    How long have u been nursing?? Some things u just have to let go if u want to survive as a nurse. Stop letting other people control u. People will always have something to say because they are miserable and want others to be miserable too. What's wrong with looking young? Absolutely nothing! OBVIOUSLY it would be impossible for u to be 18 and be working as a nurse lol !?? throw that at them idk. Bottom line is u need to get tougher in this line of work.

    I'm curious. Home much time and effort did you save by not typing "you"? Text speak is against Terms of Service and it doesn't make you look professional or intelligent.

    You need to assert some dominance over the situation. If a patient really did harass you then another nurse can take over the care of that patient. You are not obligated to provide care to someone who breaches the relationship, but really you can't let that happen over trivial means. And example would be like time this drunk person was saying to my coworker "You're too fat to get married". Her husband of ten years died just a couples days prior. She was emotionally triggered and the relationship was compromised so another nurse took over.

    Though we have things we are sensitive about like our faces and bodies, we have to deal with how "we" feel about them. They should not hurt us like the statement from the drunk man to the nurse! If they do then we need to get help for that.

    You are letting worthless people get into your head, anyway, think about it like that. Honestly don't you think their obsession with your appearance is pretty creepy? And pathetic. You need to learn to take charge of this, if you have to demand respect from others then that's what you have to do. You shouldn't let worthless creepy people destroy your life.
