A date I will always remember, and It was probably the nicest way for anybody to lose their job, and for me nice is good.
I’d known the day was coming since the middle of May. Since the day of the last visit to the hospital pain clinic, when the treatment they tried failed in helping to reduce my pain. It was nobody’s fault, the treatment just didn’t work for me.
At that point, I knew the wheels would be put in motion the have me released from my contract on medical grounds. this would be the second time that this has happened to me, the last time was 7 years ago.
What was different this time, well firstly I knew what was going to happen, and secondly, I have been supported all the way through the process by the people I work for and those I work with. At no point during the last year was I made to feel like a burden which, to be honest, didn’t surprise me in the slightest, I was only ever told that my welfare comes first.
I am saddened that I will no longer be going into work, and not working with my friends and colleagues, which is what I will miss the most. This time though I have not been cut adrift and left to find things out for myself because they are still looking out for me and helping me.
That’s why today I’m feeling so lucky and positive, I have so many people in my life now that I am grateful for.
Goodnight have a great weekend and take care,
Oh, and I’ve started to write a true love story, one I hope to finish writing in the next couple of weeks, fingers crossed.
