Tips for Married Couples Dealing w/Pain, hearing update

If you are in a long-term relationship and one of you is a chronic pain patient, this article might be of interest.

Thank you for those who have sent notes to see how the 2nd hearing went on Monday. I apologize for taking a couple days off. I have not only needed this time to deal with what happened, but all four of us are sick right now. Nothing major, but we all have head and upper chest congestion and a tremendous amount of body aches. Basically we're coughing hacking stooped over when we move and moaning while we do so, LOL. We can barely move. I'd love some good-ol' OJ right now for all of us but I don't think any of us are getting to a store any time soon.

So, the hearing. I don't even know where to start. In a nutshell, the person responsible for this mess was called to the stand and was caught in a multitude of very serious lies, which directly resulted in the job termination, and he admitted what he did.

CD's idiotic psych report was put to shame, her own issues discovered and the report basically tossed out.

Three and a half hours later, three committee of three voted to uphold the decision the person above made, yeah, the decision made by the guy who just was busted for a ton of lies, which were used to fire someone, take away his entire career, destroy our lives the last 22 months in ways described elsewhere at this blog.

No reason given. No logic. Simply, "uphold." No explanation. Personally I think they are chicken shit, afraid to be the ones to stand up straight, look DPS straight in the eye and tell them they are out of compliance with the ADA, which is a major federal violation. It is going to bite them in the ass.

Unfortunately the EEOC takes forever to perform investigations. We have an investigator, a case number, and can hardly wait for the day when DPS has their ass handed to them. I can't wait until we are able to get them for the civil rights suit (lack of ADA compliance, ADAAA compliance, defamation of character, pain and suffering, loss of wages, the list goes on...)

Our attorney will have the appeal done by the end of the week. Sheesh that's tomorrow already. When will this end? 22 months of a living, breathing nightmare, and no end in sight.
