Its really been an awful year for me overall. Not that I’m being negative , its just starting in January with my root canal disasters. Then, that ending up as 2 tooth extractions. Then my cancer restaging complete with X-rays, bone marrow biopsy , bence jones urine testing, on an on. Becoming refractory to Revlimid, starting Pomalyst…. Then month after month waiting for my numbers to change. No change:( I’ve managed thru it and now i’m on the weekly VElcade. A lot of issues this year.
Then probably the worst , losing my best little job in the world, due to someone else’s stupidity. That has been the hardest, as I couldn’t understand how this happened in the way it did. I’m still not ‘over ‘ it really. I’ve just accepted it now. But I wanted to keep working. I needed to do that and it was taken from me. All in all, out of my hands but still a life changing moment. I’ve thought of trying for another job, but I’m so limited. I can’t really work retail,
can’t really work too many hours, lift, etc. So, I think that this has been depressing for me to accept , that that’s it. If something came my way ,I’d certainly consider it but thats unlikely.
one reason I wanted to keep working was to increase y very meager SS. I never worked full time to collect a lot an this little job was helping to give me a little more. Now its stopped and won’t ever get more than the under $300 its set at. That too is difficult. How will retirement shape up..We still have a mortgage, etc, etc. So, the year had a lot of difficult things.
But theres also the good. My children are healthy as is y husband. He has a good job that gives us health insurance. He sold some of his company stock and we were able to re roof our house and take down the 2 giant trees. of course, with taxes we will be hit on that stock sale.. but it was worth getting somethings done.
I’m very grateful for many things this year,even if it was a difficult one. My cancer although active, isn’t creating a burden yet ,overall. the drugs have kept it at bay, and hopefully, the Velcade will drop my numbers in to the normal range.
So here’s to 2016 being an amazing and extraordinary year of wonder, good health, love, peace and prosperity!!
