CNA and Self Confidence

The first CNA they sent me didn’t work out. I’m not sure what the company was thinking. Here’s the text sent to a friend who is still in the nursing home dealing with CNA’s, nurses and roommates from hell. “Oh Lord! My new CNA is 70 years old. I was like, what? Who sends a […]

PTSD Isn’t Pretty

I posted a photo on my FB page about PTSD but later when I visited the page it linked back to, I erased it. There’s probably valuable information on the page so I do not fault it for that. I removed the link because of the memes and quotes….and how they landed this hour of the […]
