Remember how I said I've been sick?

It got worse.

So I went to work yesterday at the appointed time and my boss immediately sent me to urgent care.  I had several breathing treatments and chest x rays - and I can give you a long list of what I DON'T have - but no one has any freaking idea what is going on.

I'm not allowed to work.  I've averaged 2 days a week for the last 3 months because I've been so sick - working for a nurse can be the pits when you need the hours.  I'm still not allowed to work for another week minimum - and the boss says I have to have a signed statement saying I can go back to full time.  

But I work just enough to cut my SNAP benefits in half.  Thanks GOP!

The bills are piling up again - storage locker, the boat fees - and mostly what I can do is lie here with my CPAP on to push air in my lungs and occasionally cough until I pass out. I could end up losing my job simply because I can't be there.  I'd freak out, but it takes too much air.

I do have a paypal - it's mortifyd at teh gmail.  I can give anyone who prefers the numbers to the marina or storage facility.

Thank you for thinking of me.

I'm going back to sleep now.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
