I think nowadays people go crazy with diagnosis but if I were going to diagnose myself other than the obvious bouts with depression I would have to say I have terrible adult ADD! I say that half serious and half jokingly. They have tried me on a couple of ADD medications but the side effects are too much. I’m truly all over the place though whether it’s at home at work or in my mind. As any long-term care nurse would tell you the only way to get work done in a timely manner to be well organized. That just isn’t me needless to say and in addition to that my personality requires me to spend more individual time with my residence then an 8 hour shift will allow me. The administrative staff at my facility love most things about me, except my overtime of course! They have been trying to figure out a way to keep me around and decrease the overtime. The result is 12 hour shifts! This isn’t a terrible idea and I worked then 4 years ago when I started. I’ll be working 6p-6a which starts in November!
