Stay At Home Me!

We’re not going to LA for sure. I’m disappointed that’s for sure, but it’s just not the sensible thing to do. We really can’t afford it – it would stretch us way to thin. If we went and then something unforeseeable were to happen, like our furnace craps out or whatever, we would have nothing left to fall back on. What a stressful way to live right?? This cheque to cheque existence gets exhausting after a while. I can’t help but think how different it would be if I were working! The thing is, it’s such a risk. If I decided to try working and I couldn’t do it, my disability would be gone. And, let me tell you, getting approved for CPP disability was not a cakewalk!! It took forever and, although I don’t get much, I get a little bit and every little bit helps! Over the years of being sick I made myself look at things differently – because at first, when I couldn’t work I was devastated, all that work and years of education felt wasted – I realized that many people envied me, because I got to be home with my kids; while they were little and all through school, for many that was a privilege not a bad thing. I reframed it in my head (and without my education I wouldn’t have known about reframing) to see all of the good things that came out of my being at home. Also, we’ve kept my Psychologists registration current and it’s not like my education can go anywhere!! So here I am, an educated, stay at home mom, living cheque to cheque, lucky to get the time with my family. I’m truly blessed, even if I’m not wealthy!! Night all💤😴

To help with research and treatment for Trigeminal Neuralgia please go to (Trigeminal Neuralgia and Me) to sign a petition to have the World Health Organization (WHO) add Trigeminal Neuralgia (TN) to their “Health topic list.””Hopefully one day I’ll get it right, or at least have fun, while about it I write!!”
