    I am a hemiparetic adult male. As a parent and a working person I am clearly limited in my abilities, but not severe enough to receive assistance or for anyone to care for that matter. I really feel pressure and anxiety my employer gives me for efficiency and speed and I still need to live my life too and strive for better and earn living wages. Life is getting harder not easier and it is directly related to my MILD form….please help me. I cant take being less than… i need a living wage and not be passed up for promotion in occupations I probably shouldn’t be in. Please help me. I can’t do it alone anymore.
