No I haven’t found a new job yet, but I still have my reduced hours position. We upped my Cymbalta dose and I feel fantastic. Yes the work situation is kind of sucky, but I feel great. I feel at least as well as I did before the Prozac crash, maybe even better. It’s hard to say for sure since I didn’t have any unusual stressors while the Prozac was working. I have yet to notice any side effects. I feel incredibly balanced and at peace. Don’t get me wrong, every once in a while I have a mild panic attack about the job situation and supporting a family of 4 on a reduced salary/work schedule. But I have 18 years of experience and am good at my job. I will work that out.
I know I haven’t written any new Egret stories. I am sorry about that. The little free time I have had I have been polishing my resume and job hunting. And what little time I have set aside for Egret has been about getting the 7 selected stories out for the first book (editing polishing, working with the illustrator etc…). I am still hoping for Labor Day release, I know that might be a bit unrealistic. But that is my goal. Rachel showed me some amazing redoes, but you will have to buy the book to see them!
