    What's wrong with you?

    Me? I'm not feeling too hot. I think I'm nailing down a flu. And it's a friday night... and my pals aren't on the computer.................





    what's wrong with you?

    feel free to add your gripes and moans. It feels good to get them out every once in a while.

    My advisor told my fellow classmates that I am not competent enough to be a medical assistant because I am in a wheelchair. She feels I have no right to be in the program, and the physical is set up in such a way to "weed out people like her because she can't stand for 4-8 hours or lift her body weight." She even went further to say--"if I went to a doctor's office and Tanya was my MA, I would demand another medical assistant. No one in a wheelchair has any right to be in this program."

    Well, I think she just might get her wish. I can't find any sites to do my externship because I am a "safety hazzard due to the wheelchair."

    On a side note, I have some kinda head/chest cold, sore throat, crappy flu thing too.

    I'm in the middle of dayshifts - which are the worst and I hate them because I have to get up at 5am to get here for 6:45am. Going out in the morning when it's dark is enough to make you stop and freeze to death like a statue and the parking lot is all rudded from slush that froze ... then I get to go home in darkness and I'm too tired to do anything, but force my way to the front door of the building.

    The condo doesn't clean snow very well and last night after coming home from work the visitor spots were all cleaned out and most of the reserved parking - all except my unit number parking spot and the handicrappable ones - I called and left a nasty message about how I had to pay extra for my accessible condo and my condo fees are the same as everyone elses. I actually asked if they had something against me ... out of character for me.

    My back is killing me and I don't know if it's the endo or I have stones or something because I've been having troubles with my bladder but I can't see a urologist until February!!! And I'm late for my period but there's no chance in hell I'm pregnant.

    I have three papercuts from yesterday at work. That should cover it for now.

    Thanks! I feel better!

    Jadis - that's bull pappy - someone will be more than happy to hire you - don't give up.

    Jadis-
    Dangit! SAME thing happened to me about 5 months post. I wanted to go to MRI school (use to do x-ray) but they said the same thing about the standing, but I had to deal with the same kind of bitch you did. It was over the phone and she was going on and on about how it would be impossible and that I was a liability. Even though they sit most of the time AND they have helpers. GRRRR.... I was in tears. Checked with the disability office and they said there was nothing they could do. If they were gonna pull this b.s. why did they accept you in the first place?!? I hope there is a way around this for you.
    Why do people have to be so damn hateful? They act like people have no feelings and they have no consideration for what you go through on a daily basis. BTW- what was your reply to her?

    Well, I sympathize with you all. What I was planning to post hardly seem important any more and besides, ...I already forgot what it was about

    thank you... sad thing is... I am the best one in the program. I didn't know this until today when my instructor called. She told me that not only am I the highest grade in the class, I am the only one who completed all my competencies right the first time and didn't have to redo any of them.

    So much for not being smart enough to be here. I guess she would rather have her blood drawn by the girl that had to do 10 draws, with a CMA telling her step by step, and still can't get it right. We're done with the class. We had our final on Friday. Next, we start in the phlebotomy lab at the hospital after Christmas. I feel bad for the patients who come in for blood draws. Not only will the draws not go well, I have a feeling that a lot of them will be coming back for second draws due to screwed up specimens.

    I am so close to throwing my hands up and saying "forget it" but it's not in my nature to quit. I am calling the AAMA on Tuesday to see what rights I have and see if her physical form is legal. Monday I have my coding internship in the morning and then my CPR/First Aid recertification class in the afternoon.

    I have decided that I am going to schedule my externship sites and not tell them about the chair. That way, I am "in" somewhere. I will deal with the fallout later. I am picking newly-constructed buildings, so I know they are accessible. I have always thought I would be able to get a site, and once I got in the door, I would be able to prove I could do it. I wasn't prepared for this. They don't have to pay me. I just need 54 hours of time at their facility. Every facility has stated that they will take students, so they have no grounds for refusing me -- atleast they don't in my opinion.

    Sorry to hear about all the bad stuff Jadis!!!!! Truly sounds like a case of discrimination to me. The ab's have shown me enough of their failures. If I were in need I would truly let you work on me anytime!!!!!!!
