If you went to work and fell out with a catastrophic stroke you will be simply replaced. We are replaceable. Your good health is not! Too many jobs too many jobs.
My attitude is this because I had a dear friend pretty much walked off her job. She was going through a tough time and only requested that she have an easier assignment. Instead of trying to be sympathetic they gave her a hard assignment and she refused it and left. We all have our moments and nursing you would think would understand! I hope you find joy in whatever you decide to do. Good luck
