Thank you, Emily.

You may not know what you did.

You were brave and I am not feeling brave today.

You owned your situation and admitted that you need help from SSD. I have been on it for some time because I haven’t been able to keep a job, but I still feel ashamed. Why do I feel ashamed? I don’t know.

I’ve been supplementing my income with freelancing, but its been hard for me to be consistent. I still have rough days the majority of the time.

Be brave. Keep writing. And maybe if you still are looking for a job, think about freelancing or article writing. You are a very good writer.
