Why have I filed this under multiple categories? Because it permeates every thing we do, everything we have done. Most women have experienced it. These are US statistics. It’s more than just the entertainment industry.
#Metoo gives voice to survivors. Time or money towards women’s organizations also helps. There is no right way- only your own way through it. Take care of you. I focus on women because I am a woman.
This is me. Which one? I dunno- mostly the two on the ends, respectively. Dolly Parton was and is beautiful, but as far as I know, I’ve never been in a position where my boss had the hots for me. Currently, I’m the one returning to work, but I’ve also been the seasoned matron.
Today, I talked to a temp recruiter, and boy, was it ever de-humanizing! “Name your rate of pay”, (as they name a rate 4 dollars less than what you’d previously discussed), and on and on, until finally, I settle on something 2 dollars less than what I need, which I probably won’t say yes to, but it was just so awful. Bear in mind, this was the “Should we call you?” rate, not anything definite, but it still felt swarmy… that, and wanting to contact me by any means at all, at any time. What? Huh? You can try, but sometimes I might be bathing, or in the bathroom, or eating, or sleeping, you know.
So, frustration. But, things have been coming to a head in my personal life, to the point where even de-humanizing temp experiences are at least worth considering. I just hope someone calls me from something permanent first.
So, the boot is history. I need to clean it up before I put it away.
The rolling cart will go to someone in need, who has already asked for it. I love my cart and was planning to keep it, but honestly…
I can do things now to tolerance. Mostly, I’m just trying to walk properly and not get too tired.
PT got cut short. Shame bc I do my workouts. I try my hardest, even when I’m worn out and sore. But, they said they’d give me some things I can do at home, and that’s almost as good, I guess.
All but one of the marigolds look ok to me. I don’t really want to buy just one marigold. Especially since I paid for 4. Shame on me for going somewhere with a no-return policy.
…Got some good news today- my range of motion has improved. Still more work left, but happy to see results!
“I’m all about…
Do your PT.
Aside from just enjoying the bands more than dumbells, I like the way progression is conveyed through color. For the moment, that’s the closest I think I will be getting to karate belts, and I love it.
So far, I’ve been promoted twice! While this really only means that I’ve moved closer to average, that still gives me the happies!
Working out in a chair. I can do it! 💪
