State of the Rhys

My ongoing medical fight had a new wrinkle added with the MRSA hospital stay but I am back home… and the day after I came home, I was laid off.

Which… not surprised. Only myself and one other person was laid off. Both of us ID as queer. I don’t know if they realized that or maybe they did? Either way, job hunting while fighting a health condition is gonna be awesome. And yeah, I don’t qualify for disability. Technically I can still work. And truthfully, I want to.

Still, life and lemons happen.

And oh, this looks good.

Nothing much else is happening. Dusting off the resume, building up all of the portfolio things I need to do, paperwork… so much paperwork… and of course, still doctors’ appointments. But on he happy side of life, writing is back on the menu so, I’m looking forward to getting something out.

I hope you all are doing well, and please stay safe!

    God… can’t anything ever go right for you healthwise??
    I’m sorry to hear that you’re having so much trouble with your health, it seems never ending and I’m surprised you seem less frustrated about it than you normally sound!
    And, to lose a job because of health problems? Isn’t there some kind of law about that or workers compensation that can help?

    Actually, I’m extremely surprised to learn you work at any kind of job at all, other than writing. I mean, you’re such a fantastic writer, I assumed you lived on royalties from your books.Seriously!

    In any case, I can’t wait for more stories in paperback from you… anything and everything I can get my hands on, so, yes, please continue to write as much as you can while dealing with all the other problems.

    Hope you feel better soon, and remember to be aware of the good things in your life that you can appreciate and be grateful for, because when things are going bad, it’s so easy to focus on them, and not see anything else. But, there are ALWAYS things you can be thankful for, if you allow yourself to see them.

    So sorry to hear this. Nothing like getting kicked when you are not at 100%. Sending positive thoughts to help you heal and get a new (and better) place to work.
