Since I've been terminated I spend the day applying for jobs, sleeping, and playing World of Warcraft,

Since I cannot drive I basically sit at home with the two cats and listen to the silence, or the TV and slowly go nuts.

When I worked, I worked from home and loved what I did... now after the second and third week, when I've applied to the most places that I can and I check the ads each week and apply to anything and everything I can, it gets depressing.

My caregiver, who I had been seeing 3 times a week is on vacation this week down in KY, so my normal human contact has been significantly curtailed.

That and I had my first seizure in over a year the other day.

I keep plugging away.... I know things, well, I hope things get better, but sometimes I just want to scream.... and lord knows I am not a screamer.

I had to cancel my third MD appointment (3 specialists so far) as even though work is paying my insurance during my time off, they've as of yet gotten the paperwork to me, so I cannot go the MD office unless I want to pay huge upfront costs and later get reimbursed (Which I do not have the huge up front costs to pay for).

Anyway, I know I've not been around here as much, nor on Facebook, and I've gotten several emails asking if I am OK, so I thought I'd post this as a response and to let people know I am alive and still sorta kicking.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
