Well I got through a shift that I worked last night, and it was a lot of difficulty. One of my fellow coworkers asked me if I was alright and said I didn't look so good. Besides having quite demanding psychiatric patients I felt like a psychiatric patient myself. I knew at one point that my blood pressure was probably really high too, as I was extremely stressed out. The constant chatting at the nursing station and the patients families and the constant demands really got to me. I felt like my ADD was making it very difficult to concentrate. Besides the fact that I have had to keep a straight face while trying to treat other patients. While coping with my own anxiety and depression. By the time I got home I felt so emotionally drained. Not to mention the pain in my back hips and neck from my fibromyalgia is acting up really bad. Anyway I'm going to try and finish my shifts for this month and then possibly go on sickleave when I have enough hours. But I'm marching along the best I can...
