I just need to vent for a few.
 
For 1 1/2 yrs I have worked my butt off at work.  I have had major kidney and heart issues throught out with only missing 2 days after a surgery I had last december.  I get procedures done for pain control in series of 3 or 6 one every monday.  I'm on the not having them cycle right now but feel I might need to start again soon.  I had a wonderful senior supervisor who let me still get my hours in if I had to take Mondays off.
 
Well with all the hard work I have done I have been promoted.  Great I want the more money and the recognition of what I have done. 
 
The problem my hours will change.  I will have to work monday thru friday 8 to 8:30.  I have been on 12 hour shifts which means I only worked 14 days out of the month.  I think I really need my procedures again, but I don't know my new supervisor yet.  Is he going to be understanding?
 
I realize now I don't have to work my butt off physically anylonger.  I will be in an office running my department.  So the wear and tear on the body will be less.  I'm just worried I have to start my new position with new people on Tuesday.
 
Just alittle overwhelmed right now....  and feeling the pain creep back in

Congrats about the promotion! I really am with your thoughts...I pray that you will get a supervisor that will be just as understanding. Do you have a FMLA? It entitles you up to 12 weeks of unpaid time off without the fear of getting introuble with your boss. It protects you. I use it intermittently when I have to get my chemo, shots, or when I just can't make it into work. There is so much more I want to say but everytime I start to type it, my memory decides to take a break so I can't seem to remember what I was begining to say. Once again Congrats and let us know how the promotion is! I pray it will be awsome mentally and physically!

Amy I have throught about FMLA but I kinda want to wait to use it. There will come a day where I will really need it. If you get the approval is it for 12 consective weeks or time off adding to 12 weeks. The last go around I should of had FMLA for I was having procedures for 9 weeks in a row. Some went bad and really hurt for 24 hours and had to suffer through work on the day after.

I worked so very hard for the promotion and was shocked I got it but I think it will lessen the stress mentally and physically. Whew man o man its going to be like taking a vacation!

The FMLA is up to 12 weeks off. I have been using it since Janurary and still have about 9 weeks left. It is time off adding to 12 weeks! I think you can get it every year as song as you get approved, which I am sure you will!

Laurie,

Congratulations on your promotion!!! Your company must see how strong you are and what a fighter you are to do such a good job and manage your health problems. I can't imagine working 12 hour days and doing it so well that I earned a promotion. You are an inspiration to all of us.

Thank you Elizabeth I would have to give all the credit to my pain management doctor.  If its wasn't for his office I would be sitting at home crying all day.
 
I had my first day yesterday and I was right.  All I do it make sure everyone else does their job.  Kinda weird I'm usually the one working my butt off.  I still can't seem to NOT get in the middle of this work and stack boxes for shipment.  One good thing I know all New Releases and what the street dates are..lol
 
We make all the movie discs for walmart, target, netflicks and blockbuster.  Plus about 1000 other companies.
 
But thank you all for the congrates.  I will always stay humble and not turn into a pain in the butt like some other supervisors are

Okay Laurie...Time for an update. How is the job? How is supervising? Also, have you gotten a chance to get the FML started? What did your job say about it?

I've been AWOL on the forums lately. The new position has taken some long hours to get my ducks in a row.  Two days last week I put in 14 hour days.  Overtimes nice but I don't need the money that bad... smhair
 
My new supervisor is nicer then the last so it won't be an issue to have my procedures done in the future.  He said I would just move my hours around.  So I won't need the FML yet but will have to be used sometime in the future.  As we all know most our conditions can get worse or will progress over time.
 
But thank you for asking about whats going on.  Its usually me asking for updates... yeah
 
How are you feeling?
