As I sit

In reality I’m right now sat on my daily bus trip into work.

It’s a totally gorgeous sunny day and I should be feeling chipper and full of the joys of spring. But I’m not.

Last night I had my first in depth counselling session or talking therapy as it’s called. It’s been a long time coming since my nightmare started when someone I was supporting at work took her life.

From that came coroners court and a year long battle with my employer about the things they did. 

I fought for this counselling that they have to pay for. I didn’t accept the organisational route and insisted on private counselling. Finally after 7 months of wrangling it has now started. A little late if you ask me, but at least it’s happening.

When you are a union rep, you are never really ready or prepared for what you can be thrown into. I wasn’t.

Anyhow I’ll talk about this one day in my coffee time. 

For now I’m a little melancholy as I sit here in this bus wishing to be in my swimsuit by the waters edge in the sunshine. 

Still, in SL anything is possible .

  1. I know it’s good to talk, but I have my doubts about counselling. If you go over things that have happened it puts you directly back in the past remembering things that should be forgotten. This itself can lead to a depression in the personality. The worst sort of thing to deal with is a “miscarriage of justice” in that you feel things were never resolved as you think they should have been. In the long run, they actually are sorted – if not in this lifetime, then certainly in the next. The longer you live, the more you see this happening. Sometimes it’s not a question of getting what you want, but getting what you need. Anyways, all the best to you, my friend 🙂

    1. Thanks Moz. It’s been just over 2 years now and then what the employer did after. Which I won’t go into now but processing that on my own has not worked because I am a person who believes in justice and the right thing. Knowing that those things aren’t given freely is difficult for me. Talking for me is good and yes does bring it up, but also helps me analyse things. Hence I’m such an open book most the time as I usually deal with things head on. This situation has been difficult as for a long period I couldn’t talk about it as I had raised a case against the employer.
      I’m getting there and much to the employers disdain as it’s embarrassing to them, I am still here and an going no where.
      I think the counsellor doesn’t give advice, they just listen. I’ll process my own advice. Also it’s safer than burdening friends and family with this as I can walk out and not worry I’ve left them reeling from each bit of baring of my soul so to speak.
      Yes it’s s total miscarriage of justice.
      Thank you again
