This week I signed up for Social Security’s Ticket to Work program. The program is designed to transition those of us receiving disability back into the workplace. I am doing so with trepidation, for the last time I worked, I overworked, pushed myself beyond my limits and ended up in the hospital. To re-enter the workforce in a sustainable manner I must take manageable steps, wading into the waters, not diving too deep too soon.

Thursday morning I had my first job interview in over a decade. The next day Christina and Lisa of Human Solutions, a Ticket to Work program, counseled me to revise my resume, tailoring it to the part-time administrative positions I am seeking.  They also referred me to online resources to update my software skills.

I could use prayers and encouragement as I set off on this journey back to work. Thank you.
