Emotional Wreck

Well, first things first... I went to the doctor this morning, but there was a slight miscommunication and they hadn't gotten all my blood work back yet. My thyroid is much better - it's in the normal range. So that is good, but my blood pressure is slightly elevated... so back on medicine I go for that.

He wasn't sure what to make of the dizziness - he doesn't have the blood work to see if it's vitamin related at this point... and he didn't think it was dehydration. But he said that it could be vertigo... and gave me some medicine for that. If the medicine doesn't help - he said that he'd like me to go back to the neurologist and see if it's a seizure of some type. Only time will tell, but we're looking into it and will get to the bottom of it.

In other news - I was laid off this morning. Apparently, they are having to cut a bunch of positions at my office and mine was eliminated. I know that deep down it's a blessing, BUT that doesn't make it any less of a shock... emotionally or financially. So, I'm reeling a little bit from all of the news of today.

I did get a good severance package... and I know I wasn't a big fan of my job... but it's going to take me a day or so to process through the emotions of it all. It's sort of unreal at this point... I am at home now and don't have to go back... except one time next week to get all my stuff. They told me to go ahead and take the rest of today and tomorrow - and come back next week to meet with my bosses and tell them what projects I had going. (yeah sure... I'll help them) Then spend all my time focusing on finding another job.

So far they've cut two other people from our office this morning - but no one knows if they're finished or not. They have a staff meeting at 4 to discuss all the changes... so far my friend Hope is still there, so she's keeping me updated about what's happening... I'll post more as I get it figured out.
