  • It's me again!

    Thanks for the sweet words of encouragement and prayers over the last couple of weeks regarding my boss having to lay me off since he hadn't been handling his finances or working his agency like he should have. Like I said before, I really knew that the job was not a good fit for me, even though he was fun to work with (that was the main problem though since he kind of made the days that he was in the office either drama filled or like a party atmosphere).

    I have applied for a couple of jobs. One being back at a company I worked at for 13 years. I had left there in 1999 to pursue a better opportunity. While I did a great job for most of my time, that is when my IC started into it's severe stages and my doctor as well as my family felt it best that I quit for awhile and take care of myself. I was off work for several months, but really couldn't handle being a stay at home mom. My kids were in their late teens, so they really didn't need me like when they were little and I wanted to be home. Anyway, I have worked a few jobs that didn't really fit my job description, I just took them in order to make some money and make myself feel useful. A former co-worker of my husband, my hubby works at the same company, called me and let me know of an opening in her area. I sent in my cover letter and resume' today. I am so nervous that I won't be able to be that go getter employee anymore. I do better in a job setting that is NOT sales oriented and has structure, which this job opportunity has. I have worked in insurance most of my career (claims handling and working the insurance policy renewals for a large bank). This job is for a Manager Administrator, so while I think I meet the job requirements, I keep falling back to the fact that I lost my confidence after I was sick and somewhat disabled when all I wanted to do as stay in bed when I was in so much pain.

    Please pray for me that I will wait for God's plan.

    Thanks so much!

        *Diagnosed with severe IC in 2004
        *Also diagnosed with PFD, fibromyalgia, chronic myofascial pain, IBS, migraines, allergies/asthma, dermatographism
        *Kept trying a million different treatments for all these things until I found what works, and I am doing okay these days with the help of a cocktail of medications and the InterStim, which was first placed in 2007. [I have had 2 revisions - one in 2010 when my battery died and had to be replaced, and one complete replacement (lead and generator) in 2012 after a fall on my stairs caused my lead to move.]
        *Current meds include Atarax (50mg at night), Lyrica (150mg twice a day), Xanax (0.5mg at night and as needed), Zanaflex (4mg at night), hydrocodone (10/325, every 6 hours as needed), Advair, Nasonex, Singulair (10mg at night), oral contraceptives, home instills containing Elmiron and Marcaine (as often as I need to do them).
