I've been a CNA for a year and a half and my personality has changed drastically. I dread my job, sometimes I cry when I get up to go in for my shift. It's constant stress. Away from the job I am moody and every little thing annoys me. I never felt like this before becoming a CNA. I'm exhausted, in pain most of the time, and all I want to do is be left alone and sleep all the time. I lost weight when I first started the job, but then I gained most back because the way I get through the shift is to tell myself I can go grab some Mcdonalds when I get done at 11:15pm and do nothing but sit on the internet all night. I'm too tired to cook, heck, I'm too tired to climb the steps to my apartment when I get home. I know I'm moody and feel awful when I am short with people outside of work, but I can't force myself to stop dreading my job. :/ I too wish I knew how to make it better.
