What can you work as? I thought you were working in a pharmacy already?

Are there employment agencies near you? Give them your resume/cv and they might be able to find you work.

I do odd jobs around the clubhouse occasionally. Most of the time my back hurts like hell. I hauled hay in high school, so I’m willing to work hard if I am able, but right now my back hurts like hell when I try.

If you have to ask, you probably aren’t ready to work. Can you get on disability?

I agree with this.

Maybe you’re too slow at certain jobs. But maybe there’s certain other jobs that you’re faster at.

Yeah, the pharmacists and all the other workers at my pharmacy don’t exactly look like they’re overworked. I’ve been going there over three years and most of the time they don’t have to move that fast.

that makes sense. There’s no shame in having support for a problem or disability, everyone has their struggles. Ours is not so cut and dry, but I wish more compassion to others who have schizophrenia. It’s not easy.
