Busy few days

Yesterday we saw dr. barry. It was a good appointment. I got to talk about what was happening with mom and that was really helpful. Dr. Barry encouraged me to keep using my resources. She said between herself and Eileen, my mentor colette, and the weekend service I have a lot of people to link into for support. I agreed. She said I was becoming very adept at describing my feelings. I was actually shocked when she said that because I dont think I do a good job of describing things at all. We talked about respite and she encouraged me to call the respite place and see where my name is on their list. I think once I write this post I am going to call them.
You remember I said I was getting a job coach? Well I called the agency where the job coaches work yesterday to see where I am on their waiting list. It turns out I am next on the list to get a job coach. Once they exit the next person off their case load Ill be next in line. Im looking forward to working with a job coach. I am hopeful Ill get matched up with a job and start working part time soon. Its somethingIve always wanted.
I went to my nutritionist this morning. She weighed me and I have lost 1 KG or 2.2 pounds this week. I am thrilled. What I am doing is paying off. She told me to keep focused and keep doing what I am doing and I should keep seeing results.
My PA kristen did her hours this morning also. She took me to my appointment, we did grocery shopping, and she helped me clean the house. The hours just fly by when she is there. She also made me scrambled eggs and toast for breakfast.
I rang my public health nurse yesterday as well. i wanted to talk to her about putting in another application for more PA hours. She said shed put in the application for a few extra hours. To be honest I dont think she gets the magnitude of the amount of support I will need. I tried telling her that because my mom is sick now and unavailable or not as available as she was I would need a lot of extra support. She just told me to link in with karen dr. barrys social worker that shed be able to put me in touch with resources.
Right now Im at the basement club doing my volunteering. I am about to start typing Februarys newsletter.
Im having a pretty good day mood wise. I feel productive and it feels good.
