The job I loved is no longer there for me, and I don't know that I'll ever go back to it even if I had the chance. I filed a complaint against an officer and three weeks later I was terminated for reasons which are ludicrous. Even the same day I was terminated, another co-worker bragged that several of them decided that if I didn't stop complaining about the captain, they would come after me for harassment.
The legal wheels have been set in motion, but my faith in "the brotherhood" is all but gone. While I miss firefighting, I don't trust male firefighters as a whole. If it had just been one or two, maybe. . . .but this was a conspiracy of retaliation.
It would be very easy for me to get depressed and shove food in my face, but between this site and my kids keeping me active and accountable, I'm working to keep that from happening.
