Hi! It's Me, I think. I am kind of sad today. My son has been out of work ( software engineer- computer programmer ) since last June except for a several week stint around the holidays last year.
Today they had to face some tough decisions. It looks like they will have to sell their house.As a Mom I feel so terrible and inadequate. That's the humanness in me speaking because we are believers and I know God has a plan.
He is in control, not us. I am unable to work but try to help w/ housework and take care of my granddaughter when needed.I just wish I could do more.
I go to therapy tommorow. The last time we touched on the idea of me filing for Social Security Disability. I applied about 1 1/2 years ago and was denied.I've since learned everyone is denied the first time. I should have appealed. I am not savvyon this type of stuff.
We will probably move to an apartment. There are advantages.
Friday I go back to MD to find out results from echocardiagram. There is a history in my family of a certain cardiomyopathy. I am a little anxious about that. I have 2 brothers and a nephew on transplant lists.
I am into a new book. It is called " What doesn't kill you makes you stronger " which has been my anthem for years.
It's a positive thinking self-help book with exercises that help you to adjust to life changing events.
It has been helping me in various areas. I would reccomend it.
Soon, I will pick up my latest Fern Michaels book that I haven't gotten to yet. Once in awhile I need to read a book like that to reenergize. You know, something to get lost in for awhile.
I think this is going to be it for today.
I had to drive to the other side of Dayton this morning and got lost coming home. I've lived here for about 6 months but my scope of venturing out is limited.
Hope everyone is well.
Remember Mary's Hope in your prayers.
