Not Exactly In The Gutter

Another spent gas tank down the drain.
A thirty minute interview after a ninety minute one way drive, only to come out defeated.
What’s the continuous point?

My eyes burn from the clouded day light.
My Colitis is pushing my insides forward then backward causing frequent diarrhea and lightening pain.
But, why does any of this matter?
I find myself Unemployed for the first time in 4 years.

It wasn’t supposed to be like this
(It never is. is it?)

I had a new job at the current Community College I was working at.
I had 8 weeks of Summer Employment and then 6 weeks in the Fall of 2014.

But, after my body giving up on me this past April, my former Boss decided to spread discrimination and I lost everything.
*Being in the hospital is called ‘unreliable.’
(I have filed a Discrimination Case against my former Boss. So far, my Case is crawling).

I was then hired at a Private Institution(College Level), but HR failed to complete my paperwork on time, therefore resulting in me losing my Summer Course and now having to wait another 7 weeks for HR Clearance.

But, let’s get real.
My former Boss at the Community College lied to my face.
She informed me she wrote a positive release form so I could teach in my new Department, when in realty she coiled around the Employment Manager and in writing stated,
“Unreliable due to my hospital stays, therefore Unable to Rehire for her Department.”
The Employment Manager decided to make my Release Forms universal WITHOUT making any inquiries regarding my situation.

So yeah, Discrimination Case is necessary.
How dare we, the sick have to live like this.
I’m being put in the ground before any possibility of success in my existence.

But, when do we give up the fight?

“Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.” Dylan Thomas
