I really need to spend less time on this site. I am neglecting other work that I really need to get caught up on! Took two of the kids from the resource room to my classroom today as part of the next stage of the internship. One has Tourette's and can't tolerate medication. I have never seen this poor guy sit down! He is alway in motion and I feel badly for him. I want to find something that he can do to use his excess energy (oh, I wish I had his energy) in a constructive way that will make him feel good about himself. I can't imagine having Tourette's. I don't think he has many friends. He is very intelligent, but has a tendency to wear on one's nerves. Still, there must be something that he can do. I'll check with some others and get their thoughts. Steroids...prednisone...yuk! This a.m. I couldn't get the tv to work. I could just feel the anger rising and it was hard to hold in. I wanted to kick the tv or smash it. I am not a violent person! I hate how the steroids create this rage! Over stupid stuff to boot. I'm tapering off and I do think they have helped. We'll see what tomorrow brings! At least I have the tv figured out now (I hope) so I won't get annoyed in the morning. Tonight I'll get everything ready for tomorrow to avoid any last minute frustration trying to find suff for work--like my glasses and my car keys! LOL  Sigh. Correct tests. Do it. Sign out. Now. Get to work, girl! This week is going too slowly. Exhausted this afternoon...don't know how I will make it through the week...but one day at a time...one hour at a time...one minute at a time...whatever it takes.
