I’m still in shock.

Haven’t posted in the longest, have I?  I hand-wrote a too lengthy explanation.  Here’s why I haven’t blogged lately, or wanted to:

On Thursday I was fired from my job.  I fell asleep at work a few weeks ago.  Several times I’ve blogged about my tinnitus and sleep apnea.  I sought help but the CPAP machine has been such torture that I think it’s done more harm than good.

I’m going to seek legal counsel, since it didn’t seem that management or human resources took account of my diagnosed medical condition.  In hindsight, I should have heeded several co-workers’ advice and looked into going on disability.

But, my parents didn’t really raise us to think that way.  And my chronic exhaustion certainly hasn’t help my strategic thinking.  You’ve noticed how my blogging has dropped in quality as well as quantity, I’m sure.

Anyway, you see why I’ve been away lately.  Hopefully you’re all doing much better than your host.

Oh, and sorry for an “I” heavy post.

    So sorry to hear of this. You have been there for a long time and very crappy to get the axe for what’s clearly a medical condition. Hang in there.

      Thanks, Billy. Even if I can’t get back to the DOE, I’ll be able to do nuclear outages once I get back in good shape and, hopefully, the apnea is under control.

      Of course, that biz isn’t nearly as good as it used to be, the pension will be gone, and if benefits exist they’ll be paltry.

      OTOH, there’ll be plenty of time for writing.

    Crap, so sorry to hear about this! (I have been away from the site for several days.) Worme has represented Mr. Competent to me since the Fukushima disaster, and I can’t really even comprehend this.WIsh you could come over here and take over Tepco.

    You’re gonna get through this for sure. Whatever it is, it’ll turn out to be something better on the other side.
