W7 4/12-16 still emotional but also dealing with fibromyalgia flair up and still working through the pain the best I can. I open up to my manager in confidence of the issues I struggle with to warn him that it could turn into something worse and im in so much fear that it might because you can’t control how fibromyalgia is going to his you or when or how hard!

Not being able to fall a sleep or stay a sleep very well but still getting up and going to work taking 5 hour energy shots to stay awake 4/23 leave work early bc of sleep deprived.

Come back to work on 5/14 My period finally started after stopped for 2 months and hits me like a truck with so much emotional and physical pain. Also stopped pregabalin 2ish weeks before witch have extream mood swing side effect. I give hr my note and fill her in on the situation I’ve been going through and she seem so consurned for me and sad I’m dealing with so much we have a chat on how wemon go through so much more then men and I feel like she’s honestly here for me and tell her how greatful I am to be with a company that wants to take care of me get sent home early due to still feeling funny and manager dosnt want me to get hurt. Witch was a good idea bc I was going through so much emotional and physical pain that weekend. Having to go to the Dr on Monday 5/17 for extremely anxidy attacks and crying spells
5/18 fired…. or being talked to to much about my stool and being a potential injury risk, told I was late from break once and said I was not keeping up with my lains when I has getting complaints about how well I’m also doing?
My wearhouse background I struggled to make myself faster and stronger to keep up and earn my place in walmart and lidl. I work through so much pain emotional and physically but I come out on time and become one of the top orderfillers.
My body is use to a way of doing things so I may keep up and preform well. I worked on pick trucks that didn’t need step stools bc well I’m working along side a truck and having to get stronger of lifting heavy boxes over my head to complete my orders on pallets.
Coming into this job my body was still use to the way I use to worked. I had a hard time using my step stool and understanding my power zone. I’m 5ft4in. And im feeling very limited in my ability that I fought so hard to get stronger in making tall pallets/walls.
I understand my limits and the difference between fibromyalgia pain and injuries inflected on my body from lifting wrong.
I understand I have been talked to by people about my stool. And im understanding importance of using it and the benefits of having it and honestly greatful that I have it at this point so I don’t have to struggle anymore.
I get talking to for putting a box above my neck with out a step stool. When at that time I was being extremely proactive and mindful of the stool. But also feeling frustrated in the fact that I’m 5 4 and have to use a stool to put a box on the wall that’s less then a foot out of my power zone.
I get talked to once by creg about getting off break late once. Around that time I just got back to work after deal with the death of my brother so I’m honestly having a hard time composing myself I was told I was the last one to come back from break when that’s false there were a few ppl still out side finishing there business or inside doing the same thing. After that talk I made sure I wasn’t late again. Observing the fact that plenty of other ppl still sit inside or outside finishing their business.
I get talked to about lain management I got advice on how to handel it. I apply it and do my best. I get praised multiple times about how well I’m doing with my lain management. I get talked to about my end caps I get advice and apply it into my work and find it very helpful. I have been told how my lanes and end caps look good a lot more and that im doing a good job.. I see that other ppls end caps look like they haven’t been touched all day and ppl seem to have a lot of lights on through out the day
I have been through the most Traumatic even of my life the death of my brother less then 3 weeks into my job with target. I come back to work having to deal with things with in myself that our out of my control like emotional breatdowns, fibromyalgia flair up, my period stopping and coming back at the worst time ever, and sleep issues and attempting to fix it with a new med so I can sleep better bc one week I had the worse time ever sleeping but still showed up to work so tired to the point were my body just said no. I couldn’t control anything that my body was going through!!!
I have gone out of my way to point out safety issues like boxes that are being damaged on the mez. Pointing out that ppl are blowing their horn and not giving the ppl the right of way. Pointing out that the extendo is off track.
I hear a lot of ppl say how they never use their stool while working. In my time their I have heard of so many ppl that have walked out bc they didn’t like the fact they got put into doors or can deal with the job anymore
I feel I’m a very good and hard worker. And more then capable of preforming my job well and safely. I hate missing work or being late or leaving early
I’m an individual that struggles with bipoler adhd dyslexic fibromyalgia and is now greving the death of my brother.
And yet I come to work everyday and try my hardest trying to work through all the struggles I’m going through
I do my best to be a fast worker that build tall stable walls. But at the end feeling extremely limited in my ability in my power zone.
I am having to re train my body and mind to work a different way after working 4 years of doing something another way with out a step stool making sure I’m getting stronger and faster and building big stable pallets.
I was correcting myself more often to use the stool and make sure that my lains are good and end caps.
It’s extremely unfortunate of the events I had to suffer through to make it though the work day
But im the type of worker that will show up every day. Work as hard and best I can constantly improving myself to make the job proud of me.
I’m very very confused on why I have been fired.
I was ready to start my work week feel fresh and better and determined to work super safe and use my stool and everything I understand that I have been given chances but I feel I was cut short
I honestly feel like I was discriminate for mental illness and fibromyalgia I suffer with. Along with me not being the worker I know I am bc im dealing with the loss of my brother! I feel like they see me as a liability bc my body could freak out at any moment and cause me to be out of work for something I can not control! Even out I have worked through so many flair up before I was even diagnosed with fibromyalgia! I feel my manager just wanted me out asap so they didn’t have to deal with me anymore!
How the fuck can a manager say I take care of my employees and then 2 seconds later fire me! And I honestly don’t know if hr know that I got fired yesterday… don’t fucking say you got my back when in reality your stabbing me in the back

If I can be oh so honest with you Target at the moment. This was the most unexpected thing to ever happen to me. I feel that Target honestly was being two faced in my time working there. I don’t understand how I could get praised for doing a good job and getting advice on how to improve, and applying it and getting recognition in doing so. I honestly felt that I was doing well considering that my brother hung him self 2 weeks after I started and having to go through so much emotional, physical and mental stress and pain. Target made me feel like I was safe in the situation I was going through when they said they understand and see how hard my brother passing was effecting me. I tried my best to fight though everything I was going though. You don’t know any of the pain I had to go though to get up every day drive an hour every day and have to do my best to push all of this aside to do my job!!! I honestly felt accepted there and that was not the case! I was told by so many people working there how they were their to help me. I had so many people surprised that I was able to work through my situation, I honestly felt that after opening up in confidence to my manager creag about the pains and struggles I was going through to keep Target informed that I’m not ok but I am here to work for you in hopes that my job would help me out to. I have bipoler, adhd, dyslexic and fibromyalgia. And I fear that the week I opened up about me being in physical pain due to a fibromyalgia flair up, due to stress in my life that I can NOT control and still worked though strongly I might add, I feel that Target may have thought that I’m gonna be a liability because of my disabilities and didn’t want to spend the money on me later on if it falired up to the point I can’t walk. I have worked though so much pain in my life and have came out stronger at the end of the day! I have fought so hard to prove to myself and others that I can make it!
