    So today was MUCH better, I just sucked it up and admitted I had been making mistakes. Then I had a plan for how to improve that we talked about and my sup agreed with. Then I got a nice long time to do admin work without being interrupted too much. I am actually caught up, and feel like I have the plan in place to keep it up. I have noticed over this years this come in cycles and I feel like I am going into a better cycle of being able to manage. I did bring work home, I think that is just going to be part of it.

    I think it is menopausal brain fog, added to my natural tendency to get into la-la land of artistic mode. I am not thinking about SSDI, I know what Teacher Terry is talking about. I am going to focus on my savings plan and my side hobby/business that I am being more financially focused on (I had a new hat idea that I have not seen anywhere before).

    Zoe, I am glad things went better and you have a difficult illness that many don’t understand. I am glad you are proactive in managing it.

    OMG insight, with this significant mistake. I wonder if I am remembering my medical leave and I just want to go back to that. There is a dreamy quality of not having to do anything but survive (yes it was super hard too!). Meanwhile I got an appointment with a counselor through the EAP program.

    Well, I again suggest you try to get on permanent disability for your mental illnesses.

    UL, I suggest you read what I wrote. Do you have the money to quit working and gamble that you may get SSDI and support yourself for 2 years??? You don’t qualify if working.

    If I prove you wrong, will I then nullify your credentials as a social worker?

    UL, I am telling you as part of my job utilizing my second master’s degree I would write reports if I thought someone couldn’t work at all and they were used in court. In addition 2 of my friends are Vocational experts that testify by phone at hearings all over the country and I have been asked if I would like to do this work. I am telling you how this really works. But what do I know after quitting SW I only worked in this field for the past 26 years.
