I'm a CNA at a long term care facility, and about 20 of our residents have the stomach flu. Caregivers are starting to get really sick too. What really bothers me about it, is that we made them aware of a few residents showing symptoms before the huge outbreak, and they did nothing until now when it's out of control. I even brought in a ton of bleach wipes because trying to find disinfectant spray in the building is like finding the needle in a haystack. I put in my two weeks today, because I've had enough of the poor management and negativity because everyone is so unhappy with things.
** I'm very happy about most other things in my life though Biggrin

Ugh what a pain! It sad that everyone has to suffer now even though they had warning.

AFM, I'm just grumpy that DH is being a d*ck. He's been in super PMS mode and I'm about to beat the crap out of him ;). He's taking out his bad moods on me and sometimes DD and I get so mad at him for it. It's not work or school so I don't know..

so here goes....thanks for this thread i needed it.

so my complaint strictly goes to work. i am so mad that i got scheduled every holiday except new years eve and new years day. i think my bosses logic is so screwy it's unreal. i can deal with being scheduled christmas eve and christmas day but severely mad over the fact my vacation was denied and most of all was scheduled on my birthday(the day of my anatomy scan)

2 months ago every manager had to request their 2012 vacations....1 one of mine was the week of the jan 9th. after all what birthday wouldn't be great especially if it was paid time off. so before my boss completed next months schedules i reminded her about my vacation coming up. she assured me it was taken care of and told me i had it off. so with this in mind my last dr apointment i went ahead and scheduled my anatomy scan on my birthday since i thought i had it off....what i thought would be a really great birthday. be on vacation,, get to know what i'm having, see my baby, and paid time off. ha. the next day i went to work i saw the next set of schedules. nothing was honored like i was told.

i did not get my vacation and got scheduled on my birthday. i was mad and mentioned this and got a stupid answer. "reschedule your ultrasound amanda, it's not that important" i walked away on that. talked to one of the other managers and he agreed to trade me days so i could have my birthday off. which was awesome. told my boss what i arranged, told her that her comment was NOT appreciated and asked why we had to request our vacations if they weren't going to be honored. she replied back....i'll have mine the next upcoming schedules. uggghh. so frustrated. luckily the next set of schedules start the day after my birthday but what a pain to stand my ground.

That's a loaded question today. It's been one of those days that if I could crawl into bed and pretend I wasn't adult, I would. We got an offer on our current house, well below asking. It's been on the market for 6 months and this is the first walk thru, it's a tiny house. We are in contract to buy a new house, which we close on next week. Between the two, I am spent. Being an adult and making adult decisions can be so stressful. Praying that everything runs smoothly going forward, if not...I might need a white jacket and a padded room soon!

I cannot get on a regular sleep schedule now that I can't take my Ambien any more (I've had sleep problems since puberty). So now I'm sleeping in 4hr spurts throughout the day, and being wide awake in between. Anytime I get close to being back on track, my daughter's sleep schedule messes me up more because hers is also off. Sad We're both wide awake at 2:30am.

I'm having a similar problem... I usually take some kind of sleep aid... Tylenol PM or Unisom with Melatonin.. I've stopped these last few days and although I can fall asleep it's not usually until after 12 then I wake up several times a night (especially because of that really f'ing annoying dog behind me that barks ALL GD DM NIGHT LONG). The only benefit is I don't feel sooooooo tired first thing in the morning.

I know its no longer Monday but my Biggest complaint is this baby is not allowing me to drink coffee. If I even drink a few sips I am nauseous for the rest of the day. That really sucks because Really mornings without coffee makes me a pill to say the least.
