Another sexual abuse class tonight--ugh

Wednesday, February 27, 2013

We are taking a series of 4 sexual abuse classes for additional credit hours for our foster/adoption certification. The first class was Monday and it wasn't too bad, but I truly dreaded going. These instructors have many years of experience and they generally tell you really interesting stories. This lady is no exception, she's fostered over 500 kids in the last 30 years. But her stories are a bit too graphic for me and I was really happy to get out of that 3 hr class. She is teaching all 4 classes in the series and tonight she teaches on how to tell the signs in your foster/adoptive child.

On a spark people happy note I did 10 min on the elliptical yesterday!! That's huge for me as I have Dystonia, a movement disorder and generally can do about 130-150 steps on that machine and I'm done. I took it slow and it was pretty fun and the feeling of accomplishment was awesome!! So today I'm rockin Wednesday, going to try for 10 min again and going to try to have an upbeat attitude about this class tonight.

Happy day Spark friends!

    TThe sexual abuse classes can be very hard to sit through. During Nursing school, we had 3 weeks of class on the subject. As an abuse survivor, for me it was very very difficult to watch the videos or do open discussions on the subject. The videos and stories are SO graphic.
    SO, I commiserate with you, but once it's done, it's done!! Same with the exercise, once it's done for the day, it's done!! You can do this, one step at a time. Keep pushing your limits, but don't injure yoursself.
