    I still can't find a way to get paid for what I do, specifically, building healthy relationships with animals (rehabilitation, training, etc.). I just can't people well enough to get any money for what I do, and thanks to comorbids, I can't physically work long enough or consistently enough to make money working with animals. I hate my life. Honestly, its the social expectations that make it impossible for me to make a living. Navigating systems and bureaucracies, respecting "authority", etc. all mean I can't handle the human side of a typical job. I'd rather work with organizations, but again, managers and most humans can't get along with me, and no one will pay me a livable wage to JUST train/work with animals without cleaning up after them (physical limitations). GRRRRR...Why does this have to be so effing hard??
