2015 was soooo hard! It was one of the most difficult years of my life.
In February, I move back to my hometown of Atlanta to be with my fiancé. While I wasn't gone long, adjusting to a different culture (again) was hard. People up North are more aggressive and people in the South tend to be more passive aggressive. Thankfully, I got a wonderful job right away.
Going from living 800 miles apart to being in each other's faces all the time took some getting used to. I think preparing for the wedding and the lifelong vows added some stress. The wedding was great and I'm so grateful I'm now married to my best friend.
Soon after the wedding, I got mono. I was out of work for 6 weeks. I kept trying to go back and had to leave early. The doctors kept telling me it was just mono and to rest. I wasn't getting paid during all of this resting and my husband was in school. Times were tough.
After the 6 weeks, I was able to work for a week or two, then I'd get too sick and tired and have to take time off. In August, 3 months in, I left a job I LOVED because you can't be sick from work constantly. It was all so sad and scary.
In September, Hubs was offered a job in Winston-Salem, North Carolina. For the second time in a year, I packed my stuff (and Chico) and moved to a different state. This time, the move was better. I have Hubs with me and unlike New York, people are super friendly.
Here we are in January and I'm still sick, I wonder what the future holds. No one ever talks about getting too sick to work. My plan was to finish school, get a job and live happily ever after. Now the future is uncertain. I can't afford insurance because I'm not working (yes, I tried Obamacare and it's too expensive) but I need to see specialists. I tried to make an appointment with a few and they have refused to see me. Everything is up in the air.
