Disability Finale

I’ve exhausted my state disability, it runs out the end of next month.  Of course, I already know that the feds have denied me.  I’ve spoken to a DI attorney  and she felt from talking to me that as long as I felt I could do some sort of work, I can work.  According to DI I am capable of doing my usual work, and lately I’ve been feeling maybe I can.  Today I applied for some executive assistant positions and sent my resume to an employment agency.  Maybe I should trust my government is correct in their assessment of me.

I’ve been feeling a little more clear headed lately, though I still have some serious moments.  I plan to get used to the moments of blankness and trying to work with them instead of against them.  How do I make use of feeling blank?  I have no idea.  But I’m going to hang on to this feeling that maybe I can hold a similar job to my last one.  I’m going to have to work on my typing, though, my speed has dropped due to the stiffness I get in my hands.  Only thing I can do is work through it.

Maybe the new medication is working and my mood is finally improving, I find myself somewhat looking forward to going back to work.  Today was the first day I really started looking for a different type of position, including applying for a couple personal assistant positions.  Not what I ever wanted to do, but I’m thinking of doing something a bit different, so working with creative Hollywood types.  The thing is, they expect you to be at their beck and call 24 hours a day, and I’m pretty used to the 9-5 job, but they pay really well.  I like being able to go home at 5PM, but maybe it’s time I tried something else.   Maybe in doing something a little bit different, I will be able to compensate for the very real problems I have and minimize the potential for damage.

I will miss blogging every day, though I hope to continue once I do go back to work.  I will miss the friends I’ve made, but will try to find a way to stay in touch with them.

  1. Good luck with the creative hollywood types! I hope you don’t need a permatan to work there! And tell me..are you appletona venue? or apple to..no that doesn’t work. Why are you appletonavenue? Just before you leave, I have to know! 🙂

  2. Wow, There has definitely been some changes in things…but for the good I’m sure. I’m so glad that you are feeling stronger.and looking forward to looking at some different jobs. I hope though that you are able to find one that isn’t too taxing as far as length of hours though because of the fatigue factor you don’t want to creep back in…

    I certainly will understand that you won’t be able to blog as much as with working and having to fit everything else in but will hope to hear at least once in awhile. I have come to consider you a friend ..albeit ‘online and blogging’ but there are many types of friendships nevertheless. So take care and hope to hear about your job when you find just the right one….Diane
