Not a quitter

by Connie

Helping people has always been my passion. I was a school nursing assistance, later a medical assistant, and finally earned my Bachelors for Health Care Administration. It was rough growing up, but I had parents who loved me. My passion would be working with Hospice. After getting me and my children out of a verbal, alcoholic relationship, one of my children passed away. It tore me to pieces. He passed from a backway drive-over, with me being the driver. It took me years to get my life somewhat back. I have worked for a Physician Service for over a year now. I used to love my job, but then my manager found out that I was graduating from the schooling that is required for her job. She has nitpicked at everything and written me up with no verbal warnings. She hopes that I would quit. But no, I'm not a quitter. I'm standing up for myself and what I feel is wrongly done to me. I cry a lot when I leave work, but I won't quit.
