Hey Penguin!

i actually told my boss who is my good friend...also weird. i sort of work in a weird place and she thought it was mean but didnt really say anything. my fianccee is so upset and wants me to go to the director but i feel like i should confront her directly.

hope you are doing better than me! also we are getting oru dog tommorow so that should cheer me up!

I definately feel you should say something to them. I mean what the heck is wrong with people?!!!! What part of that is funny. Tell her if she thinks it's so funny that you would love to show her just how funny it is and cough all over her and leave your snotty, infected tissues all over her personal things!!

This is really just one of the rudest, dumbest things I've ever heard. It's as if they are 5 years old and don't have a brain between them! Sorry, I'm just really mad for you and feel bad that you're sick because of these losers.

First off the only weird thing from my perspective is involving the child!

That though is said in the context of I don't think many things like this are FUNNY....

Stag parties? Hen nights? need I go on?

I can understand you not wanting to make a huge fuss and equally understand why you are so upset.

Perhaps working with children is rubbing off on them?

I'd really suggest talking to them. Make a cup of tea or similar for them and go over Explain its not funny and you do not appreciate it and involving the child was professional misconduct and if they were not friends you would have no hesitiation going to the supervisor.

After they understand or not take out a bottle of laxative with a few removed and tell them they just drank enough to have them on the loo all day.

Let this sink in... let a bit of pschology make them start to feel the effects and then say how this isn't funny is it? but luckily you were not immature and stupid enough to put laxatives in their tea!

maybe this will diffuse the situation without recriminations, get them to see the point and apologise!

I can not believe that someone like that is allowed to work with children. Frankly this person needs to lose their job IMHO. You definately need to let your supervisor know, but I would do it in Wed. after taking 2 days of sick time. I would report directly to the supervisor what made you sick when you call in Monday. Your 'freind' should cover your work for those two days. And go to anything that involves this person on a social level, never in a million years would I ever do that. How could you trust this person. As to the no lock on your door, well I would insist on one before I stepped back in that facility and I would make it very clear why.

I thought about taking a day off but then the kids really suffer so i feel bad. the weekends are hard for them so if i dont see them on monday they get upset :(

last night i called my boss who happens to be my friend ( she recently becaem the boss) and left her a message saying that i felt i had no choice but to talk to my supervisior and her boss but that i wanted to tel lher first in case she felt like she wanted to tell them. i said because a child was involved ethically i have no choice but to stand up for him and myself. im speaking to my supervisor tommorow and then on monday i geuss we will go together to the boss of the agency..........im so nervous! i hate this.

Dear Jess--I'm so proud of you!

I know from the above quote that you are so 'pure of heart' and really care for the children in your care!

I'm so glad you made this phone call today. You've taken the first step. Thank God for answering machines. You can give her the 'polite' heads up for your plans...Remember, your victim here!!!! You didn't ask for this situation that now you have to take action on. Your doing the right thing and hopfully, others will realize that this kind of stupidity will not be tolerated. The child will see (as someone else said) that adults will have consequences for their poor choices too.

This negative experience for you --might have a good 'learning' conclusion for everyone one.

Good luck. I will be thinking of you on Monday. If this person calls you back, I would just not answer the phone and get into a decission with her....enjoy your new puppy and weekend. I know your nervous but when you think of it,,,,go play with the puppy!

Congratulations...glad you felt the foum could be of help to you.

I'm really upset! today a kid at work came up to me and asked me if i was sick. i said actually i am sick, i have a cold. he said "oh well i did something to your keyboard." the short story is he was in my office wiht this therapist and another therapist and she told him to cough on my keyboard (he was sick) so i would get sick i geuss. when i confronted her about it (she is my friend by the way) she laughed and said they did do that, they thoguht it was funny and then said sorry. i geuss they think its funny becasue i disiinfect my desk and stuff every couple of days becaseu the kids we work wtih have very poor hygiene, i worke in a resdiential facility. anwywas do ppl agree that this is upsetting? or am i overreacting?

Jess

I might be posting prematurely as I have not read the other responses because I couldn't wait to write .... That's a friend??? I would be sure to disinfect everything from now on ... you have people intentionally making you ill. I sure hope your "friend" came over with some gluten-free chicken noodle soup to make up for her lapsed judgment!!

i know my sup would freak out about that, inolving a child in something innapropriate...

You definately need to tell. It's really your obligation to as the "friend" who did this needs to be reprimanded from someone other than you for her poor professional judgment.

For the friend aspect, that's your responsibility to jump down her throat for! But since it involved kids in an inappropriate way, the sup needs to know.

Make a cup of tea or similar for them and go over Explain its not funny and you do not appreciate it and involving the child was professional misconduct and if they were not friends you would have no hesitiation going to the supervisor.

After they understand or not take out a bottle of laxative with a few removed and tell them they just drank enough to have them on the loo all day.

This would also make the point to not expose you to gluten. ;):lol: I have some relatives I might use this one on, only it would be waaaayyy to tempting to use the laxative!!! :lol:

I had a feeling you might say that. :) Our children need more people like you and less like your 'freind'.

I am glad you made that call. It would have been one thing if it was an adult on adult prank but involving the child showed very poor judgement on this person's part. I hope everything goes well.

Yeah, I think you made the right decision too. I just provided the alternative as a option but the involvement of the kid is really inexcusable.

Jess, I agree, this is awful on many levels. For therapists to tell a kid to do something that would make somebody sick is inexcusable. It teaches the child that it is okay to play dangerous tricks on people, to keep secrets, to bully others (because it is a form of bullying) and other things I can't think of right now.

I agree...bigtime. I'm a former teacher and that is SOOO unacceptable to TEACH a child to do something WRONG!!! That's CRAZY!!

what kind of dog?? :)

don't forget to document the date, time and names of individuals involved. You need to put it on paper like a time-line. Include their actions to your desk and describe how it affected you. How your space was violated, your health was attacked and how they used a child in their "prank."

They will either lose their jobs or be disciplined (if you are in a union). You should be protected under your state's "whistleblower" law and additionally this is harrassment on the part of the adults.

Additionally, these adults do not belong in this field as they obviously lack compassion and understanding, so if they are terminated it would be for the best for your organization.

My mother-in-law got a Yorkie puppy from a breeder once. Within 2 weeks, it went blind, would not eat, and died. She called the breeder who tried to make excuses, etc. but finally had her come and get another puppy for free. The breeder knew, legally, she was responsible. :(

I should add that the new puppy was healthy and happy and is still with her.

Dearest Jess

There are no words to take away your pain. "I'm sorry" seems so pathetic..but it's all I can think of.

I pray you took the day off so you can grieve and let the emotions come...You sure do not need to deal with your 'work' situtation today.

Please take care of yourself Jess.

We care so much about how you and "F" are doing. Lean on each other. Please come here to us when you feel the need.

Hugs and love

Judy

I am so sorry about your puppy. I know how quickly you can bond to a pet and the loss is great no matter how short or how long of a time you have had her. I also hope you stayed home from work so that you can grieve. Many Hugs.

    • After doing some research, apparently there is a connection between Celiac Disease and sex drive. Here are just a couple of links I found: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PnGq_Vz6TuE   http://www.naturalnews.com/037361_sex_bread_gluten.html
    • This article, and the comments below, may be helpful: https://www.celiac.com/articles/21721/1/How-Celiacs-can-Deal-with-Accidental-Gluten-Ingestion/Page1.html
    • Long ignored and dismissed as unscientific and crude, are intestinal worms destined to be the future of autoimmune disease treatments? Hookworms. Intestinal parasites. They sound gross. The thought of having one's gut infected with a parasitic worm generally makes people's skin crawl. Indeed, intestinal worms, like hookworm, have a bad reputation among health experts, and have been the subject of fierce public health campaigns seeking their eradication. However, researchers have also documented the gut healing abilities of parasites like hookworm. View the full article
    • well, we're in sort of similar positions but can l ask what made you go gluten-free 3 years ago?   You've kept the diet for quite some time so where the health problems serious? at the time was seeking testing not an option? For myself, l absolutely tried everything to gain weight after losing January 2017. By April/May l started wondering how on earth l could be eating : regular meals, Boost shakes, fast food and sodas and candy all day, pretty much daily and still be losing. Some of these meals at home were pasta packed which, at the time l really thought goulash and cans of chef Boyardeee would help me gain     And years of headaches, brain fog that l didnt know what to attribute to but never suspected celiac until the weight loss, and legs and feet that hurt constantly (l didnt really know this could be due to gluten but it relived after being gluten free).   l am only about 2 months in, l did take a really basic TTG ia test after getting a response that my GI would test ''at some point'' and not being clear when that was, and very tired of being 97 pounds and scared of losing more!   so l now also have to wait to be tested more extensively, but l have gained some weight  and gave noticed some changes.    Did you have any improvements after going gluten free? If the test l did take had just been a clear ''no'', l dont  know how motivated l would have been to do this. It wasn't a clear yes, either, but designed like a drug or pregnancy test so the weak red line  does signify at least some sensitivity.   Typically the longer you wait, if in fact you are sensitive or even have celiac disease, the harder the challenge may be so l can understand the anxiety. l am planning for about 6 months. l could not handle going back on a gluten containing diet with my current job as well, and especially not during holiday retail season!   l would start very slowly. Is your new job going to be stressful? You might want to get a feel for the environment first and how you're going to deal with it on days when you might be feeling like utter crap >.> A headache that feels like a band around the back of my head and eye pressure was something l dealt with on my bad days before being gluten-free. It's not easy to function and when l did, l wasnt a nice person or very efficient.   You can start slowly, and please font be too concerned about fitting all of your challenge into six weeks, IMO. l wouldnt think of it as just a short term binge. Yes, you want to get it over with, but if you really fall apart and dont think you can even consume gluten daily, maybe try to do what you are able to do and if the time period gets stretched to 8 weeks or maybe more don't panic.   it should be difficult at first and even a shock to your system, but  even though you will likely not feel well the entire time you're challenging to retest, maybe by a few weeks in the symptoms will be slightly less severe and you can find ways to ease them. Any meds that you have taken like nsaids, a steroid, even Flonase helped me but l really dislike the side effects.   If the process in general with doctors and asking about this also gives you anxiety l would really recommend the walkinlabs recommended here. After 6-8 weeks, order (around 300 so plan for it financially). That will be your answer, make sure you have truly waited enough time to be properly tested and order the most extensive tests.    It's not something you want to have to repeat but l know l am not looking forward to it either! You will have your answer though, which, even if negative will be satisfying.
