shifting problems

ive got a 94 7.3 with a 5 speed and i recently got the tranny fixed cause it was stuck in 3rd gear and wouldnt shift out. i got it back and the second time i drove after that the same thing happened again so i got it fixed again for free cause the guy missed something. after driving it for a few weeks its starting to have a hard time staying in 2nd. usually when i am shifting up from 1st into 2nd it grinds and wont stay in gear and i have to either shift to 3rd or wait till it grabs in 2nd. this is a real problem with a slow ass 7.3 mixed with fast traffic plus the embarrassment of grinding gears so its really started to piss me off. down shifting is usually better but not all ways, as long as i give it plenty of time to shift and grab it seems to be work fine but i feel its getting worse with use. im really not in a position nor mood to take it back to a shop with out knowing what it really is. if any tranny experts could help i would really appreciate it!!
