Learned Helplessness

by Wenona Gardner


I have been on disability

for 20 years ever since

I have had a breakdown at

23 years of age.

Since then I have been

dependent on caseworkers

to find my housing.

I developed learned helplessness.

I am 43 and I am just starting

a career and housing

which most people in

their twenties.

There are a lot of experiences

I am just learning to experience.
