But he’s a helluva worker. The company I work for hires veterans and disabled people. I’ve seen several come and go over the years. So our little janitorial crew has one veteran, and three disabled people including me. I’m writing this so maybe someone will think, “Boy, if he could work so can I”.
The new guy talks to himself, he breaths kind of loud, he gets a crazy look in his eye if you bug him, he looks kind of different and he is out of synche somehow with what’s going on. Poor guy is shy, lol. He’s this big, mean , scary looking guy but when you talk to him, he’s like a little kid. Anyway, I think it is amazing that this guy can not only hold down a job at all and he even gives me competition.
My point is that some places will hire people who have obvious problems. You just have to look hard for them. Here in California I’ve been in a couple of vocational programs that are exclusively for the mentally ill. They have gotten me a few jobs in my time where the employer knew I was disabled. At one job they got me at Macy, the employer didn’t know I was ill but they let my counselor sit in on the job interview to help me. Don’t ask me how that worked, I can’t explain it. Anyway, anybody thinking of getting a job should take heart.
