Busting with knowledge


Just an update on the job. This week has been fairly good. Monday the gal who was training me went home sick so that left us short handed there.I was almost in tears at one point because I was so overwhelmed and unsure of myself.There was a time during the day i could have walked out and not looked back. When I get that discouraged I say a quick prayer for strength and remind myself it will get better.I also say to myself,"self, do you want to go back to cleaning up poop,being slapped,pinched and sworn at?" Then I say again to myself,"Self NO YOU DO NOT.You also love those weekends off!!!!"
I've got the stringing up the machine and tearing down figured out.I can figure out what to do with some alarms and doing some testing things.
I do enjoy the work and I know once I catch on and am trained it will be very enjoyable.As I have said before, the gals I work with are great!!!!!Very encouraging and patient.
The 3 days a week are nice to, except so far I am not getting enough done on my days off.I think my body is still adjusting to the 12 hour shifts.
Thanks to all who have been praying for me.I know it has helped me more then you would ever imagine.I just need to stop being so hard on myself and realize that it will take time to learn it all.After all Rome was not built in a day nor wewre the dialysis machines.
Next week is Tulip Festival in our town.Busy,busy,busy!I only work on Monday. I asked when I was hired if I could have that time off because of my involvement in so many things. I guess had she said no I would have had to use my charm I used on the old ladies at the home.
I will work on some good stories to share. Maybe I can think of some good ones about me when I was just a young lad.(If I can remember that far back).
