As to the 'mean' person lol yes he is still there. We get along fine, I think he has realised that I am more than capable of doing my job. I am managing everything well but at the end of the day I lost so much respect for my boss which I am afraid will never return. I don't think I could ever make them understand how wrong they were and the way their actions affected me at a time that I just didn't need to be treated that way. When I leave though I will look forward to giving them a very in depth exit interview. We have a new CEO who took me aside when I came back and asked me of any way that I thought the company could improve. I told him that I thought my situation had been handled very poorly and caused a lot of problems for both myself and the company. He said he would address it but as that was a year ago and nothing has been said then I doubt he will. Definitely some processes need to be put into place regarding long term illness and leave etc.
So hard to accept when someone declines so rapidly....I just don't understand this world sometimes. It certainly is depressing when you hear all the upsetting things happening and when it's close to you ...well ...very hard to not dwell on it and everything else.
Hugs....hope work was ok...is that person who was mean to you still there?
I can understand how you would be badly affected by losing both friends particular one with a similar cancer. I'm really glad you come here to air your feelings and share them with friends.

Sorry to hear about your friend, Freda. Oh to be young again and untouched by this disease. It has taken our innocence and left us with a fear deep down inside. As much as we try to push it into the background, there will always be occasions when it rears its ugly head. The fact that Freda's diagnosis was similar to your own makes you feel her loss especially deeply. It is during times like this that we should remind ourselves of how lucky we are. We are still able to love and be loved and to appreciate what we do have.....life!
Gentle hugs to you, Judy,

My post is a selfish post as I need to unload. I have told my husband how sad I am to be losing both these friends and how tired I am of this horrible disease but I can't tell him that what really has upset me is how quickly Freda has gone. At the beginning of November she had no idea that the cancer had returned. I don't know why she had her scans but her doctor did say at the time that he didn't expect to see any cancer so I am assuming that they were just her usual scheduled scans which they do in the USA. It brings home to me how unsure my life still is. I know I just need to be thankful that there is no sign of cancer at the moment and just live my life and that is what I am doing but I know that you will all understand how scared this has made me feel today.
I also need a kick up the backside as yesterday I was in a terrible mood thinking about going back to work and things around the house that were irritating me. I have had a timely reminder of how lucky I am that not only do I have a job to go back to but I am healthy enough to be able to do it.
These diseases under the common name of cancer are rotten and I hope that someone soon comes up with a cure or better still something to stop it happening in the first place.
