Project help! need to develop a group for individuals with C6-C7 spinal cord injury (ages 19-27). Currently clients are inpatients in an MRU (focusing on hand skills and basic self-care, each client will be d/c, from MRU, at moderate assist to modified I in self-care). All clients have been in rehab for 3-4 weeks and are getting ready for discharge (within the next 3 weeks). All clients will be discharged to a w/c accessible environment and will have some assistance from either

Just posting to let you know the question was incomplete. Write me back. Sounds like an interesting project. Lots of life skill-y things to work on :)

It’s April. I completely lost track of my monthly themed posts.

Something I am working on this month is a caseload managing system - something to help me keep track of client goals as well as my time spent…

That’s April’s theme/personal goal.

"When I got my first cat, it changed me. There is something about holding a cat that makes your anger melt away. And if someone does something that upsets me—I have to remember my cat. I can’t keep my cat if I get into trouble.”

Is there an award for most awkward OT because yesterday a condom very clearly fell out of my backpack and my client handed it back to me saying um this is your condom and I don’t think she takes me very seriously, which I think is ok, I’m not here to be anything more than like maybe a bit helpful, but like !!!!! So embarrassing !!!!!

So much student debt

Ok, having depression or any kind of mood disorder fucking sucks. It can make even the simplest tasks feel overwhelming and impossible. But if you’re feeling shitty and you wake up and are able to accomplish any of these things you deserve a fucking medal. I know shit is hard but you’re not alone. Take solace in the little things. Just because they’re small doesn’t mean they’re not important. Little steps are never a bad place to start.
