Anger does that. I want to forgive but it is a tall order most days. It takes work. I did go clothes shopping this week though and without spending a lot I got some great stuff. I got a multicolored scarf that's made of viscose and wool. The colors are deep blue and blue green on the other side. There is also grey, plum and violet on the scarf. That cost 4.99 at ARC Value Village and looks new. I got a plum colored Lands End shirt to go with... Thu, 26 Sep 2013 18:05:41 EST Searching through the Rubble for Remnants of My Self http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5492937 Well, it's my big weekend off. I only get one of those every other week. I didn't call a friend yet this weekend. I've been a little preoccupied by finding pants in my size. I don't have enough work clothes. I only have one pair of Khaki jeans and one pair of Khaki trousers to my wardrobe. Sounds pretty bad and it is. I know I neglect myself this way because of the way I grew up. There was always money for my dad's wardrobe but none for mine. The one or two pairs of jeans I had in high school... Sun, 22 Sep 2013 16:23:09 EST Still in the Running but a Little Out of Breath http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5491299 It's been an interesting two days. Yesterday I had a job interview and a doctor appointment and the realization that I really don't like my regular physician. I'm not going to say too much about that here but I think I will switch to someone else by the time it's time for a new checkup. I figured if I get the job I might be under another insurance program anyway. Right now its just pretty nerve wracking applying for health care programs and hoping the county approves it. I have no other way t... Fri, 20 Sep 2013 16:24:59 EST Under Pressure http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5489481 Well, I am back to work at both my part time jobs. I am upset that I don't have insurance coverage. I am applying for Medical Assistance or Minnesota Care. Whichever program fits my needs I guess. I have an interview for a full time job with decent benefits tomorrow. It seems the best choice for my current situation. I wish my health didn't fall apart and that I didn't need these followup appointments I have scheduled but I know I have worked to put a lot of tax money into the health care sy... Wed, 18 Sep 2013 16:49:03 EST Cry or Die http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=5486444 Just getting back to work after a scare last week. I had the beginning stage of a heart attack on Thursday and was at Methodist hospital at the time, taking my daughter to her sleep study appointment. So they took me down to the E.R and did some blood tests and ex rays. They gave me oxygen and baby aspirin. One of the blood tests they ran showed that an enzyme detected heart disease. Is that creatin? I don't know as I am not savvy to cardiac jargon. <BR> <BR> The cardiologist ordered an ang... Sun, 15 Sep 2013 18:04:42 EST
