  • Mood:

so life looks marginally better than it did last night.

I had a long chat with Ralf today. He still hasn't given up on me. I'm amazed, really I am. I'd thought our working relationship was irreparable, but he's not concerned about the mistakes I've made in the past, only about the future.

I told him about the job I'd applied for, and he said he would give me a glowing reference. He said I shouldn't have my career ruined by medical problems.

For perhaps the first time since last October, I have faith that I will succeed - that I will get this damned PhD and that I will get a job doing something I actually want to do. Now, just keep reminding me of that whenever I look like I'm about to fall apart again.
