It Has Been Forever... Again

Sorry, I just can't seem to get into the swing of blogging on a consistent basis lately. Hopefully I can figure that out again very soon!!

My Rheumatologist appointment from the 3rd was canceled and has been rescheduled for the 10th. I am going to really push the doctor on the pain levels I am experiencing. I am hoping for different medication that actually will help with the pain and exhaustion. I also am hoping that she will consider at least talking about disability because my body just can't take the only work that I can find locally. If she isn't willing to listen and attempt to help me manage my pain or recommend a different doctor that can help me live my life more fully then I am going to have to just start calling and calling in hopes of finding someone who can help me. I am too young to have this much pain and to be this exhausted all the time.

Work has been intense and horrible to sum it up. The cafe shifts are killing me. I can't seem to get the help that I need from the other people working and end up doing way too much for my body to handle because the work needs to get done.

I applied for and interviewed for another position. The interview was this morning. It was for a desk type position. I found out this afternoon that I did not get it and that they selected another applicant. I guess that means that wasn't the answer to getting out of my current physically taxing job. I am hopeful that something else will pop up soon!!

I still need to get the "Pay It Forward" challenge boxes out!! I am still missing one address and will work on getting that so that I can complete my round of this amazingly wonderful challenge.

I am not going to promise that I will be around on a more regular basis because I just don't know that I will be. I also don't want to post daily just to post especially if all I am doing is boo hooing about my pain and other issues. I hope that you all do keep dropping by and I do promise to do better about posting... At least a little better!!


  1. Just post when you can and we'll stop by in the meantime. Sounds like you are really down about things and your health. Hang in there, pally!

  2. It's good to hear from you! I can relate to having a hard time keeping up with consistent blogging, and I don't have the medical reasons you do.

    An idea kind of hit me, I don't know if it's something you've considered before or not, but have you thought about maybe doing some tutoring?
    My mom's started her own tutoring business - she does most of her tutoring at a local library, and one of the families she goes to their home.

  3. I haven't been posting as regularly either. I think once you take any kind of a break, it's hard to get back into the swing of daily posts. I keep saying tomorrow I'm going to start back doing it and dropping regularly. Then tomorrow gets here and I put it off another day.

    I swear I'm going to be more regular next week! (wink, wink)

    I hope you get some relief from the pain soon.

  4. I certainly understand! I haven't been blogging regularly ever since the move.
    We'll keep pryaing for you, hon, that you get some relief soon! ((hugs))
