    Cyberhugs to ya! Remember: When one door closes, another always opens up, and there is always sunshine after the rain! I'm saying a little prayer for you so when you wake up in the morning that booze isn't going to make you go "Ugh! What have I done to myself!" Keep the emesis basin next to your bed just in case.

    Congratulations on getting out of there, and on your extra week off. You deserve it- and take that severance pay- you earned every penny. Hope you are sucessful in your follow up on that situation however far you choose to go.

    It was their loss.

    Congratulations on standing up for what's right! New job-new day. Here's a quote from one of my favorite songwriter/performers:

    "just when you think that you've been gypped, the bearded lady comes and does a double back flip!"

    Any trauma will take time to heal. Get a full body massage. Go away for the weekend. Be good to yourself-you deserve it. Keep us posted.

    Congatulations and cheers!

    The best ever has happened to you, you are out of there before the you know what is going to hit the fan. Best of all, you have a back up plan, so you don't have to worry how you are going to pay the bills.
    Just make sure you keep your records, so if there is ever legal action taken against the agency, you have something to fall back on, our memories tend to fail us after a while. The best thing you can do for yourself, is to write everything you know for a fact (no speculations) down, place it in a closed envelope and mail it to yourself. When it arrives in the mail, don't open the envelope just save it for future reference. The postal date mark will serve as evidence that you wrote the document when you said you did. If things ever go to court you will have the back up of your own recollections when you need them (lawyers love you for doing this).
    I sincerely hope you will never need it, but you never know!

    Already doing OT on Sunday! At least it will make up for the severance pay I declined. I don't want their dirty money!!

    Feels good to be back at the VNA FT. Everyone gets along, and everyone works....hard. We're all on the same page.
