I was so touched by the OP’s situation and so happy that her coworkers let her know how much they really appreciate her.

I hope this is the beginning of only good things happening for this OP.

I was laid off due to covid and unemployed for a year and a half. I had a job coach who couldnt understand how to helpme becayse i was getting lots of interviews but no offers. I starter feeling extremely duscouraged and unhirable. The last interview i had i really didnt want to go to and i felt like i bombed the interview and i was actually offered the job. It didnt sound like my dream job so i wasnt sure about taking it. I dif take it and i love it so much. Its perfect for me and i like everyone on my team. So thete is hope out there even though i had given up.

Because that’s his story and now I have to call him and check because this made me cry. I was so happy when he found a place (also at a medical clinic) and people from our hometown write to tell me how lovely it is to see him there and how comforted they are by him when they don’t feel well. God bless you #2!

Me too. It’s hard to comment properly without coming off as patronising as all get out, but truly, this one has me quite teary.

OP2, you simply must be excellent at whatever job you are doing. If you weren’t, that level of appreciation simply would not have happened. People can be nice, sure, but that shows that you are truly outstanding at your job. Kudos to you, may it continue that way forever!
