It's been far too long since I have posted something, but truth be told not much had happened until just recently.
I have been pretty much a hermit for the last couple of months, just getting by and trying to get all this paper work done for the health funds and the Association. Its slow moving but it's getting there.
I did have a job working at a salon in Lindisfarne as a Massage therapist, even managed to get a few clients too. Things were going well until things happened. But that comes after so lets focus on the 'Ups' for now. The Ups
So I as I mentioned I got a job, at a salon called Houdini. Even got myself a few clients. And that is not the best part. My Diploma finally came through which means I am now officially a Remedial Massage Therapist. With this now under my belt I am eligible to join the Australian Association of Massage Therapists, and apply for Health Funds so my clients can get Health Rebates.
As I said, its slow but when it gets moving, it will be good for buisness.
My 20th of August I turned twenty one and on the 25th I had my party. On the day of my birthday I had breakfast with a good friend and then later in the afternoon I met up with some more friends who took me shopping. Some of these truly, amazing people include lightsided-angel
. When I got home that night, I had a lovely family dinner which was simply wonderful
The night of my party would have to be one of the best nights of my life so far. I got to dress up nice, get my hair done, hang out with friends both old and new, and I got to dance around like there was no tomorrow. All the stress leading up to it and the exhaustion after was worth it.
I have finally made it a month without having to go to the doctors for anything.
This in itself is something I am very happy with. Not only are doctors expensive, they always leave you with a referral or some prescription medicine that no doubt tastes gross.The Downs
I mentioned that i got a job; well a couple weeks ago I found out rather suddenly that the person I was working with, has sold her half of the salon and I will no longer be able to use the rooms there. This means I need to find somewhere else to work. There is someone I might be able to work with but until he gets back from his 'leave' I won't be able to find out.
Until then I am once again, unemployed, right when I get my diploma
My Nan is sick. She gets severely anemic because of the medication she is on. Actually it wasn't until yesterday that we found out what was wrong and now she will need to take iron injections for the rest of her life. Plus there is no guarantee that it would work.
Everyone else is worried, and that just makes me worry even more.
On top of that my Uncle Ian is dying. His cancer has spread to his lungs and the chemotherapy is not working as quickly as we are hoping. I really wish that I could have spent more time with him, but considering he lives across bass straight and halfway up the side of Australia, it's not that easy to go and visit him.
It's during times like these I feel really....useless. Useless and tired because I can't sleep very well.
I know its the stress and the worry but there is really nothing I can do about it. Tell you what though i am getting really sick of these nightmares when I do get to sleep.
Despite all this, I am hanging in there, which is more than I can say for the other members of my family.
But I will be okay. I will always be okay
