Waxing Gibbous

Last night I went to a baseball game. It was a gorgeous night and I don't mind telling you I had a lovely time. And - not to get all Bull Durham on you - baseball players sure seem handsome from a safe distance. There were many trampy young things prancing about - all quick-tanned and tube-topped and I got misty-eyed during the national anthem. All was as it should have been.

Asthma has been goosing me for a few days. You see, I no longer have benefits as I no longer have a job. Therefore, moreover and furthermore - my very expensive asthma medication has become quite precious to me. So, I came up with the clever idea to half my dosage. Smart, right? Well, it really was working out fine - until I pulled an all-nighter and got myself all stressed out and under the weather. For the past couple of days, oxygen has been playing hard to get - the little minx.

What else? I have decided that I hate freelancing. There's nothing free about it. I would like a job now please. 'Uncle', I say. So, let's just cut it out now. I will go put my blazer and skirt on and wait. Corporate Canada - I am at your disposal.

I love you all.

You can still freelance with a full time gig for a bit Miss Slush. The stress factor goes down in many ways... sigh... thats what I did last year. Now I'm in the same boat as you... and I feel the same way... Freelance is a love/hate thing for me. -Hugs and Doughnuts

Are you taking Advair? Explain your situation to your GP, and ask for a free doctor's sample. You get 28 doses per sample. If you take it once a day, it will last you a month. Go for the 250 mcg, the stronger one (well, just take what you can get; don't be picky), and you might be able to stretch it to once every day and a half, making it last a month and a half. Good luck.

Sorry to hear about the health problems.

... it's probably the freelancing.

The people I know who prefer freelancing do so because they've got something going (art, typically) that needs the time.

So, maybe there's an opportunity knocking and you haven't noticed it yet.
