Getting Back to Work

Posted on Wed Mar 13th, 2019 @ 11:53am by Lieutenant JG Addison MacKenzie & Lieutenant Commander J'Loni Mo'Bri

Mission: Vivere aut non vivere ...
Location: CAG's Quarters
Timeline: Right after Recovery After the Overload


Of course J'Loni was getting restless, it hss been a week or what seems like a week since she's been out of sick bay. She os going stir crazy and she just could stand it no more.

"Mo'Bri to Dr. Addison, can you come to my quarters. I would dearly love to go to work please", she said. J'Loni felt like a caged animal and that was not good for her to feel like that.

Addison tapped her commbadge. "On my way."

Grabbing a medkit, Addison headed to go meet the CEO. Approaching the officer's quarters, she pressed the door chime. When the doors opened, Addison walked in. "What can I do for you, Lieutenant?"

"Well for one, I need to get back to engineering. I am feeling like a caged animal here couped up like this", J'Loni said uncomfortably. "How soon can I go back to work?", she added.

Addison pulled out her medical tricorder and started waving it over various parts of J'Loni's body. "Physically, you're fine. I have no problem sending you back to work, but you have to realize that you've just suffered a pretty traumatic experience. You need to also be cleared by Counselor Sabine, and I would imagine that the Captain would want to speak with you before you return to duty, also."
"Ok so now you're telling me I have to see both the counselor and captain rapildy I can resume my duties? I don't believe it!", J'Loni said rapidly.

"Absolutely," Addison said flatly. "Your injuries were physical, but also psychological. And after your objection on the Bridge, I guarantee the Captain will want to speak with you before she allows you to return to duty. As far as I'm concerned, the physical aspects of your experience have healed, but I am not qualified to psychologically evaluate you."

"Oh you've got to be kidding! I gotta see the counselor and then the Captain?", J'Loni said incredulously. "What happened could not be helped. I mean if I could just turn it off I would have but that was one of the few times I could not tolerate all the intense emotions! This is maddning! ", she exclaimed.

"Maddening, perhaps," Addison started, "and I understand your frustration, but I guarantee the Captain won't let you get back to work until she's satisfied. For what I can do, you're cleared to return to work. Whether Counselor Sabine and Captain Haught agree is another matter."

"Oh Fek'lar! So now I have to see the shrink and the captain.....great. Well Doc thanks for the house call", J'Loni said as she got up and commed the counselor..."Mo'Bri to Counselor Sabine, I understand I need to get your clearance as well before I can go back to work", she said.
