I am going to email the lady in Canada again. to get statistics. She has
a new email addy so I am not sure if she got the first one I sent her or
I will try and get my story to you in the next week. Eventually I will
send the picture and also post it on the mtm group also.
I think getting a job with more security for the future is a great idea.
With the way the mtm affects everyone differently looking at the big
picture is the best way to go. I never dreamed I would have to go out
on disability in 95 . I ended up having a congenital break in my back.
It was the reason I went out but eventually I would have had to with the
md also. I was a purchasing agent for a healthcare company, Baxter at
the time. They would not accomodate the building for me to get about
easily in my wheelchair so my doc put me out on disability.
I used to be on flex time and really was glad our company offered it.
Made it much easier to schedule appointments right when I got off work.
How did you like the class on the Human Gnome? I took a course on
writing childrens books. I have had a couple of my articles published
but have not taken the time to write on a regular basis yet.
Like you said the web site takes up a lot of time. I worked on different
programs at work on the computer. Before I went out on disability I was
going to college to get my degree in computer science. I did not pursue
it after I went out on disability since getting the degree was mainly
to advance at work.
Thanks for the heads up on Beggs Lab research. I do not have a sample
from when I had my biopsy. The place that read my biopsy said it was
inconclusive since I was a woman and they tossed the rest of it out even
though they were supposed to save it. (GRR) I will check with them
before I decide whether to get in on the research or not.
Do you feel the stander is helping you at all? I went to pt a few years
back for my back but the difference was not that great so I stopped
take care pat
