God, it's been forever! So sorry!
Between starting my new job and dealing with internet problems... I've been either exhausted or frustrated 90% of the time LOL Currently, I am internet-void, which sucks. But the company my dad signed up for was seriously smoking crack. They claimed I used 10GB of data in thirteen days
!!! When I asked her how the heck that was possible when I literately use gdocs, facebook, and LJ.. she told me that "10 GB is really not a lot of data when you think about it."
The internet was complete shit-- I couldn't even watch a 'Tasty' recipe video on facebook because it wouldn't load. Therefore, any streaming or gaming was impossible. I asked for a printout of when the data usage was and they couldn't give it to me. So... needless to say, they're not longer my internet provider. They're appealing (after I had some... very kind words) to get my fee waived because since I was canceling 23 months early (again, customer for 13 days only) they were going to charge me $400 and another $150 because the equipment they need back is on the roof of the condo association attached to the satellite and I told them they could get it themselves (which, is a $95 charge of course).
So I called my bank, claimed my card was stolen, and am waiting for a new one. I would like to see them try to charge me almost $600 now. Assholes.
In other news, I am basically officially divorced. The paperwork is in front of the judge but I highly doubt there will be a problem with anything. We didn't really have anything to fight about. The house is being shown relatively often, but no bites yet. I am going to push to have the price lowered again but Peter is making everything
difficult. He went as far as telling me he, "didn't give a shit if the house sold or not" the other day which made me see red. If you don't care, why did you force me out of there?
So glad to be free of him.
I absolutely love my new job, though it's got it's moments... we had a code silver yesterday while I was a 1:1 and I immediately went to the shooter episode in Grey's Anatomy lol It really wasn't funny... but the guy was down in the ED and high on something, and he didn't actually fire the gun so it was all okay in the end. But, still, scary. Manchester NH is a very
different world than Concord, that's for sure LOL
Currently, I am a 1:1 with two patients -- a woman who OD'd yesterday on heroin and was combative with staff in the ER last night -- they don't know what she will be like when she wakes, so I have to watch her and have a nice panic button clipped onto my scrub top-- and the second woman has an infection and it's made her batshit crazy.
One of the things with heroin (maybe other IV drugs too? But mostly heroin) is that it damages your heart-- there's a huge risk of getting endocarditis from it and a good portion of my patients are addicts ((I am not on a cardiovascular surgical unit-- all heart surgeries and bariatric surgeries)). Yesterday I was a 1:1 with a 23 year old who had been doing heroin since she was 14 and had to sit there while they told her if she didn't complete rehab? She wouldn't get her surgery, and then she would die in 6 months. It's not usually
that intense, but the look on her mother's face just killed me. The patient, however, was pissed because they killed her last buzz with narcan and just... doesn't get it. She thinks they'll do her valve replacement anyways.
Um, no. They're not going to waste resources on repairing a heart that will just continue to be damaged... as awful as that sounds.
Also kind of makes me want to write a cardiac-type of fic. But, I digress.
I am officially under 200lbs, too!! It's been almost two weeks now, but I haven't had internet in almost that long and haven't gotten in to update. I feel absolutely fantastic :) I'll post some pictures later when I get my internet back (HOPEFULLY this weekend. If not, I will be at the library so I can finish editing my DCBB and work on the art for the fic I picked up).angelnovak
and I will be posting Poisk Istiny (Finding Truth) on November 23rd :) I am super excited to post it!!
I am also working on a fic for the J2RBB, Sastiel BB, and Megabang. Because I am mental. LOL But its nice to get back into the swing of things :)
