It took me almost a month to get an externship for my chosen career and after a week and half, I'm told not to come back. I'm really trying to hold it together because this really upsets me. I heard the women in the office talking while I was in an exam room with a patient, "She's a hard worker, she's just slow." I've only worked with the patients for 3 and half days and worked on the computers for three days, I get the work done right, but apparently not up to the speed they expect.
I feel like I've been kicked in the face. I have been working my little ass off. Like I said, I did the work.
I'm frankly kind of speechless. I worked so hard to get to where I am and because I'm a big woman and don't move as fast as everyone else, I'm loosing out.
