Thomas's Medical Fund
Hi, we are friends of Thomas who is needing some medical assistance while he has been unemployed for around 6 months after moving back to Houston to deal with health issues.
He left a promising career in Austin to come home to Deer Park to get some psychiatric help. He saved for eight months and several thousand dollars to cover bills, but a job has not come and new bills have stacked up.
The antidepressants that had worked for the previous 12 years are no longer functioning, and because hospitalization is too expensive, he is currently staying at home and has been given lithium as a mood stabilizer.
Thomas is also selling many of the collectible goods he owns at hungrybugdiner.com to make ends meet.
Thank you for visiting.
Writing a quick update after far too long. Didn't intend to disappear, but provide a dramatic before and after. I interviewed all over and things didn't quite work out, so the reveal delayed. I interviewed with JET, and got on the waitlist, I just found out. It's not a yes, but it's not a no, and it's still far beyond where I started out near catatonic in bed. Thanks again for the support. It's still appreciated.
It's been a while since I updated, but it's been a while since anything major happened. This is good and bad. My depression is under as much control as it can be living at home and unemployed, so much so that I'd dismiss it as a factor. It's all anxiety now, getting back to employment two weeks before a perilous election. I see the psychiatrist one (last? Not really) Time tomorrow and a final twist or addition to the drugs to get me from going 0mph to 60mph would be immensely helpful. We'll see how it goes.
It turns out the disqualification wqs due to an anxiety medication I was prescribed. Even a legal prescription is disqualifying for this position. So despite passing the interview I'm out of contention for six months. Unfortunate, but hoping I can find a better job.
Good news and bad news as I pass the job interview but am disqualified for some reason in the medical exam. I find out more information Monday. The whole year's been a lot like this. Still, it appears a testament to the antidepressant working that I'm frustrated and disappointed and not a crying wreck. Baby steps? Updates as soon as I have some news.
