Lady light...i was just thinking about you and your situation, wondering if you were able to get your situation resolved somewhat...I have had you in my prayers, i have faced spousal abuse and it is so hard to get past and move on from...I wish you all the best, if you can work out a deal with your employer where you either go part time or PRN (as needed/on call) that would help as far as keeping your connections...you can still apply for SSI etc, they will just have you send in your paycheck stubs each month and your SSI amount would vary according to the amount of pay you got each month....hugs and prayers continuing for you, its a tough road, but you have friends who are here for you...

Put yourself first... also can you talk to your boss and ask if he might be able to be more flexible with your work obligations? Maybe he'd give you some weeks w/o pay instead of your having to quit? Just a thought...

I agree that you really need to take care of yourself first. If you don't you won't be able to take care of your kids.
You have my prayers!

You need to take care of that mass first and quickly. I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer but could not feel it, and choice to follow the "Budwig Plan" which is about natural healing. I also think that if you quite your job it make be more, have you looked at going maybe part time, and your health would clearly be a valid reason. As far as your Son, check with Autism Society in your area and see if they know of where you can get some help.

I have a decision to make and I am finding it hard. I work. I have been missing a whole lot of work with appointments and such. In Feb. I left my husband and took the kids to a shelter and have now restarted my life. I was on FMLA for a while but that has ran out. I have these appt. Trying to get my son back on SSI and Paying for a babysitter takes more then I can afford. My housing and utility's are paid for. My car is paid for. I would get Food Stamps and Be placed on cash assistance. But I would be able to get my ducks in a row. I would not run the risk of being fired due to attendance. We still have not gotten cloths in the dressers yet as I am so tired when I get home that It is all I can do to make dinner and baths. I am taking off for Maggie and Cannon and myself they found a mass under my arm and I have more appts for that coming up. I try to make them as early or late as possible but still.

So if you had my decision to make would you quit when so many people are finding it hard to find a job? Who knows when I will get it all taken care of and will need to return to find work? I have gone thru babysitter after babysitter due to Cannons behaviors due to his PDD-NOS.

Help!
