    Thanks for everyone's concern I have been extremely busy with being in nursing school and working a full and part time job. When I got the message I was in a bit of a hurry and just picked one of the avatars from the website.

    I hope you don't think it's because we're not being welcoming. We're just very cognizant of privacy issues here for a number of reasons: public website, nursing a small community, etc. Many of us have recognized people we know in real life here based on a couple of details. Anyway, welcome to AN and welcome to nursing!

    ... Also, legal name change is easy... You go down to the courthouse and fill in a form, have it notarized, and then get a dozen or so notarized copies to file c your voter registration, mortgage, selective service, college, IRS, Social Security, bank, driver's license, or whomever wants the official form; ordinary copy-machine copies go to your credit cards and random other stuff...
    Clarification: Name change rules vary from State-to-State. Sometimes even between counties within the same State.

    In some places, yes, you would be required to publish it, but guess what? Almost no one ever reads those notices. It's not like they are on the front page! They're buried in the classifieds.

    Keep working with your therapist and take good care of yourself.
