Perhaps you heard...

... a huge sigh of relief sometime around Thursday 1 p.m. Pacific time?


That would have been Tim and I. He contacted the unemployment office. It turns out that, not only will he probably be eligible for that extension of benefits, he has two more extensions on his current benefits left (one of which is 7 weeks' worth) before he even needs to worry about it. And we still have four weeks left on his current benefits.


This means that, as hoped, Tim will get some time to try out the medications he'll be prescribed. They can fiddle with doses and brands and find a good baseline before things get any tighter. Phew!

Sigh of relief followed by collective cheer! Congrats, and I'm so happy for you. Does this mean a G4tv upgrade is in your future?

Thanks to all for the happy thoughts & congrats. We're definitely relieved! Now we're just trying to keep from climbing the walls until Friday, when Tim has an appointment with a psychiatrist to get a more definite diagnosis re: bipolar.

And Mrs MT, Yes indeed we upgraded to G4 (also getting Animal Planet and Discovery Health and a few others!) as soon as I was finished altering our Blockbuster subscription. It's fabulous and Attack of the Show keeps us in stitches.
