Life Stays the Same

Sunday, October 17, 2010

Life seems to be staying the same for me lately. My back still is hurting. I am getting closer to being unemployed again. I haven't been able to save any of the money I earned; it all goes to my pile of bills. My social life is pretty much non-existent. And my self-esteem is in the negative numbers now. But I am determined to keep plugging away and maybe things will start to fall into place for me. I'm going to start with the basics again and take one moment at a time.

Short Week

Friday, October 15, 2010

The short work week definitely threw my somewhat-schedule off. Well, that and my back spasms. At least I know that I can sleep as long as I want in the morning, That may be the best medicine for my back at this point anyway. I'm just so tired of having to be careful or having to rest because of my back. If I could only go back in time about 4 years and have a re-do. I know kids still have re-dos; why not adults?

    If you find the way to have a redo please post as I am interested too. emoticon Always take the time to treat yourself as well as you can when you can. Are you a candidate for disability? You and I seem to have many of the same issues and I just wondered. I hope you have a great weekend! emoticon

My Back Hates Me Today

Thursday, October 14, 2010

I thought my small muscle spasms that I had Tuesday would be gone away by today. I was wrong. Now they are big muscle spasms. But I have a prescription for just such occasions and decided that today was an occasion. I think I'll be going to bed early tonight.

    I have been having the same problem with my back and today I am going to take it easy and hopefully with a little TLC and some medication, it will feel better by the start of a new work week. Feel better soon.

Back to Work - But How Long?

Wednesday, October 13, 2010

I went back to work this morning. I found out that the other temporary workers were asked if they wanted Monday off. Only one took advantage of the offer. Not a great feeling for the self-esteem. At least I can say that I know I was a little rusty, and went into the job knowing it was a learning experience and a great way to get re-acclimated in the workforce. But I know I will have to sharpen my skills a little and pick up speed. This will come with time and practice. Now to make the time....(I will!).

    Keep on going! You are doing it! Every day is a new day ... a little better, a little faster, a little more accurate. You're making big changes and you're doing it well.

    emoticon You will get it done. if each job was different there may have been separate issues involved. Let them tell you if there is a special problem don't try to read minds. You may be seeing things correctly but maybe someone can give you a real answer. emoticon

Making the Best of the Day

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

I've got one more unscheduled day off at my temporary job (the powers that be still haven't planned the work for me to do .) So, I'm going to make the best of it. I rescheduled my doctor appointment for this morning. I've got errands I'm going to run. I'm going to visit my mom and mother-in-law. My hair will be cut and no longer drive me crazy (for a month!). I have a counseling appointment tonight. Then, I'm going to call it a night and go to bed early.

I'm anxious to see if the supervisors really will have something for me to do tomorrow. I hate to sit around all day in a little office with nothing to do but stare at the walls. I realize I am getting paid to do nothing, but I think of all the things I could be doing outside of work.
