    Oh holy crap, now I am really laughing for the first time since I started fretting over this.

    Of course, ya'll know that her next movement will be totally unprepared for and I will have to consult you guys before I have the slightest clue how to respond!

    Can you see it? She'll approach me, she'll say "X" (any "X" will do") and I'll have to have her wait until I can post the scenario on my nursing board FIRST so I might have a freak'en clue how to respond!

    This is baaaaaaaaad!
    OMG

    Hey, I'm so happy that things ended on a positive note. Bless both your hearts.

    I think you did the best you could have done, considering the sensitive nature of the topic. It is natural for her to initially be in denial and angry. I think you opened a door for her. She now has someone to confide in and to help her with her problem. Brava, Bipley!

    Might I suggest (don't flame me, Tweetie ) that you suggest to her a female GYN? Holy crap is right, I'm picturing those old Massengil commercials..."Mom, do you ever get that not so fresh feeling?" Oh, nevermind. :stone

    Oh crap!!! You quoted me before I edited my post! I wasn't talking about her "movements" but instead, her next move. LOL

    This is embarrassing! LOL

    Might even be better if I hadn't referred to it as a "movement" (as in a BM) vs. her "move"!!!!!

    Yes, I agree. It is natural for her to deny anything. That is why I handled it as I would have had she been my patient. I just held her hand and didn't argue.

    I still feel bad about the entire conversation. Wish it was never necessary. She was totally humiliated. Sincerely, I'm not sure of any other approach to prevent her feelings, but it was true and I AM willing to help.

    Nope, no brawl. But a "Denny's Grand Slam" was to be expected!

    Crap, I'm LOL tooooooo much about this.

    Whoever wrote that this is a nurses way to deal with stress, I do believe I love you!

    Of course, you ARE male, right? RIGHT?????

    You know, I stayed up till 1:00 am waiting for the answer and Bipley gets on right after I gave up. I'm glad it turned out ok.

    I have been avidly awaiting the results. So glad everything turned out okay. Bipley, that took courage, tact (you must possess more than you give yourself credit for) and compassion. I'm sure the impact you will have on her life in being such a friend, will be beyond expression in words.

    Congrats on the happy ending/beginning.

    Seriously Bipley, this women is suffering emotionally and you reached out beyond the pettiness and are helping. I'm sure above anything else she needs a friend that isn't petty, judgemental, or thinking she's a nasty girl.

    That says a lot about you.
