My husband has begun searching for a new job.
The reality of possibly losing most of my benefits has him on edge and searching far and wide.
Places like Cheyenne, Wyoming. To which I say WTF, and whatever.
It's not like it matters that much... I just won't EVER go outside again.
But for an additional 23k a year to cover our losses, I'd suck it up.
And he says if he could get on at one of the less desirable spots like that, then he could transfer to a better location later... somewhere warm again at least.
Basically this is all my fault for not keeping inside the VA medical system for treatments, even though I AM under treatment via my internal generator/spinal cord stimulator... but that doesn't show up in their records as monthly or regular treatment maintenance even though it maintains me every freaking day of my life. AND I have to see a person from OUTSIDE the VA to get it tuned up, which I have done a couple of times in the past year... but that doesn't show up in their records either.
I'm supposed to stay in their records on some sort of medication or something even though the meds they like to keep me on make me sick and miserable... it's like a freaking shell game I'm supposed to play with them to stay within the system to retain my benefits. It's sick.
Hopefully this will work out like the rep says and he will get it overturned on the basis of time and the fact that dropping me now is against their own statute. And if husband get a higher paying job in BumF*k out in the wild west... I guess that will be fine too. Federal retirement at better pay won't hurt his feelings over what he has now. I'll just have to adjust. And invest in lots of silk and wool layers I guess.
Hiking might be OK at least.
Cheyenne isn't the only place he is dropping his name in the bucket. It's just the only place I can remember atm.
The other place was equally cold and mid-westy.
Maybe Minneapolis. Eeeeppp!
Also... this would all be a lot easier if I'd just win the lottery or something.
Night help if I actually played. LOL
