This is so important though MQ...I really, really, really need you to get this and so I'm thinking perhaps it's time to take it to the *knuckle tattoo* level...

    You know that I've worked in academia my entire working life right? I'm actually quite familiar with the various nursing programs including the what? you're in a 9 month nursing assistant program at a community college? Anyway, here's the thing...

    I know...due to my experience...that there does not exist at any institute of higher learning in the United States of America a classified position entitled "Main Boss." And so who is this person really? Either an instructor, an instructor's aide or possibly a student teacher but usually these courses are taught by nursing and medical assistants that have been hired as part-time (not tenured) faculty. This is due to the fact that nursing and medical assistants can, quite often, make more money teaching than actually working in the field.

    Why do you think I would be against you using the absolutely ridiculous title of "Main Boss"? What harm could possibly come of it? You know, I'm just going to be perfectly honest with you. Most likely your "Main Boss" is entirely grateful not to be moving and bathing bodies...cleaning up crap...cooking and doing laundry...and getting paid better for it.

    This person is not your Boss. This person is in reality someone you've hired to teach you something. You are a customer...and this individual is getting paid to deal with you ...don't you get it? Why in the fuck would you apologize to this non-boss...that is dependent on you...that is required to provide you quality service as their livelihood? You are the Main Boss in this scenario and you need to make sure your subordinate is giving you their best work...not apologizing to them for being difficult my god.

    ^^What's funny is I'm not even remotely exaggerating here in spite of the fact I imagine you will think that I am. What I need you to get is you are worth the air you breathe and the space you inhabit. Do not put yourself inferior to anyone...because you're not.

    No, this is at the pharmacy. He is the pharmacist, I am a pharmacy tech. He is my main boss, but I have two other bosses who cover for him sometimes. I am no longer in the nursing program, and I am getting a 4-year degree instead.

    Oh no. Did you drop out of the nursing program? Are you now studying to be an A-tech? Everything I said to you still stands...I just now need to repackage it.

    I'm going to get a cup of coffee...

    You said certification...I just went back and read. You aren't getting paid are you? You paid and are "learning" in this person's pharmaceutical correct?

    Not an answer, nor do I know that you need them. I am not a professional. Just a friend with an idea. ADHD and anxiety can both look like each other and overlap, of course.

    I am glad it is looking good so far. Give it time and take it easy while you adjust to the new meds. Sometimes hitting a good balance can take a while.
