A good decision

I think it was October or so where I was worried about self-disclosure about RSD. I didn't know whether I should tell people I'd be working with or not. Today, I met with my social work advisor, and I was honest, explaining what RSD is, and how we manage it. I was honest about the concerns I have for my internships. And, you know what? The sky didn't fall.

I'm glad I told her. Now, it's not just me looking at ways my internship will be able to work, she is to. We were able to figure out a schedule for the rest of my college career (of course, things can change), but we figured out a way to have me not take more than twelve credits a semester. It is going to be doable.

Tomorrow, I go to sign up for housing for next year. It's amazing how times flies. Barring any unforseen circumstances, it looks like I will survive my sophomore year in college. I wasn't so sure in September, but even though the RSD is worse, I'vemanaged to get strong enough that I made it through last semester and to this point. Only a little over a month to go.

Hi!
You don't know me, but I just wanted to say that I've been reading your entries, and I would want to get to know you! I can't say that I can understand or even imagine what you feel, because I'm physically healthy, thank God, but reading what you say helps me understand what a good friend of mine is feeling, just a little. Thank you! :-)

Fae.

Disclosure
Hi Nickie, isn't it great to see people react so positively to difficult disclosure when you didn't expect them to? I was recently diagnosed with a form of autism (in addition to being blind) and really thought nbo university would ever consider accepting a blind and autistic student even though I have the academic qualifications. So I was not sure whether to tell my new university, but my staff though I should tell them to avoid the unfortunate situation I was in at high school (and current college, which I will be leaving after this semester so I don't want to disclose my autism here). Much to my surprise, the people at the university I will be attending next year, all reacted very positively and seemed really willing to accommodate me.
