I apologize for disappearing for so long, but my job took over and would not let go. It consumed every part of my life - so much so that my family was worried about me. I would have panic attacks on the way home. I would stay up most of the night on weekends just to stretch the time out longer.... thinking about Mondays would make me nauseous.
My boss was a nightmare. A tee-total beeotch. If I didn't do things HER way then it was completely wrong. Yes, I can take the blame for some things I was accused of, but instead of berating me and making feel like a dumb-ass, why couldn't she COACH? Or LEAD? Oh so much I could tell, but I won't. I don't want the chance for someone to stumble across this blog. Just know... she was the ab-so-lute worst boss I have EVER had.... the worst.
But good does come out of bad. I got another job. I started looking within two months of starting... yes, I knew that soon.
I am going back to the company I left, but on a new team and with a new boss. I have known my new boss for the past 4 years and really, really like him. I mean, hell, how can you not like a guy that is an Elvis impersonator?? HUH???
He has a sense of humor and understands mine. He worked his tail off to get me on his team. I will take what I learned from my job-from-hell and apply it to this one. I think it will help me tremendously.
I am sooooo relieved to be gone. I cannot begin to tell you the nightmare the past 7 months have been. I am taking the next couple of weeks to heal my self-esteem, my heart, and my confidence. All of it is battered and bruised.
My family has been so supportive and loving. During the worst of times they consoled, encouraged, and loved me... I am such a lucky girl!
So onward and upward! Maybe I can be "myself" again and get back to this blog. I miss you all so very much (if anyone still reads that is!)
Hugs... and thank you for your patience.
