I retook my boards this morning. Honestly I feel more confident in this test than the last one, but the way the test is set up and scored I really couldn't honest say if I passed it or not. I will know a week from today either way. Now all I can do is wait.
Since the last time I blogged a lot has happened. The job I landed changed up my job description and wanted me to come in as a outpatient therapist. I don't want to do outpatient work and I didn't want to move Pooka from her school and live in another county to do something that I knew I would not enjoy or be happy with. So I retracted my acceptance of the position.
I started working part time at the state job again.
One of my residents passed away at the group home job.
My mother lives with me now.
I gained A LOT of stress weight.
I started working out with a slim blonde friend that is addicted to P90X.
Pooka's father and his lady moved to NC. Not to far from me either! So far he has had her every weekend since moving down here. I can get used to that, LOL!
Ummmmmm what else? Nothing I can think of at the moment.
I have felt nauseous since seeing that "F" word by my name this morning.
Every time I try to eat the nausea gets worse. The alcohol has no effect though. I know you shouldn't drink on an empty tummy, but the solid food makes me feel awful.
I toggle back and forth trying to decide if I want to have company over. Part of me needs a really good long cry.
I have slept about 2 hours total between the 2 naps I have had since the midnight posting. My emotions are all over the place. I drank a 1/2 bottle of rum which actually helped me take the second power nap. I force myself to celebrate with my peers that have passed because I am honestly proud of them and their hard work.
The rehab director at the job said that he will hold my position until I take the test again. The test is 4/30 and the results come back on 5/7. So I do have a reason to smile today.
I have taken a shower and forced myself to get out in the sunshine. It is a beautiful day out.
I've read online the stories of folks that have taken this thing multiple times. That petrifies me.
On Tuesday, January 29th, at 8am, I will be taking my PT board exam.
Positive energy and prayers are always appreciated.
I get the results back on Feb, 5 (one week later)
Oh, did I mention that I got a job in the area I want. Of course it is contingent on me passing my exam...which I will *claimed it*
I have an all day orientation for the new job on 2/4...and 2/5 (hard to explain) so basically I will be getting "oriented" prior to getting the official word that I passed and have my license to practice...which I am passing...the first time :)
I am moving this summer to be closer to work when Pooka gets out of school and hopefully goes to her father's home. I love living in Raleigh, but I don't want to do long commutes on the regular anymore.
I am buying a house this year. I already got my eyes on one in a small town nobody has heard of, LOL! Matter of fact I did a drive by on the way to get some stuff done at the new job.
Sooo much to update the blog on, so little time. My laptop died during the holidays and my desktop at home is sllllllllllllllllllllllllllower than molasses on a cold day :( I been trying to use most of my library time to be productive and study *sigh*
Just think, after Monday night I won't HAVE to study ever again!!!!!! Cuz I am passing...the first time...point blank period!
This entire day continues to be surreal. Thank you to all that still check my blog from time to time and those that have provided me with words of support and encouragement through the years. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
I am almost done with my internship. Long story short, it has NOT been fun. I am burnt out. My clinical instructor has a less than desirable personality. We have clashed a lot. I had a mini break down the other day and I've cried more in the last 6 months than I have in the last 6 years.
But it will be over soon.
I work Sun-Thurs next week and the week after then POOF! No more internship!
