    I did that for the first almost year that I worked. Then did it on and off. I plan on starting again tomorrow

    This will probably sound silly, but it works for me ...

    About halfway through my drive home, I pass several farms with herds of cows. I imagine dropping my problems off in those fields - where the cows POOP ALL OVER THEM.

    It's amazingly therapeutic!

    Annoying family member? POOP ALL OVER HIM.
    Resident who's not returning your pages? POOP ALL OVER HER.
    Co-workers who'd rather stand around gossiping than answer call lights? POOP ALL OVER THEM.

    As a new nurse I wrote when I came home. Then an old nurse told me to put everything in my cap when I took it off. Some days my cap had my cheat sheets in it. Other times just a name. I would throw them out the next time I worked. I did that for years then stopped wearing a cap. From then on it was loud music. Pink Floyd doing "Comfortably Numb" seemed to hit the radio often when I needed it. Somedays there was no relief except ice cream.

    Choose wisely. All can be addictive.
