I was approved financially! WHEE
Now they have to obtain stuff and schedule an OR and whatnot, then I get a real actual date.
The wait is nearing its conclusion!
I saw a friend today that I haven't seen in a long time. I mean a looooooong time. Since like begining/pre college years (1992ish). We chatted for a while, and one thing he pointed out is that he missed chatting with me, because I used to be such a perceptive person.
He was honestly surprised I hadn't gone into psychiatry or become some kind of therapist. I wondered why I hadn' considered this, because I always *WARNING EGO INFLATING, PLEASE MAKE ROOM* considered myself as a pretty perceptive person, at least as regards people and the things they do.
Looking back, I did take a psych course or two in school, but I remember they were always held in those giant auditoriums. blah.
Yet another facet of my life changed by the fact of my hearing impairment. C'est la vie.
Maybe I should reconsider a career change now that high tech has become such a crapshoot.
