Hello. Asking for help has never been a strong point for me. I usually struggle through till things get better. I am having a really hard time with that right now.
On October 25(my birthday) I was fired from my job. Have been looking. Nothing has come up yet though, things are about to get tight. A big part of me wants to change fields though and get involved in some thing new. I’m finding it a bit over welming.
Back story is this. On Oct 25 2019 I was sent to load and tarp. No problem I do it all the time. This particular place has no safety gear for traping so normally I just climb my load even though it’s unsafe and also not legal by wcb rules. The mill should provide safety gear for such loads.
This day it was extremely wind I did as normal and climbed up rolled out my tarps. As I did so a gust of wind picked up which ripped the tarp from under my feet causing me to loose my balance and almost knocking me off my load. I upset at the situation went to the office and stated Making people tarp there load with out safety gear and In Such wind is against wcb rules and I should not be tarping with out gear. I also stated one day someone’s going to fall and they will have a big wcd claim and could possibly be sued. They didn’t like that and proceeded to call my office. After which they sent me to a barn. The roof of the barn was at most 3 feet above my load. And was told to tarp in there. Sure was out of the wind but now I had to still scale my load to get up and crawl to tarp my load. Instead of saying anything I bit my tounge and did the job. Only to be fired after going back to the office. With my boss saying I had no right to talk and complain to the mill. I received employment insurance for a month. But seems it’s ended and I must reapply. Not sure I’ll get it I have 2 kids and have 0 money coming in. I’ve been a driver for 14 years. It’s really all I know, I want a change though.
I feel run down depressed and and useless right now. Winter has come and in all honesty part of me is afraid to get back out there. I have had a few accident one that was my fault where I almost lost my life when the truck hydro-planed over a cliff into a lake.
I’m sure if something driving wise came up I’d take it even though it’s not what I want to do with mylife anymore. Thing is with 0 money coming in I know I can’t be picky. If anyone is able to help me out while I figure things out so I don’t end up homeless and so far behind on bills that I can’t catch up that would be amazing.
Thanks for Taking the time to view this.
