Just wanted to say it was a much better day.  I should've updated earlier so this would show up on the right day but oh well...it's 1:20am and I haven't gone to bedn yet.  My appointment went super well....wasn't worried about that because I get along with my Psychiatrist so well.  We think it might be my allergy meds causing the headache and increased anxiety so I made an appointment with my medical doctor for Oct 29th.  That's the earliest I can get in.   The interview went awesome.  Really all I had to do was fill out some paper work and sign a few things and then they gave me a tour of the office and said that I can start as soon as I'm ready.  So either Friday or Tuesday next week I'll go in.  They have lots of different things I can work on and are desperate for volunteers.  It's funny because they already invited me to the volunteer Christmas party yet they haven't even checked my references or done the criminal records check.  LOL.  I'm not worried about either though.  The manager also said don't be afraid to say no if I don't feel comfortable with a certain task or am working on something else.  That's awesome because right now the phones terrify me and I'd rather stick to filing, photocopying, stuffing envelopes, office-y things...minus the phones until I am at least a little more familiar with the place.  It's at a local VON office, which stands for Victoria Order of Nurses or something along those lines.  Basically they have nurses who provide homecare after surgery or hospitalizations as well as palliative care, but also they have volunteers that provide meals for seniors, senior visitations, transportation for seniors to appointments, and many more things.   The more volunteers they have the more services they are able to provide and the more individuals they can help.  Their organization relies on volunteers.  So this is fantastic!  Lots of opportunity and I can start out in my comfort zone and expand my experience as I get more comfortable.   Added bonus...it's less then a 10 minute walk from my apartment!  Isn't God awesome!   The previous place I put in an application to volunteer because they "needed volunteers urgently" never got back to me...even AFTER I called to follow up.  That was the Salvation Army Thrift Store....so it didn't work..wasn't meant to be.  This other opportunity is a lot better for me anyway and closer.  I think if I was volunteering with Salvation Army I'd be too likely to spend too much money. Anyway...other then that the only other thing going on is that I bit my lip a few days ago and now it's majorly infected and sore.  Ack.  Tonight my throat is actually sore a bit so I think my body is trying to fight the infection.  Tomorrow I have to pick up more solution for my eyebrow piercing...it's still having issues healing though it hasn't rejected.  I'm actually getting a little annoyed with it and wondering if I should just take it out....though I don't really want to yet.  Also, need to take my computer for repairs so I may be without for 2-4 weeks.  I'll still have access to a computer...just not as often...my roommates computer is a little mini laptop and while it's good for just checking emails and writing a note it's pretty much a pain in the rear as it's so tiny.  I hit all the wrong keys and can't see half the screen.  Ah well.  Whatever.  Anyway....there's a good possibility my warranty won't cover the issues with my computer so I'm likely going to have to either fork over how ever much money or end up looking at new computers.  Ack.  Not cool.  Not when trying to get out of debt....not into it further.  Urgghhh.  Ah well.  Such is life.   Things are so much better then my previous post...with the exception of the headache and pressure.  Likely it's the allergy meds....darn Avamys.

So glad to hear that you might have an answer for the headache thing, I hate allergies! I don\'t suffer badly from them but know people who do and it sucks! Thtas awesome about the volunteer position! Congrats, isn\'t God just totally cool! I hate computers at least when they don\'t work. I hope to be getting mine back soon, I miss it so much, I too am using my roommates and I feel like I\'m invading in her space to use it. Wish I had my own. Well, I love ya friend! Take care, much love and HUGS!
