Resident beat me up. After 3 incidents of any kind between a care giver and a resident the care giver gets fired.
My #1 was the resident got hurt, near the end of my shift she wanted me to just sit there with her and keep her company until she fell asleep, but I needed to switch over the laundry real quick or the next shift would complain that I wasnt doing my job. I talked to her for a couple minuets, saying I would be less than 5 feet out of her door, just switching over the laundry real quick, and id be right back, and she assured me that she wasnt a baby and she could be fine for a few minuets. I went out, took out the laundry in the dryer, put the laundry from the washer into the dryer, got half the laundry from a basket into the washer and I hear a big THUMP, she threw herself out of her bend onto the floor. That one was my fault, I signed the write up, I felt terrible. She was fine, a bruise on her forehead but otherwise ok.
#2 I got punched in the face, split my lip open. Resident did that. I would not sign the write up.
#4 resident was beating me up, I called for help, nobody would come or even answer so I started wrestling her towards her room (I couldnt run away, resident could fall and hurt htemselves) the Nurse came over and saw us, didnt even do anything to help, apparently never heard my calling for help, and walked off. Wrote me up. Told human services I was hitting her and dragging her towards her room while screaming at her that I was going to put her down. -_- yeah. I wasnt. When I explained what happened to the human services lady she was like "oh, that makes a lot more sese actually..." because the resident in question had no bruises on her body, did not act traumatized, and is like 3 times my size. Im a tall person. This resident has like a gfoot on my height. I woul
dnt sign that write up either, but they fired me anyway.
I broke up with my current boyfriend. I realized I didnt really love him, and if I moved in with him and tried to be around him every day I might kill him. My ex that I live with now isnt bad, I use his laptop while hes gone at work, sometimes while hes at home, which is something he doesnt let ANYONE else do. He puts seasons of TV shoews I want to watch on it so im not bored. I get full access to his XBOX One and XBOX360. I even hooked my tower up to his TV so I can play my computer games on it, no internet yet though so no LoL. We get along way better than I thought, there are occasonal fights, nothing big. Mostly just me being bored and instigating sometimes.
Sure, send me your phone number sometime. I can still get on gaia from my phone, its just a pain in the a** to msg anything, im on my roomies laptop right now though. Hes at work so I am using my mobile hotspot for a minuet.
I got my new job though! Im actually really happy about it too, I was hoping for a job at the Chevron where my roomie works, or at the Taco Bell right across the street (omg I love taco bell....) but I got a job over at the McDonalds inside the Walmart in my town. Its a bit of a bike ride but one of my coworkers gives me a ride back in her truck. I get 50% off all the food 30 minuets before or after my shift, score! I dont actually like McDonalds food that much, but at least its uper cheep for me now. At least on days I work, but cmon, im not riding all the way to McDonalds on my day off, 3 miles away, just to buy cheap fast food. lol I start on Tuesday the 1st at 10am. So excited. I wanted to learn to use a cash register and get some fast food experience. Looks good on a resume and such. Especially if I want to get a job at my local family owned diner. They require experience.
How have you been?
