I feel used and abused.

After today I feel used and abused by my job. I worked 12 hours yesterday, and most of the day was fine. I had a fairly nice day in the cysto room. But at the end of the day I was thrown in an ortho case that was larger than I thought. Despite the fact I called, no one came to help me. We managed to get it started, but I was not happy about being thrown into a case like that. Then this morning, I my first case was a neuro case, and despite the fact I called, no one came to help. I almost cried. I know next to nothing about neuro, and this surgeon did things differently than the other neurosurgeons. I know more about ortho surgery than I do neuro surgery. I was not happy about being thrown into this case. And then to make the day even better, my lunch relief did not show up until 1 pm. By that time, all of the cases in my room were over. Nice. I was not happy. The highlight to the day was that they let me leave early. Sad statement about my day. I have a 12 hour shift tomorrow, and then a 3 day weekend. They asked me to work on Friday, but I said no. I need a break! I have been abused enough.

Basically all I have been doing this week is going to work and then coming home and collapsing. That is all I have the energy for.

I hugged Hubby this evening and noticed that I am farther away from him when I hug him. I think the belly and the tits are getting bigger.

    Sorry you had such a crap day. There's not much worse than being kind of hung out to dry like that. Hope tomorrow is better. But yay for the growing distance betwen you and hubby – those tangible signs are so great!

    That is terrible that you didn't get help when you asked for it. I'm so glad you said no to working tomorrow. Hope you have a very relaxing weekend.

    That sucks; especially considering you had asked them about somewhat limiting your schedule. At least you made it through and now have 3 days to recoup…even though it's never enough. Hang in there *hugs*Too funny about your belly/boobs and hugging đŸ™‚
