I retired from the State of Texas in 2003 after 30 yrs. I began work in 1973 at Abilene State School. The best years for me were pre-1980 when I moved to San Angelo. Before '80' it was the real deal. What you saw was what you got. I got to work at 2, observed the 15-20 ambulatory males for a couple of hours before going to supper, then back to the dorm so the other guy and I could eat before undressing the guys and running them in to the communal shower, put their underwear on then up to bed. When I transferred back in '92', I was put on a non-ambulatory dorm with 20 males. We would get to work at 6 a.m., go down to the bedrooms to get the guys up into their wheelchairs for breakfast. We would feed them breakfast, then back to the dayroom. It was on the schedule the guys would have special skills training until lunch time, but the only regular activity that went on was pencil whipping the training sheets because the employees hated trying to train the guys. It always seemed so stupid, the things we were supposed to be training - holding a pencil, or snapping two "shirt sleeves" together. It seemed stupid because the guys always did the same things - throw the pencil down, pick up the board with the shirt parts on it and throw it, etc. So, to us, we got the same result by pencil whipping and putting down what "they" wanted to see. Then, once or twice a year the state inspectors would come by, and to show them we had adequate employee-to-individual ratio, people we had never seen before (much less knew their names) would show up on the dorms the week the inspectors were there, acting like they worked there every day of the year. It was all such a big farce. The regular employees hated it, because of the fake employees that would come out of nowhere to work, and the incredible stress the workers felt having the inspectors there, watching us "train" the individuals. That's enough for now.

This is a government run facility. From 1900, very old. Most everything is pretty basic. The people are allowed some freedom to go around the grounds. I worked there as a volunteer and the place has a few quirks, most everyone there takes a lot of meds, even the full time workers. They have a cemetery that is quite large, it seems lots of people just die at the school and get buried right there.
