What Is A Survivor Girl To Do?

What Is A Survivor Girl To Do?

I have been unemployed for some time now and my child support ended a year go SO I have found myself  in a very challenging situation. What to do?!?!?!? This is one of the few times I wish I had a husband. LOL

The bank must have just loved my house as they kept telling me how much they wanted it back. They kept  losing a page here and a page there when I would send all the documentation for a modification. It never got accomplished. We went back and forth for 14 months as I did try to plan ahead. The house in now sold.

So, I had think quick.......what does a survivor girl do? She starts packin'!!!

I had 3 garage sales, got help emptying the attic, and started selling furniture.I found an apartment in a great community. I move the middle of July and now so ready to leave the responsibilities of a house behind me.God works in mysterious ways as six months ago I felt like my life would be over if I the house sold and I had to move. I have to say now, I am so ready and excited to move into my 55 plus gated community. I know I will feel safe and one of my best friends lives there also.

I met a sweet lady with brain cancer when I was getting approved for my new apartment.....I believe God is leading me into my new chapter and, hopefully, I can offer some hope and inspiration through acts of kindness to some of the people living around me.

I am excited and feel so good about moving now. I still have a lot to do in the next 3 weeks but at the end I will feel peace and harmony in my new apartment.

God Bless you and thanks for supporting my blog. Please comment if you would like to share anything.

I thought "the neck bone was connected to the cervical spine bone".

Another doctor experience:

First, I am told the doctor is very hard of hearing with 2 hearing aides and that I will need to look at him when I speak. This is an elderly man so I do applaud him for still working. :)

The doctor office is located in, shall I say, an older part of town. It was a board certified internal medicine doctor.

He asks me how many surgeries I've had. I am the surgery queen so I started at the top.( NO, not brain surgery but, after all, the CT and MRI's I had that may be next. lol)

ME: I have had 5 eye surgeries
DR: Why did you have 3 eye surgeries?
ME: I had 5 eye surgeries
DR: yes, that is what I meant to say

I told him I had neck surgery for pinched nerves in 2005 and a mile long list of my complaints; one being lymphedema.

ME: I, also, have some problems with lymphedema
DR: Well, yes, that is very common with neck surgery.
ME: Excuse me, the lymphedema is from the breast surgery
DR: yes, that is what I meant to say

So my chief complaint is that I have lost some use of my right arm and hand due to more pinched nerves in my neck, breast surgery and lymphedema. So I have an xray ordered for lower spine. Maybe I need to retake an anatomy class because I thought "the neck bone was connected to the cervical spine bone".
