So, I ended up going back to a different support group online. It was better. I don't know if anyone remembers, but I was going to one and the guy kept getting on me about anger, when I didn't even really feel angry. It's funny, because one of the issues that I was bringing to the group was this odd, but ongoing problem that I've had since the pandemic, and it's that I am not getting my mail. I know that sounds odd, but it has worn me down tremendously with all of the trips to the post office. It's crucial to get your mail-becuase bills, etc. Not to mention that the box was broken into prior to the pandemic. I had the mail go to a PO box and then had it re-keyed. Since it was re-keyed and rerouted back to my house, the mail has just vanished. It's been like three weeks and I no longer get it. Not good. I need my car tags and health insurance cards.
So, back to the post office. They have been really awful. Just no help. The other post office that was taking care of my PO Box was OK. So I had to go back today, and it's an hour minimum each time. I mean creditors, the IRS and whomever else will not accept the excuse that I am not getting it. So I was standing there when the person ahead of me was going on and on; they were not getting their mail, either. What a disaster. People were lining up. I started talking to her about it. She said it was the worst post office ever and to get online and to contact postmaster general.
When I asked them if they were still holding my mail at the post office, they said that they were not, but that it was not coming to my box, nor was in the Post Office. So where is it? It's been like three weeks since the re-key and reroute back to my house, so what gives? I expressed that I thought that it was incredibly fishy, that ok, that the theft is now not from the outside, but is looking like it's from the inside? So, what now then? Was it made to look like an outer break-in when in fact now with the re-key the mail is missing completely? She asked if anyone else has a key to the box. They don't. This is why I re keyed it. I told her that the mail would not simply disappear into the ether or the twilight zone, and that receiving mail is a big deal-in fact violation of it is a federal offense. People in the office were talking about it. I'm quite concerned now about identity theft and financial compromise. This is why I had a secure box at the other post office. Identity and financial theft can destroy you for a long time. I conveyed that since now the situation has been narrowed down to the post office and that all of the other variables have been isolated off. She just stared back at me.
When I talked about this at the support group, the "coach" just talked down to me, accused me of having an anger problem...yeah...sure...so just stand here and watch my personal and financial information be taken?? When I went to the other post office there was a guy there who *really* got mad. Like seriously. He came in, screaming refused to wait in line. Apparently they had his ID and would not give it back. He was making a total scene. He also claimed personal discrimination. He started shouting, "this is why people go postal." Now, granted, I'm really upset but I don't think I"m gonna go there.
When I talked to the woman in line, she said to get online. I found the postmaster and they have him there with a media contact. I certainly hope this gets straightened soon and will resume normalcy, when I get the mail at my other PO box like I was. It worries me.
I also don't want to go to the group, I'm scared of the actively suicidal people there making threats. The coach doesn't even call the authorities. It's a trigger for me since I made an attempt a long time ago.
