But what should I do?
You all have seen me complain and whine about how much I miss working on here numerous times. I would LOVE to go back to work! I know I couldn't do it for years but maybe 12-24 months? Just enough to get some money saved up to keep us from drowning when I get transplanted.
I spoke with a friend who went from SSDI to working while on Medicare and I wouldn't lose my Medicare, just my SSDI which I could obviously live without if I was working again. And I would be able to get back on it fairly easy since I wouldn't be taking more than 36 months off from payments.
But what do I do about life? And school? And volunteering? And Major (our dog)? And my health?
I remember that when I worked I had no life. I couldn't see friends on weekends because I was so tired from working all week. But I don't have many friends up here anyway and we stay home a lot on the weekends as it is.
School I could put on hold if I wanted to. Or just take one class at a time. I think I could handle it. I have 6 years to complete the masters program and I know I won't be working for 5 years so I could complete it after stopping work again. Am I OK with that? I think so.
Volunteering would obviously have to come to an end. I could deal with that. I could always start up again when I stopped working again.
Major we could put in doggy day camp. It wouldn't be too bad and he loves it there anyway.
Health....hmmmmm....that is a tough one. I would still need to get IVs every few months just like now, but it would be more difficult to do when I am working 40+ hours a week. I was getting sick all the time when I worked and was down to 4 days a week. I doubt a new company is going to hire me for only 4 days a week. Even if I did put the full 40 hours in.
There is just so much to think about. Should I send in my resume and just see if I even get a call back? But if I do get a phone call, do I tell them I am unsure of what I want to do? So so so so so much to think about!
