  • And girls can be the worst. It still amazes me that grown people can behave like they did in grade school. I agree with Griff and Miki. It sounds like some pretty unhealthy competition going on at work that is creating a hostile work environment for you. I'm sure all the negative energy that you are surrounded by at work is effecting your health and mental state. Please come here for support when you need to and we will tell you that you are OK. There have been days that I have logged on here feeling lower then a snakes belly. A few hours in chat and I am literally LOL and feeling much better.

    I read a good book recently titled "I can't believe she did that." It's about female competition in the work place. I got alot out of it.

    I also love your avatar!!

    Hang in there and come hang out here when you can. There is power in numbers. Especially when intelligent women get together!!
  • I will look for that book, maybe it will give me some insight to why this nonsense is going on. Don't they know I'm a good person.

    My avatar reminds me of where I want to be. I'm a country girl stuck in Sin City of all places. LOL

    My mind is tired from thinking to much, I'm glad I posted, I do feel better even though I haven't slept yet.

    Thanks for replying and I wish you a pain free day.

  • You are doing all the right things and keep in mind you have to do what is best for you. My boss just doesn't want to let me off any hook. After my knee replacement last summer I ask for one of the aides to escort the "jailbirds" to lunch. He said NO so I did it. Kids were very understanding about one of them walking with me in case I stumbled. THEN he wanted to throw it back in my face at the end of year eval. I am not even going to ask for anything this year and make sure I smile at whatever he tells me to do. I am, however, going to ask my surgeon for a written list of what I should NOT be doing just to cover my butt. Some bosses can be pissy little boys.
  • Heck, I'll be there! I love to play poker and I don't know if you'd ever see me past that cup of coffee LOL! You, Miki and I could get into a LOT of trouble :jawdrop: I do miss the desert, though I don't know if Vegas qualifies anymore. If you need a little country air you're welcome to come on out and visit my little mini farm in Missouri. I'm surrounded by woods and it's beautiful, lush and green.

    Hey, if you WANT to work do what it takes to keep doing it. Don't let those female dogs in heat drive you out. If you really can't do it I totally understand. I don't sleep more than 2 hours at a time and I can't imagine going to work everyday- I have no idea how you manage.

    Hang in there gal :)


  • I have the beach.....sounds like we are pretty much set with some variety here.... ;)

  • Mean people suck...The joke is going to be on them because now my NS wants me off work for 3 months when he gives me my implant. He said because he knows I won't take it easy and just do my light duty, important to heal right. He must have felt sorry for me today, he even gave me a trigger without asking. I must really look like sh@tz.

    Okay, some-one's telling me I need a break!

    So how is everybody else? I read the boards a little bit and I saw "The letter to the Normals". I think I need more than a few copies of that one.

    "Spoons" was good too, but the type of people I'm around couldn't count and may start a rumor that I have Lupus among my many issues. LOL

    Well, I still haven't had any sleep and must try again. My eyes are hurting and swollen. I have to be to work at midnight and have a meeting with MGR in the morning.

    I hope everybody is pain free today. thanks for being there, its good to find new friends.

  • hey sounds like you work for the government with all the BS they are doing. why do i say that? because i also have chronic pain, leg neuropathy and a fusion from L3 to S1 and am getting greif. i am a disabled veteran and work at a VA hospital and am fighting the fight of my life to keep my job. i work in a boilerroom and have filed a EEO ( equal employment oppertunity ) requst with my department because i will fail my yearly physical at end of august. now they are trying to medically retire me, fill out a limited duty form, which i refused because i am disabled now no recovering from an injury. and yes co workers don't understand and no matter what you say or do they won't understand. just document evrything, keep a good file of everything they say or give you, and don't bite when they egg you on. i understand how alone you feel at work but remember you are not alone!!!!!
