My left hand and my left shoulder hurt.
There are a couple of people who claim they don't read my blog, but if they do I'm sure they are going to think this is hilariously ironic. But oh well, so it goes.
Yesterday I got bit. Not accidentally, like Baron's little girl, and definitely not as traumatically, but deliberately. One of my students, in the midst of one of her anger episodes, bit my left hand and broke the skin. For the record, she also hit me in the face and kicked me, in the course of this outburst. It isn't the first time I've been hit or kicked, but it IS the first time I've been bit.
As my reward, I was sent after school to Occupational Health downtown, where I was treated, courtesy of the Board of Education, to a blood test, a tetanus shot, and the first in a series of 3 Hepatitis B shots.
Less than a half hour after the episode, my little dear was compliant and cooperative. I had no more problems from her the rest of the day, and I had little problem with her today.
But my upper arm is still extremely sore. When I wrestled with a different student today, I felt it. My hand is bothering me and I'm tired.
Why am I doing this job????!!!
Stay tuned Thursday for a "high-steppin'" Half-Naked Thursday! It will knock your socks off! (small smile)
