I;ve got to tell you, every damn time I see one of these studies, it really does make me feel good that children and adolescents will likely have a better-adjusted future than I had. But the thing that still bugs the hell out of me is that if you're an adult dealing with a VERY late diagnosis, there doesn't seem to be much - if anything - that "the community" wants to approach. How the hell am I supposed to deal with a Klinefelter Syndrome diagnosis so late in life, particularly when I think about what my life MIGHT have been like?

Anyway, this is good reading. Hope it helps for anyone dealing with an EARLY diagnosis, but know this...

You're not alone.

If I Am Silent...

Let's see... where was I?

Apparently, there's a blog here with my name on it. And it would appear that I have not done a single damn thing with it for over...


Over a year-and-a-half.

So why the sudden interest in adding a new entry? Let's see... since many of my long-ago posts were (not) about work, let's start with that topic.

I'd been employed in 2011 when I had to go on medical leave for glaucoma. Was off work for a time before finding chainmaille jewelry as a hobby which I hoped would turn into a long-term profession, but found it to be not profitable. Not surprising, since the market is quite flooded with maillers.

Which led to a stint with a senior employment program with the county. Which led to an actual job as an Animal Care Specialist - which unfortunately ended as money ran out for part-time employees. It was back to the senior employment program after only seven weeks.

Then, in March of this year, I found a sweet job with an A/V company. Great benefits, great people, great everything. Until...

Let's just say for now that I'm on short-term disability. Maybe if I get my ass in gear and I can get back in the "keeping my mind busy and update this thing more than every eighteen months" frame of mind, look forward to more entries.

In the meantime, yes, I'm still here.
