Hi everyone.... I hope you are all doing well. I haven't posted since February so I thought it was time for an update.
Since my last post I went to my doctor in February and he put me on Lexapro. After talking with him I came to the realization that my depression was not only over my husband's unemployment but quite possibly Peri-menopause (I'm 43 years old so it's not too far-fetched an idea). I made an appointment with my Gyno. and after telling him everything, he said Lexapro is what he would have prescribed too. The Lexapro has helped... I am no longer crying at the drop of a hat, my family and my students aren't cringing and expecting a tirade everytime I open my mouth and I'm feeling "comfortable in my skin" again!
Now for my husband... HE FINALLY FOUND A JOB!!! He got a phone call from a local nursing home/rehab. facility last week regarding his resume I had posted on one of the many "find-a-job" websites. He started working this Wednesday in Housekeeping. The funny thing is that the day after he got the phone call, he received a letter from Social Security about his disability claim.... He's eligible to receive Social Security Disabliity! The down fall is that the job is full time so he'll make a little more a month than they said he's allowed. The caseworking is looking into how to handle everything since he got the job after the determination. He'd rather be working full time anyway so everything's working out for the best. I know he just started his job but he's already so much happier.... I hope it works out.
Sorry for the long post but I just wanted to update you all.
