Well, holy moly it has been almost a month since I posted. And about as equally as long since I have read blogs. Guess what? I started a new job and I am loving it. It is for a medical supply company that provides medical equipment for people with more serious medical needs. I do the billing and data entry. The best part is most people are not paying for their equipment and it’s proivded by workers compensation, automobile insurance or the Ministry. Many of the clients were born with physical and mental challenges and need specialized equipment for the activities of daily living. I bill companies and not the individual for items like power wheelchairs, hospital beds, bathroom equipment and strollers for adults. It is Monday – Friday 8:30 – 4:30 and I will be working about 32 hours a week. And the absolute best, best, best part is I get to choose my own hours. All they care about is that I get my work done and not when I do it. That means weekends off. All holidays off. I dont start work at the gawd awful hour of 7:00 and I come home when it is still light out. Yahoo! It is so nice to feel happy every day. I am not tired anymore.  I am not depressed.  I dont wake up and feel dread.  For any of you that have been reading my blog for a long time know that this is epic

Norbert  sends his regards.  He started wearing his Christmas collartoday.   He is very happy too.

  1. Birdie! I swear to whatever god there is, that I have been thinking about you the last few days and wondering if you’d gotten a new job yet and if so, if you liked it. And you have! I am SO happy for you! Hurray! Much love from me…Mary

  2. The best news ever!!!! Unless, of course, Norbert found himself a girlfriend. That would be good too. Congrats to you birdie 💜💜

  3. That is just wonderful, wonderful news! The tone of what you wrote comes through loud and clear! Your old job was beating you down, now you are being treated like a human again with this job. So glad you took this on! Merry Christmas to Norbert. -Jenn

  4. Woo hoo! I’ve been worried every time I looked at my blog directory and you hadn’t updated for so long. Your new situation goes to show we can almost always count on there being something better around the corner — we just have to make a space for it. (A good reminder for me too.)
    I listened to an interesting podcast (Waking Up with Sam Harris) about depression and addiction, and learned a few things. Your experience of not being depressed in this job bears out what Harris’s guest was saying about treatment for depression requiring more than a prescription.
    Welcome back!
