These last couple of weeks have held all sorts of upheaval for me. I have cried bitterly, then smiled til I thought my cheeks would crack open, then consoled a woman inconsolable at the loss of her child, and another one inconsolable at the loss of her 60 year old home. I have said a couple of goodbyes and still more ‘hi, nice to meet you. I have worked with people that have tempted me to turn to murder and yet others who have made me wish the shifts were 7years instead of hours long. I have been stretched in so many different directions, torn in loyalties, been violated verbally beyond belief, and been validated beyond belief. I feel like I’m on a never stopping rollercoaster sometimes, and am almost afraid to get off lest I throw up my intestines, so bad is the motion sickness.
