Dona sent me a letter at 5:36pm yesterday evening. I am authorized to return to work WITHOUT RESTRICTIONS as of Wednesday, February 24.
She and Adam never intended to allow me to return to work on light duty. My cancer is so advanced that it is one step away from metastasizing throughout my body, but the ADJC Assistant Director and Superintendent don’t give a fuck about anything other than standard, uniform procedure. “Case by case basis,” my ass. Those people were never intending to work with me.
So. I’m returning to work on Wednesday, knowing fully well that I am not going to be able to teach…but even if I end up being the worst teacher that Adobe has ever seen (and yes, that’s the plan), at least I will still have my health insurance and will not face interruptions in my treatment, doctors, or medications. Any interruption in treatment lowers my chance of success, and that’s what I need to stay focused on. That is the ONLY thing that matters right now.
