Nervous About Going Back To Work

January 7, 2007 at 2:08 am


I’ve been out of work since 4/1/05. Now I have to go back to work by 5/1/07 or I lose my health benefits (no choice). Trying to get my union representative to talk to the HR Director on what I can or cannot do ASAP. Then I have to go to my doctor’s for a permission slip to clear my status for work. My arms are about 80% back to normal but I can’t drive yet. Have to learn how to take public transportation. After 19 years of doing the same lovable job, I wipe the slate clean and prepare myself for another title to add to my belt. I’ve come a long way since day 1. On a scale of 1-10 from the GBS illness, I rated a 9.5! Take a deep breath and move one foot foward and don’t look back. Going back to the rat race is another part of living in the real world. You can rest all you want when your six feet under or cremeated but I choose to live.
