I also met with a social worker briefly. She asked a bunch of different questions related to mental health and who would be my primary caregiver.
Social worker: "How do you handle stress?"
Me: "I think pretty good, although my husband would think otherwise this morning."
(the social worker gave me the ole' one eyebrow up trick)
Me: "He wanted me to read a map to get here....how can you read a map if you don't know where you are on the map? Needless to say we had an interesting chat" I chuckled. She agreed with me.
Of course she asked me if I did drugs, smoked, drank alchohol, took pills for mental health, etc. etc. Do we have transportation? Do I take my medicine regularly? Have I ever missed taking my medicine? A lot of the questions overlapped a bit.
I handed her some papers to fill out for the National Transplant Assistance Fund. She said she would fill them out and mail them back to me so I can start fundraising.
I guess I passed her test.....she asked me to be part of a support group she was putting together for transplant patients. (I told her I enjoy talking to others about this and mentioned my blog)
Next....was the nutritionist....and the renal diet!
