Feeling the Stress Melt Away
Monday I started my new job in the recovery unit. The first big shock came about an hour and a half into the shift. My preceptor sent me on a 15 minute break. I actually questioned her about it. She then informed me that during my eight hour shift I receive two 15 minute breaks and a half hour break. WOW!! I used to be lucky to get a lunch break within the first 8 hours of my shift if I get it at all. My stomach is already getting used to eating breakfast in the morning when I wake up, a snack, lunch and another snack in the afternoon, followed by dinner in the evening. Ahhh...the simple things in life people take for granted. I haven't been nauseated or sick to my stomach since beginning this job. Perhaps sleeping at night and happiness are good for your health. Who'd have thunk it?? I can feel the years of stress melting off. Lets hope my uterus heals from all the stress too.
