I am not yet washed up

I am still awaiting when I will leave my job. I was told last year that my workplace (they sent me to see a doctor) who said that I was unfit for duties. Well really! I could do the job I just can’t pack endless bags, and as for events I have managed to attend them.

But its a sign that the place doesn’t want me anymore. Their doctor after one visit says unfit for duties, and they can’t find me another position within the organisation.

My GP and all of my specialists disagree they say that I am perfectly capable of doing my job and all that needs to be done is to make some allowances.

So what do you do? Well I can tell you that Centrelink won’t put me back on disability as I have worked, so they say I am fit.

I feel fit I know my limitations and can do my job. Look without being egotistical I am good at what I do. I have the most knowledge in the group I work in and I have had more years. But that accounts for nothing.

As it is I won’t even be getting a decent pay out because I am redundant not the job. It will be interesting to watch the space and see what they fill the position with. I have a high feeling that it won’t be someone who does my kind of work.

But this organisation doesn’t want me and this is a good way to get rid of me, its been fairly clear from the start that I wasn’t really welcomed back. I am a problem I don’t play political games. I am blunt and to the point. Some take this as rudeness. Some people have complained about me, but I haven’t seen the paper work on their grievance, it’s all people came up and said. Well to me that’s a bit load of cods wallop.  Put your name behind your complaint otherwise it shouldn’t be taken seriously. It should be considered gossip.

I have every intention of finding another job because I am not washed up I have so much to offer and I have done training in many different courses to pass on knowledge. Information to help with sexual health, Domestic Violence, healthy lifestyles, and living on a budget.

I want to know when I finish, but at the same time I am happy for it to drag out so I can pay the bills, do the school fees and keep my med bills in check. So keep your fingers crossed that I will get a job. A job that will allow me to share what I know, a job that will allow me to help my people. A job that is fulfilling.

Post Script…I now have an end date. But no job. I guess what I really am getting at is if you are somewhere and they don’t want you-move on. I know plenty of people with Cancer who like me continue and can work. Now comes the Challenge of finding that job.

Thank you
