Been A Tough Week
Tuesday morning I was informed that I had the job and would start the next morning. All I had to do was pass a pulmonary test that would see if I could safely wear a respirator over an extended period of time. No problem because I had done it before.
Not only am I still unemployed, but I now am unable to work in a paintbooth, wear a respirator or do any extendedly strenuous work. For some reason I am not pulling enough Oxygen into my bloodstream when I breath to do such things. I breathe normal sized breaths but I'm not pulling out as much oxygen as I should.
I was feeling pretty down about it, but I guess I'll just have to do something else. I'm over the emotional disappointment but need to look in other directions.
The agency that hooked me to this job says that with my work-record and references they can probably get me something else even though they generally do only specialized and skilled labor. The girl at the agency said she felt guilty about it, and I don't know why, so she wants to see what she can do. I appreciate the help but she of all people doesn't need to feel guilty.
My landlord thinks that I should try for partial disability because my breathing limits what jobs I can do, but I don't feel disabled and really don't want to do that.
