“There Will Be No Work For You”

Just a personal post that comes from a pit of deep frustration and aggravation.

My 6 months of Short Term Disability had just come to a close with my group benefits and I was hopeful to return to work on Monday. Yet, only a few days ago my employer informed me that they have found no work suitable for me due to my limitations and that I’m basically on my own.

I will be receiving no payout. No severance. No money to tide me over until I start school in September. Just a “tough luck” and “you’re outta here”, not literally but that’s how it felt.

The worst part is the way they’ve been treating me as if I was dismissed or fired. I tried to have my brother grab my toolbox since he works there, and they sent a supervisor out to his vehicle with him to retrieve it. They want to check it before I pick it up to make sure that I’m not stealing company equipment.

I suppose I’ll be applying for unemployment benefits now until I can find part-time work for September. It’s really disheartening and it’s kind of crushed me emotionally the past few days. I hate feeling disabled and yet, I know that I’ve come so far in my recovery, but I’m considered a liability now.

I’m very angry with my company…

I suppose I’ll try to contact a lawyer to make sure they can legally just brush me aside like that and hope that I resign.

I can’t wait for my life to get back to something more normal where I feel useful again.
