My meeting w/ my DVR counselor was today, and I'm happy I went. I know there's gonna be stuff I won't enjoy in the process here, but I'm looking forward to a lot of help the DVR has.

I'll be going out to a center for the blind/visually handicapped for an assessment, to see what they can suggest for tools for me. Mobility, etc., training will help, and it sounds like there's a lot of options that they have that I prob haven't even thought of. It'll be interesting to see what happens there.

There's also a program through Goodwill that works with handicapped individuals and the I/T field, which I'm really interested in. It basically provides networking services via monthly meetings, as well as an I/T worker already in a company (bigger companies like Northwestern Mutual, etc.) to help me towards getting a job. Because you have to be in school as part of the program requirements, there's extra stuff there too, like scholarships.

I know I'm not gonna enjoy some of what's due in my future, but OTOH, some of this stuff sounds like it'll help immensely. Big smiles today! Now, to keep myself from taking a nap today so I can go to bed early... hopefully I can break the napping habit quickly enough... especially if I get a job! *hophop*
