Losing for Me Journey - 4/7/17
Friday, April 07, 2017
Yesterday was an okay day at work. There was the usual drama. I need to get physical therapy and my manager wants me to get intermittent FMLA to do it. I'm going to follow up with the physical therapists near my job to see if they can accommodate my schedule and do it before work or during lunch before I take unpaid time. I should not be surprised by my manager's response. She is something else.
I need to find another job. I dread going to work every day and I know a large portion of my stress is work related. I've started looking and I hope I find something soon.
I was so glad the snow never came. I was worried about that. I had an interesting ride on the train home. I was talking to one of my train buddies and I found myself sharing about my childhood. I grew up with a mom who was clinically depressed and was not being treated. I know that now but as a child I didn't know why my mom never left the house. My childhood was an odd one. For several years we lived in an abandoned building that did not have running water. It was a very lonely time for me. I couldn't tell anyone and had no friends until the 7th grade. I've always felt like I never fit in with anyone. I think my childhood is part of the reason why.
I'm happy I'm able to talk about my childhood. I hid it for years as an adult. I'm proud of the things I've accomplished in my life. I finished school through grad school with high grades. Growing up very poor does not mean you can be successful.
I'm aiming for a successful weekend and a decent Friday at work today.
