Humiliating

July 17, 2012

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.
