Thanks for your thoughts and advice everyone. I just talked to my boss again and she says my hours are changing and is not even willing to listen to the other commitments I have going on outside of work. We all work but we all also have a personal life to deal with and she just isn't willing to listen to the fact that I take care of my sister's kids right now after I get off from my job at 1:30pm and they go with me to my second job after I get them from school. My boss has been aware forever of what my life revolves around and the fact I have to have a second job to make ends meet but she isn't listening. On one good note, I did get the doctors return to work and my boss has that so I can go back to work tomorrow. I did warn my boss that I wouldn't be up to full speed but will be there and ready to work. Whatever happened to compassion and caring and sympathy. It is not my fault I got sick (yeh, like I wanted to miss work and stay at home camped out on my bathroom floor for 3 days - NOT). I just wish I worked with people like you all here who understand feelings. I understand there has to be rules and protocols and they need to be followed but can't they be followed with some understanding and compassion. I'm not asking for "oh poor you" or anything like that but a little caring would be nice. I guess that is too much to ask for from my boss. Okay, done venting again.
Justbreath: I also have a "blankie" made by my Grandma and use it when I am sick or needing comfort from the outside world (which is most days). It is well worn but still holding strong.
LET US BE GRATEFUL TO PEOPLE WHO MAKE US HAPPY.
