What Happens When You Relentlessly Ask Around For An Aide

OK.  So I’m laying around in bed this morning and I am deciding what I am going to do today.  I have a few projects hanging over my head.  I have school starting in a few weeks, but I labeled my books last night.  The Independent Living thing won’t happen for a long time, but I can keep searching for an aide.  I get up and slowly get ready to have breakfast.  I hear Grandma starting breakfast.  She’s making biscuits and eggs.  I finish eating and drinking my hot chocolate.  I take my time getting ready for the day.

And then, I decide to go on Facebook and advertise the vacant aide position.  I put an ad in two local groups and within minutes someone answers me.  His sister does aide work.  He said that she’s very patient.  He gave me her number and I called and left her a message, which was very nerve-racking because I use my augmentative communication device to talk on the phone and the voice isn’t always clear and not everyone understands my message.  Thankfully, she called me back and Grandma spoke to her and I have a meeting with her on Tuesday.

Let’s hope it works
