It was inevitable.
I had to have my last “real” appointment with my case manager.
I am trying to be cool about it.
She is going to stay in contact with me through this lockdown and liaise with my other providers as necessary, so I still get to see her, it just won’t be “official.”
It’s really nice of her to do that. Honestly. She doesn’t have to and she doesn’t get paid to.
I can’t tell you how much it means to me, though. She has been with me through so many things and helped me to survive some truly awful stuff in the last four years.
She has inspired me and helped me grow.
I would not be where I am now without her.
I may seem like a total disaster, (and this pandemic kind of has me there along with half the planet), but if this were four years ago, I don’t know where I’d be. Locked up somewhere most likely.
She connected me to the right people at the right times and helped to encourage me and support me in ways that no one else had ever done before.
She has a heart of gold. Honestly.
I’m so lucky to have her in my life.
So today was bittersweet. The end of something and the beginning of something else I guess.
