The day has come...

My internship ran out, and I'm now unemployed.
There is so much suck. I really liked working at my old job, I was good at it, and I liked the people there. And the money...




Anti-complaint:
My brother does not have cancer!

Seriously.

See, a few years back he started eating healthy and going to the gym. It was great. He's a tall, broad guy, and he was kind of fat.
Then he mysteriously kept losing weight, going to an unhealthy, weakened sort of state, he had nausea, and his stomach hurt, even though he wasn't dieting...
He has travelled a lot, both in the Far East, and in some Arabian countries, so the doctor checked for parasites etch. Nothing. He was down to 70 kilos by then...

One day it got so bad with the nausea that he stopped on the way to work at a bakery, to see if he couldn't settle his stomach with some bread.
The pain got so bad, he ended up asking staff to call an ambulance.

He was finally scheduled for two of those tests, where 1. they send a camera down your throat to look around, and 2. up your butt to look around from that end.

We were so scared, and my mum desperately kept babbling about lactose allergies, even though it had been ruled out.

He only had to go through the first test, because by then the doctor had an answer. Gluten allergy.

Seriously.

He's not even ill, he has an allergy. :roll:
And the Norwegian government gives him 1900nkr per month, tax free, to counter the extra costs for gluten free foods, and he gets to take classes on how to live a gluten free life.

The relief is massive!

Thanks. :)

Yeah, it's a mixed bag this week.
I do have a meeting with my union Monday, to make a plan for my job seeking endeavours (they do that), and my x-boss made me a kick-ass recommendation, so I'm hopeful.

If I go unhired for a while, I'll be taken full advantage at the courses etc. that my union offers. Always nice to add skills to the résumé.

Ah man, two of my bestfriends have a glutton allergy. They live with my best friend and their Dad also has the allergy. You have to be very careful with food at their house. Glad to hear it wasn't cancer though.

Sorry to hear about your unemployment.

Yeah, the selective eating can be a chore.

And thanks. :)

Hooray! Better the devil you know than the one you don't. :nod:

I suppose of all the things it could have been, a gluten allergy ain't half bad. :nod:

There's plenty of people who get by with it. I got a family friend a cookbook with all sorts of delicious gluten free recipes for christmas, and he's been doing fine for years. :la:
