    I say get your butt into an ER!! The ER needs good nurses with field experience and I would welcome you in my ER any day. If you are a good nurse, take care of your patients and do a good job, I could give a rat's patootie how big you are. Like another poster said, I could use you around here when the occasional recreational user tries to charge me when I tell him no narcs :-) Course, the doc is usually hiding behind me :-0

    Seriously, get healthy for yourself when you are ready and in the right way. Don't you dare let that get in the way of you getting in the ER.
