Almost losing it...

Saturday, July 05, 2014

Very confused over what exactly I am to do. Getting mixed messages about what the plan of action is. Being put in very uncomfortable situations. Have to work the floor on 2nd and third shifts when there are holes. Insomnia is a problem. Saw my psychiatrist who gave me more ativane to get to sleep with. I will take it day by and we will see how it all turns out. I want to please my boss but they may have over estimated my ability to accomplice all they want done. Please keep me in your thoughts, Cheers,, Keith

    Sorry to see you are facing such challenges. Wondering if it would help you to ask your psychiatrist to write a note to the boss for some type of accommodations, like where you only work one shift so you can get your sleep into some tpye of pattern. It is well documented that those who are switching from shift to shift do poorer personally & professionally.

    Hi Keith!
While you're feeling pretty overwhelmed, the best thing you can do for yourself is to make sure you look after YOU! Please try to eat as well as possible and try to get adequate rest. If insomnia is a problem, go back to your relaxation things -- or swimming! I know you will get through this. You've definitely got what it takes! Just don't forget to look after my friend, Keith!

And btw -- you are always in my thoughts! emoticon

It has been over a month.

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

It has been over a month since I last said hello. I do truly miss my spark friends. Quite overwhelmed. Feeling the pressure to get certified in MDS and Wound Care ASAP. I am going to take the wound care certification in 3 weeks. I have been working so much. Trying to keep the wound program on track. I am also having to work the floor. So there doesn't seem to be much time for studying. I am being asked that I take the bull by the horns in the MDS program which is controlled by an LPN and make things happened to open up the system. I have been to 2 courses for MDS but don't have experience so it is very difficult to do and I am at a disadvantage. I am doing my very very best. Buying book and resources to help me get through these certification exams. But I am being asked to learn a whole lot of material in a very short period o time without a lot of experience in these fields. Please keep me in your thoughts. I hope to be back soon . I had better because my health is going to hell. Cheers, Keith

    I've also missed you. But we all understand that you have been busy and for good reason. Keep your chin up and persevere.

By the way, I love that "napping" picture.

    I have been thinking about you too and have missed you. Sounds like you are busy. I have to agree with Felinebetter that they have great faith in you to have selected you for that position. I think you will enjoy it and do a great job. It is a lot of work but will surely be worth it. I love what I do and have never regretted leaving bedside nursing.

You are doing the right thing with obtaining extra resources for the certification test and I am sure you will do well. Just keep telling yourself emoticon and you will!!!

Good luck and keeping you in my thoughts and prayers!!

    awww! You haven't left my thoughts, my friend! It sounds like quite the marathon for you, but I'm sure it will all be worth it in the end. Don't forget - they selected you -- so someone has great faith in you, even when you don't!

Sure have missed you -- but am very glad to know that you're moving forward!

Soldier on, Keith! emoticon

Hi, again

Wednesday, May 28, 2014

Hi again. I hope all is well with my spark friends. Right in the middle of a 3 day seminar. Working almost every day it seems. I like what I am doing but it seems to be rough on my health. I have not been able to concentrate on my spark people activities like I used to . You would think that all this work I would be losing weight but I don't think that is the way it works. Cheers, Keith

    Although you're feeling overwhelmed, I'm sure you're doing great! They wouldn't have selected you for this training if they didn't believe you could do it!

Be sure to look after yourself. Eat well & get lots of rest. I'm pulling for you just as everyone is!

I can't believe it's May 7th.

Wednesday, May 07, 2014

I cannot believe it's May7th already. Much to tell. I miss you all very much. I am working almost everyday. It's amazing, exciting, scary and tiring. I know how important spark people is and look forward to devoting more time to it. But I am on a steep learning curve and have to sit for 2 certifications in the next 3 months. And I just don't want to mess up. Wish me luck. Again I miss you all. Cheers, Keith
