I Told Ya 2012 Was Gonna Be My Year!

Okey-dokey, I have good news! Starting on Tuesday ...

I am going back to work part-time!

Yay! Go me! I will be working at my old place of employment, as a file clerk. They know all about the MS, so it wasn't a problem for me as far as letting them know I was sick. They were there and stood by me when I was diagnosed. It's a medical office. They know what MS is. It's a nice, easy, no-stress job and it's only part-time. Different from what I originally did there, which is way too stressful for me to go back to, but still among the amazing people I used to work with.

I'm so excited, I can't even tell you! I've been out of the medical field for awhile now, but next week, I'll be rocking these again:
Beautiful scrubs. I had to go buy new ones. Thanks Topamax for the lost poundage. That was a cool side effect that I appreciate.

It's so surreal to me that I'm going back. When I was diagnosed and tried to go back about a month or two later; I was so sick, I just couldn't do it. Finally, seven years later, I am finally feeling halfway back to normal. Which is awesome for anyone with Multiple Sclerosis. I think this is a great thing too because it will get me out of the house. If you have a job to go to, you spend your time more effectively. Instead of watching Teen Mom 2 marathons all day, maybe I'll get at least one chore done.

So, if the blogs slow down, you at least know why. I aim to keep them up, but I don't like to make promises I can't keep. I will still blog, it just may be less frequently. Then again, maybe they'll pick up.

And hey, who knows, maybe I'll meet a cute sales rep and have something fun to tell you! Keep your fingers crossed!


  1. Ali, congratulations about the part time job. It's a bonus they know about MS and are involved in the medical field. Some employers can make it so tough and stressful, and they no nothing about what you go through. Enjoy! Yes it will give you some confidence back as well :-)

  2. well done, I have been doing volunteer work one day a week, but am now adding another day - I've been diagnosed for 8 years. I am thrilled for you to be back in the workforce with the people you know and who will support you! All the best!
