    This should serve to remind all of us, new or experienced. I know there's days that I stand outside of an isolation room and think "I just have to run in and grab tray (or whatever) and be right back out", and have went into these rooms without protection, thinking I wouldn't touch anything etc. Just goes to show, it only takes a minute. Thanks for reminding me of the dangers! May your wellness progress be quick.

    Thanks so much for sharing your story!! Your story is NOT boring at all, in fact, its very powerful to the point that it brings to thought my own nursing career - eg. being strict in following hygiene principles to the "T". I am only a new nurse, and I'm only young too, and I have a long life ahead of me. So I really appreciate your story - its really shaken up my thinking. Thanks!!

    Just my -- All our actions have an impact on our lives -- some of the results are good, and some are bad. But if you are a child of God, then "all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." (Rom. 8:28)

    its good to see that you look at things from a positive perspective too.

    :rcgtku: for appreciating my story. Whem I'm writing this article, I just want to have an outlet to lighten the burdens I've been through.............I did'nt expect that many of you will appreciate it. All the messages and encouragements you have given me really means a lot to me. It helps me to totally forget and eradicate the pains I've been through. And it really feels good inside me to know that I had help in any way. May God bless us all.

    So very very true...you can simply not be too careful. I have been working for a cable company for two years while completing my prereqs. Sure enough, I fall off a ladder just six weeks before the start of my program and break my back . Now I am healing and hoping too be ready for January entrance into my program.

    Nice story, very inspirational. Pulmonary TB is highly curable, althought treatment is quite lengthy. A colleague of mine tested HIV positive 2 months after having a drop of blood stained urine (from a catheter) land in her eye. She never reported it, just ignored it?!?!

    hey thank you very much for your article
    It was very very encouraging
    though things like these not happened to me
    I was also delayed for my work abroad by some or other reson.
    But now I am in the process of going abroad
    and Hope I clear everything and go abroad soon.
    Hey by the way,
    I would hope and pray for your going abroad too.
    I think you can show the certificate of your medicines and that you are cured and can go abroad.
    Let me know too if you can go abroad or not..
    ok thanks once again for the wonderfull story of your amazing life in the nursing profession.
    thanks once again.

    Thanks for mentioning that. It's rare that we see nurses wearing protective eyewear even though we are told to in school.
