While I love you unconditionally for all the things you do for me, you sometimes let me down. I can’t hold anything against you though because nothing in life is perfect.
Dealing with a chronic illness has many pitfalls. I’ve stated before that I am lucky because I suffer from a mild form of the chronic illness I deal with. I have it a lot easier than most people with Cyclic Vomiting Syndrome. I don’t get sick as often as some people, but I still get sick at the most inconvenient moments. And it definitely effects my life. For instance, I just started working a new job last Thursday. In the week that I have worked there, I have missed one full shift and 3/4 of another shift. I was told this morning that if I continue to get sick regularly like this then I may be let go due to the fact that it is a small bakery and they simply don’t have the employees to have people call on sick all the time. I have prided myself at being reliable despite my illness and now I am looking at possibly getting fired because of my illness. I understand the circumstances behind it but the feelings that come along with being told that are incredibly unsettling.
So body, please give me a break. I really like this job and I’d love to stay there.
