Great teaching for me this evening!
I’ve had a pretty great couple of days, and this lesson in remaining grateful for those good things which come your way really resonated for me tonight! Thank you Dorothy! Much appreciated!
I had the opportunity to meet with a representative of an assistive technologies group locally today, who will aid me in getting new design equipment to further my career now after my stroke...AND while meeting with him, I was blessed to run in to an old co-worker of mine, who likewise suffered a massive life-changing health issue several years back, leading him into a public sector job in state government services, some of which I’m finally going to receive here several years after my stroke and being laid off from my long-term job!
Likewise, I’m finally receiving a hearing to perhaps receive the state unemployment insurance which I have been denied for the last few years! Receiving that would take a lot of day-to-day stress off my shoulders!
Finally, I have, after a couple of years, received a hearing date with the Federal Social Security department to determine if I qualify for permanent disability status. I know of a couple of people who waited up to ten years for a final determination on Social Security disability...so my five or so years seems somewhat minor at this point!
Looking forward to beginning to attend the local community college in a few weeks, to help refresh my technical knowledge of the computers and software I use in my graphic design career, and build my portfolio back up
again! But then, anything to just get me up and out of the house will be great!
I’ll be attending college with my eldest child! Sounds like the plot for a bad ‘80s movie, huh?🤣😂🤣😂
