Thank you to the 12 that helped on my assignment...could use more, but.....

  1. I wanted to thank the 12 out of 133 views that took the time to help me on my assignment. I greatly appreciate the assistance. I am writing the paper on Saturday night and pray I have enough and am able to do it properly.......Thanks again

    do i detect a little resentment here? perhaps a little sarcasm?

    Do ya think? You must be a sarcastic person as well to have picked up on that one,lol

    I love how students think sarcastic replies will get them more help in the future. Did it ever occur to you that some of us try to be helpful, but aren't married?

    Sincerely, one of the hundred plus nurses that viewed but didn't respond.

    Oooooh slap my hand like I am 12.......what should I say? Hey guys thanks so much for the assistance that only 12 gave? I asked nicely, but no one seemed to care so trust me I won't ask for it again......I have been visiting and offering my opinions for a long time now and really like some of the people here, but I was a bother to ask for help....I thought that was part of this baord.....guess I was wrong. It bothers me that I got so few replies out of 133 views so sue me........besides what do you need to make a comment for? You were probably one of those 133....doesn't really matter to me what you think anyway. I try to help others and now....well I don't know if I will bother too anymore.....can't get help so why should I?

    ONCE AGAIN THANKS TO THOSE WHO BOTHERED TO HELP!!!!!!

    Robin,

    Sorry I checked out the responses that you got - I was curious to see what others were saying... so I guess a few of those 133 views were from me - too bad I didn't feel like I should have replied considering I'm not married....

    Unmarried too- and don't think the temper tantrum was called for.

    You can count me as three views as I looked back twice to see how you were getting along.

    Perhaps a little more lead time would have helped- ya think?

    I think you're missing a basic ideal of ethics in research here anyway Robin. It's a pretty fundamental principle that when you do research, which you were doing by asking people to participate in a survey, they have the RIGHT to not participate, whatever their reasons might be, and generally speaking, the nurse researcher should not be rude following their refusal to participate.

    Robin, I am not trying to slap your hand. I am trying to make you see that maybe we aren't all lazy no good non helpful nurses. I would've helped you if I was married. I am not, so I didn't feel your questions applied to me so I didn't help you.

    I was just trying to explain that some of us do try to help eachother, and just because you didn't get as many replies as you like doesn't mean that we are all bad people. I have responded to many a students' questions including by email, I just couldn't help you with yours. Be as bitter about me or anyone else as you want to be, but I don't think most of us are that bad.

    Perhaps it was an issue some were sensitive about and didn't feel like sharing it with strangers. No matter how well we all think we know each other, we ARE strangers.

    Perhaps people were too preoccupied with the holidays. I never even saw your thread because I had other, more pressing, issues to attend to than this board or your homework.

    Doesn't really matter. This thread (AKA, your hissyfit) was uncalled for. Your post was very "BORDERLINE". Maybe you'll know what that means when you finish your psych rotation.

    Tsk, Tsk, Tsk. Robin I was one of the people that also viewed your thread and I chose not to answer it because I felt that some of it was nobody's business and, by the way, I am married.

    Have you surveyed your campus as well as this board? You need to emcompass as diversified a group as you can when doing this type of study, including live people. I'm sure that you would have gotten the same reaction from some of them. Would you have also "told them off" like you did the viewers of this board? I think not. Please consider this next time you need help and some people choose not to participate!

    I agree... A few of the views may have been from me, and I did not respond because I am not married. Maybe you would have gotten more replies if you had phrased it to include people that were engaged (like me) or people with girl/boyfriends. If you limit it down to only a certain group of people then you only get limited responses. And yes, you are being rude... we are under to obligation to answer your posts and can freely choose not to. And I agree with Essarge-- you wouldn't be telling someone off in person for not participating in your survey, would you?

    I haven't been on in a few days due to working on my pyschology paper, and I don't guess I should be surprised at some of the responses I have received after my outburst. I owe a great many of you an apology for my behavior...call it end of the semester stress(especially with my husbands surgery) or just plain ol PMS(yes we women use that excuse still), but I should not have behaved in the manner I did. I saw others get help on this board quite a bit, but felt no one cared that I asked for help( yes I know pity party). I had thought that I had given enough time to get the help....maybe I was wrong in that too.....I eventually had to redevelop the way I was going to put it all together. I used only womens views and compared them because....well.....men didn't want to do the survey or had their wives do it for them,lol. Defeats the purpose,lol. I used some people on campus, some family, and some of the responses received here. Now before anyone gets offended...I know some men did fill it out, but I did not have enough to get a good comparison.

    Anyway......that was just an update on the paper, and once again...an Apology to those that I took my stress and bad out upon.....I guess this was not a good time of year to go off those anti-depressants?

    Again.......I apologize to those I offended.....I could say I didn't intend to do so, but at the time......I did, and if I said I didn't I would be lying. Looking back though it should have been handled differently.

    Robin
