Wimpering back...

Sunday, July 10, 2011

Hello everyone... that is, if you remember me.
The last few months have been trying and it won't let up at least until December, I'm guessing. I started a new job March 16th and underwent 10 weeks of classroom training that I thought would make my mind explode. I had three exams - one 16 hours, and two others that were 8 hours a piece. I made it through that only to be thrown into rigorous on the job training since then. I've worked every shift - it's intense and stressful... after i get through with this part of the ojt, then i have another 2 weeks of classroom training, and another 2 months of ojt for the actual part of my new job. What was I thinking taking this job? ha! In the end it will be worth it, but I had no idea that it would be like this.

No excuses though -- the exercise could have helped me with my stress from all of this, but instead i would just collapse from all of the brain work and spend the rest of the time studying for the next day. I realize, however, that I absolutely MUST get back to what i was doing for my health. I've gained weight back, my health is going down the toilet and I feel terrible (health wise and self esteem). So, I'm going to put forth a concerted effort to start this again. Wish me luck!!

    Yikes! A 16 HOUR EXAM! when I took my nursing boards I had 2 days of 8 hr. exams and I thought my brain would implode!! Well, little did I know that was a piece of cake compared to the job! Anywho, that's another story for another day. Hang in there. It WILL all be worth it in the end.
