My moment of change was the first day I came to the Illinois Center for Rehabilitation and Education – Roosevelt. It was a new place and I had to get use to the new faces and the new experiences; like the classes, teachers and at night I had to get use to sleeping somewhere new. There were many aspects of this facility that differed from my former schedule. I was use to waking up at 7:00a.m. Now I have to wake up at 6:00a.m. And that one-hour seems like a big difference. Every morning I have to take a shower, get dressed, take care of my personal care, make my bed, eat breakfast, and take my medicine all of this before 8:30. Before I came to ICRE-R I had help doing some of these everyday chores. It has changed me because now I have more responsibility.
