vet. /single parent. / surgery

I fell and broke my ankle/leg. The Va has very been kind with my ER visit and the surgery. I had to return the day after surgey back to the ER. None if the pain medicines were working. I have never in my life had such an experience. To top it all off I am a medical assistant. I take care of others not myself. I am laid up, rolling and crawling around on the floor and can't' get help I need. Physically and financially. My job I have been with for over 3 years will not help financially. I can't go back for at least 12 wks. Since I have been home I have fallen again. This is not working for me what so ever. I am 57 years old and willing to go that extra mile but guess what...I literrally can't. How many others end up like this. I took this job to help others and look what I get a slap in the face. Colorado for Health Equity And Practice. A non profit organization...Businesses should have to care fior their people when they get hurt. Believe me this is the last thing I planned on happening to myself. A sixteen year old son on top of it. Thank goodness he I's a good kid. You eonder why the American people get angry. I am a perfect example. Dont feel feel sorry fir . Make the laws so I can help myself if I have like NOW!
