      Pt-2, Aug-2016:
      OTOH, a very-pleased wife of a client referred me to a potential client, just today - HOPE springs eternal! :-)
      Wish me luck...

      Yoo-hoo!... Where are ya, honey?
      I'm officially homeless since Oct-2015, had my FT client's home as my sole domicile till mid-March 2016, & now bounce from 1 cheap BnB to the next. It's a tenuous life. ;--}

      Anyway, outside of the Twilight Zone of former clients claiming i'm their current aide,
      i have a plethora of apps out & am hoping =someone= reaches me for an interview. Like, SOON. [h&p]

      Pt-4:
      so... it wasn't my trainee shift shadowing her, it was just a total coincidence FOUR DAYS
      after i applied for a Lifeline tech-support job.
      Believe it or not! --- Strange, but true. =:--O

      Pt-3:
      Turns out a client from April-2012 had phoned for help with his Lifeline, & gave ME as the contact person / PCA.
      [This was the Client From H*** --- the worst person i've ever worked for in my life, in any job.]

      Pt-2:
      I text the woman, ask if she has the tenant's phone-code [to get the door buzzed open].
      She's totally confused, as she thinks I AM THE CAREGIVER for the client?!... ::lol::

      The Lifeline phone thing was beyond weird. U won't believe what happened.
      I got to the address, it's not a house - it's a massive apt-complex, with 4 or 5 huge bldgs. Plus it's hot as H*** & i can't get into the lobby, the airlock foyer is a furnace.

      I hear ya re clients who think they are the only draw on Ur svcs, or that U can do anything they need / want, ignoring job duty limits.
      It's a common problem. :-(
      My appeal re denial of Unemployment benefits will be heard - no date yet.

      i lost time-&-a-half pay when the clients cancelled July-4th, & then this wk they cancelled their CONTRACT with the agency.
      They hired an independent PCA to live there 7-nites a wk.
      Today i'm meeting a woman to try my hand at install / svc calls on Lifeline phone units; we'll see how that goes.

      Happy 4th of July!... LOL.
      I know, it's a bizarre American holiday & Brits don't celebrate it. Sadly, i'm 'celebrating' having it OFF, as the client's family chose to cancel today's shift. Wa-a-a-ah!... So in 2-weeks' time, i'll have 5/6 my $350 net pay.
      This sucks.

      I was banned until June-23, & when i tried to log in that day, was AGAIN refused access -
      apparently PF-uk works on a different calendar than the rest of the world. ::Eye-roll::
      No time to log on till today, job-hunting like a maniac.

      Hope the new job is TERRIFIC. ::thumbs-up::

      My work-life sucks ATM - boss is mad that i put in for unemployment after Dec layoff [in March, with $10 in my checking-acct]. So now she gives me 3 days work / wk, not 5.
      $350 / wk net is poverty. I have to MOVE come Sept, & i won't have rent-money.

      Got off promptly @ noon, but due to a bobble in public transit,
      didn't get HOME till after 2-PM.
      [Jammed shuttle-buses running from Oak Grove inbound,
      they were doing constrXn at Assembly Square.]
      Need sleep - will go to bed @ 11 & set no alarm! :-)

      OK Molly is officially a freak dog, not only does she remove cutlery from the dish washer, but I just found her chomping on a hammer

      Tues 5/5, #3:
      I take a decent multivit for Srs every day, but that's no substitute for SLEEP - esp uninterrupted REM.

      re immune suppression, i know -
      lack of sleep is a killer with this schedule. Even if all goes like clockwork, i travel at least 90-mins, work 11.5 or 12 hrs, return 90-mins or 2-hrs depending, sleep 10 or 10:30 to 4:30, up & depart by 5:30. Physically it's not taxing, but the job is huge stress - she's so fragile & can be very confused & perseverant.

      T 5/5 11-AM
      Spending a drizzly day @ home, nursing ME. Slept @ 1-AM, up @ 8:30; cough, sneezes, & whenever i'm vertical, hot water runs out my nose, dammit. No fever, but glands up, eyelids puffy. // This begins to sound like "The Perils of Pauline", every time I think i've "fixed" 1 thing, 5 go south. Will APPEAL the U-I ruling tomm.
    20. leashedForLife
      leashedForLife
      Depending upon whether or not i'm coherent tomorrow, i'll go APPEAL that dam*ed "judgement".
      If not tomm, then Wed - but i gotta do it, in person. // So tired, & very disheartened. If i weren't so bone-deep exhausted, i'd cry.
