I recently posted about applying for a job working with mentally handicapped people. Well I got the job and starting working wednesday. Currently on my way to work my 3rd shift and i just felt like I needed to share a little something about my experience there so far. 

Ive been working with a woman who is diagnosed severe mental handicapped, low functioning autism, and ADHD. This woman is 56 years old, has lived in an institution her entire life, and spends her days rocking back and fourth humming the same melody on repeat. She needs help with everything in her life. 

Anyways im about to get off the bus, i just wanted to share that this experience has left me baffeled as to why i have spent so much time feeling sorry for myself.
