April 4th...the day I start back to work. It has been 2.5 years since working. I am excited and nervous all at the same time. I mean, I feel good, but what will happen when I start working 8 hours a day? Can my body adjust? There is no easing back into it...it is full time right off the bat!
I am doing temp work and have a position for 4 weeks at a home health place. It is 6 blocks from my house so I am able to walk to work and only have to encounter one street light. Life is too good! It is a small company...only about 15 in the office so it is a nice transition back into the work force. The people are very friendly and helpful. There is even a co-worker who is celiac so she gives me helpful tips as well and we swap information back and forth. I enjoy the work pretty much immediately. It feels good to be back and contributing something again.
The first day goes by...and I feel fine! I am not tired. I know that I can do this. My body is going to cooperate with me. Even by the end of the first week, I am still doing very well and have no problems with energy and putting in full days. I am so happy!
Ah...is this the beginning of a new life?!?!?!
