Holy cow, Batman! I walked into a disaster....and forgot my Mental Toughness blog this morning
Thursday, January 23, 2014
Be careful what you wish for when you look for a challenge. Due to the nature of my work, I will not go into details. My job is regulatory and I am an expert in those regulations. I walked into the Chernobyl of health care.
I have worked 13 days, closed an entire department, recommended termination of one employee and put another one in suspension.
It can all be fixed, and will be better when I'm done.
Unfortunately I am also required to make sure each staff is competent....so....I am working 12 hours daily, all shifts including nights.
I have missed lunch 2 days in a row.
Not taken bio breaks for 6 hours at a time.
Missed drinking anything for 6 hours.
Missed my 36th anniversary
Miss my DH, kids and grandkids.
AND I have managed to eat right when I get the chance!
And am I tough? You can bet your Batshield on it!
