I'm new here!
Hi, my name is tomatopelican3375, and I must apologize now for this ridiculous and lengthy introduction. It is … A LOT … Ok, so I'm here because I lost my Mother 4 years ago June 25th. Not only was she my biggest fan, she was also my very best friend. I lost my 15+year job while living through her final months of life . Oh yeah, within the year surrounding the loss of my Mother, I also lost my Step-Mother along with my Maternal Grandmother and Maternal Grandfather. Now my significant other of 10 years has left me because as he sees it, I refuse to go back to work and he chose to tell me this only 3 days before the 4 year anniversary of my Mothers death. I lost my employment back in April of 2018 and did gain new employment in August of 2018 all to be let go in February of 2019 due to the company choosing to take a different direction; no fault of my own. Another setback. I then applied for unemployment of which I received for maybe 1 & 1/2 years. Then most recent I excepted a job similar to what I had done at my ‘career’ job but rather one step up in the pecking order as I had been working for a wholesale distribution company and this new gig was working for a foreign-based manufacturing company. After only a short month into this new role my immediate supervisor and I decided to part ways as the opportunity was simply not a good fit for either of us. I should also mention that I spent the last year being diagnosed with Microscopic Colitis coupled with Celiac Disease. As if these new diagnoses weren’t enough to digest -no pun intended- I already suffered from asthma, anxiety, depression and also about a year agoI had been declared as postmenopausal (this was the only point of celebration and at least there is that!) by my OGYN who during the same appointment diagnosed me with Vaginal Atrophy. All with what was her last week at this facility as she was going to work elsewhere! How many ‘changes’ can one contend with all at once? I feel like I am going to loose my mind too before long yet I have lost nearly everything I’ve ever known already!
