I got a new job about a month ago as a home heath aid and i was not trained at how to transfew people from the chair to the bed or toilet or anything like that and i just got a 300 lb quadrapalegic that has a lift and all to get her in and out of bed and instead of letting her mom know that i do not know how to work it or anything like that i let it go and let the fear of not knowing and the anxiety this has caused me because i knew i ahd to asked so i did not hurt her or myself was just so mcuh for me that i just called in sick. i cannot keep doing this or i will not have a job and with the economy the way it is right now this is not an option. i was wondering how i can get myself thru the fear of being laughed at or rejected or whatever could happen that is stopping me from calling her mom and saying hey i do not know how to do this and i need to be shown. others keep telling me what is the worse that can happen she tells me she can't use me...... that is what i am mainly afraid of. i have to be able to pay my rent and all. i need this job.....
