My goodness. I haven't updated my blog since the end of May! Time flies when you're having fun, so they say.
I've had my share of up's and down's since my last posting. I'm still struggling with the government over SSDI. It seems the medical portion of my claim is holding things up. I went to a supposed neurological exam this week. It turns out it was really with a rehabilitation specialist who didn't seem too familar with stroke patients. I knew more of the medical terminology than he did. He will pass the information on to the state. I'm not sure what his thoughts were so I have no idea if its a favorable recommendation or not. I have a psych eval this week. I already know I'm crazy, so this should be interesting. :big_grin:
I have started a new business doing voice over work for Radio, TV, Commercials and Narration. My background in radio played a big part in my decision to do so, along with the encouragement of some of my Internet Radio buddies. I have a website up and have registered with an online agency. I have a long way to go in really getting up and running, but I have to start somewhere. This will be a business of constantly promoting myself. The good thing is that I can work from home. If I'm having a bad health day, I can work at my own pace, unlike most professions where you go into work and have to be there regardless.
The Internet radio station I'm operating is still up and running. I've had a load of fun with this project. The station seems to be gaining listenership, mainly during office hours when workers can tune it in at the office. I just did a total remake of the station website and it is much brighter and inviting. At least that's what I think. I did have a bit of help from a friend on the layout and design and I give him credit for it on the site.
I get additional duties doing the blog recap this week and next sitting in for Asha while she is on vacation. Asha was one of the first to welcome me to the site when I first joined, and I have treasured her friendship since. I am glad to be able to cover for her and hope to do an adequate job in her absence.
All in all, I am truly blessed. I have a great support group from my church and friends who care for me and watch out for my well being. Though my life is far from perfect, my support group makes life so much easier for me. This place has been a blessing as well. I'm not sure what I would do without the support of all here on StrokeNet.
Keep looking up!
