Ugh. Can't even believe this.
I can't believe I'm having hassles with getting 2 five minute restroom breaks at work. I've worked at this job for 4 months now. I'm so frustrated we're STILL having to talk about the "schedule" and one of the staff members who is supposed to cover for me is so @#$#%^ rude about it! And insultingly, she keeps telling me she "understands" because her "mom had IC and it was terrible", right after she says & does rude things.
Decided today I'm out of patience and reported today's harassment to our supervisor and the union. I hope they can get some resolution on this. Thank God I have a union to appeal to for help.
My supervisor has been very complimentary of my work, and her supervisors and every consultant we've had visiting us has said I'm doing a great job, so hopefully that will count more than this frustration!!!Kadi

wow, people can be such Jerks. It is unfortunate, but our society( the healthy ones) does not accept chronically ILL people and are not empathetic nor understanding.It is really sad, but sometimes it takes a rude person like that to experience what your going though to be able to actually understand it. Keep your chin up and do not waste time feeling upset over people like that, you cannot change them anyhow.
