Good grief, the abuse you endure and still forge forward amazes me! How dare they question you, I just wonder if these people or person would jump out of bed to come to the aid of a student in need? I think NOT!
Do what you need to do to protect yourself, document everything, might be good to flip on a recorder the next time the addict word is directed at you!
Oh Fatherjohn...what can I say? You are being treated unfairly by people who do not understand the true meaning of the word "Addict". You of all people are farthest away from being an addict then anyone i have ever heard of. How dare they put this on you after all the good work you do... Please don't take it to heart, we know the truth as do you.
I am so sorry that this is happening to you.... I am thinking of you and hope this all works out.

This does not surprise me as you have already been down this road at least once that I know of with them over this same scenario except the wife's job was not an issue then lol. I guess I missed it, but was your wife on their payroll too? I ask, because of their position on her taking a job. What difference does that make, its none of their business, as I understood you were their employee not her.
You know its almost like the higher ups are playing a very sadistic game with you. Every so often they like to come in and light a fire under you. In turn when they do this you just push yourself even more, and they get you to prove to them one more time what more you are willing to sacrifice for them. Its a sick game. Its like they are determined to use you up and then eventually they will toss you aside. Thats called the corporate world. And its like a personal vendetta why would you want to stay there. Directors will come and go over the years there, that you know. There will always be another person for the young ones in the program to look up to, you are another number in the long list of employees.
You will not be young forever and soon your body will fail you because its worn out long before its time. Is that big corporate world worth that. Maybe its time you look at the price your family has paid for you to participate in this game. They have paid heavily.
You like the feeling that you are helping people and there are many, many ways out there to help people besides the drug & alcohol program you are working at. I am sure there are other programs to work in. You will always have the higher ups breathing down your neck in the working world, but this is a sick place you are at now.
Maybe its time to do what Pete did. He is a much better off as a person for getting away from the hassle. Pete's tone in his posts is so much calmer thab what they use to be, it was all caused by someone else pulling his strings. But only you can decide how much you are willing to pay to play in the game. I often wonder if a student isn't behind alot of this, they are the ones with you all the time.
Good morning *warm huggs* I hope you are having a decent morning. *hugg*
I simply cannot comprehend what you are going through. I wish I had more knowladge reguarding disibility rights. It all seems, so.... Like they have an alterior (sp?) motive of some kind?? Like your life is being made to fit into a catagory that only suites their needs? It is all so chaotic and confusing! Gosh, I wish more than anything that I could help somehow!!!! Do they have an consequences for their actions once this ficticious argument is found to be, well un-founded and frankly... preditory? Oh my goodnees, FJ! *WARM HUGGS*
FJ, I'm so sorry this has come up again. Everyone else has offered such fabulous words of wisdom , I can only echo them. I agree it sounds politically based. Someone wants your job, but how they can overlook your obvious committment and overtime put into your position, is beyond me.
Best of luck with that lawyer, I hate the politics and backstabbing that goes on with nearly every organisation I've been involved in. There always seems to be someone more interested in infighting than getting the job done. Power hungry, small minded, I don't know but you could do with out the stress! Best wishes, golitho
