Friday I saw my eye doc. No inflammation for the first time in over a year.
Per that doc, I don’t have to get back on antiinflammatory meds unless I have other symptoms that need treated, like joint pain and fatigue.
So far, so good.
My vision still isn’t fantastic, and once I get health insurance again (if that miracle occurs), I need to see the kind of eye doctor that prescribes contacts and glasses.
But I did two things that I haven’t really done in almost a year. I drove a car and not just to the grocery store less than a mile away, and I worked.
I am not foolish enough to believe that I can jump right back in to full time work. I signed up with an agency that does health screenings for corporations and I was able to do five hours of ht/wt/vitals etc without dying.
I had some iffy moment with dizziness, difficulty with memory, difficulty lifting things. But I worked and didn’t require EMS response.
Today, I feel like ick. I think its more of the fibro and a combo of emotional stress.
Yes, the money is still an issue. Add in the fact that my family (read: father) is still punishing me for looking for alternatives to asking him for money. I think that emotional distress is causing more pain than my disease processes combined.
But, I’m happy I am able to do SOMETHING. And if anyone is willing to pay for a private nurse to advise their health decisions, I’m always looking for that type of work.
Until then, I hope I get more work through this agency, and the goal is to be back to full time work in the next six months. Providing that I don’t experience a relapse or any other fun health issues.
Thank you for reading!!
