Em hotep, dear friends!

I have happy news: right after Retreat I was officially hired by the university's LGBT+ Resource Center; the director had mentioned that she wants me to be on the education side of things--so I get to go talk to classrooms about Stuff And Things! Nekhtet! (I'm still hoping to get an assistantship of some kind, which will pay much better, but . . . working at the LGBTRC not only leads in well to what I hope to do with my professional career but, as a result, looks happy on my resume. ^_^ So for now that's the game plan!)

I also called up someone at the larger LGBT Community Center and asked if she had any thoughts on insurance and hormones, since COBRA is killing me and the Marketplace plans aren't any better. She suggested that I try applying for state insurance and see what answer I get; if I'm denied, then she said to call her back and we'll think of something else.

And now the bad news: my former employer has refused mediation, which means that the only way to settle this is to go to court. The EEOC only accepts 2% of the cases it receives to represent in court itself; otherwise they'd issue me a Right to Sue letter and basically pat me on the head and tell me to deal with it myself. I found a directory of lawyers who specialize in employment discrimination; I'm hoping to at the very least have a consultation to see if there's enough on my side to make it worth going to court, if not find someone who's willing to do pro bono work (although how I ask about that, I have absolutely no idea).

I just don't want them to get off the hook. I don't understand why they didn't accept mediation--which in the long run would save them a ton of time and money--unless they think I'm bluffing. And Gods I don't want to give them that satisfaction . . . but I also don't know if it's worth going to court.

*sigh*

But! Grad school! Happy job! I'm triple-counting my blessings, haha. <3

Senebty, and thank you all for listening to me ramble so much about my woes. <3

I'm so happy for your blessings, Gezausenu.

I'll continue to pray for a successful resolution with the former employee, and good luck with the state insurance.

Senebty, <3
