I am no longer a member of the Wichita callers Association.

familyThe Wichita callers Association have returned my membership form, and dues check that I had turned in, the first of January.
This is based on my own beliefs. This is based on how I feel about things. This is based on how I think things are. This my own opinion.
The way I remember things is, Sheldon came up to me and said you realize the new rules state I have to work the dangle dinner to work the dangle dance.
I started to say something about my health and was immediately interrupted by Sheldon. Could you do this?
Yes, I decided probably could, I agreed to work the dangle dinner.
Later I started looking at my health.
Earlier that year a lady had run a stop light. I had a massive wipeout of my left rotor cuff. A tear in each knee. I had whiplash.
I had zero use of my left shoulder.
I had major health issues.
The number of hours it would take to work both the dangle dinner and the dangle dance was a lot more hours than I felt I could do.
I called Sheldon and told him I would not be at the dangle dinner and dance.
When Sheldon first hit me up about the dinner and dance, I asked different callers, who proposed cosmetics the rule. You have to work the dinner to work the dance.
Most thought it was Sheldon who proposed the rule.
I don’t know if it was Sheldon who proposed the rule. That was the consensus.
Last year I emailed the Wichita callers Association president, Mike Huddleston, I am making a formal request asking to be excused from working the dangle dinner to work the dangle dance.
The answer came back; I had been told before that if I wanted to be excused from working the dinner in order to work the dance, I had to be at the callers meeting and request to be excused from working the dinner.
No, I had not been informed I could only request to be excused from having to work the dinner in order to work the dance, in person at the caller’s meeting.
This was the first time I had made the request.
I emailed Mike Huddleston again. I am making a formal request to be excused from working the dinner in order to work the dangle dance.
I got the same answer back.
Reading the same answer back, I felt this is the exact same thing as last year.
At the time, I was on close to the maximum strength on pain pills. One pain pill did not do much for me. I was taking two pain pills at the time. I was sleeping 12 to 14 hours a day.
My doctor told me in the about 30 days since I had last seen her, I had lost 35 pounds. I was sleeping 12 to 14 hours a day.
I don’t care what my doctor said. I don’t believe that was normal at all.
I lost about 50 pounds.
That was last year, 2017.
Earlier this month I received the paperwork and was informed I no longer was a member of the callers Association.
With the letter informing me that no longer a member of the callers Association, was a letter dated October 10, 2017, written by the president of callers Association, Mike Huddleston.
It detailed what the callers Association thought I was doing wrong.
I had never received the letter until I got a copy of it with the notice I was no longer a member of the callers Association. Along with my returned membership form and dues check.
My personal belief is, the decision had been made when the October 10, 2017 letter was written, to terminate my membership in the callers Association.
I believe that I was not informed, I was no longer a member of the callers association until now, so there would be new officers and they could distance themselves from the decision to terminate my membership.
I understand why I am no longer a member of the callers Association. I believe it was because I was not a good rug.
I did not keep my mouth shut and let them walk all over me.
I took the returned membership form, and dues check and ran them through my crosscut shredder. I felt a sense of relief.
I had put some major hassles and distractions behind me. I am focused on my health.
I am finally getting better. My health is improving.
