It's a Long Haul

Hey Friends. How are you today? I hope you are well.

Today I thought about how much it #sucks when you are trying to get a #Job . My friend contacted me earlier today and was in tears because she is struggling to find work. Why is this so #difficult ??!!

I know how #Challenging it is to just find a job, but to keep one is also another challenge. Do you have a #MentalIllness ? I do. #BipolarDisorder is not fun. There are days where I have more #Energy than I would need, and then there are days where my mind is so #foggy that I cannot #think straight. It's #awful but I do what it is that I have to do to try and get by.

Whatever your struggle is... whether it is #Trying to find a #Job or if you are trying to keep your job... I'm here for you.

Feeling Awful

Have you ever felt just plain #awful when it comes to #Work ? Well - I do. I just got a new job at Victoria's Secret after my long 4 year journey with Universal Studios. I am beyond frustrated by the fact that I have been #sick since April 13th!

I do not know how to explain that to anybody other than just tell them, yes this is real, and Yes this is why I had lost my previous job. I just had to email the human resources department about my new job to ask them how do I go about telling them I have Bipolar Disorder and it regularly affects my attendance?! How do I get a job to stop penalizing me for something that is only treatable through medicine and therapy but is not a cure?

I can practice all the things that I have learned over the years, but the struggle to maintain strong stability does not exist. On top of it all? I lost my Father on May 7th, then my Job on May 14th, and I have been sick since the 13th. I finally just got a new job... but I do not know how to go about telling them what it is that I need at all.

Do you have any #Advice for me?

Please #help me.
