I'll Never Get Used to......

So I've been at the new job now for almost 2 months and I will say that I am completely and utterly in love with my job!! I am sooo fortunate because SO SO SO many people out there can't say that about there jobs.. I am a fortunate one. But though I love my job there are things I don't think I'll ever be able to get used to!

When I was first hired my bosses told me to possible expect anxiety attacks, stress, or sadness because all of the horrible things I would be reading, hearing, and seeing. These are things that have happened to the children I work with. What makes it really hard is that I get close to some of these kids and form attachments and I really feel for them, ya know? And no matter how great of a teacher I am to them and no matter how well I listen there problems with horrible pasts will never go away... And that makes me sad. Children should be allowed to remain children while growing up! They should be able to experience a carefree childhood with friends, laughs, and fun!!

Here are 3 of the top things I don't think I'll ever get used to while working within the hospital:

*The blarring sound of the panic button and then the aftermath...

*The smell of hospital food...

*Having to unlock ever door I want to get in to, even the bathroom...

wow... I couldn't get used to that either. But I'm glad you love your job. That's what's most important.

Wow. I'm happy that you love your job so much, despite the three things you cannot get used to. I don't know if I could get used to them, either.

Yeah I don't think I could handle those either. Ugh.

Your top three sound like
things I'd have difficulty getting
used to as well. Psh.

But on a sweet, pretty note...
I am ecstatic that you are
in love with your job. We all said
you'd get there. Wooo.

I am so glad you are loving your new job! I don't think I could get used to unlocking that bathroom door either.

Despite all of the negativity in their lives, I'm sure you bring a much needed ray of light! You are a great person and do so much to make their lives better each day!
