Had a seizure last night. It had been a while since the last of these breakthroughs and quite frankly... I'm slightly relieved. I've been expecting one of these for quite some time now. With the combination of moving, job uncertainty, and transportation issues, I've been quite the little bundle of stress for the last several months. On top of all of this was the knowledge that higher stress leads to more breakthrough seizures. I hadn't realized this until this morning, but the WAITING for a seizure was itself a kind of stress. So Yay, got that out of the way now.*

Speaking of job stress, it has been explained to me that I am now a Salaried employee. I don't think my job description qualifies as one that can be considered salaried. (My official title is Technician, and I basically do Sysadmin/breakfix duties.) I've already worked one Saturday without extra compensation, but was told that we "get really good bonuses at the end of the year to make up for those." Also, I have a set number of "Paid Time Off" hours listed on my paystub. Ummm. I'm hoping this is just some quirk of the accounting software. I guess I'll find out next week.


*It doesn't actually work that way (I could still have more seizures) but that's how it currently feels so I'll take that for the moment.

I'm sorry you ended up in seizure land
Also, I feel like it might be wise to run this scenario by someone lawyer/employment like. Personnel handbook would be unlikely for a place like this, right?
Anyway--- that's what this brain fogged chica thinks.

Sorry to hear it

too bad it's really not like earthquakes letting off pressure.

But hey, lowering your personal stress is a kind of letting off, so good.
