today was busy but pretty good.
Saw the doctor early, got my meds renewed for another month. I still get very sad by the end of the day if I miss a dose. But neither one of us wants me to be taking these forever, so we are going a month at a time, hoping to stop taking them pretty soon. I know that seeing a therapist would help a lot too, to be able to process my stuff. But the divorce is supposed to be final in about a week, so I can wait.
Jim paid me back some money he owed me today and was snippy about it. However, he called later to apologize. Then he called my lawyer (who is also my uncle) who quizzed him about health insurance for me until I'm working. Jim got emotional, my uncle stonewalled, and Jim came by to bend my ear about it. Now I don't see any reason for us to go to court at this point and told him so, so he went back to work. He called me and apologized again, twice in one day is amazing! He also promised that he will take it up with my uncle the next time, not play the two of us against each other.
My air conditioner started working again, for no reason I can figure, and works beautifully. I guess they had to recharge the freon or something, since they have pretty much replaced everything inside the apartment.
And (now this is a big one) I got a bank account!
I have been trying for MONTHS to do this, and finally today I walked into a bank in a Wal*Mart and they were having a "second chance checking account" promotion. I told them about the other overdrawn accounts, the guy (he was quite young) asked if they were with his bank (which they weren't), and he opened the account on the spot. I can write checks! I can deposit child support checks! I can get a bank card w/ a MasterCard symbol on it so I can write checks in stores! In one moment I am returned from the edges to middle class life. I'm still poor, but I'm not marginal any more. Wow.
So this has been a really good day for me.
