Today is my birthday and recently over the last week, I have been doing some reflecting. I don't know if you do but I like to as even though I am disabled due to fibromyalgia, bipolar, I have a lot of degeneration between my neck and lower back. I am trying to stay positive about the recent health issues that I was not expecting that started over 8 years ago now. I really miss the workforce but at the same time wearing a mask is not my idea of fun all day long so the Lord above had other plans for me. I had worked in the medical field for over 10 years before I was no longer able to between Gosnold Counseling in Centerville, MA where I learned a lot about mental health not knowing I would be a mental health sufferer today.
Stedman Clinic Vail, CO taught me about knees, shoulders, hands, wrists, elbows. It is one of the best orthopedic clinics in the country.
Mountain View Surgical Associates Parker, CO i learned how to be an acting medical assistant, scheduled surgeries, got authorization for surgeries. I learned about colonoscopies, hernia repair, and more.
The place I worked at and opened my eyes to addiction was Mercy Recovery Center in Westbrook, ME but it has been closed since 2015 it was heartbreaking and hard to understand at first how people become addicted to opiates and alcohol and can't stop. That was where I saw my first man take his clothes off and masturbate in the waiting area which traumatized me I will be honest.
In 2018 I started dating a younger man and I have since realized maybe he truly did not love me and just using me for what he can get. I hope I am wrong but that was my feeling,
But today is my day and my birthday is the start of the rest of my life and what I want it to be. I have so many things still to accomplish. I am blessed to be able to travel and live in many states in my 20's and 30's. I love seeing new places and photography is becoming my passion now. in 2021 I have started realizing things that need to be healthy in my life and that is a man that loves and will always choose me over any other woman, spoil me, show me he loves me.
