Drum roll.................................................., well I said I had some big news to share, and I do my friends. I am trying my best to make some changes here at the Oldham's. Things cannot, and should not continue going on the way that they have for so long now. I love my husband with everything I have, and I cherish my marriage for the treasure it is. I honor, and respect my husband, that has not changed, nor will it ever. But, I also deserve to be loved, honored, and respected as Eddie's wife. I am not going against God or Eddie, I would never choose to do that. I am just choosing to live my life that was created by God, and gifted to me. I cannot honor my Father, by allowing myself to continue to be dishonored. I am getting ready for some big changes. I called Siskin, the rehab hospital that I stayed at for 11 days after I left intensive care back in 2011. I will be setting up an appointment this coming week to go in and talk to some people concerning how they can help me. First, through a vocational program for people that have had a stroke. They access me, give me an aptitude test, find out my likes and dislikes, and possible abilities. Then if all goes well, I get enrolled in a 6-9 month long program. The program teaches me life, and work skills. I go there Monday-Friday 9A.M. to 3 P.M. After I complete the program, they help me find a job. They will stay closely connected with me for 3 months after I get a job, supporting me, cheering me on. They also help me with no cost, or very low cost transportation to and from my job. This will be so good for my health, in every way. Mentally, physically, emotionally. I will feel as if I am among the living, contributing to society. Not just a worthless puddle of mud. Next mission needed to work on, getting in Church. I will continue to pray that Eddie will choose to go to Church with me, but even if that does not happen, I must choose to follow my Father, not man. I love you all, and will keep you updated.
