I'm really going through it y'all.................

The 19th was my blogaverssary. One year of this blog thang!!!! I had it all planned out. I was going to write a lil sumthing about my blog inspiration(around the way girl) she no longer blogs!!! I was going to throw a lil shot out to my very 1st comment from "humanity critic" I was like "royalty" LOL....Then there are the bloggers who have been with me from the start. Ms. Nikki over at infinite ink, Rhonda, Schatzi, Ms Tikki(youtoldharpotabeatme).

My new blog friends as well. You all have helped me through some tough times. I appreciate all the laughter and good solid advice!!!!! You all just don't know how much I appreciate all the advice/comments!!!! You all have got me through some tough times!!!!!! THANKS!!!!!

I was recently suspended from my job without pay. This is the 2nd week!!!! I attempted to hel someone out and it turned bad!!! REALLY BAD!!!!!

I am really going through it in a bad way!!!!! I can't stop crying!!!!!

FIRST: I feel bad because "bosslady" was suspended too!!!!

SECOND: I can't afford 2 weeks without pay

THIRD: I'M AFRAID!!!! my job has been the one constant thing in my life for the past 7 years!!!!! Through my seperation with my ex-husband. The divorce, my youngest son getting diagnosed with a seizure disorder and the meds giving him horrible side effects, my dad passing away, my grandma passing, my bad breakup with the LIAR............all the trials of being a single momma..through all this the one thing I could count on was my job!!!!! I knew that I was respected there as well as needed. I knew that no matter what was going on in my personal life, my job was for sure!!!! Now it's not!!!!

They are "investigating"!!!!! I told the truth and nothing but the truth. I know what I did was wrong........I was just helping out someone in need...............a simple note!!!!!

I can't stop the tears!!!! I SCARED!!!! I know I can find another job but starting over S.U.C.K.S.

I know that this is where my faith steps in................God has brought me through soooooo much! I know he will not let me down now!!!!! I'm sure of that!!!!! I just hate waiting for them to say "Dee you are fired"


I know me and my kids will eat................I know we will have a roof over our heads but everything else is unknown!!!!!!

Y'all pray for me!!!!!!!!

I'm so sorry that you're going through a rough patch, Dee. But God hears our prayers. He may not come when you want him, but he's always on time. And he will be there for you, as will your friends and family. Just believe.

Dee -- I'm sorry this is happening boo. I'm praying for you and your boys. I know you have faith and at a time like this you have to allow your faith to outweigh the fear. Faith and fear cannot exist in the same place. I know the unknown is scary but this could turn out to be a good thing. All things work together for those that love God. Luckily, in your profession you won't have a problem finding another job -- a better one! You never now. Be blessed.

@closet: that didn't sound like a plea for business. even if you're not barred ... good legal advice is always helpful.

I wish you the best, but you already know you and yo kids gone be aiight, Mamma gone do what Mamma gotta do.

I know how you feel about the constant thing. I never look at jobs as constant, cause they can always be taken, unless you are self-employed. Otherwise you really have no control.

My constant is my son, without him, I wouldn't know what to do.

I know you're scared, no one wants to hear those words.

Just start preparing for the worst.

Proper Preparation Prevents Poor Performance.

Yes starting over sucks, but somethings happen for may be time to move on.

Things can always be worst, as someone told me.

Dang girl...I disappear for a minute and all hell breaks loose...

Every little prayer works. Light a white candle to attract positive energy. Light a black candle to keep negative energy at bay. Those glass novena candles you find at the .99 cent store will do. I will send blessings your way in hopes that this situation finds a positive resolution in your favor.

Blessed be!

Dee, you are continuously in my prayers. You have to hold on to your faith.
You say: "I can't manage" God says: I will supply all your needs (Philippians 4:19)
You say: "I'm afraid" God says: I have not given you a spirit of fear (II Timothy 1:7)
You say: "I'm worried" God says: Cast all your cares on ME (I Peter 5:7)
Everything will be ok. Hang in there.

I've been readin your page for a while, never commented but happy bloggaversary. Although I don't know you, the first thing that came to mind was when you mentioned all of the negatives that have occured in your life while you were at this job: divorce, the deaths,your sons health... Perhaps finding a new one will signify new beginnings in your life that will be connected to even better times! Although I am fighting my own pessimism these days, I too think you'll be fine. This may really be the beginning of something beautiful and fabulous. I know it's the transitional moment that is scarry and painful. Keep your head up!

Oh DEE I am so sorry, I was wondering where you were you know. All you can really do is hang onto that faith and God won't let you down.

"All things are working for you, even things you can't see. His ways are so beyond you. So you pray that he would, let it be for your good, just rest and just believe" (paraphrase)

It will work itself out. I will pray for you hun.

I hate employment law, but I am barred in Ca. and I do handle Civil Rights in Employmemt and Education. If you think it might be discrimination, retaliation or something shady, hit me up.

Also I know employers will do that to protect themselves from future suit. If they try to interview you again I advise you to speak only with an attorney.
I'm also praying for you I know God will work it out.

Girl I knew something wasnt right. I am so sorry. I will pray for you but know he has a plan - and it might not be easy to see or even liked but needless to say a plan.

You are a STRONG woman and you WILL get through this!

I come through from time to time and I just heard about what is going on with you! *Shaking head* I agree with everyone else.... it is awful but it's just like life to close one door and make you think it's going to stay closed only to open better one. I pray that happens for you.

As for what is going on at your job - it's not clear what happened but I agree with Call2Arms. They do that to try to guard themselves from a law suit. So the next time you talk to them about ANYTHING make sure it's in person and PURPOSELY pull out a pen and a pad and take notes on who said what and when. Keep a log and don't sign anything that looks remotely like a full admission to anything if they do not allow you to write down your side of the story FIRST. They'll usually say that they want you to sign it as an acknowledgment but a signature actually can mean consent in some situations. Also, the newest thing that employers will do is to let you stay in your job but slowly push you out of your role and into something more demeaning in hopes that you quit (so you won't get unemployment). If you take notes and in particularly if you're one of very few of the minorities there, you can use that to prove that they created a hostile work environment. That way, not only will the EEOC be all over them but any lawyer you see will think it's a case worth taking! That is, if you have to go there. Hopefully your past record will speak for you more than one incident!

(*Blush!*) I guess you can tell that I've been through it... and I have. Just like you'll go straight through it too.... because God ALWAYS provides. (*smile*) Stay well Dee!

Wow Dee like some of the others said I'm gone for a spell and all Hell breaks loose. You will get another job. Some times when things like this happen it opens the door for better.

Sending up prayers!
