I've sort of hesitated posting an entry because I've been so darned frustrated and a little down in the dumps and it's only the start of a New Year. I hate to shout the woes of a single mother but sheesh it's so hard providing emotional support to my kids alone.
My son needs lots of prayers. Joey is dying emotionally at the Jiffy Lube job. He has no direction or clue as to what he wants to do. He has suffered severely from depression in the past. My fear is he is falling slowly into the crevice again. It breaks my heart.
I'm also totally frustrated with PA OVR (voc rehab). The counselor talked him into taking courses at the Community College to get his feet wet the year before last. The first semester was totally paid for, as it was just experimental courses. He got a new counselor who assured us the next semesters would also be paid for or reimbursed. Not so....he just got a bill for $50.00 since he's been out of school for six months. He accrued $1,800 in loans and now has to pay them back at $50.00 a month. I can't get through to PHEAA (pa higher education) to ask for a deferrment or something. Really, I am ready to just sit down and cry. He owes me $150.00 a month for his car insurance and now this.
Well, crying is getting me absolutely no where so I'm asking that you all include Joey in your prayers because the power of prayer is so strong.
He see his psychiatrist next week for his six month check-up. Thank the Lord for that. The doctor has a way of calming him and helping him see things in a brighter light.
And...I got the final determination from my health insurance that he will be covered for at least the next two years as a temporarily disabled adult. His doctor submitted reams of paperwork which had to be reviewed so his meds will be covered. A huge relief as they would have cost me $1,600 a quarter.
And you know what, now that I've gotten this all off of my chest, I feel some strength returning to my sorry soul. So, off I go again to try to get through to PHEAA...wish me luck.
