wd, I have not been around, but am sorry to see that you have soem family health matters to deal with, I know that can wear you thin a lot of areas at once. Just wanted to offer up my well wishes and say that I hope you are haning in there and taking care of yourself too. A medical man, I'm sure you don't need anyone to tell you that, though.

Hi guys,

Just been busy. Wow. Mom finally went home on monday. She had been in the hospital since Xmas eve and then in a nursing home to for pt to recover from that.

Then, after managing a research lab in one place for almost 15 years, I had to move the entire laboratory off campus to a downtown location.

Meantime, there is an incredibly hostile situation between two people at work. One woman wont work with the other; claims she is afraid of her, has a grievance against the University, threatens to sue, says I have been negligent in handling "workplace violence." Me? I find that hard to believe.

Arg.

🙂

WD...so for all of your talk, the truth is that you're SOFT on abuse and violence? I feel so duped, thank goodness the truth finally came out. 😉

Glad to see you are ok, or at least hanging in there.

worried Dad,
don't let the problems at work rent space in your head. How is your book coming along?

Sininho,
"Kitty Destructo, the Unspayed Wonder", snuck out of the house the other night. Post your address in about 12 weeks, I think, and I can mail you a couple of kittens.

Well,

HR office has completed their fact-finding process RE workplace violence.

They find:

1) I was not negligent in my handling of threats and workplace violence because threats and workplace violence NEVER OCCURRED. The complainant is exagerating and her complaints are deemd unfounded.

2) I addressed the problems that actually were present in a professional and compassionate manner, and worked through proper channels, such as the Univeristy ombudsman's office.

3) The complainant is found, by her own testimony, to be guilty of a pattern of unprofessional conduct and will get a letter of reprimand.

4) The accused is also a butt head and will get a formal letter of reprimand.

Tah daahh!

Was this stated formally, WD?

Good for you! Congratulations, you are not soft on abuse after all, and now you have the paper-trail to prove it.

WD,
congratulations on your patience while the sytem trudged through these steps. Will they sentence the two guilty parties to work at adjacent desks *lol*

I have a plus, also. Finally got a strong positive response from an "appropriate authority" regarding criminal abuse within my family. I guess I will have to wait a month or so to see how far this goes, but once again I am confident.

How about your writing, WD? Getting anywhere with that?

I have come to the conclusion that I have to write out my entire story regarding cult issues and my family, because it will take my daughter several times reading it as she goes through different stages of her life to understand and forgive my failures.

There is so much that we can see only with the passing of years. And the written story survives in order to be re-examined from each new vantage point that a person gains as she ages, but unwritten memories don't get re-examined for new insights.
