    decides it is no longer needed. could be today, could be next year. could be several years. or, with weakened tenure laws, a supervisor decides my paperwork is not up to snuf ( hint; it never is, but its the only thing they count, and the one thing they can get me on, and its not for lack of effort, its just far too complicated to get it all correct ) and decides to rate me ineffective. 2 ineffectives in NJ now and you are gone. they are already targeting older, more expensive staff. yes, it happened that fast.

      I'm so sorry, the uncertainty is what gets to people, I think.  The paperwork was always a problem, it is never ending, I kinda use to feel like I was writing volumes and no one ever read it unless it was a state inspection or for something else.  The only time my writing seemed to be read was when my ER notes on a child abuse case went to trial.  I do wish you the best, but why isn't NASW fighting harder for social workers to maintain their jobs I'll never know.  That organization sucked up a lot money and did little for the profession.  

      I'm thinking of giving up my LCSW license this year because it is so expensive and I'm disabled now and can't see ever getting back into the field.  All that work, gone.  All the work you have done, and given of yourself, and all the work the teachers have done, just gone.  My Dad taught for years and retired in the 1990s.  I beginning to think they are finding new ways to oppress people, but that is just a crazy thought perhaps.
