I realize that my health problems are impeding my ability to work efficiently, but I feel I can still contribute to the team. There is no cause for anyone to try to ‘help’ me with my duties. I know that Agent Smudge means well, but he is making me feel worse and needs to back off. I don’t know why he has suddenly targeted me to hang with, but I am not up to after duty shenanigans, no matter how much I might want to be. I do my job and then I need to rest. I am all right for duty, but I think my off duty time is my own and I can spend it any way that I choose to.
Has anyone complained about my illness keeping me from being fully active in my duties? If so, could I be informed as to who it is that is complaining? I would like to make my case directly to them so that they do not waste time worrying about me. My illness might be slowing me down, but I am still able to perform them. Whoever is saying I’m not pulling my weight should pay more attention to their own duties and less to mine, if they are so concerned about how the job gets done. I can hold up my end make no mistake about that. If our team is in danger of censure, it’s because too many of us are paying more attention to the work of others than to their own.

I don’t know what I did to upset Agent Mulder, but he no longer appears to like me. I feel as though I need a partner, so I reached out to Agent Storm, who said to leave him alone. I feel alone and I would like to work with him. However, he is against that. I don’t know why. He could teach me so much about being an agent. Agent Cuddlebug could also teach me a lot, but he is busy trying to broker a peace between Agents Probie and Skittlebutt. I don’t know what the issue is there, but I try to stay out of it. They will make peace eventually. It’s just a matter of time.
If you could suggest to Agent Storm that having a partner is not demeaning or anything, I would appreciate it. I will continue to try to persuade Agent Storm to take me on as a partner as I feel I would benefit from this. This team has been falling apart since the death of Agent Luna. She is sorely missed and I believe we underestimated how well she kept this clowder together. I only hope that we can make it without her.
