Going to see my job developer this morning.... I'm so tired.
Well today I go see my job developer. She is a really nice lady. For those of you who don't know what a job developer is I will tell you. It a person that works for a company to help people who have disabilites find work with an employer who understand that you have disabilitesand there is some thing you can and can't do while working.


Mine is I can't sit longer than a hour but lately its like an 1/2 now I need to get up for a few and stretch out. I can no longer stand like I use to the mim is 20 before my legs go numb. Walking is 20 min before legs go numb. No heavy lifting only up to 5 pounds everyone once in awhile nothing repet.,.


I'm looking for an office job doing medical billing and coding. I have been looking for a long time. No one wants to hire you if you little experience in medical billing and coding, but I am good at what I do..

Well just wanted to let you know what I am doing today.. I just hope I can wake up before I go. didn't sleep good my body is being a pain from having pain..

Take care, and Have a great Day!!!

Sam,
I hope it goes well today! Sounds like some type of billing job or other computer based job is just right for you. It would be really nice if you could get one that allows you to work from home. That way you could be able to do your necessary up / down regime as needed. I do computer work from home and it works out great.

Good luck. Let us know how it goes.

I try to be Sweet.. I had redone my resume I had asked her if she thought it was too busy and she thought the same thing. So I had redone that while I was there. We actually did not go out hunting for a job, She knew when I walked in I wasn't feeling good. I ended coming home and took a 2 1/2 hour nap. Still kinda yuck feeling this evening. I think its from the allergy pill I took last night.

Interesting. Due they have job developers in every state? How can I go about finding one here in Jersey? Is this a government thing?

I've got an idea Linda. When your toe recovers from the skin graft you can walk into the establishment where you use to work and fill out a job application. That would be a hoot. Even if you would never want to work there again you could let them know you are out there searching for work. I hope you don't have to worry about a job and SS come through for you. At least temporary help is better than no help. I hope you have excellent results with your skin graft. I am surprised you are willing to have that done with all the trouble you had with the regular healing process of your toe. My thoughts are with you, and I hope for great success and quick healing.
Strength and Warmth,
Sheryl

Hi Sheryl:

I think the trouble with the first go around was the smoking. There will be NONE of that with this skin graft. Speaking of the old job, I'm surprised none of my co-workers have called to see how I am doing. I do recall, that when someone left, there was a general "shunning" policy.

All states have what they call Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation Services or RSC. What that is a place that works with people who have disabilities or is on workers Comp. to find out what they can do and can't. I have been working with them since 2005. They paid for me to go to school. They will give you money for clothes when you find a job and money for gas for going out hunting for a job. They pay these job developers money to help you find a job that is right for you. It's just extra help helping you find a job faster. So this is something that some of you may want to look into. Like I mentioned before I am looking for part time work in a medical office doing medical billing and coding.
