Serena's Big Adventure
Well, I'm going out today for the first time since my accident. I'm getting chauffeured to the grocery store and, hopefully, it won't be a big deal. It shouldn't be too busy early on a Monday, so there should be less chance of getting jostled.
On a less positive note, I got a letter from the Workers Comp carrier Saturday saying that my claim "doesn't qualify as compensable." Bullshit! I plan to call my boss -- or perhaps erstwhile boss by now -- this afternoon and try to get some direction here. If he offers no assistance, I'll be making some calls to line up a Workers Comp attorney. In my opinion, it's just wrong to deny a claim for a serious injury that occurred on my employer's premises in the course of my duties. It's not like I was running wild up and down the stairs in stiletto heels while drunk. Geez. The damned staircase is laid out weird and is tricky. My boss said that himself.
Whatever you guys are up to today, have a Marvelous Monday!
