Work...

we are all settled in to TX... trying to make the best of it... it is definitely not southern california... i found a new primary dr here... not so sure i like her, but for now she gave me the referrals i needed... and the derm's office got me in quickly... was the first time in a long time i did not get cut visiting the derm... i was super excited... until he stated it was bc he needed insurance approval first... so i am scheduled to return july 16th for 3 biopsies... normally this would not bother me, i am way too used to being cut on... but i just got my first job in 9 yrs, i start on the 2nd... i figure if i can handle 2 kids with all the previous cuts i should be good... but one of my moles is on my foot between the big toe and the one next to it... so as i am getting used to being on my feet all day again i am also going to let my foot get cut... i feel like such a baby... whining... but this is so important to me... i haven't worked in forever... and when i got my initial diagnosis and treatment it was really hard on us financially... i didn't qualify for state disability bc i hadn't worked in so long... and social security said i "handled treatment too well" to qualify... so i am trying to learn to keep my mouth shut about melanoma for awhile... i am being started as a part time employee, but hoping to work it into a full time gig with benefits... but i fear that if i mention melanoma too early they will find any excuse to not give me full time... so now i need to figure out a logical, non cancer related explanation for always being covered up in 90-100 degree days... wish me luck... oh yeah, and for the dr appts that have started again...
