I am totally neurotic and germphobic and nervous and easily freaked out, so working with children might seem like an odd choice for me.
Today I had to deal with lice.
It comes up once a year or so, and I never cope well.
I had to send people home, which means waiting around with the lice in a small room. I have to remain calm and not make the licee feel bad.
I think I did alright, I don't think anyone will be scarred for life
I have personally never had lice and I would like to keep it that way.
I always joke that if my children get lice we will have to burn the house down, since we have so much stuff, but really I am terrified at the thought of it. I realize it is a totally normal and not very harmful thing, but it totally skeezes me out and makes me sweat, and itch, just the thought of something crawling around on me laying eggs.
