    after being promoted!


    I went from working 20 hours a week to 42!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I had my first NINE hour day today and it was absolutley DRAINING on me.........thankfully I was not flaring.......so I made it through!

    Iam going to give it all I have.........Iam trying to find a substitute to be able to call just in case I am too sick or just need a day to rest!
    That will relieve a lot of stress from me knowing I have someone I can call if need be it!

    I also got a much deseerved raise! I have worked same place for 2 years and until now NO raise but they did give me two dollars and hour more....................

    However I have complete responsibility and much much more weight on my shoulders so two dollars may sound like a lot but the reality is that my boss who's position I took was making more than double than Iam now..that is why they are getting rid of him!

    Thay can't afford to pay him anymore !

    Well, I just wanted to let everyone know that I made it through my first day...........and hopefully my positive attitude will get me through many many more!!!!!!!!

    Hugs

    I hope you fair better than me. I just started working 33 hours a week, and I swear, I have one foot in the grave now. I have fms, and I push my self to the limits.
    I was working like 20 t0 25 hrs before.

    Goodnight, Hang Tough for as long as you can. And save some money if it is possible. I am in a big black hole as far as money goes right now. I could use that rainy day money now. Cept it don't exist.
