Re: A new start (kind of)

Hi forumites. I havent really had much to update on lately. But today there is a little more to update on.
Overall I have been balanced. My meds are okay. However because there is no groove in my medication I can't half the tablets as well so it's a bit of guesswork. I think it's effecting my dosage even if it is a slight change. So I am reducing it to one a day now. My p doc is aware of it and supports it l because he says I'm smart enough to do it.

I am also taking on a student while I search for full time work. The student is smarter than he thinks so this is helpful for both of us.

I got a call back from the interview i did three weeks back for the second stage. So that will be next week. I also have high hopes for the opportunity in Canberra with govt department I applied to. Applying for a range of things is the best approach and I think it's working so far.

I am seeing my psych next week and I'm also happy with how things are progressing. I was on sane chat yesterday and it helped as I was feeling pretty terrible about things but it helped a lot.

I hope you are well

It does sound like things are steadily moving in a good way, despite odd moments.  Teaching one to one is a great experience, especially when you can see potential in your students.

@Hamsolo01 good that you are doing well. Hope it gets better with job offer and more money.

Re: A new start (kind of)

It's seems like you are managing quite a few different things @Hamsolo01 , such as considering different options for work.  

I hope you are getting there in terms of being okay.
