A Sunflower’s Sunshine

What a place and time it’s been for me and in such a few short days, too and boy were they frightening to say the least.I can’t recount the terrifying things that happened at work and despite the reopening of Texas, my home state, know that work has become more chaotic as customers are just as bad as before.

And the fact that a lot of stores like Walmart are closed at certain times that drives us to be extremely busy and us, not having enough people to work, but all in all, work is just that and people will always be insufferable. It’s as if they don’t know what retail is and what it entails, but whatever. I didn’t note that I have

DDD (Degenerative disc disease): is an age-related condition that happens when one or more of the discs between the vertebrae of the spinal column deteriorates or breaks down, leading to pain. There may be weakness, numbness, and pain that radiates down the leg.


Sciatica: is a common type of pain affecting the sciatic nerve, a large nerve extending from the lower back down the back of each leg.

Somehow something happened at work, and I got very weak in my arms and had to be carted off to the hospital but luckily, since my company is owned by employees, they truly look after us. Like all my medical bills will be paid by them and I won’t get in trouble because it happened on their watch and I won’t lose my hours at all. WinCo foods gives me hope and happiness in that employer should always cares about their employees, always.

I got so relieved when my heart was fine, and looked normal but at this point, I don’t know what more to do with me, as I’ve had injections in my back and have a pain doctor but even if they don’t have anyway to give me pain medicine but that’s not what I want. I don’t want my symptoms to be merely masked but more and if I continue to lose weight, it should help but maybe it gets worse before it gets better, right?

Therapy isĀ  going better.
I’m doing better with no spending and coming up with a budget to put me on. Things have to get worse to get better. They always do. And so with that, my relationship is better now with my husband, Jose and being back at work fills me with hope to truly be functional.

To truly be that.

I’m sorry to hear that, but it’s good to know your company is taking care of you. & Yeah, people who don’t work retail or even some who do will never understand or care about how they treat those who do, and it’s sad. I feel like it should be a requirement that people work retail at least once in their lives so they would understand, but sadly it wouldn’t help some people.
