Today has been one of those days where I just have to laugh, because I honestly can't make this stuff up. After two out of work I went back, and within an hour, SEVEN people told me how bad I looked. One went as far as to tell me "you look like shit" now here I am, trying my hardest to get my health back, get back to normal, and I already have others reminding me that I'm not "healthy or normal". I gracefully just smiled and stated that I'm working my hardest on getting back to me and that I was happy to be back... within two hours of being back I was called in by the director who demanded to know what I was on. Well... nothing I'm on nothing... she proceeded to send me for a drug screen, and then questioned if the doctor who wrote the letter stating that I could return to work actually saw me. YES she saw me, she's seen me often, and would never write a letter without seeing me! I feel hurt, sad, accused, discriminated against, and have added unnecessary stress. Oh, and I was made to leave work and can't return until the drug screen (which will be clear!) Is back. 💚
I am not going to apologize for being sick, for taking longer to heal, or for not fitting into a cookie cutter mold. Do not assume the worst of me. I was already anxious to go back after so long, this treatment I received is not okay. I'm trying to rise above it, but I'm honestly struggling because I want to be at work, I'm sick of bed, I'm sick of rest, I just want some normalcy back. .
