Stuff and (some) nonsense
Wednesday, August 24, 2016      14 comments

As much as the last year has generally sucked, it occurs to me that I'm probably better off without my old landlord (overbearing and overpriced). And I'm definitely better off without my old employer (no comment). I found out that while I'm... Read more
Still here

I'm still in the rehab center, pretty much stuck in bed. The TV here hasn't gotten Food Network for a week and a half. And I've had a beastly cold for over a week. Mostly I occupy myself with this borrowed iPad and my knitting. I've nearly finis... Read more

Yesterday they used a lift to put me into a wheelchair so I was able to leave my room for only the second time in almost three months. Unfortunately, I had "stomach issues" this morning and didn't want to risk any problems in public. I re e... Read more

There seems to be some movement regarding therapy. The social worker met with me to discuss my activity levels before I got sick. He's composing a letter for the doctor to sign asking for one week of therapy (to start). If I can show them solid ... Read more

Still waiting for Medicaid to loosen up and start paying for physical therapy so I can get walking again. Meantime, the roommate from (Hades) has returned, but she's in the room next to mine . I'll probably hear her screeching tonight. I'm... Read more
Sigh of relief...

In the middle of the night last night my roommate demanded yet again to be taken to the hospital, so the ambulance came for her. I can't fully relax yet because they're saying they don't know if she's coming back or not, although given that she... Read more

My Medicaid is still stalling, but it occurs to me there may be an up-side. The social worker here is looking for housing possibilities for me. The delay may give him more time. I've barely slept in a week thanks to my roommate. Last night ... Read more

My physical therapy is on hold again. Last time it was for a week due to a problem with my Medicaid. Nobody's telling me what's going on despite repeated requests. I don't know how I'm supposed to progress without therapy. Meantime, I have a new... Read more

I haven't had access to a computer since February. I was hospitalized the first week in April for cellulitis in my right leg. I was there for five weeks, and now I'm in a rehab facility learning to walk again. Before the hospital I stayed at my ... Read more

Just a quick update. I move to my friend's place Friday morning. Monday I meet with a legal services office for the disabled in Santa Rosa who may be able to help me get a voucher to help pay my rent (when I have rent to pay). And this morning ... Read more

Okay, lots to report. I have to leave the shelter on Friday morning since I've been there for six months. A friend is allowing me to stay with him until I find an apartment. This is a huge relief, because the alternative was giving at least a gr... Read more

Trying to gather all the necessary documentation for my transitional housing application. Geeze, I wish I'd known at the time that all those "you're on the waiting list" letters would be needed for documentation! And some time this coming week I... Read more

The craziness continues. My old landlord is down to one one-bedroom apartment and wants $1,700 a month for it. Yeah, THAT'S gonna happen. I'm not even going to bother talking to them. Transitional housing is terminating at the end of the... Read more
