I know that it has been awhile since I’ve had a post, but I have had numerous things going on over the last week. I think one of the biggest things happened last Friday. My daughter came home from work and asked me, “now mom if I tell you something you’re not going to get mad are you?” I told her that I couldn’t make any promises but I would do the best that I could do. She went on to tell me that one of the girls she works with (my daughter works with my husband at a sporting goods store) told her that Judy another woman that works there told her that I’m a drug addict! What the hell? For those of you just reading this for the first time, I suffer from Chronic Migraines after I had a plate put in my neck due to a car accident. I’ve been to Diamond Headache Clinic in Chicago (would not recommend to anyone), been to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota (they were wonderful, but couldn’t afford to keep driving out there), now I’m at the U of M in Michigan and they started out pretty good but I have like 6 doctors and my main doctor hasn’t been returning any phone calls. I’ve had botox, facet injections, and recently had my nerves cauterized on one side of my neck trying to get some control over them. I’ve never been on narcotics, hell I even tried accupuncture and meditation. I am at the ER sometimes twice a month because I can barely speak or move because the pain is so bad. Yes I do end up getting an injection, if that makes me a drug addict well than I guess I am. So for this lady to say I’m a drug addict really pissed me off.
The real kicker of the whole thing is that my husband was sitting there and said, “oh yeah I heard about that a couple weeks ago.” And I said “well did you say something to Judy?” Nope he sure didn’t. My name is getting ran through the mud by a moron you work with and you don’t say anything? What the hell?
So as any calm individual does I found her on Facebook and sent her a message, basically telling her I don’t appreciate her running her mouth about me, because she has no idea what I go through or even what I’m like. Within 5 minutes she called the boss, who then called my husband and a meeting was set for
Saturday morning. Judy wasn’t there, because they wanted to hear everyone’s story and then a decision would be made. No I wasn’t there because its not my job….
This Tuesday rolls around and Judy comes to work and threatens to quit and then decides she will stick it out, but the boss out her on probation and she was supposed to tell my family she was sorry for spreadig rumors about me. Has it happened it happened yet? Hell no. Am I still pissed? Yes, I’m mad as hell at my husband for still not saying something to her. He won’t lose his job, the least he could say us, “hey you know I don’t appreciate the things you’ve been saying about my wife.” Enough said.
So maybe I shouldn’t be upset with him, but I’m furious and it’s put this huge wedge between us.
On a positive note my 9 year old son has been working out with me at night and it’s been a lot of fun.
Am I blowing this out of proportion or do I have a right to be mad? There’s only 9 people.that work at this store and Judy only works 2 days a week.
