I'm still alive...

I never thought the day would come but I am kind of tired of talking about Crohn's and being sick and my ostomy. I guess I am just at the point where it's so much a part of my life that I no longer have daily revelations or frustrations over the changes that have taken place. I have even stopped trying to reach out to other people or google this or that about ileostomy surgery. The bottom line is, I am at peace and mentally okay so there really is no need to compare myself to others because ultimately, everyone copes differently.

As per the past couple of posts, I really don't have much to say. I went on a job interview on Saturday at a local brewery/restaurant. I told myself after my last restaurant job that I would NEVER, EVER, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, waitress again, but now I find myself trying to do just that. I think it had a lot to do with where I was in my life at the time health-wise that made my last experience what it was. I know that I have genuinely enjoyed my other serving jobs and the idea of working at a brewery has got me excited. I am looking forward to meeting new people and working in a fun environment. I will find out on Tuesday or Wednesday if I got the job.

Of course, along with thinking about entering the work-force again, I had myself a tad stressed. It is scary to think about working again and being responsible to someone other than my sister for showing up to do my job. The security of working for my family right now and the peace of mind associated with knowing they understand my limitations gives me incredible comfort. But I also know that since surgery, there hasn't been one day when I have been unable to watch my nephew. Really, when I think about it, there are no limitations. The only thing that can limit me is my attitude.

Well, with the job prospects on my plate and my fall classes registered for, it's looking like a lot is about to change really soon and I am incredibly excited, nervous, and anxious to see how everything plays out, all with good health on my side, of course.
