I live in a cheap small town a few states over and they are always looking for CNAs for the little local nursing home and home care. Rents and home buys are cheap here, no credit check owner financing zero down, like 300 a month, some places for rent are 275. They aren't the taj mahal, but it is a relatively safe little town with a lot of services here for the retired and disabled, funds and stuff that are always all used up everywhere else. Let me know if you really need to make a change, you would be near the atlantic coast. there is a very good rheumie here and some other good docs and a huge city is an hour away. Take care, whatever you do. I've been there for so long before and finally went through several throwing out of the house ordeals and finally he quit, but it is a day to day struggle for him and I sometimes envy those who don't have to go through this with their husbands. I wonder how his drinking is supposed to be helping your illness? Well, he is sick too, but it is not a disease you can necessarily help him with. There are options if you wish to move. You could probably set your hours as a CNA or home health care and may be able to qualify for it here since we have extra resources. I really feel for you, it can be maddening. I will pray for you.
What I miss? My brain and my self-confidence. But how can you be self-confident when your body keeps betraying you every time you get yourself feeling good? I guess maybe its a yin/yang thing, yes I'll keep telling myself that....
