In a week I have an appointment with the disability employment advisor, I arranged this a while ago when my head was full of ideas but now I am not sure what direction I want to take? My brain keeps getting filled with all the things that I can’t do whereas a few weeks ago I could do anything. My main worry is that I still don’t feel safe going far without someone being with me, it is hardly appropriate to ask a new boss “can Mummy come with me”? 😀 My medication has settled down so I know my moods will be good again I am just not quite sure that the seizures are fully controlled yet?
I need a job that is varied so that I don’t sit all day as I will fall asleep due to medications also I can’t stand unaided so short periods of walking and standing are best. My brain mostly works and although I have never been a genius I can still figure stuff out and learn how to do loads of new things. My hands are a bit clumsy so I wont be returning to my old clinic, people would run a mile if they saw my shaking hands brandishing a needle toward them. 😀
What would make my hunt for employment much easier would be the return of my driving licence, I don’t know when that will be? I may just have to try for some kind of local training or education course to keep me sane until I can look further afield for work? My brother suggested I need a hobby? (a bit patronising, I think?) The problem with that is the hobbies I have that don’t require fiddly hand work or great strength are a tiny bit risky for me now that I have Epilepsy, I wonder if anyone would like to teach me to fly a plane? 😀 😀
Julia is having to make a trip to America soon as her dad is unwell after a bad fall and is currently in a physical rehab unit to build his strength so that he can return home, she will need to help care for him for a while when he does. I am going to be a big brave boy and care for myself for a while, I always have before when she has been away, now is a tiny bit different. I wish I had friends around just to help me feel safe even though I wont need physical help, I do have 2 brothers who live nearby and I have Indy and Mack, so I should survive.
That’s enough whingywhineyness for now, I need to get jolly for our 31st anniversary on Wednesday. 🙂
Wiccaweys dog of the day today is Marge
Marge has come to us from Dogs In Distress in Eire. She was surrendered in to a pound together with her friend Homer and DID saved them.
Marge is gorgeous, a very sweet girl. Marge is very cheeky and friendly. She is great with other dogs and travels well. A really great family girl.
(Marge was almost adopted yesterday along with Homer but the lady broke down in tears as it was too soon after the loss of her dog) 😦
