i've had jobs that have been Hard Work but not HARD. well, the call centre was hard in that it was very difficult to convince people you were cold calling to book an appointment with one of the kitchen designers.
but the job i am currently doing is the most challenging, emotionally draining job i've ever done. it used to have 'rewarding' in there too but i just cant call it that anymore.
so i look after reece's great aunt who has alzheimers, keep her company, make sure she doesnt wander off/get too worried about things etc.
for a few months it was hard, but i felt her appreciation, she'd express concern if i mentioned i was visiting my parents, thinking i was going for good, she was alsmost in tears when i went home for a few days over christmas.
but now even telling her the simplest thing to avopid her doing something she shouldn't, in the softest way makes her tut and sigh at me, she's become sarcastic and increasigly difficult to deal with. im about to go down and get her ready for a walk, we'll have a fus over her wearing the right amount of clothes for her to be warm, i could not bother, she'd think i was less of a nag, but i wouldnt be doing thins right, would i? she wants to go for the walk on her own too, so i feel like tag along but SHE CANT TAKE THE DOG ON HER OWN OR GO ON HER OWN AT ALL.
i feel like weeping.
sorry, i needed to vent, i think.
so share with me, whats the HARDEST job you've ever had to do? *no obvious porn star jokes please
