Sooo so nervous

31 7 / 2014

Today of all days, I get a giant…and I mean GIANT zit on my cheek.

I’ve put proactive cream on it. Any suggestions for getting rid of it…or at least making it less giant?

I’m actually really excited for my date.

I haven’t talked to someone on the phone for 3 1/2 hours in a very very long time.

My nanny friend is yellow…she cracks me up. Hilarious friends, a manicure, and an eyebrow wax make my day so much better. I swear good eyebrows and polished nails fix everything.

I’ve used this one several times before…but this adequately depicts my feelings after that shift. Holy crap what a day. Everyone keeps telling me it’ll get better, but damn. At least I got overtime today. Takes the edge off a little.

STRUGGLING ALL SHIFT TO DO BASIC TASKS AND TRYING TO GET IT TOGETHER

Yep.. This was me tonight..😔 just when i thought i was getting a grip..Oh well.. New day tomorrow..

Yesterday my supervisor asked me to take a med cart by myself on a hall I’d never been on before. Lesson learned - it’s okay to say, “No, I’m not ready.” I was drowning an hour into my shift and on the verge of a panic attack. She put me back with the nurse training me and I finished the day on time and with a smile on my face, but I felt awful that I inconvenienced the entire nursing staff with my inability to say no.

I was asked out….like on a date. And I didn’t date much before I was a mom, and I haven’t been on a date in like 4 years. And I’m horribly awkward. I know I’m going to be like

Because I don’t know how to act cool on a date. And I know I’m going to say stupid stuff.

My first day on my own, and they throw me on the hall with an LPN who has been there 3 weeks and has zero previous healthcare experience. We were like fish out of water. We were also short a CNA, and everyone on my half of the hall was trying to fall out of bed or drive me crazy.

This did make…

It gets better! And pretty fast too! Make sure you find the right nurses too lean on when you need it and ask about everything. And also.. If you don’t already follow her: check out nurseeyerolls blog and tips for newly grads and others. She’s amazing! Really helped me my firsts weeks! (And before and after too!)💖💖💖 nurseeyeroll

So I guess I feel like I don’t have someone to ask questions to. I do really like the nurse who was training me, but I only got 5 days of training. Maybe it was just the weekend shift because I felt like we were on our own with like zero resources. But that makes me nervous about going to night shift because I will literally be by myself with 60 patients and 3 CNAs.

This did make me laugh though…I was helping out in the feeder dining room at lunch and this severely demented woman was sitting at the table spooning chocolate pudding onto her dinner roll and eating it like

it was the best thing in the world.

Someone please tell me it gets better…because I want to run screaming.
