Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
Feeling guilty about being down
I find myself being so very down about my "new normal", and coping with / accepting how I cannot do certain things I once did just a year ago (or even had the option of doing a year ago).
From here I often start feeling GUILTY and RIDICULOUS because "how could I be so down about my situation"? I have daily neck pain (some worse than others).... however I have managed to hang on to my job, I have a good family, and have luckily been able to afford trying every treatment under the moon that has been an option thus far. I should be looking at my bright future I can still do many things.
Has anyone else gone through this? How did you get past these feelings? My husband always tells me to "be positive, think positive" but I always wind up right back here. It's a struggle and I know many of you can relate to my feelings here of isolation, anguish, basically morning the loss of what you once were, and even perhaps feeling emotionally distraught over being distraught.
