When You Think Things Are Going Ok...

Thu Jun 01, 2006 10:09 am

A horse steps on you. Quite literally.

I've been working hard to get a job for the past 6 months- after being on benefits for 4 years, and actually being "sentanced" to move only permanent benefits, I decided to prove the doctors and my social worker wrong- I CAN work like any normal person. They gave me the green light, and actually, I managed to get a job...

I started working at a cookie factory. After an intensive 2 week course on hygiene and how to work the machines, I started working monday, on a 9 day trial to see if I'm suited for the job.

I had a day off today and decided to go spend it with my horse and to help out in the stables. And I really did enjoy it- everything from sweeping to feeding and grooming the horses. The weather was perfect too!

I then had to take a horse (not my own) from the paddock into the stables to get fed. Fine. I went out into the paddock, got a rope on her, and... she walks forwards, accidentally kicking my shin and stepping on my foot  Sad 490 kilos HURT...

Well... went to the doctor... apparently, the ankle and foot is sprained, and some small bone in my foot is broken. This means rest for around a week, and crutches + plaster/bandages for at least two weeks.

Well, I should still be able to work, I thought... I called up my boss, and- nope. I can't bring crutches to work. Sanitary/hygiene issues. In other words, I have to stay home. No trial period...

I doubt I'm gonna get this job... after jobhunting for 6 month, everything finally fell into place and now everything is bloody ruined again. I can't afford going on benefits again, I NEED the money- and I can't stand sitting at home anymore...

Don't know what I wanted with this thread... those who care, please cross your fingers for me... those who don't... you just wasted five minutes of your life reading a pointless thread  Wink

Why could you not work before?

And is it really that hard to find a job in Denmark?

Best wishes on finding a job though!

I've been on antidepressants and other meds since 2002, due to a severe depression and psychosis. Furthermore, I was diagnosed with Asperger Syndrome, in a pretty severe case as well.

Finding a job as a healthy, experienced person isn't hard. However, when you've been sick for 4+ years, yes, it IS hard.

Good luck with your job hunt. Never trust a horse from here on out though. They're nothing but trouble.  Wink

Quoting Jap (Thread starter):

Not too bad. You'll be ok from this one.

Quoting Jap (Thread starter):
some small bone in my foot is broken.

This one though be more careful with. I broke my big toe in India almost two years ago and I still have pain in it. I damaged the joint when it broke and eventually they will have to scope out the joint and clean out the cartilage particles. The arthritis is a bitch to deal with so watch out for that.

I know exactly how you feel simply because I was job-hunting for... errr quite a long (measured in years). The bad thing is that my country is in much worse economic situation and employers can do what they want and how they want. It is good that you live in economically much stronger country and you'll benefit from it soon.

I do trust my own horse completely (without being stupid, of course)- I just have to be more careful about where I put my feet, I guess I normally stand beside a horse when putting on the rope... unless it's my own- I just forgot it this time around. Live and learn, i guess

Aleksandar, thanks so much for your nice words! I wish employers would think instead of refusing to touch me with a bargepole whenever they hear I've been on benefits for 3+ years.

I guess there are laws that you can use in that situation. After all, it wasn't your fault that you were on benefits.

Speaking of benefits, it's good you had them. When my mother was treated for Hodgkin's disease, she had no benefits at all, although she had to go through six months of chemo-therapy.

Anyway, here's wishing you a speedy recovery.

I feel for you. This is a typical case of Murphy's Law coming back to haunt someone. I've had these kinds of things happening to me many times in my life (though none had to do with any horses). Things go well, and then there's something or someone ruining it.

Try to keep your head up and bounce back from this as soon as you can. I've learned now in my previous experiences that when this happens, you should think on how to do things right and simply forget about this just to calm down even for a few minutes or hours and then, mostly after a good night's sleep, you'll think more clearer on how to sort things out.

So my advice: try to recover from this and in the mean time, take your time to figure out how to sort things out and relax a bit. Don't try to rush things, or else you'll fill your head with too many things and you'll have even more problems. Just stay calm about things and take your time.

Get well soon, Janni. I'm confident you'll have these issues sorted out quickly.  Smile

Hey, when you mentioned this last night I thought    however, like I said to you, i'm sure you'll be ok  

Seriously though, don't give up hope, you should heal up in no time at all   and hopefully your boss will give you another chance, I mean you were simply involved in an accident, you couldn't have forseen that  

If you need help with anything let me know

That's terrible  Sad I hope she got over it- physically as well as mentally. That sounds like such an awful experience...

Funnily enough, this is the first horse-related injury I've had... I've never even fallen off a horse. I'm just waiting for that to happen though- the other riders keep telling me that you aren't experienced until you've fallen off a hundred times Big grin (it does help that my horse is so considerate that she stops whenever she feels I'm losing my ballance/doing something wrong  Wink)

Jap,

if the company and your manager are in any way decent they should keep the job open for you - if they do not then is that the sort of company you want to work for?

It might be worth phoning your manager to see what he say's - after all it is not your fault - it was an accident. Ask if there is something you could do that does not rely on you having to walk / stand etc - it shows willing on your part and you might enjoy it more.

That's just a bad break (no pun intended). Those sort of things happen, unfortunately - not much one can do about them.

I would think that you'd be able to keep your job, and as others have said, if you can't, it's probably a sign that it may not be a very good place to work.

Keep your head up - minor setbacks can easily turn into major ones, but only if you let them.

Sorry, but what is that ?

It's a condition somewhere in the autistic spectrum... it means you have autistic features, but you're still somewhat normal  Silly An Asperger has problems with being social, his/her days have to be somewhat scheduled and their balance and so on is somewhat limited  Smile Google it and you should be able to find out more if you're interested  Smile

Thanks for your kind words, wrighbrothers Big grin

By chance, do you know the book "The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time"?

Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened.

she walks forwards, accidentally kicking my shin and stepping on my foot   490 kilos HURT...

Ouch! I think this wasn't however as painful as when I accidentaly was under one of the three wheels of the Cessna P206 TF-TAL (just fully fueled, I think weighing 1.5 tons).

However, this is very sad that you was writing. I hope you can get a trial again, but without being walked over by a horse, weighing half a ton...

Well, two bits of advice.

1. If you are indeed terminated, eat the horse. It has certainly earned that!

2. Emigrate to the US where it would be against the law to discriminate against you on the basis of a medical condition.

Of course you should also understand that in the US there are no 'benefits' and the usual fate of someone in your condition is to live under a bridge with a shopping cart.

Well I have to ask! No DANISH?

Seriously, good luck. The other job sounds better. The food industry can really put you off food. My wife used to come home smelling like Italian food and while it worked okay for us at home, it led to some serious embarassment at an Italian restuarant. Damn Pavlov anyway!

Just show up with the plaster and explain to your boss what happened. You did nothing wrong so why should you not get the job??? Horseriding wastn a crime last time I checked.

Afraid not... can you tell me more about this? I viewed the page you mentioned, but I can't figure out what you mean by this  Silly
