Today is a holiday in Canada. it goes by all sorts of different names depending where you live.
I am visiting with my husband at his cottage north of the city for this long weekend. He has been able to be up here for most of the summer b/c he was teaching an online course instead of classroom ones. I have been in the city b/c I landed a part-time job assisting at a clinic downtown. The job is a huge challenge - so much to do within short periods of time. It is so tightly timed, I think you could say it is 'choreographed'. I am looking forward to when it will be so much more familiar to me that I don't have to pause and think - what am I doing now? Hopefully it can become second nature.
I am so grateful the clinic owners even considered me for the job. & I am also grateful that a coworker showed me a process map she made of the job duties. It helped me learn in a way I find comfortable. The person who trained me doesn't learn that way so it was very difficult and I was so slow in understanding what the job was about. That process map was written in 'my language' so I could understand it. Thank goodness.
I am also very grateful for my T. I am able to have weekly appts with her. I need to develop more independence in my life. I was not doing very well at all this time last year and my T was extremely helpful and supportive. When things were really bad, she would try to fit me in for a 2nd appt if it was possible. She also referred me to some organizations where i got more specific help. I know I am blessed to have someone looking out for me like that.
Earlier in the year, one place I was referred to accepted me into a clinical trial for rTMS (repetitive transcranial magentic stimulation). It was a 6 wk program and it did help. I didn't get to remission but I did respond to the treatment. They left the door open for me to return should thinks go off the rails again. Hopefully that won't happen.
