Isunique Posted September 13, 2008 Share Posted September 13, 2008 Has anyone had to look for a new job while going through all of this. I don't think I will be at my current job for very long. Quick history. I got my DX in Feb 08 surgery Apr 08. In between I was going for tests, etc and trying not to think the worst. My caring boss wrote me up for poor work performance for the dates of 03/03 and 03/04, guess what I was having a FNA on the 3rd and had to take off the 4th, due to a small lung oops. I schedule transportation for the elderly residents at the apartments where I work. The mistakes were nothing major, some typos, a little close on times, etc. She wrote that she spent all day and worked late to correct my mistakes. Well, I know that is not the case, but I can't do anything about it. Of course the fact that I was dealing with a potentially fatal disease didn't seem to concern her. I had my surgery in April and returned to work on June 11th. I am now getting written up for things that were done by others while I was off. So, that brings me to the place where I have to think about that process of looking for another job, not fun. My boss is one of those two faced type of people one is all smiles and what ever you need things and the other is all I care about is my self, and you can frig off. After I was back for awhile I sent her an E-mail telling her that yes, I was having some problems with my memory, words and verbalizling, results from the surgery, the very next day she wrote me another one of those caring E-mails to tell me that I forgot to put a return time down on one of the schedules. The daily sheet that the drivers use did have the return time on there. I should also mention that she is the micro manager from ****. I have managed to deal with the DX of LC, major surgery, etc and still only take one dose of wellbutrin a day. I have had to increase that to twice a day because of the work stress. I keep thinking, why am I letting this BS get to me, it is not worth it, but I have this old fashioned thing with work ethics and having someone tell me that I am not doing my job right just doesn't sit well. I can't afford to quit. Okay, so that brings me back to my original question, Has anyone had to look for a new position after being DX with LC and has that been an issue with hopeful new employers? Thanks for letting me vent some. I have found that if I talk with someone or type out my problems they tend to seem a little smaller or I can just put them where they belong better. Have a great weekend and pray for all that are in the path of Ike. Sarah Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
