What A Week It's Been.....And It Ain't Over Yet

What a week it has been for me on the Psych Unit! And... the weeks not even over.. This is a recap of Monday through Wednesday at work for me...

Panic button went off 4 times...
1 Child in restraints....
Multiple Shot's in the ass (thats what calms the kids down)
Screaming and yelling down the halls....
Banging on the walls.....
Children with the stomach bug....
Defiant children in the classroom....
Lots of time outs.....
AND I got observed.....

I think it's safe to say that the honeymoon is over!!!
I mean I really do love my job but I will say i have come home with a headache every night this week and went straight to the freezer to get the bottle of Grey Goose Orange I have chilling inside of it!
And to boot I have been so tired to blog I feel like I'm losing my outlet...
Hopefully I'll get through these next two days with ease...
This weekend I am sooooo picking up the book

with your job I'm sure you will have more weeks like that, but it should get easier. just remember if you didn't care it wouldn't bother you... so the fact that it bothers you shows you care
