Too many losses in a short period of time.....
by Mary WD
On October 5, 2005 was the beginning of the end of what life was. This is the day we found out about my husband's cancer diagnosis. It was inoperable. That night I went to bed and couldn't stop crying. I couldn't sleep that night. I went into work and stood at the door of my boss's office. As soon as she looked up I burst into tears. This woman was my savior. To make a long story short, my husband of 22 years succumbed to his disease on February 15, 2007. My life as I knew it was forever gone. In December of that year, my biggest supporter resigned her position. I was devastated. But with all the changes going on I understood. Three months after she left the company hired the B***H from hell. Two months after she started I ended up on probation. Mind you I received a glowing review one month after my husband passed. In September of 2008 I was involved in a near fatal car accident with a drunk driver. The only thing that saved me was I was belted in. I received severe bruising but luckily no broken bones. But still I needed to contact my daughter as I was on my way to her house to pick her up. Of course, she was hysterical when I talked to her. But still I had to go to the hospital. By the time I got to the hospital the look on my daughter's face was pure fear. Anyway, when I called into work on Monday and informed my boss what happened she asked me if I could come into work the next day. All the bruising hadn't come out yet. I told this woman I could not. I was NOT released by the doctor. In fact I had to have surgery on my finger that I dislocated very badly. Almost one month to the day I was terminated from a company that I just loved working for. Now almost 4 years later I am still trying to find a job. Am I angry? Yes. That my husband didn't give up those damn cigarettes like I asked numerous times. I am also a former smoker. After what I saw do to my mother it was enough incentive to quit.....cold turkey. After all this time I just wished SOMETHING....anything would come my way to put a smile back on my face.
