Just when I was finally getting rid of some of my anxiety, bam, its hitting me again. Not so much for my RCC dx but now my job.. Little history on the "3 bads in a row". Besides getting the dx of RCC at the end of March, I also lost everything to a flood in Sept of this year. I had to gut my whole downstairs and redo all of it. I NEVER want to go through that again. Got some help from FEMA but somethings I can never be replace. Then the Kidney cancer dx. I work weekends as a bartender but my primary job is in private hire home health. I care for an alzheimer patient 5 days a week (40 hours) While I was off recovering they hired a nurse and another caregiver to work in my absence, telling me right along my job was still there when I come back. Now I found out they have decided to keep all three of us and divide the 7 days between us. I will not be able to pay my bills on 2 days of work or even 3 for that matter. I am hoping I can get partial unemployment until I find another client, but that pit is back in my stomach again. I survived cancer (or at least I am hoping I have) so I need to try to just look at this as another bump in the road that I will get over too. My stress level is high sometimes I guess. I also have an austistic daughter whe lives in a group home but I get her 3 or 4 times a week and over night every sunday. (She just left)I love her to peices but she can tend to lead to more stress too. Typing to you all on here has helped me in so many ways.. Thanks for listening to me vent.
