I'm back from my work meeting. It was a lot more fun than I remember from last year, but last year I'd just been diagnosed with the Lyme infection.
I also remember people from last year, so connecting was fun. There was a service project yesterday and a lot of really wonderful supportive exercises that we did during the weekend.
It can be frustrating to be a dialysis social worker, often. Indeed, I think that working in dialysis can be really difficult. Although we have our work in our clinics with the same crew, there is not a sense of connection always to the larger whole. It was fun to connect with that larger whole.
We had two presentations today that brought up stuff that was frustrating...the first was about our benefits and the things that are changing. The second was about the new CMS Conditions for Coverage which is going to be confusing and frustrating for awhile, regardless of what we all do.
Like I said, I really enjoyed the meeting and I felt well during it (except when I inhaled some of the soapy liquid for the bubbles we were given - not recommended). But I did get 2 migraines, and today's has left me feeling achy and kind of "hung over" without the drinking.
I'm hoping a bath with Tea Tree Oil in it will help tonight! I have plans for the weekend, and I don't want to change them.
