My plan for the future

Here’s the thing, my health is failing. Again. When I applied at Lafayette School Corporation, my health was great. My doctor encouraged me to get a job. And so I did. I love what I do. It’s a perfect fit for me. There is a great balance between working with students and also doing clerical work. It’s pretty amazing. The only thing I don’t like is the work place bullying. A lot of the grown women treat me as though I am incompetent. When, in reality, I do twice as much as them. To see women old enough to be my mom treat another human being the way they treat me, it’s a huge disappointment. My mindset turned from victim to overachiever. I bust my rear. I do anything and everything asked of me. And I refused to let the bullies win.

I wrote a blog recently about my health. It is, of course, not good. It started not too long after I started working. My husband has been very supportive and told me that he doesn’t expect me to work. My health comes first. And everything will eventually fall into place.

Last night I was in the hospital AGAIN with aspiration pneumonia. Which means that while I’m asleep, fluids from my “stomach” are coming up through my esophagus and going into my lung. That is what is causing the pneumonia. They gave me IV antibiotics and two oral antibiotics to take at home. In addition to that, I was prescribed some pain meds as pneumonia wreaks havoc on my body. The pain can sometimes be unbearable. It is the reason I will never understand those who purposely make themselves sick for attention.

Back to the work issues. I’ve always refused to let those women win. But after last night and having to miss so many days because of what has been going on, I came to the realization that it isn’t fair to anyone, whether they like me or not, to continue to miss work placing more responsibilities on others. And that alone may be the reason they have problems with me. They need someone reliable. And I can’t give them that at this moment. My health has to come first. So I put in my notice. My last day will be the last day prior to the start of winter break.

I am sad because I will miss the students. I will miss the work. I will miss proving people wrong. But none of that matters if I’m not healthy. These kids deserve someone who can be there for them every day. And that, unfortunately, is not something I can provide at this time.

So, with a heavy heart but a hopeful spirit, I will leave this incredible opportunity to seek health. I know that is what I need to do right now. And that’s why I am doing just that.

I appreciate prayers, positive thoughts, positive vibes, and anything you can throw my way to help get me through this tough time.

Lots of love!

Jess

My name is Jessica Wolfe. I am the wife of an incredible man and father. He and I have been together longer than we have been apart. We have two sons, one is 18 and a freshman at Indiana State University majoring in Music Education. Our 13 year old son is in the 7th grade and is being home schooled. My vertical sleeve gastrectomy surgery was on June 16, 2016. My total gastrectomy was March 3, 2017. I’ve recently found out I have a fairly large benign tumor in my brain. I also have something going on in my lower spine between my L5 and S1. It seems as though surgery is imminent. Through this blog, I share my life with you and am brutally honest with myself so that when I do look back, I can see what it was that made me make the decisions I did. I also welcome opinions and questions as it challenges my thoughts and helps me grow from where I am. If you want to check me out anywhere else, please do!

One thought on “My plan for the future”

  1. Sorry that you had to deal with bullying. Don’t understand (especially in a place surrounded by students) how adults don’t treat people with respect. What example are we setting for our children? Sorry again that you are still having health issues. You made a decision to better your health, and have multiple complications. Rey and remain positive. I will continue to send you positive thoughts.
