Well, the past 3 days have been really out of this world … On Thursday I got a phone call and a pre-interview for a job…Friday I had an interview… Saturday I had the kitchen manager interview … and then tomorrow I have the ‘shadowing’ portion of the interview…then after that if things are still working out I have all the screenings, testing, and checks … and hopefully, maybe, if I’m lucky I might become employed again. I so hope so… YES… I’ve never had a process like this …go this way… like… shocking. It almost truly gives me hope about it.
And, when I was talking to them, no one of them cared about the issues with my brain at all. They were fine with it… They don’t mind all of my problems because I have experience and they’re still happy to talk to me. That’s so not something I’m use to having people say to me. It’s really hard to accept that anyone can really be ok with me… and my issues. it almost gives me hope for humanity sometimes. I even gave them all the information for OVR and they even let me know how unnecessary that it’s going to be for them to have it.
I talked to my lawyer again on Thursday too… got some updates… it’s starting to look like the answer for my life is going to be next spring. .. So, hopefully things will get pushed forward…but I don’t know how this is going to work with me trying to get a job to support the family… She really appreciated me this time … I gave her all the information I’ve collected on PPRX and LVHNRCC and a few other things to help her other clients. She said she hopes that I finally get some luck… because I did a good thing. I really hope so too… right about 20 minutes after that conversation I got the phone call about the pre-interview!
um… another good thing is that once the paperwork gets here we might actually get pre-approved for a mortgage through PHFA, they’re the people who work on helping disabled people get houses. I did most of the work all last week when I was pretty quiet. I did so much time on the phone, but we have the credit score and that really…for the first time… makes me believe that it’s going to happen. and PHFA also will help in making sure that the house is fit and accessible. That makes me so excited.
Davis and I had a good day yesterday too. we went out to just wander around… I think I should have used my chair because today I’m in a lot of pain… I really want to call the neuro and see if I can get some baclofen for the pain I’m in. I’ve been having crazy contortions lately…
this is how my hand has been since about 4 this afternoon. Really, really painful … I had the ones in my back yesterday too… the ones that were so painful I almost wanted to just give up and cry. I wanted us to have a nice day too… and we did. I got to spend time playing with a puppy (that was some great therapy for me) and I didn’t even copy his cute puppy sounds… and we just had a lot of fun.
Now I need to try to get back to my coupons, dishes, laundry and other boring adult stuff that should almost be done before I go to bed. Tomorrow I “work” for 2 hours… then I want to try to get the rest of this stuff done. Hopefully tomorrow I’ll feel up to getting a few more things done. This morning I tried to get up at 6 to get work done but I just was unable to do it. I felt soooooooooooooo sick… I’m glad I kinda pulled it out so I could get to the interview, but I wanted to make sure the house was put back together already… I’ve been so lazy lately with all the pain and things.
