No More Braless and Haggard Days!

braless Pictures, Images and Photos

Well my bra less and haggard days come to an end tomorrow. Remember I was talking about a certain doctor who seems to be 12 shy a dozen well I have fool proof of that now. He sent the Sheriff's Office a work status that I could work four hours a day with lots of restrictions. The Sheriff's Office decided hey sounds good let's get her back here never mind she is constant pain from her injury.

On one hand I look forward to returning to work since I had no intention of not working for several years to come but on the other hand I can not for the life of me figure how I will cope with four hours of not being able to rest or lay down. I guess by Monday afternoon at three I will have figured that concern out. If it were maybe one or two days a week I might not be so worried but it is five days a week and on those same days I will be doing two hours of therapy. Believe me those techs at therapy take their jobs very seriously and there is a full two hours of stressful excercise.

I talked to an attorney and she said this is what they call a forced back to work before the worker is completely healed. She said it is their way of either terminating you for not taking the part time offer or that you will be in such pain when you do work that you will quit. She also said a lot of employers will be so mean to someone when they come back that they just quit. I honestly don't think that the Sheriff's department where I work would sink that low and if they do Ms. Pearl will rear her ugly head and then only God knows what will take place then.

Gretchen came over last night to cheer me up and eat some Bananna Pudding Ice Cream and to see how she could help me get ready to return to work. Well we decided I should try on my uniforms since I have been complaining about gaining weight since my fall. Yep I was right about that....only one pair of pants fit me and they are tight. Good grief!!!! Give me another scoop of that ice cream.

It is always fun to here stories about her acting, writing and school days. She went to college in Boston and Europe. One year in college she lived in a castle that was owned by the school. It was where the students stayed and even had a mote. Can you imagine living in a castle while in college. It was in a small village right out of Amsterdam. They closed the castle down on weekends so all the students traveled the country until back to classes on Mondays.

She loves coming over here and sitting on my porch and us share stories. I know I love it even more because what a delightful young lady to have for a friend and neighbor. Plus she encourages me on my writing and we talk about ways to help each other. I promised her even though I will be working again I will do my best to write every day.

I had to laugh at her last night because she did a few skits for me from her screen play she is writing. Also she wanted to talk about us putting in a small garden here just for the two of us. She wants to do it in pots. I think this young lady is good for me. Only thing is she still has her mind set on buying some fainting goats for us to walk around with. hahaha

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend.

Love to all

Maggie

I am so sorry that you have to go back before you are ready and still in so much pain!

Mostly I am sorry you have to start wearing a bra again!!! No bueno.

I hope you do ok with it. You will be in my prayers.

Good luck Maggie and I hope the pain will be tolerable and you can show everyone that they can't beat you down! I'll keep you in my prayers and I bet you'll have some good, funny stories to tell us...or maybe Ms. Pearl will!

Kim said...

Sorry to hear they are pushing you too soon. God help them if Ms. Pearl needs to appear. I hope it's not as bad as you fear.
I did giggle about trying on the uniform and then having more ice cream. Lol
Hugs, Kim

I hope all works out for you Maggie...have a great rest of the weekend....

Tracy said...

oh Maggie,
I am so sorry and how heartbreaking to be forced to go back before you are ready! I think you need to start documenting everything as well as what happens when you head back to work, what is being said, etc...
You will be in my prayers...
PS: i love love LOVE the cartoon...that is hysterical!

LuLu Kellogg said...

I am keeping my fingers crossed that everything will go well when you go back Sweets!

I am trying to play Blog catch up now that I am back from CA! I missed you and Ms. Pearl!

Love,
LuLu~*xoxo

Susie Swanson said...

Hope everything works out for you and I love the cartoon. Your blog is wonderful! Thanks Susie

Rae said...

I can't imagine all the worry you must have right now thinking about your return to work. Maybe it will be easier that you expect - at least you can hope for that. Wishing you the best. I hope Monday goes smoothly.

Nezzy said...

Sweetie, I'm so sorry there pushin' you into work while your still in so much pain. Know I'll be prayin' for ya girl!

God bless and I pray that your pain eases up for the occasion!!!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Well, how much walking around can you do with the goats if they faint, Maggie? : ) I'm sorry to hear this is happening, but I think it happens in all States. I think it gets to a point where you would just have to go out disability. Maybe you could do your therapy after work; hopefully that would keep you not in twice as much pain at work.

Loved the cartoon!

~ Regan said...

You poor soul!! I am going to be hoping and praying that come Monday, you are excited and ready to go, and that your employers treat you well. This is crazy! I just hope you don't hurt yourself any worse-

Good luck, I will be checking in again soon to see how it went. Until then, good friend, enjoy that ice cream! :)

Donna said...

It's rotten that you have to go back to work before you are able! I hope you feel better soon and that your therapy works it's magic! Glad you saw a lawyer, sometimes they are the only people that can help. Sending hugs...D

Sue said...

Can't believe you're going back to work. If they make it hard on you, I hope Miss Pearl DOES rear her ugly head.

As for your friend, you really go lucky the day she moved in...and she got lucky, too!

=)

Whimsey Creations said...

Hey Maggie - I say go back to work NOT wearing a bra - that will fix 'em! LOL Seriously though I hope you do well and it works out better than you are thinking it will. As for the fainting goats, oh Maggie, you have me insprired to make another folk art doll. Hmmmmm never know what might show up in your mailbox one of these days!

shawkl said...

Stay strong! Walk slowly and sit often. Keep smiling...it will make them wonder! Sending hugs and positive karma!

Maggie, I do believe Ms Pearl should be close by during your first week back at work.
She'll give that extra support that'll help you through the hours.
Hugs,
Gerry
You'll be on my mind with Great thoughts for your week.

Olga said...

So sorry that you are rushed back to work. I sincerely hope all works out and that there is no nefarious motive behind it, but it does seem suspicious. The doctor works for the sheriif department?
It is wonderful, though, that you have a young friend nearby. Stay strong.

Pam said...

Good grief! This is not surprising with the way things are going today. Here's hoping the therapy does its thing and the pain subsides soon. I'd have another bowl of ice cream too! Good luck!

A Tale of Two Cities said...

Oh Maggie, it doesn't seem right--it doesn't seem fair, but ready or not, off to work you go! I hope it goes much better than you are expecting.
Keep us posted!

Julia said...

Maggy, I hope that things will work out for you and that you will soon be pain free. I can't for the life of me see how they can force you back to work while you are in such pain still. If anyone can surmount this, you are the one, you have a lot of inner strength.

I just got back home from my weekend from the fiber artists retreat and had a great time and the highlight of my trip was that I ran into my blogger friend, Kim of Millie's Mat,quite by accident at Deane Fitzpatrick's shop in Amherst N.S. It was awesome to see her and we hugged. I was so delighted. JB

CHERI said...

Hi, Maggie. Thanks SO much for coming by my blog for a visit. I really appreciated your comment. Come back again, please. Sounds like you have been going through a rough time. I'll have to read through some of your posts to see if I can find out just what's been wrong. Sure hope you can ease back into work and that they will treat you kindly. I'm so sorry this is happening to you. Good luck this week and keep the faith:)

Firecracker Kid said...

Oh my, what a world we live in. Your lawyer is right, that's what employers do to keep from paying. Sad, but true. I'll be thinking of you and hoping for the best. Don't get too stressed sweety.
Hugs~Carol

Andrea said...

Praying Ms. Pearl behaves herself, but more than that I am praying GOD goes before you and prepares the way....binding up the enemy and blessing you with exactly what you need!
LOVE YOU,
andrea

Julie Harward said...

Sorry you have to go back...I wouldn't wear a bra..let them think your knees have gone bad too! ;D

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Hi Mags:
Now I'll have something to worry about this week. I hope you don't end up on the floor somewhere that they have to call the paramedics to get you up and out and back home.

I'll be looking for updates, girlfriend. Do they have uniforms with elastic in the waistband? ;-)

xoxo

I love the idea of walking with the fainting goats!! Sounds like your friend is very good for you... and, you for her. I hope your work week will go well and that your continued healing will be swift. Blessings ~ Tanna

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Maggie, I've tried to, but couldn't, find a way to send an e-mail to thank you so much for the kind words and encouragement you left on my blog. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Blessings ~ Tanna

Grandma Yellow Hair said...

LOL I said my prayers this morning and of course I thanked God for all of you and now I am going to see if I can fit into this uniform.
No Donna they don't have elastic I may be sending them to you..haha
Dang Julie I nearly fell out of my chair reading your comment ...I think I should do that it just may get me home sooner
Love to all of you
Maggie

Debbie said...

I am thinking those fainting goats are exactly what you need to bring a smile to your face:)

Marydon said...

Sweet Maggie, I am so sorry they have no consideration for you or your pain ... muchless anyone else. I pray you will be fine, the pain will not overtake you & that nothing else happens to you ... please take care of yourself. I'd be devastated if anything else happens to you.

Hugs of love & lots of prayers, sweetie.
Marydon

Tam said...

Maggie like all of your other friends I am worried that this is not good for you but I can see that you have no choice but to do what they ask
There has to be a way to get you help!
You are in my daily thoughts and prayers. I think of you so often that I am beginning to think of you as a sister. lol Hope you don't mind
I think if I remember you never had a sister so I guess you have one now
Always your friend
Tam
