|Princess, she makes me smile.|
This new job may not be the one. Oh I know it has only been one week. But there are definite signs of trouble in paradise. I went to work on Tuesday and by all accounts the studies I was turning in were acceptable. Come to find out, that was not the case. According to one of the radiologists, she referred to my studies as "garbage". That is a real ego booster, let me tell ya! After my conversation with her I then found out from my supervisor that I was going to be partnered with another technologist for the remainder of the day so she could critique my images and assist me with improving the quality of my studies.
Luckily the technologist I was partnered with is a very nice individual and easy to get along with. She was able to help me with improving my manipulation of the ultrasound machine to get better images. And I really did appreciate her help in this area! She also helped me with the scanning protocols that these radiologists prefer. All in all, it was beneficial in many ways. It was also stressful and eye-opening as well.
This particular center is high volume in vascular studies. I reeeaalllllyyyy have never liked doing a lot of vascular studies. Did I know this going into the job? Yes. But, I thought I could overcome my dislike for these particular studies and rise above it. Not so much. My dislike for vascular studies stems from the fact that I struggle with them. I have had help learning how to do them, but I still struggle.
Tuesday was different to say the least. And here it is Thursday and I have called in sick. I have been throwing up most of the early morning...... I don't handle stress well at all. It pretty much handles me.
Yep, probably going to let this job go.
Here is the outcome:
