Waiting for the other shoe to drop...
I work for the federal government and have done so for 26 years.
I truly enjoyed my job in health care until about 3 years ago. I just reached full retirement age of 66 but had plans to go ahead and work till 70, that way I would be able to get some remodeling done in my home so I can retire in comfort.
Management changed about 3 yrs ago, the older ones have just been harrassed and seem to be giving up and falling like trees, it's not called forced retirement but it, is the thing of making you so miserable you decide to go.
I am at the top of my pay grade so that leaves a lot of younger people who are being paid less. Until the management change I never had a problem with the job.
Now have a 37 year old supervisor who doesn't have a clue about what I do or care to. I am being harrassed and nit picked on like never in all the years.
I have always worked out in the community' with patients and was on my own, I still enjoy the patients but I can just see the situation going downhill, no matter what I do or how hard I try to work with this person I am still criticized and being written up for trivial little things.
I tried a union grievance but she just lied her way out of it. I have become very depressed over the past Few months as the situation with her escalates.
It would probably be better for my health to retire as I am in bad emotional shape to the point I can't seem to come up with the new things I would like to do in my retirement.
My plan to work until 70 is not working out and I think what if I retire and tomorrow she isn't there, I would be sol sorry for giving up my last 4 years.
I am married but the main breadwinner and also the one with the best 401K.
All I want is just to have this person off my back but it just ain't gonna happen. Sorry for such a long post, I really need advice as to how to get my mind straight, I am very angry and think I'm turning it inward.
Thanks for listening.
