Each summer, I have to tell the government what I do and how much I make a year to be eligible to receive assisted care. I critique Speech outlines for a Speech instructor at the technical college earning two hundred dollars a year. It’s not much money. Each year the instructor writes a letter to my social worker detailing my employment and earnings. It’s ridiculous. It makes me feel like a criminal. But that is how the system works. I am a number in the system.
