Well, a lot has happened since my last post. I have started my new job, did orientation on Monday and started my training on Friday. I think I am going to like the job but I am worried about my memory. I need to be able to learn the doctors so I can recognize their faces, this will probably be one of the hardest parts of the job. The other hard part is reading their handwriting. Other than that I am picking up things pretty well. I started on 6/29 and my benefits became effective 7/1. I am really happy about that because for the last week or so I have been having this weird pain in my side/abdomen. Even though my benefits are eff 7/1 I don't have an insurance card and it will take some time for me to get into the system so I haven't been able to see a doctor yet. I am thinking I will contact my surgeon Monday, I actually tried to reach him Thursday but was not able to. I just remembered that I have another # for him and I will try it tomorrow. I think he will see me without the insurance and maybe I can get to the bottom of this pain. I hate to say it but being off for so long has made me not want to work, I have to get back in the mindset of actually working. I am supposed to work evenings but I am training in the daytime and that is really hard for me. I am definitely a night person. I will be working this Tues and Thurs after my nutrition class 1:30 - 7 and 12 hours on Wed, 7a-7p, that one is the one I am worried about. I mean, how do you go from not working to working 12 hours in 1 day. Oh, well, I will handle the best way I can. I am picking up the system pretty well and am excited about what is to come. I also went to orientation at my school for the nursing program and I got my schedule. I will be doing clinicals in the fall at the same hospital that I will be working at, I could not have asked for a more perfect schedule. It was so random too, I just happened to sit on the right side of the room in orientation, everyone on that side will be doing clinicals at that particular hospital. I will have a early class on Monday for the first 5 weeks, it starts at 7:45, that will be hard for me but it is only 5 weeks. Other than that, I have been trying to watch my diet, I could do better with this and I plan to. I barbecued today so I have some healthy grilled chicken for the next few days. I have not been working out much but I have been staying active. I will be cancelling my gym membership because I just can not afford it right now. I have included a picture of me from last weekend. I went to a mini reunion for my elementary school. I have not seen those people for 17 years and it was good to reconnect with them. I have since taken my braids out and along with them, some of my hair came out. To think, I was trying to give my hair a break and it seems like I did more harm than good. I am trying to work with the natural texture of my hair and I bought some kinky-curly to style it with. Today was the first time I used it and I liked it, it is a little stiff but I will mix it with some moisturizer tomorrow. I will add pics without the braids soon. I am still trying to work out this hair of mine, it is one of my biggest frustrations but I would not trade the weight loss to have the hair back. It will come back eventually. That's all for now.
