Oct 29, '06I'm so happy for you! I always love reading your posts and I imagine that if you're one tenth as cool on the job as you are on the forums....you deserve all the praise you're getting. Plus you're from my hometown (Portland) which makes you uber cool.
Oct 29, '06Dear Triage,
First of all, congratulations!

Keep up the great work, and keep on posting.

Oct 30, '06You guys are just too great!!!!!! Thanks!
I won't go over to the dark side, I told them my transition to management and admin would have to be over time because I like being a floor nurse! They agreed with this and know I am a proactive people supporter, and the more I know about everyone I work with..the better I will be when it comes to taking charge. (I had to laugh so hard...I instantly saw the first post about the dark side and I was like "Triage..I am your father..come join me" in my best Darth Vader voice! LOL! "Noooooooooooo" in my best Luke voice! LOL!!!!!!).
To answer another question, I think I am positive because I really had a very bad bout of burn out and depression. I got help for my depression with my PCP who is also my friend and knew I was not smiling anymore and very hermit like...NOT ME! I did research into myself and found some of the internal causes of depression that I was doing to myself that I didn't even know I was doing, and learned to stop that...and be able to control the outside stressors as much as I could. Basically I learned about myself big time, and the happy gal came right back out!!!!!
I found that I was a fun person to be around, a very naturally proactive realist who likes to do that extra to help others, and funny! So why mess with a good thing? I learned to appreciate myself for these talents and use them daily! SO far so great!!!!! Took time, but I love my job, my career, and my life now! (I also learned to choose my battles well daily! LOL!).
You guys are so awesome..thank you! I appreciate the positive posts here and will always endevor to be that fun, proactive, realistic, common sence, caring, compassionate, advice giving Triage you have come to know!
BTW...I will never be too busy to log on here...I get withdrawls after two or three days and have to log on even if it is for a minute or two! LOL!
Oct 30, '06Wow! I can only repeat what others have said, but congratulations! I hope you'll let us know how you enjoy your new role.
