My Work Family

Everyday amazes me how caring people are. I feel that I have surrounded myself with the best group of people. It took me a long time go get to this point but the my family, my friends, and my work family are the best they have ever been. Everyday at work they have been so understanding of everything. It has meant the world to me. Like I have said before I know I'm not always easy to deal with and everyday they surprise me with the compassion they have towards my condition. I know I have been hitting a wall just around the 6 hour mark and I try to push through and everyone has just been so understanding about it. I don't expect it because I expect to be able to work my shifts but being sleep deprived catches up to me. The headache also catches up to me but I try and they see that. Work is my sacrad place right now. It's the one place I really don't cry. I'm not really sure why that is but I typically don't cry there.
Today the surprised me with and iPad! I couldn't believe it. They all pulled together to get me one. I am beyond touched. I don't have enough words to describe how that felt. To look around and see my work family supporting me and wanting me have something that I think will help with my recovery was overwhelming. It hasn't quite hit and I'm sure I will wake up and cry forever just thinking about. I have worked with a lot of people but my group in Fort Myers is by far the most caring and compassionate group of people I have ever worked with. Most of them I just met when I came back a few short months ago. They care so much. Everyday it amazes how one of them will just sit and talk with me and see how I am feeling and now they did this. I don't even know how to express my gratitude towards them. I love my work family and they are by far a very special group of people. A huge THANK YOU to my work family. I can't imagine working with any other group of people right now. They are all so special and I really can't wait to get better and get back to them.
