Lost My Passion and a Lot of Other Things

Last year I made a huge mistake at work which resulted in me losing my job. Not just any a job, one I had dreamed about since I was 13. I worked day and night to make my dreams come true and in a matter of days it all went down the drain. Its not just losing the job that makes me sad...its a loss of myself. People I used to work so close with some who were called my "friends" have all disappeared. Not one phone call to say "hi" or "hang in there". Where are all these people that used to call me around the clock and I put my life on the line for...?????

without the gruesome details...i was in a law enforcement field and was put on a prescription medication for a medical problem. I was in a minor accident under the influence of the medication and long story short they determined I could no longer do my job. They were gonna fire me but I ended up resigning for medical reasons. I guess I understand my co-workers were in a akward situation but if the roles were reversed I would have never hesitated to pick up the phone and lend an ear or shoulder. The feeling of abandonment is surreal. Thanks for listening and a friend is never more than an email or phone call away!

I understand that know matter what you did! A true friend will always be there for you! If your ex co-workers don't call or stop by, that means they were not your true friends. If you don't mind me asking, what happened on that job? You don't have to answer me if you don't want too. Take care! and find new friends.
