    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going?

    Well, I decided its time to make major changes in my life that will relieve the stress. But it will be stressful for the time being until its all settled in.

    I have realized that this location where I live is not healthy. Too inconvenient with ride system here as well as the MH services that are clueless on how to work with me with the kind of disability I have.

    I told dad I am not happy living here and its time for me to make a change. He's not happy with my decision on the move. Say I can't afford it but I can if I get a job to help offset the cost of moving. I plan on building up my savings acct to help with the change. Sadly its a shame he doesn't understand how much stress it is waiting on a ride or my other drivers are available to take me. He said fine do that then.

    I am STILL waiting on my stupid glasses and hope it is in soon so I can relieve the stress off the right eye. I get tired by the end of the day and I get cranky. Hopefully relocating will be much better for me.

    I have started early stages of transition by making calls finding housing which i already have a list but need to find out where the best place to live. That is one priority that I have a safe place to live in and a job on hand. It mustt be a part time job because pdoc won't let me have full time job yet until I am stable. I guess thats what my plans are. I will be going up north in Oct for meetings.

    Oct is going be the busiest month for me. Lots that needs to be done. I am not looking forward to it but I have to.

    Cookster,

    I plan to because this beyond silliness. I still not gotten phone calls back from people either. Seems that they have an attitude problem. Not sure what their problem is either.

    Hello beej,
    It sounds to me like you need to do something for yourself and reaffirm that you need the consideration you deserve so much. I suggest you try a phonecall to your optometrist and see if there is any way you can help them speed the delivery of your glasses.
    Put your desire to move on the top of your organization list and start searching the pros and cons of making that move a reality. Stay in touch here and let us know how things are working for you. My best wishes,

    There are times you don't mean to say what you mean to say you mean.
