I managed to delay you for a while but you have arrived to darken my doorstep.
It was great, the working life, I loved it, I really did! But when I got sick so suddenly and severely I had no option. I did everything I could to get out of the hospital and back to work as soon as I could, I clawed my way back over many, many months to working part time.
But it didn't work.
I tried it all. Working alternate days with a rest day in between. Lighter duties. Working in the mornings only. Working in the afternoons only. You tried to help me but nothing worked and I just got worse and worse. Then the other health issues got worse. I thought I'd be back after the operations, but I just couldn't get well enough again.
You did what you could, but you couldn't employ someone who simply wasn't well enough to do their job, or any other job. It was all over.
So, here you are. My ticket to unemployment. The end of my career.
