and so it goes…

Well dear Blog family, it appears that my time behind the front desk has come to an end permanently.

Tests are still being run to determine why I am still having seizures and migraines but they have given me some answers that will cause me to end my front desk career.

I have been diagnosed with a form of dementia. This form of the disease makes it almost impossible for me to multitask and be able to a procedural job like a hotel clerk. Basically, I can’t talk and type at the same time. It has basically taken me 10 minutes just to type this part of the blog.  You should see me try to make coffee and a bagel all at once in the morning. It also impacts my short term memory so I can’t remember things from one day to the next or even a few minutes some times. or a few minutes some times… just kidding… not really.

So where do we and I go from here? Well that depends on where the rest of the tests go in the next several months. I still need to figure these seizures and migraines out. They are less frequent than they have been. I have applied for disability but that is a very tedious situation at best. I had a couple things smoldering before all this happened so while I may not be able to be behind a desk checking you in and telling funny and strange stories here that doesn’t mean you won’t still be able to see those stories as long as I am able to physically able to provide those stories in one form or the other. So, I will no longer be posting on this blog but my twitter account will stay open posting health updates and hopefully down the road (a short road) some good news for once.

Thanks for all the well wishes and the contributions.

Just when you think you have it all

Hello blog family. I wish I was typing this with happy news.

The day after my last blog I took ill. I had a condition a few years ago that I thought I had beat. Apparently I was wrong. I was in the hospital over the weekend and now I wait for a specialist appointment and a series of tests and drugs. I am stressed and scared. Not only for the future of my health which I am hoping will be under control in a few months at most because I will be either under the right medicine or at least getting disability, but for my family. You see, with my job, I have no sick time.

When I started this blog I wanted this to be done solely for enjoyment. There was never a point or a thought were there was going to be a monetary reward. It pains me to even think of it until a friend of mine and fellow hotel worker has talked to be about crowed funding to help me out during this time.

So here it is. He has set up a paypal account for me to help with my expenses while I am off work. If you want to contribute I am eternally grateful. If you don’t want to, I completely understand. I don’t want to do this. I don’t want him to do this but I also don’t want to have to sell my car or be evicted from my residence.

Here is the link to the PayPal he has set up https://paypal.me/pools/c/80QPxa99N0

 

Love you all. I will be in touch.
