That must be an awful feeling. I hope it passes soon.

I spoke too soon...the low mood has not passed, but it is not as bad as a few days ago, so that's the good news in this.

Had an amazing interview today for a job I really want. God help me that this bipolar mess stays in check while I pursue full-time employment to finally be on my own. Please, dear Lord, give me the break that I need. I need this so bad.

My father was finally fully admitted into an addictions rehab. I hope he is in their dual diagnosis section. My siblings and I know relatively little. I know where he is. It's nearby to where I live. I will coordinate with my brother to get him clothes.

On the other hand the Bipolar is still stable. I just have to deal with the PTSD which I think caused this issue due to serious stress. See my T today and hopefully he will he will help me deal with this and calm down.

Well I had a job interview this afternoon. I think it went well, but then again I always think interviews go well and I end up not getting the job. But I'll hold out hope. Part of me doesnt want to go back to work. I stress too easily, and when I do it leads to an episode. But I have to pay my bills, so I have to work.
I stopped by sister's on the way home. My two year old nephew is definitely jealous of my eight month old niece. He started copying everything she did to get my attention. It was very awkward.

Itís throwing Jello on a wall and seeing what sticks.


Oh damn Iím so sorry I hope that somehow something works out.

Jello and wall ??? Perfect explanation.

First one is kind if a nuisance to get to (double the commute, like an hour), but involves no public contact and has great hours (early start). The one later today is considerably closer, but has a bit more retail type hours (but only till 6) and involves sales (and design, which is not a problem). I always have epic fail at making a pro/con list as I can't really weigh the importance of things. Like... which is more important, commute time or dealing with customers? Ack, I don't know(!)



Anyhow, I'm blabbering, lol. Head a-swirl and waiting for the bus with nothing to do but think. And write.


Good for you !!! 2 interviews is the way to go , yep now becomes the problem , yes the bloody pro/con list.

Each offer you something you want and need. Is pay equal enough ? Factor in what your commuting costs are monthly.

Will either position come with any benefits ? Like sick days or vacation days ?

Itís always hard to make a decision.

I have no advice other than follow your gut, it will never steer you wrong.

Hope you get an offer on the job ! Is it a job you think would be a good fit for you ???

I bet it was awkward watching the kids.
