(16-02-20) Going Back To Work

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.

I was diagnosed with Stage 3C Invasive Breast Cancer in October/November, 2015. This blog is my way to process my experience and allow my loved ones to have ongoing updates about my journey.

  1. …Once we get you back through the gate “they” will have their hands full dealing with it because you have a “shit ton” of supporters that will see to it that you are safe and cared for! There is no compassion or empathy from any administrative part of that facility…..we, the “low life teachers and staff” have your six, m’am!
