my sister called me and offered me a job. it will be caretaking and its 11 an hour. right now it will be two days a week until i know its steady and then i am going to go fulltime and go parttime at my original job. after a while i will quit the job im at now for the caretaking as i will be bringing in more money. i dont know about insurance but i get insurance through the state. i will get paid to basically go to the persons house and run errands for her, go grocery shopping, light cleaning and talking to her. maybe even fix a meal for her. i can maybe even make this person my friend and enhance her life a bit. i know it will be hard as they are elderly but i was my moms caretaker and my grandmas caretaker. only difference is this time i will get paid to do it. i go tomorrow to put the application in and my sister says i am a guarentee and i will even do orientation tomorrow to. i will have to pay 20 for a TB test and a background check in which they take out of the first couple checks. i will be paid biweekly and it will be extra money almost as much as i make full time. im excited.

Go for it. That is the only job I can look for. I had a friend who did it and said of them are crabby(aren't we all) and others were sweet. Sometimes when they are sleeping, they don't care if you sit down. They're old, they know what pain is. Check it out. Also, word of mouth will spread.

Thanks,,now just say a prayer my back can handle it, NO disc in L3/4 and L4/5 but I swear to God I'll die trying. My husband has put me down for so many years, it's hard to think I'll Make it. Before I met him,I was fast track corporate. Course, that wasbefore fibro, chronic pain and depression. I think depression will lighten greatly when I start making some money and Katie can leave the SOB!!

Thanks for the rant-congrats on your job wg

Sounds like you have thought this through carefully and have the transition worked through as well.  I wish you the very best and celebrate.

yeah   yeah yeah thx turn turn turn maggiee.........just a tease jamiee. I'm up withverybad back pain (2nd nite).have you thought anymore about"exorcising demons" from the past? Such a frightening place to confront, but put on you battle gear (fire up the bagpipes-my fave) and rushin..
 
The general concensus perceives mentally ill in us as someone who is weak, who has given up, someone with no inner strength... Au contraire, tostill be functioni.ng under this cloud tales a large measure of courage
 
I had some one tell me "Oh, it can't be all that bad
, you're sitting here having a drink' My vert sarcastic reply was "Baby, if you tried to walk a mile in my shoes, you wouldm't make it ten yards!" I believe he moved down a barstool or two-lolol.
 
How am I do this job. I knowintellectually I could do it in my sleep but sitting for so long.
My husband is unmedicated bi-polar (predominantly manic, explosive tempers, irritation at my very existence. Our ddaughter actually hates him and know she is defiant, irritable disrepectful (more so thanaverage kid) I cannot remember the last time he said something positive and loving about us. I can handlr it, I have agarison wall built around me but, he is her male role model and he puts her down and she hates herself. She and I do for testing and counseling for her. Both parents ill give her80% chance of becoming ill.
 
But goal is to put away enough $ topay deposit at apt. complex and finally, have peace in the valley. I hope it isd not such a pipe dream.
 
 
I can be a busybody but do you have children, c family close by? Where do you live in Aus.  always wanted to see aus and NZ Do you have friends and get out? You sound a much better adjusted soul thank most of us
 
No sarcasm intended but healinng compassion to you to yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah

thx 4 the post maggie.(i certainly hear you) thx 4 the healing compassion, i do need it. no children, unable, turning 39, try and get out, not that much at the moment. sister close by, mum and family in melbourne, oh dear not as adjusted as you would think, but i try. oh i live in geelong.

sorry about your back pain. demons dr gave me some clues. will follow his beautiful wisdom. i hate that consesus about the mentally unwell. and i hate using using the word hate!!!!!!!!!! so you understand how i feel about it. good on you for telling that idiot who said it can't be that bad. i understand pain with my feet and back. people need to learn to be compassionate!!!!!!! and to not judge.

my compassionate prayers are that you do have and acheive peace in the valley and that it aint a pipe dream, that it is real. talk soon my friend. keep strong.

Worried girl, glad the job is yours. Maggie you are right. It takes great toighness to carry on and feel like we do. Someone told me that I didn't seem depressed to them. They didn't know the effort it took me to be able to carry on the conversation nor the turmoil that was going on inside but I was still able to carry on an intelligent conversation. I have gotten very good at wearing a mask and when I can't put it on I stay to myself. It is one of the hardest things I've ever had to do. Thank God for the medicine. Now I'm able to try to sort out some of what's going on inside.

Praying with and for all of us.

well i may have a client but i have to take her to t he doctor on monday and get her doctor to sign off on it. if so there i go, my next decision is do i go full time there and go part time at my current job. i will bring home more money at the other job but i lose my benefits. my boss will probably be upset and it will be tiring but i figured it out if i go full time at the other job i will bring home 600 more a month than at my current job. decisions decisions decisions

If you lose your benefits, will you lose insurance too? Or did you have it? It is good to have insurance, I would'nt want to see you lose that.

I hope that this works out for you. I know you have been excited about getting this new job. Kudos to you for getting a client.

Keep us posted.

Hugs, Karen
 
Just read your first post again, you get insurance through the state.  That is good.  Just make sure you don't get too much income and have them take it away from you.  Or does your income matter?  I really am happy for you!!!  Keep us posted...
