man.”
“Meet me at the hospital on the 17th and we will get things going. Just ask for Tiffany at the front desk.”
“Thank you!” I replied excitedly. “I appreciate your help!”
“Thank you sir. And have a nice day.”
