I really couldn't think of a title for this post and there are numerous things to blog about. So randomness it is!
Job is going well. My brain was a little overloaded with all the information given me my first week. It's a lot to take in. I'm not overwhelmed to the point where I don't think I can do this job. Which is a good thing. I definitely think that my ten years of Medicaid experience helps me. In my job, I'm pre-registering patients for rehab appointments and then following through by verifying their coverage and benefits with their insurance. It's definitely going to be a job that will keep me busy! My first week seem to have flown by. The lady training me is very knowledgeable and patient. I'm thankful to have her as a trainer.
On the negative side, I don't know how, but I managed to catch a summer cold on Thursday. Friday seems to have pretty much a blur due to the wealth of information and my head being as clouded as it was. But like I always do, I managed to suck it up and concentrate on my job. I was thankful for the three day weekend to recover. I'm still struggling as of today, hoping tomorrow is better. I signed up for insurance last week and that means that as of 9/1, I'm fully insured by health insurance again. Hooray!
I am hoping to move out in a few months. I really don't know if I can afford living on my own, but I think if I find an apartment with all utilities paid, I could do it. It's beneficial to stay where I am, but in some ways I feel like I am burden on the finances. They say the water bill is high, I hear that I am a burden. They say the electricity bill is high, I hear that I am a burden. They say their food stamps were decreased, I hear there's still another mouth to feed. Yes, I know that's probably not the case, but that's what I struggle with on the depression side. I do try to conserve stuff, however adding a third person to an already stretched tight budget throws a wrench into everything. I would like to live closer to my job. As it stands, working in Muncie 5 days a week is 300 miles of driving for the entire week. It's a lot. That right there could save me some money.
We shall see how the paychecks go. I'm praying it works out.
