Mario!

  1. I'm putting this in a thread in Student Nursing because I don't want you to miss it.

    Mario, you have contributed a great deal in the short time you have been here. It disturbs me that you will no longer accept pm's or emails from allnurses and state you won't be posting here anymore. As other folks have stated above, you have a freshness and an enthusiasm, a genuineness that is unique and valuable. You have offered your differences in a kind and respectful way.

    I don't know what was said to you, but remember that whatever it was is just that person's opinion. I'm betting that person has issues of their own driving their criticism of you. Within every group you will find individuals who build themselves up by pushing others down and stepping on them. You will find this as you go through training too. Some nurses will be mentors to you. Others, sadly, as the saying goes, "eat their young".

    Take that which is good and let it build you up. Take that which is constructive and respectful and learn from it. Take that which is hurtful and destructive, and let it roll as water off a duck's back.

    You have a right to be here, Mario. Don't let anyone drive you away, Mario! Let Mario be Mario.

    I am here!!!! I am sorta embarrassed for just openly admitting I am not a full RN. I received several "not so nice" messages over some subject matter in some of my responses, and felt bad.
    I over-reacted. I respect this board very much. I saw how folks came to the board over stuff that was giving them trouble, so I vented too. Everything is fine, as mentioned in the last "happy-go-lucky-nurse" thread.
    I dis say some loaded stuff about marriage and NYers, and then I bugged when folks shot back at me in PM's.
    My cherry is broke (wink)

    Don't let them get to you. Message boards are for "shooting your mouth off", in a sense they are. People come in for a variety of reasons...for info.....to vent.....to get others opinions.....and a dozen other reasons. I don't recall seeing a prerequiset that states you must be an RN to be on here. Take care and keep on posting! We need to hear from you too!
