It is Who You KNow

There is a very nice organization which I would love to work for.  It is an organization for people with disabilities.  Here in New York we have what used to be called the OMRDD.  Now it is called OPWDD.  The have private organizations called ARC.  I applied last year when I was looking for a job and I have applied this year for a nurse opening.

When I divorced my husband a girlfriend from childhood took the side of my husband and family in their sentiments against me.  It was probably prior to the divorce that I amassed enemies.  I don't consider anyone my enemy.  But I would like to work for the local ARC.  They don't even want to give me an interview.  Why?  It may be the bogus criminal record I have for writing imaginative letters to my daughter and then driving by their home when the school bus picked up the kids.  I supposedly violated an order of protection when I stopped in traffic.  The order of protection was because I wrote strange non threatening stories which came to my delusional mind.  I was en route to pray for my ex husband's deceased relation on the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary.  This happened on October 7. 2016.  I was crazy to drive all the way up to a cemetery 30 miles away to do a good deed and I was duly punished when arrested and encouraged to plead guilty.  I did not want to go to jail.  People get raped in jail.

I did not want to lose my home, which was  a real possibility if I had been locked up in a long term care mental hospital or jail.

What does the girlfriend from my childhood have to do with the organization that I would like to work at?  She is an administrator there.  I think it is a very cruel thing, for an agency that is supposed to help people with disabilities to not even grant me, a person who wants to overcome her disability an interview.  Why?  Their lack of interest in me could be due to here say and gossip.  I am a good nurse who even has experience in the ARC system.  I worked for Wayne ARC from 1998 until 2002.  It is who you know, so they say, that can get you places or black ball you.

Luckily, I have some friends who are going to hire me via another agency to be a community support professional for their family member.  (God hears the cry of the poor!)

Yes, I am whining about a criminal record I should not even have and the prejudices that people have.
