Just an infection

So it turns out its probably just an infection.  I’m on super strong antibiotics though which should do the trick!

I went for another interview today. I find it’s like going on a first date. You are always on perfect behaviour, using your best manners and hope you make a great first impression.  You hope your new date doesn’t know any of  your exes and if they do, they said good things about you and you hope at the end of it you may even get that amazing first kiss only at the end of the interview you hope you get the job instead! Then a relationship is formed where slowly you become an item, a team and get to the first fart stage.. by then you are pretty much settled.

The thing about Paphos is, is that it’s a very small place.  I did my charity event and then they wrote about me in a magazine so lots of people know I have had melanoma. In a way that’s great cause i’m helping to spread awareness about it and show people that there is life and normality after cancer. However some may think that I might be a liability if they were to hire me.  What if I get sick again! Scary thought really, your past is your past but it’s always lurking just around the corner to bite your arse when you least want it to.

But I still want to write about my story, and hopefully people who know will overlook my past and see what a bright future I have ahead of me and what an asset I would be to any company. So fingers crossed I’ll have a job soon otherwise I’ll have to go busking to make money at this rate to pay my mortgage. 

If I didn’t get melanoma, I probably would not have lost my job.. and if I hadn’t have had melanoma, I’d probably be able to get a job easier.  But the worst of my worries are over, I may not have a job, but I don’t have melanoma either.  Here’s hoping that one of those stays the same and the other one changes soon.  But either way it’s not up to me.  I can’t make someone hire me anymore than I can make my melanoma stay away.   Although saying that I have a healthier lifestyle now so every little helps.

Hope all you are well.

    Alethea, just as I expected, there is no new threat of melanoma for you. 🙂 That is great! Hope your little infection will be gone as soon as possible. As to finding a new job, you are right there. It’s very unfair. Wishing you luck.
