Happy ******* new year

Lemmie see if I can give a basic rundown of events for the past 30 days for me.

First my sister lost her job at the Radio station. They laid off her and more than a few other people who were making money. Best bets are on a sale of the station, bases on emails sent in and around that time.

'But Wait! There's more!' I did not have a happy new years. I got sick. Bronchitis, and a rather bad case of it at that. In fact, I still have it. Went to the doctors, and got an antibiotic, antihistamine (Benadryll only stronger), and an Inhaler... like you'd see on someone with Asthma. Thats how bad I feel at the moment. Sleep is not easy for me at all, with my coughing keeping me up half the night.

Then my mother has to be sick as well. But I will make light of it considering she's in an electric wheelchair (since I was 15)... She's got more important things to think about.

All of which leads to my most happiest thought: My father. He's in the hospital. Cellutitis, def: Infection of the soft tissues. 2 places on my fathers foot have gone from fire red to purple. He had to admitted to the hospital yesterday. He, right now, is so close.... no, I dare not think that. NO.

*wipes tears from eyes* He has trouble breathing, coughs a lot. Sleep, even in the hospital right now, is hard for him. I haven't had a chance to visit yet, but I will soon. Hopefully he will be out in 4-5 days. But even then, he might not be back to work for a month!!! Given the above (Sister out of work, mom gets a small check from SS), I will be the only one with a substantial income for a while.... unless my sister finds a job.

Monday morning, at 3am, I finally got back from taking my mother to the hospital as well. For pneumonia. I had to take her at midnight and stayed until she was in her room. Called in the next day.

Welcome to my fucked up world.

<<appending again>>>
Its amazing when kind people show up in your life.

for setup, lemmie tell you about my work hierarchy, just so you understand
> = next level up
 Me and Dustin > Mary Jo > Kim
 Kim is the person who got my resume, hired me,  and rules over my division HR wise

Kim came to me this morning to see how things were going. Before leaving, she mentioned that if I needed/wanted to leave early that I did not need to put it on my timecard and it would be between her and I. And if my boss doesn't come in tomorrow again (sick), It will be since I'll hand my timecard to her.. I have no time off left at the moment, so this is a godsend of an idea.
A few hours later my 2nd, Dustin, called. He said today for college was just orientation (and since he's a junior, this is a 'yeah, again?'), and he had already done all his errands for the day. He offered to come in, if I wanted, since he knew about mom and dad.Guess how long I thought about these 2 facts before I got set up to get out of there ^_^.

I am probably a lot happier and calmer tonight than I have been in the past few nights. Really.

Thank you all for the post. I know their worth, which is much.

First off... *HUGE HUGS*

Second, I'm slightly annoyed that I had to join this thing to comment on your journal. Damn this thing for not having anonymous posting options.

Third, Things always work out. Eventually.

*hugs again* Just hang in there, kindred dearheart!

You have my sympathies as well, friend.  I'll be praying for you.
