Five years ago I learned how horrible people could be. Five years ago I was injured at work. I was working at a dog kennel/boarding retreat in Burlington where I was attacked by a dog. It was a snow storm and it took me over 2 hrs before I got to the hospital because they didn't even call me an ambulance. Luckily the hospital had a plastic surgeon working that evening. He was able to stitch my face back together and recommend that I not reattach the corner of my lip that I had brought in a bag of ice with me. Five years ago I learned that they didn't even have insurance to cover employees. I learned that they cared more about MONEY then about the people who worked for them or the dogs they took care of. After numerous surgeries and injections I still have permanent nerve damage, a large scar and a corner of my lip missing. Five years ago I learned how horrible people could be. I will never forget the amount of stress, pain, anxiety and frustration I experienced over the past 5 years. And I will never forget how these past 5 years have changed me. After 5 years I am finally able to get some closure and move forward with my life. But I will never forget those past 5 years.
