What’s your story?
Sad but true I have been a door mat for many people in my life. At first I didn't stand up for myself, then one day I just got tiered of holding it all in.
I started assaulting those who would do things I didn't agree with. Of course I wound up in jail more than once, probation, fines, court costs and no contact orders. At one point or two my aunt Carol took over being my payee because she didn't like what I was doing. It was so bad that she told me I would never be my own payee again.
At some point I realized my aunt just wanted to manipulate and control me just like the people who I assaulted. Now if I was fighting to gain my independence with others outside my family, why couldn't I stand up to my aunt?
I was tiered of going to jail. So I made the choice to become my own payee. I went and talked to Access Behavioral Health and successfully got evaluated and got help with payee, counseling, peer support, case management, and cbrs. It was tough but i think I'm to a point where I can become my own payee.
