Moving Along

May 8th, 2008 at 03:58 am

Work has been difficult to say the least. Luckily for me I haven't had any more injuries but the physical and emotional toll of dealing with a student who has had 3 meltdowns in 5 days and the need to restrain the student for an hour or more to protect him from injuring himself, others, staff and property is taking its toll. We don't have the staff to restrain a student in shifts which is what you need to protect staff and student from injury and believe me it is tiring to restrain a 5'8" male in a fighting mood. With no padded quiet room we had no choice but to call paramedics to take him to the hospital. Traumatic for all. To add insult to injury one of the staff instead of helping takes off at the first call for help and makes statements to events she could not have been witness to since she left as soon as we asked for help. Some people should have other jobs so they can't make people who actually work for a living take on a greater burden.

I look at the mother of this child and see a devoted, caring parent trying to do the right thing. How she deals with this day in and day out is a miracle. But for the grace of God, there go I. And I hope I would be a wonderful.

In a financial response, after each incidence I want to unwind so I spend money. Not good. I took myself to out to dinner. To many meals out can really bust my budget. I know I could have been alot worse in my spending but I don't like it.
