This is like a virtual lounge for me, that I never want to leave. Each time I am about to get off of the computer, I will get a flash saying "New Email from Allnurses.com" and then, I hang out a bit longer to see what is happening, who commented on my posts, or what is happening with some of my favorite members.
It is therapeutic, helpful to my career, has saved my sanity and bridged nurses closer together. I feel that I am really a nurse when I can share my concerns, issues and triumphs here. And, that I do have a general understanding on the issues being discussed. Allnurses is my Internet family, and I love you all.
