Abuse Anxiety I'm only human PTSD The People Behind My Eyes

CNA Chronicles : Breaking Point

I got into an argument with the director of the nurse’s aide company because of the lack of care. There are too many days when I either don’t have care or I get a half day of care. I’m not going to go into the whole thing but I decided to pull the plug earlier than planned.

Before the argument I was going to stay with this company until I found a new one, but they are causing so much anxiety and leaving me hungry for a day and a half at a time! After the argument I decided that the stress level they bring in my home is unacceptable and unsustainable. I’m going to fire the company at the end of the month even if I don’t have another company lined up. I can’t keep going this way. Today was the last straw.

I immediately called CICOA and let her know my intentions. I knew before I called her that I have the blessing of my congregation to go ahead and fire without a backup company. I talked to the sisters who will offer support. I talked to the elders, who will offer support until I get a new company. I don’t have to be abused, neglected or treated like dirt by anyone, especially someone who is getting paid to help. This is going to stop!

The reason I didn’t drop the company right then and there was because I wanted to give my friends some time to get their stuff done before taking on my stuff.

Care companies shouldn’t be allowed to be this bad and stay in business. They should have much more oversight. They should care more. That’s the bottom line, they should care about the client.

I’ve been with this company for 2 years and I’ve taken all I’m going to take. Today was the last straw. I’m done.
