I just want to know I'm not the only one. I broke down crying in class yesterday, not for any big reason but because one tiny reason proved to be one tiny reason too many. I'm in the thick of IEP season and I have some difficult members of the IEP team to work with; my kids are passing a stomach virus between them (so -- three days in a row, I've had to deal with kids projectile vomiting -- twice at LUNCH -- so -- nobody's been eating very much, to say the least!); one of my assistants seem to be completely burnt out and I can hardly inspire him to do anything, so I feel like I'm doing all the bus trips and all the diaper changes, which is not true, but I am doing the majority of them; my car broke down and has been sitting at a garage for a week while I try to drum up the money to get it out of that garage and send it to a cheaper one; and we have to move out of our apartment by the end of the month because we've been evicted. Yesterday, I got a phone call that the garage is going to charge a $25-per-night storage fee. This, all alone by itself, is not that big of a deal. But yesterday, it was one thing too many. I started crying, not in front of the kids, but on the phone in the office. I ended up asking one of my assistants to take the student I was supposed to be working with, while I got myself calmed down and mentally in a place where I could be effective working with him. Have you ever cried at work? I'm pretty embarrassed. It's rare that I cry and even more rare that I ask someone to take one of my students because I'm not mentally able to work with them.
