This is the only word I can think of to describe how I am right now. I am tired from my first day back at school and from the back and forth happenings with my nurse.
Overally it was a good day, but it sure started out like a scene out of a movie. The kids were hyper to say the least and it took an hour to calm them and get them into the routine of learning. They seem really nice and I think it will be a good year. First days are always tiring no matter how veteran one is. The night before is spent agonizing over every detail, and I find myself tossing and turning throughout the night, and waking up far too early - even before the alarm. Once I got over the initial craziness, the rest of the day went smoothly. It felt great to be back in a middle school setting teaching the students that I really love. But oh am I tired!
Now the nurse.
I am sure I have alluded to the fact that I am less than thrilled with her on a regular basis. She is nice and we have an almost friendship (most people don't spend as much time as me in the donor program), but she doesn't always get me. I sent an email today questioning whether I got my period and asked if it was possible that it has come and gone. Her reply, no it wasn't a period. I then followed up with a suggestion to get tested to see where I am in my cycle, her response was no. I then clarified how I was certain that I experienced a oeriod as I know my body and I have never had a 36+ day cycle, and again her reply was to wait it out. This is just not working for me. I managed to wear her down and let me get checked next week if it is still not here, but I think I may just do it on my own on Friday.
The good news is that today was her last day and I now have a new nurse. I really hope she is more understanding of my frustrations.
Ok, vent over
