First, my MRI results revealed three new tumors around 3cm in size each. I'm a neurofibromatosis patient for eight years now and had two operations. For four years, I had one tumor and I was able to keep it small so it was alarming to get three new ones all of a sudden. I was so scared I started researching and now I'm trying my best to control my appetite, get regular walks and eat healthy meals.
Second, work has been crazy busy and overwhelming. Someone was claiming he paid me for the shares but didn't sign any forms. I checked my records, did a cash count and it matched. Then he came back to me and changed his claims. Luckily, he was yelling and someone was sitting behind me and heard everything he said.
The third was the complaint about me delaying their request (which is not part of my job by the way) when they can clearly see how I've been running around for the past weeks due to the events. I was actually yelled at inside the office full of faculty and students for something that isn't even my job to begin with.
Obviously, the people I'm working with are consumed by their own needs and quite sensitive. Since then, I've been going out for walks during lunch time and being formal dealing with them to avoid misunderstandings. I think it's better that way since I can establish the Chinese wall without them being able to make up stories.
It's been almost two years since they gang up on me I almost forgot what they did and started feeling comfortable around them. I guess two weeks of bad luck has reminded me to restrict personal attachments with them and care for myself more; that I should grow up and start acting up fit for my age. I'm not being bitter. I just can't afford to forget how it was like and what I learned from it so I can keep the same thing from happening again.
So maybe what she said was right but I think I'll take it positively and see it as a year full of learning instead.
