No, I didn't lose 40 pounds! Hell, I still haven't even lost 30! Actually, not even 25! I found a different bariatric doc down here, but he wants a $400 "program fee". Such B.S., really, because again when I asked what the "program fee" covered, it was all the typical pre-op stuff....you know, the stuff that I've already been through and done? So it looks like I'll be going to the guy that only rips me off for $250...when I get a job.
Yep, that's that the 4-0 stands for. 4 job interviews, one which was 3.5 hours long. Still no job offer. The most recent interview was for a company that is contracted by the state's Department of Juvenile Justice. I am disouraged and I am pissed. I am an outstanding nurse and any place I applied would be lucky to have me. You know why? Because I work my ass off, do the jobs usually of 3 people, and do it well! My patients love me...which in turn, reflects positively on the company I work for. It's not that I do this on my own though, this is what God has chosen for me to do in life...and that is why I rock at it. Which makes it hard right now to have the faith and trust in Him that I know I should. If He gave me this Spiritual gift, then why isn't He letting me put it to good use?!
So I'm still sending out resumes, but tomorrow I'm heading to all the local restaurants to apply for waitressing jobs. Hell, at this point, I'll even flip burgers at McD's. Would you like fries with that?
