Please help me I'm getting sick of my life. :''( Here my story...
I work for a kroger company and they are trying to get rid of me and I'm back out on medical leave.
I had fell in the produce dept. While getting onions out of a shopping cart and when I bent back down I couldn't get back up. I fell on the floor while screaming for the manager to come. I was told he had to fill out an first response report and make copies, while I'm in pain he asked me can I work or do I need to go too the hosptial. I told him duh :jawdrop: I need to go to the ER room I can't move you dummy!!! :O He called 911 which didn't take long fire station is right in front of our store, I sat in a chair waiting. I had other employees come up to me and asked what happen, I told them they all think I done it on purpose and I wanted to go home. This all happened around 9am on a Monday morning and I was sent to the ER at 11am while waiting for my work to send off first response report.
They said it would take a whle until I could see an WC doctor. Yeah it took them a week before I could see an WC doctor.
I found out I had an Herinated Disc at L-5 and S-1 and a pinched nerve on top of that. I had all the shots I can get and nothing takes my pain away! I had 6 shots of ESI, I had 2 shots of SI and FJI, Trigger Injections, Pain Blocks, and I can't stand it.
Back at work all the employees look at me with dump founded looks like what is she doing here. They don't talk with anymore like they use to. Most of them are thinking wow she can work but she's on WC and collection lots of money, but that's not true I'm not collection money and it is not large sums of money. I'm getting some money but not enough to pay my bills. All the appts and visits, meds, shots, anything is paid by Workers comp.
Now, I'm out of work with my left hand. I just recently had surgery to clean my bones and ligments which was torn. At this moment I can type, pick up medium things, carry stuff, but I can't pull, bend my wrist, or push anything with it yet. My boss said I couldn't come back to work unless I'm 100% better. lol I asked him could I do something else in the store he told me no and go home! End of story he says, but I noticed their was another employee working with her arm in a cast, she was working why couldn't I? Our Store Manager is a jerk!!! I would say Dumm *ss I can do that can't I?
I hate living my life! ~X( I get up in pain, stay in pain all day can't figure out what pain meds work and how much can I take to make the pain go away? I've taken two Neurontin and I still have pain in my back, but I feel so stupid because I'm taken all of this medication and I'm young. Why me? I cry all the time while I'm by myself so folks don't know. I'm not able to get housework done or do the simplelist things.
Well I'm sorry I wrote so much.
I just need someone to talk to who is in the same place as I?
