It is January 2017, and time for another Virtual Coffee Date. Go ahead and grab a hot beverage, and I will tell you what has been happening.
For some time now, I have felt exhausted frequently, and had little desire to do anything. It has been difficult for me to get things done.
First of all, I want to apologize for not posting in a really long time. I wanted to ask fellow patients with epilepsy for advice.
In September I starting Blogging University’s Writing 101 course. I really liked it and was learning a lot about writing. It was especially helpful to see some of the posts from some of the other bloggers with more writing experience. It has been a few weeks since I have posted anything. I had to stop partway through my Writing 101 course.
The semester is only a few weeks along and I am already an anxiety ridden mess. I procrastinated on grading papers, and have some deadlines coming up. I want to have some time to enjoy some personal time, while still being able to get most of the stuff graded. I know procrastination is bad. Why do I always do it?
This summer I have focused on trying to improve my little corner of the world financially. Almost every day during the summer, I was sitting in front of the computer working on lessons and applying to jobs.
Today I am feeling a great deal of frustration. I wanted to resolve my health insurance problem quickly, find a place of my own to live in, and get full-time employment. Things did not go as planned.
In Upcoming Interview, I talked about an interview that I had in one of the colleges that I work for. Despite the fact that I was incredibly nervous, I thought I did okay. A few weeks later I found out that the position was cancelled.
In ‘I refuse to change neurologists!‘, I talked about the current problem that I am having with my health insurance. I tried calling various people, and even went to my hospital’s patient financial councilors who help you with this kind of thing. Unfortunately, I did not get the result I was hoping to hear.
I am feeling more than a little frustrated with my lack of results. I can only see two ways things can play out:
- If I continue my quest for a full-time job, I would get health insurance benefits, financial stability, and eventually a place of my own.
- I may have to cave in and see a new neurologist.
I sent a message to my current neurologist to see what strategy she recommends, but have not heard back from her yet. When I talked to someone else about this, and they thought it was great that I had insurance that was not dependent on your job. Am I wrong to think that getting a full-time job will solve all my problems?
