Why Do I Always Feel Guilty


Guest
 Share

Recommended Posts

One of my parents has emailed me to say she thinks her child may have had slapped cheek. I've just phoned all the other parents to let them know their children may have been in contact with it. One mum is pregnant and I know it causes worry for people but why do I feel so guilty. he was only contagious before symptoms appeared and I've got really good hygiene procedures and everyone knows and follows my sickness policy.

Does anyone else feel guilty all the time or is it just me :o

Oh yes - think it's a female thing!

 

My sister and I joke that it's our Jewish blood - my maternal grandmother was Jewish - we're both sure we were born 'guilty'! :o:(:(

 

But do remember YOU ARE NOT TO BLAME!!!

I'm a convent educated Irish catholic female with the word 'guilty' stamped on my forehead from birth. The weight of the world's worries sat firmly on my shoulders until I left home and country.

 

Joking aside..............like others have said dcn, if you weren't such a caring person this child's sickness would not be on your mind. Try not to let it get you down. These things happen and you cannot always control them. He'll be right as rain soon no doubt.

Realistically there was nothing you could have done any differently, dcn. As the others have said, you feel guilty because you care about your job and the children and families you work with.

 

Take care,
