    Negative threads are great, we help each other by offering our ears (or eyes by reading) then responding. It isn't always what the poster wants to hear, and we may not agree with each other....BUT I really think we get a good overview of a combination of feelings, ideas from all walks of nursing and other areas of the country.

    We may have the same problem and through allnurses we can share, vent, offer solutions, say Get over it, or whatever else!
    I have to laugh because boy, oh boy, we have had some doozy threads, haven't we? I wholeheartedly agree with you...I try to learn from someone else's dilemma and I sort of store things in my head for a later date. I am surprized at how many threads I remember and have diverted me from some serious trouble!

    I feel that all and all, we sort of feel like family and feel comfortable enough to actually share our frustrations, triumphs and joys.

    The person who biked head into an oversized pine tree or an boulder. Ouch

    Nursing is hard, often frustrating and sometimes thankless work. Instead of taking this out on our patients, families and coworkers, we often come here to vent. It's perfectly appropriate. For your enjoyment, check out the "why I love nursing" thread for positive words and encouragement.
