Just found this thread after being away for several months.
Laurence: Welcome back. Hope thiings settle down for you for a while.
I agree with the above quote. Serious life events have a way of making the daily BS melt away into nothingness.
BTW, thanks for the kind thoughts and concerns about my absence. I am back but on a much reduced scale. Too much going on and too little down time to be much of a contributor here.
DW had back surger in June. Readmitted to hospital 2 days after discharge with uncontrollable pain.
June-August DW dealt with disabling pain and being incapacitated due to surgical problem that was not detected until early August.
August...had second surgery to remove 20 oz. of metal hardware from her spine. A screw was on her major leg nerve. No improvement after surgery. Surgeon says the problem is scare tissue from the two surgeries. There is no cure for this and no surgical option. Sorry about that and try to have a nice day!
Currently she lost her job due to not being able to return to work. She is on long term disability and will be forever. She lives on major pain meds and tries to get through each day.
My boss left in December. The GM left a month before that. Several key employees in my department have also left the company. Oh, and our regulatory agency walks in to do an audit..........while I am in the middle on one already from another agency. Nice!
ER is sure looking good right now.
Now where did I put that resignation letter?
