The big news around here is that I quit my job this morning. People were getting tired of driving me around, and I was working for an hour and a half twice a week. I was going to start working in Pediatrics today, but they didn't have anything for me to do. I felt pretty stupid quitting a job I wasn't even getting paid for. I was upset because too many people were too busy or too afraid to think that I could do anything beneficial for them.
I feel like there should be no limit to what I can do until I have tried.
But it's not just me I'm doing this for. I've been working with a support group for parents of visually impaired kids. I hope that the world will be more aware and confident by the time these babies are ready to go to work. I know that they will never be able to avoid painful experiences, but I hope that they will not have to prove over and over that they deserve the same opportunity to try that their brothers and sisters have.
