I emailed my former boss this morning and asked him if he would have a place for me for 25 hours a week. *gasp* *biting nails* I know that sounds really impulsive. It is and it isn't. I've been wanting to go back to work for a loooooooong time. But, I've been worried about my reliability and ability to keep a job. Well, I decided that I am sick and tired of being sick and tired. Mainly, I'm tired of this illness controlling my life. I'm taking my life back come hell or high water. I know I can't work full time. I don't have the stamina anymore. But, I am too young (and too bored and too broke) to be disabled. I figure if I can spend 25 hours a week on the computer at home, I can do it somewhere else and make some money. If I'm going to feel bad, I'm going to feel bad regardless of where I am. And at 25 hours a week, my former employer offers employer paid health insurance. With my cognitive issues, learning a new job would be really hard. And in this job market, I wouldn't be an ideal candidate by far. But, if I stick with what I know I should be ok. And there will be still be a re-learning curve. So, this is kinda my only shot at the moment. I'm really excited about this. My former boss really liked me. I started out part time with them and when I needed full time, they created a position for me with a substantial raise in pay, followed by a 10% raise the following year. I need the power of the board. PLEASE let him have something for me to do. Thank you!
