The Next Step

Paths (Providing Access to Health Solutions) has been helping me with anxiety issues. My Paths Health Coordinator has authorised funding for CBT appointments, Doctor’s appointments and a gym membership. I check in with her once a month by telephone to update her on my progress.

She called me this week for a chat. My confidence has increased a great deal with the help of medication, CBT and exercise and I feel I am ready to take the next step. She referred me to another agency which helps people like me get back to work.

I received a phone call this morning from a lovely lady who will help me with my CV, job applications and finding the right job and environment for me to work in. We are meeting at a coffee shop next week for a chat. I’m a little nervous but excited too.



Love KB

  4. I will keep you in my prayers. I broke my right wrist in two places 8 years ago and I also have osteoarthritis, so I do not have a lot of strength in my hands and cannot work as quickly as some people who have no such disability. I also struggle with depression and cannot handle a lot of stress and have been seeing an employment counselor (which is free and paid for by Quebec's job market) who helps people with various disabilities, both mental and physical, to get back into the work force. She has been amazing and I am very grateful for the help she is giving me. Thanks to her help and the prayers being offered up on my behalf by friends, I may be working next month, which will be a 6 month program where you work in a place suited to your needs and by working in a less stressful environment, gives you the experience and confidence needed to get back into the work force. So it looks like you and I are going through the same thing! And this employment counselor also helps with C.V. and anything else work related we may need.
