Hi. I am a nurse in the busiest er in my state, a level 2 trauma center. On New Year's day, I worked trauma all shift, then came home to find my husband dead. He had comitted suicide. I will save you all of the details.
I love my job, have worked er for over five years, and especially love trauma, and all of my coworkers are eager to have me back at work, but am concerned abouthow I will perform after such a personal tragedy. I'm afraid a trauma will trigger memories and affect my performanc.
Does anyone have any suggestions or advice? FYI - My husband passed away on 1/1/13, 10 days ago.
