What i got for me from Daiso while shopping for Maree’s prize :)
So, after Easter, I get to go and have a “job capacity assessment”.
This will apparently tell sennalink what support I need in order to find a job. Or something.
It means to me that I get to say yes, I feel like mt mental health and subsequent incompetence are leaving me unemployed.
And that they then get to put me through “job readiness” courses and placements.
plus get to note my “black marks” against me.
and tell me I’m not bad off enough to really need help.
I DO want to work. I’d rather be able to convince someone I can do work I have experience in. Doesn’t have to be speech. There’s a whole heap of disability and youth support I have the skills to do, but not the confidence, references or the, yes again, CONFIDENCE, to get into.
So we’ll see. I’m slightly scared to ask for reports from my healthcare team, too. I know it’s for the best, but I don’t want it on paper!!!!
