There is a certain dynamic to life as a nurse, a dynamic which unless you have walked in its path, it might be difficult for you to understand. While I do not presume other professions don't have their days, here is an inkling of "My Days of Nursing";
Days when you almost hate nursing
Days when the patients are (seem) simply evil
Days when everyone and everything seem to work against you
Days where you seem to be overwhelmed
Days where you are almost ready to walk out the door without a backward glance
Days when you just want to sit down in self-pity
Days when you think to yourself: I.Just.Can't.Do.This.Anymore...
Days where you rue the day you registered for the nursing program
Days, heck when you wish you weren't grown up...
Then there are
Days, when everything and anything works out your way
Days when you know you have the absolute best patients
Days when the sun seems to be shining just for you and on you alone
Days when work seems so breezy
Days you feel as though you are walking on air
Days you feel extremely content and thankful for your lot in life...
There will always be days such as these: your attitude is what determines the outcome of your day. Do you choose to grip it with optimism that all will be well or do you choose to handle it with a great deal of skepticism. The choice is yours. See Rudyard Kipling - "IF..."
Fictional? I don't know!
