Had my doctors appointment today and he released me back to work. So I called work, told them I have the letter.
Apparently, they have to clear me through corporate, so I do not know when I will actually return to work. How cool is that?
Not very. Until now, I have been on short-term disability...but as of tomorrow, that will no longer be true.
And I have no clue where I stand. Will it be a day? 2 days? A week? When do I go back?
On the dark side, my shoulder still does hurt and twinge. But from a realistic point of view, simple economics state that even if I had been forced to lie to the doctor, I would have seriously considered it just to get back to work. Not that I want to.
I still heartily resent the betrayal. I have worked my butt off for that company and done way more than my share. But when I needed help they extended a giant double middle finger to me.
Because I am me, I will still be one of the best, if not clearly the best, employees they have.
But you can rest assured that as long as I work there, I will no longer be the go-to guy who voluntarily does the dirty jobs nobody else wants to do. I will return to being that guy when I am at a place that deserves it and reciprocates.
On the topic of which, I sent out a couple resumes today to jobs that intrigue me and one already called me, which I am excited about. Wish me luck.
Oh, and...happy December
Love and resist - This is going to be a raw post, because the mood here in and around Portland is raw. Bear with me. I have to get this out. How are you? has become a loaded...
