I dunno
nanowrimo 2010

This has been a rough week in many ways. I've been home since Monday. I've done a lot of paperwork, I've made some phone calls. I talked to a neurologist, a lawyer, and today a psychologist.

I've been home before for extended periods. I've always been working, though, toward going back to work as soon as possible. Even when I first lost my vision I spent all my time going to the doctor and learning how to cope with my vision. This is the first time I've ever been home without a plan for getting back into the workforce. I'm really at a major loss as to what I should be doing.

I guess my mission for the foreseeable future is to get my disability.

I feel like I've given up.

I don't want to do nothing, but I absolutely don't want to go back to work. It has been almost of a year of futility and frustration. I am making myself miserable by trying to do what I've always done. I don't know how to deal with the whole thing, but I am going to go somewhere with it.

I admire your strength to get through what youve gone through. I couldnt imagine hacing to have all that stuff happen to me. I'll keep you in my prayers.

Can you put your energy into something else that doesn't require going to work? Learning languages, studying things you've always wanted to study, creative pursuits, anything like that?

I certainly will do some of those things. I am thinking of taking some classes I've been meaning to get into, art, cooking, ballistics.

Heheh, ballistics? Explain further

I'm a minor astronomy buff. One of the things you learn is ballistics. Of course most ballistics courses aren't about cometary orbits...
