The New Normal?

I am sick, again. (sinus stuff, minor sore throat, overall aches and pains, low-grade fever)
I managed almost a week of feeling fairly good, getting 9 reviews done and working on some new patterns, then I got sick again.
Looking back, I have only managed to complete one pattern since November of last year. I guess the decision to seek SSD was a solid one. I certainly am not earning enough to pull my weight.
I filled out another form for SSD earlier this week. Going through the details of how I got here was harsh, and triggered a PTSD episode which is still being felt (in a much less acute way) today.
If they say no, they say no but at least I tried, this time with the help of a lawyer.
I am mostly knitting for charity this week. I find it soothing to keep busy, and feel useful that way.
Tonight Oscar is at a pink slip party put on by Speaking of Oscar and Detroitnet, they posted a review Oscar wrote earlier this week HERE. He is SO good at what he does!
He has also passed his second certification exam with an even higher score than the first one, and is already studying hard for the next step. I am so proud of him!
Anyway, if this level of health is my new 'normal' it is still a lot better than it could be.

Go Oscar! Congratulations!

And goodness, I wish I could wave a magic wand and make you all better.

"Normal" just keeps shifting, doesn't it? I hope you're feeling better soon. Please take care of yourself during this crazy-cool September weather. Hugs.

Good grief, Diana, I pray you will be better sooner!

And Congrats! to Eric!
