I met with my manager today and discussed some of the issues that I have been having. It was a really good conversation and it helped to set my mind at ease. She let me know that my concerns are valid but my reaction to those concerns is a little out of proportion. She noticed that my PTSD seems to go in 3-4 month cycles where things build up and I get edgy for a few weeks until I work through it. It was a very astute observation on her part. It also makes me realize that I have had much less of a poker face than I had thought. Some managers may have been threatened by my behavior and by my blunt observations. It is a credit to her that she took it all in stride. I am thankful every day for Wegmans. I really am.
As I continue my life with PTSD, I will share my challenges and discoveries on this blog.
