Today, I started my release plan. Even starting it is an eye opener that my release date may be right around the corner, dependent upon how my case manager utilizes my release plan. One of my mentors is helping me and her plan is completely different. She has a car, house, support waiting for her when she gets out. I’m on my own, which was my own decision, so it is interesting to see how two completely different lives can collide and benefit each other.
