I am especially excited for you about the vocational rehab. What you're talking about sounds a lot like the DARS thing in Texas that Matt has gotten hooked up with. The thing that's so great about accessing these vocational rehab services is that not only will they facilitate you (and Matt) getting trained in job skills that don't put undue pressure on weaknesses, but they are hooked up with employers who are willing to take on people with disabilities and they are rewarded with tax benefits - which encourages them to stick with it. And the ultimate goal they have is to take people with disabilities and help remove the obstacles to their being able to function as independently as possible. It just doesn't get any better than that.

> Really. I do. The no benzos under any circumstances rule kinda sucks, but other than that...awesome. They're professional, they're courteous, they've even got me hooked up with vocational rehab. Vocational rehab is talking about some sort of computer training to get me situated in a good job eventually. Awesome, right?
