A Piece From My Heart – Discrimination Or Not?

Discrimination?   Really, Teresa, don’t you think you are being just a bit melodramatic?”  That is the question I have been asking myself for quite a few months now, questioning the feelings going on inside my head as I write this special piece from my heart.  However, I feel I am closer to the realization that, yes, discrimination is playing a role in my life right now.

If you have read my bio or maybe another one of my articles, you have seen that I am a caucasian woman who grew up in the midwest in a conservative,  middle class family.  We lived in a nice neighborhood and I attended a predominately white elementary, middle and high school.

I got married, had children and was fortunate enough to stay home and do the “Mom” thing full time most of their formative years.  Life, was good, it was really good and for the most part, although different than then, remains to be good.

I was given the opportunity to go back to school and start a brand new career back in 2005, launched into the dental field and absolutely loved all aspects of it.  I began as a Dental Assistant, which I did for many years then, as the progression normally goes, transitioned into Office Management expanding my knowledge and spreading my dental wings.”

  1. I understand how you feel, Teresa. My husband and I experienced several setbacks like that within the last couple of years. It is hard when you are of a certain age to get a job. Ageism does exist. It is unfortunate but true. I will keep you in my thoughts.
