Hello my lovely followers. As most of you have noticed, I havent been as active here on DA as I once was and that is due to a whirl-wind of live changes that have rocked me the past few months. Back in October I decided to leave my job as a veterinary assistance, being unable to take the stress of the job as well as being unable to deal with my boss and her attitude towards me. It was a taught decision but one that needed to be done for my own mental health as I suffer from depression and have for over 12 years now and working in the sort of environment that I was in was only making it worse.
After I left my job I went on a Disney vacation with my boyfriend, a trip we had planned and paid for months before I quit and while I enjoyed it greatly, my anxiety and stress over finding a new job did torment me over the course of our vacation but I didnt let it ruin my trip.
Once back from my Disney trip and no longer in the warm, happy world of Disneyland, my depression flared its ugly head once more. I had little money, as my old job paid me poorly so I lived from pay check to pay check and I had to rely on my boyfriend and his income greatly which was hard for me as I like to be independent and with Christmas coming up and having no money for gifts, I couldnt help but spiral into a pit of despair. I filed for unemployment assistance from the government but due to the holidays I didnt get any money from them until 5 weeks after I had left my job. Money was tight over the Holidays but I did enjoy spending time with my family and boyfriend who spent this Christmas with me instead of heading back home to his family.
I did managed to find a new job though, as a dental tech for cleaning dogs teeth without anesthesia. It is a difficult job, as the dogs are away and sometimes they wiggle or try to bite but I love it, even though the hours so far have been few and far between since this is a flow season for us. I have been busy training with my new boss, as I will be going on a business trip to Calgary with her the beginning of February for 2 weeks which is another reason why I wont be on much until after I return from Alberta in Mid-February.
This means that art updates will be very few and far-between and roleplaying will have to wait until I return home and can settle my life out more. I hope that you all can be patient with me until that time and understand that I will return once things are smoothed out.
