I normally work two hours on Monday at 158 Bakery in South Portland Maine. However a month ago I was offered two more hours as long as I worked four hours in a row. Because of my ADD and social anxiety I had been unable to work more than two hours at a time but recently have managed to concentrate for longer and work four hours on Thursday.

We managed a move in a surprisingly short time (five months). I'm successfully moved into a room at E St, South Portland thanks to my higher powers and parents and relatives who supported us financially. I enjoy most of the residents who are mentally or physically challenged in some way but are wonderful people.
I enjoyed my first three AA meetings at the noon time men's group, although they cuss too much for my taste. There's cute guys there but…Continue
