Mental health worker

So today, the mental health worker came by to see me. She told me that either I said I was still suicidal, or had to go back to the nursing home. She said that if I didn’t say I was or if I knew I wasn’t, they would make a safety plan and send me back there. How can I send you back to somewhere where I’m being verbally abuse and a nurse even said that she violates HEPA all the time? Over the last three months 42 places have rejected me either because of my blindness or my past with self injury. They judge me by what they see on paper, not the human being as a person. Today, my foster family came to see me, and I was sold a lot of things by her. She said that by dwelling on the negative video it was going to make my mental health state worse. Sorry, I’m using dictation. She said that by dwelling on the negative, it was going to make my mental health state worst. She said, you don’t sound very happy, and I said, well you wouldn’t be happy if you were in my situation either. I said, you weren’t born with a disability, and you don’t know how I feel. I said you haven’t walked in my shoes. When my foster brothers came into see me, it was hard for me because I hadn’t seen them in almost a year. I didn’t think at 24 that I would be homeless. I just want a home to call my own.
