Mother-in-law in hospital.
Husband has fallen and sprained his ankle.
Horrible burning smell from cars clutch.

Please do wish him all the best from me. The clutch may of course be due to all those lovely hills around Whitby, and presumably the trip back across the Pennines is pretty steep too...

Yours,
Miranda.

First day back at work after a week, and I had to call out for to a panic attack. A massive one. Brought on by the most stupid reason.

I lost a 20 year old work jacket. I flipped sh*t over losing a jacket.

I mean, it was my dad's, and now it's mine, and it was basically just a trigger for all the stress that's been building up and not sleeping since since of that stress involves serious bullsh*t that prevents my sleeping.

So yeah. On the bright, my boss is cool.

Failed a physical for a job due to blood works abnormalities. Brought on by poor diet. The reason for which is that I am broke. And I am broke because I am unable to work.

And to add to the plethora of medical problems I've already had, I can now add epilepsy to the list.

I'm trying to cipher out what job would need a blood test? I mean, I've done some pretty crazy stuff in my day, but never had blood work for a job... Can you appeal the decision on the grounds of it's not normally like that?

Epilepsy sucks but is manageable. You got this.

Don't forget: Believe in yourself. Not in the you who believes in me. Not the me who believes in you. Believe in the you who believes in yourself.

You got this.

Basic blood work is standard in any physical for employment here.

Never heard of it being applied here - they'd probably get told to stuff their test somewhere anatomically painful! Some employers do blood and alcohol testing, but that's only if you are actually working. D&A testing is carried out randomly in Defence for example. Probably looking for any nasty blood-born infections that the blood owner might not be aware of, and, of course, for the other nasty ones like AIDS and Hep C.

Annnnnnnnnd back from doing my rounds around a bunch of doctors all over the city:

- My GP had me retake the blood work
- I had my prescription refilled (a giant f-word-ing bag of pills)
- Went to the neurology clinic to schedule my EEG appointment (waiting time: approx. 2 months)
- Went to another neurology department to schedule my MR appointment (waiting time: approx. 1-2 months)

And here's the real kicker: Went to the administration office for EU-OSHA to formally object to their assessment of my not being capable to work. Guess what. It'd cost me 800 eur. Which I don't have.

So on the way back home I stopped by at the bank to get a printout of all my income/expenses for the past three months and tomorrow I'm applying for social support on the grounds that I have ZERO money, ZERO income, and am a mental health patient and as such not easily employable. If they don't like it, they can shove it.

About the closest I can give as legal advice is:
 A shovel, plastic sheeting, and lots of bleach afterwards...

Good luck, Mr Xenos.

Oh it'll likely be fine, my family is with me and all that, it's just my county is utter sh*te, and there are some serious rights violations going on.

I'll get it sorted eventually.
