First off, thank you guys for your continued support - it's amazing what a boost just reading your posts can give! Lyn, I'm soo sorry you're going through such an awful time - I have a friend with Chrons and the poor thing suffers just like you - a nasty, nasty, illness and it just doesn't seem fair that good, kind people like yourself should have to suffer with this awful disease. Please know that I am thinking of you and will look forward to reading your posts once again when you feel up to it.
And debaser's kind words about job - trouble is, you're right - it IS an very high level Exec. Sec'y job and frankly, at age 60, I'm wondering if I can still cut the mustard - this guy is VERY, VERY demanding I hear and he's gone through three secretaries in three years, as they couldn't stand the stress anymore. My only "out" is that after one year on the job you can apply for other open positions in the company - the secret is, just get your foot in the door and that's what I'm trying to do. I know I have some unaddressed medical issues - so want that insurance REEEEEAL bad and I guess I'm just stressing thinking I won't make it through the initial screening - if they told me today I needed to go to the doc for something I'd be outta luck - NO MONEY!!!! So it's just tugging at me to get through this.....I heard that you don't have to have your physical BEFORE you start the job so I'm going to start on Monday and just hope they "forget" that I haven't had it - I'm not going to call Medical Dept. - let them find me. When they see me coming in there shaking like a leaf and acting a fool, they'll problem stamp my application "WACKY - DON'T HIRE!! (ha, ha). Oh well, I guess maybe if I tried to laugh off this stuff more, maybe I wouldn't be the neurotic freak I am!!
