Congratulations! And thanks for announcing your success.

I had some health issues and, as a result am partially disabled. My former employer took this as an opportunity to get rid of me. Because I was off on short-term disability during a crucial part of a major project and because chronic pain, that could not be managed with drugs, made me a crabby girl, they gave me a poor performance appraisal. People with poor performance appraisals don't get benefits like work permits. I could have fought if I wasn't as I'll as I was. In the famous Monty Python way, "I'm feeling much better!" but, the truth is I am still partially disabled. I'm still holding out for an alternative, part-time contracting, an employer who'd spring for this: http://www.techfresh.net/novelquest-emperor-pc-workstation/.

Some mornings I wake feeling as positive asTony Tiger; other days I am more like the GM Super Bowl commercial, a bit grim. Most days, I hobble about looking for the boundaries of my ability ad planning projects I think I can manage.

My age and other goblins took there toll on me. But, thanks to this group it really helped me to find ways to look for work and gave me some great advice on finding work.
