Yep, I knew it was coming sooner or later, especially since I had just jinxed myself by talking about it.

It's not something I want to deal with everyday, but I have to admit, it wasn't that bad. I think it will even come out of the pant leg of my scrubs.

Before clinicals today, in class, we had to watch more videos. It seems like the videos take up a lot of our class time since we need x number of hours spent in class. I enjoy most of the videos, and do learn a lot.

I also should say here that my class is mixed with a lot of kids fresh out of high school with maturity to match. They do spend a lot of the class discussing who likes who, and who's pregnant, and eeew, what if I have to touch a patient's butt, etc. They got the giggles when we had to watch the video on pericare. I'm trying to learn, and be mature (at least in class), and refrain from giggling at the word penis.

Today's video though, was so bad... it was on sexuality in people with dementia. I was fine with the concept that sometimes the people with dementia have sex with other residents, or masturbate, etc. But the video itself was just terrible. Anne Meara was hosting it, and setting up each scene (horribly acted depictions of demented sex crazed old folk). I don't know what I expected to see, but the scene with the man in the wheelchair sitting in the tv area who suddenly gets a chester the molester look on his face, and starts ripping his pants off to masturbate, only to be whisked off by a nursing assistant to his bedroom, where he has (fanned out on the bed on display) a collection of porn, so he can take care of his business... yep, that was too much. Now I see there is something more to fear than poop...
