First of all, I've been VERY sick. This has been going on since my endometrial biopsy in April. I've been dizzy, fallen and almost passed out several times, had shortness of breath and swelling in my legs and ankles (to the point that I gained 12 pounds in 2 days!) and had chest pain and tingling in my arms. I really thought I was a goner for a while there.
I've had every test known to man, and they can't find out what's wrong with me. My neurologist gave me something for vertigo and that's helped a lot. On the way out of his office, though, I got very short of breath and fell again. I guess if you're gonna do that, the hospital is the place to be when it happens. Next thing I knew there was a lady asking me who to call to meet me at the ER and a guy with a wheelchair ready to take me there. Joel was with me and was very scared, but he did a great job! They did more testing there and still never found anything, but gave me a breathing treatment which helped, so they prescribed me an inhaler.
The next day I went back to my dr and got clearance to go back to work...and when I got there, they fired me!! They need someone who will be there and get the work done. I could've argued with them but you know what...I was too busy grabbing my stuff and leaving! I'm so happy to be outta there! I got my final paycheck today and have an application in for rent & utility assistance if I need it at the end of the month. I go tomorrow to get Joel on Medicaid. I'm really not worried about it at all. This is a great opportunity for me, I think.
I've sent out about 30 resumes in the past couple days. There are alot of jobs in the paper and online, so I'm sure I'll be able to land something soon.
Joel's been a butthead today and I'm ready to run away from home. He'll be in bed in a few minutes...thank goodness!!! His baseball tournament at the beach was last weekend, and I obviously couldn't take him (it woulda killed me, I swear) but my sister took him. It was nice to have a break so I could rest.
Hope everyone's doing well. I'll try not to be so scarce, now that I have lots of free time during the day!
