Terminated

6/12/15 As of today I am no longer an employee at Neogen; I have been terminated. So many questionable acts by HR and so much stress that they put me through.  So many of my migraines were a result of increased stress due to the idiocracy of the HR department at Neogen.   But like Josiah said “at least you are on vacation for the rest of the summer”. Glass half full kiddo indeed.

Today was one of the worst days all year and that is saying a lot.  But then again it was such a relief to know what was going on…I finally knew where I stood with Neogen and now I just had to worry about Short Term Disability which should be approved through Aug 6th as far as I know.  So unfortunately I still have to deal with HR..ugh.

And of course they wait until Friday at 4:00 pm to give me the news.  Oh and the way they spoke to my mother made me want to strangle them.  I have never been so embarrassed by an employer.  As soon as I walked out of the building I began crying tears of so many emotions.

Heads up this is a woe is me post

It was a great week of relief! But I knew the end of that relief was coming. Headaches are back in full. My job will only be held through next Monday and HR is not telling me anything except that my insurance is good through the end of May for sure. However the procedures that they believe will help long term are scheduled for next month which means whatever insurance I go on May or may not cover the procedures. Limbo is such a hard place to be and it is the hardest place to trust that God has a plan for me. And on the midst of all this worrying my headache just gets worse. I do try to relax and trust that God is in control and then I panic. I’m just scared and in pain to boot. I just wish for once that my HR department would realize how much worse they are making my headaches. They have been pretty terrible through this whole process even forgetting to tell me I wouldn’t get paid without specific documents. I just wish they had been more helpful and more compassionate through it all. But such is life and once again I have let go and let God. Aaaagggghhhhh. In the end I just wish these headaches would go away.

Kristen Long: Praying for you Heather. You should get COBRA insurance to carry you through if your job ends but could also see if they can move up your treatment
Heather Loose Johnson: I don’t know if any of the procedures could get moved up? Is Cobra the same insurance or is it a whole new insurance with new deductibles. We finally reached our maximum out of pocket. I just don’t know much about cobra except that it is very expensive.
Lisa Maier Hutchinson: Usually it is the same insurance just you pay the whole bill your part plus company part. What are the FMLA Laws. I know with maternally leave they have to hold your job 6 months. But I’m not sure if that’s flma or government job rules. I heard an add on the radio about a study they are doing in an experimental medication for migraines I’ll have to see if I catch it again to get website. They pay for all tests and stuff
Heather Loose JohnsonFMLA ends for me on May 25th. Meaning they no longer have to keep my job for me. Beyond that HR is being very tight lipped.

Lisa Maier Hutchinson: Oh man. That’s rough. I’ll be praying for ya¬†Ok my prayer warrior friends. After time in prayer I have been given a specific prayer to pray while laying all of the other burdens at the foot of the cross. I/we are to pray for a continued leave of absence. So anytime my mind starts spiraling in the wrong direction this is what I will refocus my prayers.
