Turning Point?

Maybe anyway.....

Following my last post I had a run of 32 hours in NSR. Then into affib which only took 4 hours to convert back to NSR. Since that conversion I have been in NSR without a blip.

So as of now I have been in NSR for almost 48 hours. Needless to say my attitude is much improved. It's amazing what a normal heartbeat can do for your psyche. I'm not so naive to think that I will stay in rhythm all the time but this is a far cry better than it has been for sure.

The Grind......

Otherwise known as work isn't so bad. I have a good counterpart in the control room. We get along well and he is a wealth of knowledge. The rest of our crew is outstanding as well. We are a pretty cohesive group all in all and have zero qualms about helping each other out so nobody gets left out in the cold.

We currently have a Control Room Trainee on our shift right now. Unfortunately he does not mesh with the crew. He had asked me before taking the job if I thought he could do it. I have no doubt he can but he has a long way to go to gain the respect of everyone.

He has an issue with work and already has a reputation as being lazy. And that does not go over well when you are asking people to do work for you. He is also the type of person that needs constant reassurance, or in his own words needs to have his ego stroked, which can be pretty annoying at times. He's got a long row to hoe for sure.
