Happy New Year! & checking in

Anything on your mind that isn't about RLS? It's nice to realize that there is life beyond this disease and have an opportunity to get to know our online family in a different context.

Happy New Year! & checking in

Post by leggo_my_legs »

Happy 2018, all! Wishing you the best of health and love this year.

I am just checking in briefly...I am knee-deep in an employment transition, hoping a second interview goes well later this week. If not I don't have a lot else in the pipeline right now.

Sleep wise, slight improvement...most days I don't wake up wanting to cry, but I'm still not rested either.

Not much to say but wanted to pop in.

Hey, leggo! Happy New Year to you, too. Wondered how you were doing. Best of luck to you on the interview. Please do not be a stranger once you get settled.

Hope the interview went well. It's too bad you're still not resting properly. Do you have more appointments coming up, to try to figure it out?

Thanks all. I got the job!!! Social worker working with older adults. It will be a few months before I can start...healthcare credentialing process is lengthy.

So relieved...my job situation the past 3 years has been tenuous and had horrible health coverage. Tenuous because job was full time permanent but based on a state contract. I knew the job would eventually end in layoff, and it did on Oct 31.

Yes I am going back to see Dr. B. in a few weeks.

YAY!!!

Hey, let me know when you will be here. I am here full time now. We are in the process of signing a lease for a short term furnished rental so will be moving in a couple weeks, but that will take about one car load since we only have clothes to take, lol. My guess is I will be quite available.

Thanks all. Yes it is. Still a bit concerned as there are a few more hoops to jump through before I am allowed to start. There is a 2 part acceptance process. 1) They want to hire you (check!) 2) Your background is fully vetted and you are given the handshake. I am on step 2 maybe for another month or 2.

Waiting game is a little stressful. Finances are getting a little sketchy too. I can make it until April but I just don't want anything to go wrong because that would set me back months in terms of finding something else. Therefore I am still looking a bit.

Hard to take a deep breath and let what happens happen at times like this, isn't it?

So well said. It really is.

Feel that I'm waiting for either success or professional embarrassment.
