I can't believe I made it out alive...

I’m so drained. Three days of state inspectors at work. Three days of nonstop stress. Three days of pure hell. Add to that two or three new residents, plus a few other difficult situations, & it makes for a tough week.

One of the other nurses is also out until at least Monday with pneumonia, & it’s not easy trying to cover those shifts. Out of the four, I can only cover one, as I’m already working two of the days, and the other one I have family obligations. Not to mention, if I did skip out on the family obligations & picked up two, that would put me at 9 days in a row. It’s going to be crappy picking up the Friday shift already, since I’ll have to work until 10pm and be back Saturday at 5:30am. When I double back like that, I usually can only get in about 4 hrs of sleep.

At least I’ll get to see my sister this weekend. She’s good at helping me laugh away some of the stress. Plus, I’ll be turning 21 on Monday… :-)
