I wrote this last night in response to a some news I got from a girl I work with.
I decided this morning I would go to the store and get her some cookies and a card on my way in to work as she was working with me all day long. It was so hard seeing her come into work, eyes all red. And several other coworkers and I could totally tell that she looked like she was about to burst into tears all morning. We did the best we could to put her in a position on the floor she felt the most comfortable at and after a few hours we sent her on her lunch.
On her way into the back room she said to me and two other coworkers, “Oh my god I feel like I’m going to pass out.” I thought that she was just saying she’s really tired and then all of the sudden BAM she collapsed. Luckily we were all near her and she woke up immediately so we didn’t have to call the ambulance. She said things like this happen when she’s overwhelmed and I’ll tell you right now it scared the crap out of me. We ended up sending her home and boy was I grateful she didn’t drive herself to work.
She texted me a few hours ago to tell me that they were on their way to hospital to pull the plug. She thanked me for all of the support we gave her. I told her we are like family and that I would be taking her shift tomorrow so she could have time off.
I just, I don’t even know what to say. My heart is literally breaking for this poor girl. I don’t know her very well as she’s only been working with us for several months. ( I think I said six last night but it hasn’t been that long). I just need to get this out.
