Back in the Saddle Again

I haven’t been blogging for quite a while. There’s no real reason for it, only excuses.

I love being a geekess, a technician, and engineer.  Science is my beautiful, ever-changing universe.

But as the years go by it gets more and more difficult to maintain my concentration for an entire 8-hour day. My job performance is so inconsistent that I can’t be counted on to complete a task on schedule. On my last job my boss wanted to lower my already obscenely low pay even lower.

So I applied for SSDI.  They turned me down, of course, which means I have 12 – 16 months to wait for the appeal.  Binder and Binder is representing me and that’s a real plus.  On the minus side my psychiatrist of 21 years, the keystone in my SSDI claim, passed away suddenly in December. I will have to find another and be evaluated before the appeal comes up. He was in his early 60s, in great health, a really happy guy. It was quite a shock.

RIP, Lynn Cobb Montgomery. He was not only an excellent, caring physician, but he was a bright light in the community, loved and respected by many. He will be greatly missed.

<rant>In the meantime I have no income.  My cat earns more than I do.  I have reduced some of my expenses by downgrading cell phone, health insurance, auto insurance, and even my web host.  I am working on getting cash assistance, food stamps, and medical assistance to help pay for insurance.  I can’t be without health insurance.  I can’t be without psych or asthma meds.</rant>

Enough whining for today.  There is much work to do.
