Today was my first day of my new part time job! I really liked it. The office is laid back and comfortable and my bosses are super interesting and really nice. I am not expecting this to be too hard on my health. I am actually just REALLY happy to have something to do so I can feel productive! WOOHOO!! I was hoping to find a job that would be flexible and understanding & I'm very hopeful that this is it.
I answer the phone, greet customers (which isn't crazy busy right now) and I look cute behind the desk. LOL okay, well I create new files, tag/label Keys and keep the office area clean and presentable. I also sign for parts that are delivered and well, that's about it. It is receptionist in absolute definition. No real stress or heavy responsibility. It's just part time and I am sure I am going to really enjoy being there (and getting a paycheck) haha. I found out that working while on disability is actually encouraged. As for my Medicare Benefits they will continue (even if I make too much money)haha, ya right ;)
This is a big step for me post transplant. It's my first "real world" job, my first attempt at returning to the "work place" where I am counted on & I am getting paid to do. It feels good though to walk into an interview and get offered the job! You cannot imagine how doubt creeped into my head and whispered "you won't get a job, you've been off work for too long, you aren't good enough " I understand none of that is true, but that's what we do to ourselves right?. I dug down and found the confidence I KNOW I have and during my interview. . .I KNEW I did a great job & I would have been surprised if I hadn't been offered the job. That's not being arrogant, that's being able to find my confidence!
I might go into more details about my emotions and concerns with returning to work. I feel it would be a great post, but right now I just want to lay down and make up for my 7am morning! haha!!
