Thanks you all. I feel a whole lot better now anyway... it's amazing what a good day's sleep will do
and your suggestions and feedback help a lot.
I do realize I need to learn to laugh at myself a little easier
I get too tense at work a lot of the time. And Templar I think you're right; that's a good point and I should not have taken it personally since it WAS the other doctor they were really thinking of and not me- makes sense.
I'm trying to learn not to take all the "junk" that happens at work personally, because if I don't learn that, I'll have a lot harder time!
I really appreciate every one of you, your support and understanding. You gave me a LOT of good suggestions re: different ways to approach doctors and being a go between- seems to happen often in nursing, whether between pharmacy and MD for clarifying orders, or dietary, or two doctors or whatever. And I am glad/relieved to hear you all say you consider I was acting appropriately- I thought so myself but it always helps to hear someone else say it too you know!
Always helps to talk things like this out here
