    Hi zoe,

    I feel that if I try to say your name out loud fully I might be mistaken as a functioning illiterate. But I know I'm not... explaining anything. But, that's just part of medicine these days. You can explain something to someone over and over again and still reach denial. Then, I know that talking is cheap, so I go find a good cookie, which makes about as much sense, but I eat it quietly.

    Do you remember the old "name game" song? so for Zoe (the name of my cat actually) it's "Zoe, Zoe bo boey banana fana fo foey..." etc. So.

    Good cookie - works for me

    Yeah, I know that cat. I mean song.

    Hello Thanks for the reply of saying hello! I live in Toledo, Ohio. Going into nursing school at the age of 45. I have been a paramedic for 23 years and wanted a change. I will be going into nurse practioner, and going into cardiac.

    Hey, welcome to the site!

    I really feel bad when I see all the threads from new people introducing themselves. There's just NO WAY that I could stop and post to each and every one of you!

    So I just wanted to say hey, how are you, and I hope you have a good experience!

    I'm 46, an RN trained in a diploma school in Maine (1981). I've done all kinds of nursing, my favorite being geriatrics, with Chemical Dependency a close second.

    I currently live in Maine, have a 17 year old son (who is just beginning driver ed, ugh!). I'm a Born Again Christian (3 years) but have to say that I am not one of those thumpers, LOL! How that happened is a long strange trip, I started out Catholic, tried all kinds of religion, no religion, etc. Then I ended up in AA (1985). I learned so much about tolerance, and the fact that God works miracles in EVERYONE's life, not just the "special" (wink) people.

    So along with being sober I've also had to deal with my mental health issues, depression/bipolar, anxiety, oh fun fun...

    SO - feel free to say hi, in this thread or through a private note! Happy you are here, lots of wonderful people! God bless! :hatparty:

    Feel free to post on this thread, and if I see you "around" I will say hello!

    Now what's a kiowa princess? LOL!

    I don't think you're crazy, I think it's marvelous!

    You know I wish I knew if there was any difference between RN school and LPN school but I would assume it was very similar. Let us know, eh?

    Take care!

    Is there anyone there from the uk?? I understand that nurses are much the same wherever you work or study but the curriculum differs and I would like to support and get support from some fellow uk nursing students so that we can empathise with the training and kick off occasionally!!!

    all you new nursing students wherever you may be ... best of luck because you`ll need it!!! the training is hard you have to learn to survive without any money, you get vomitted over have blisters on your feet, get spoken down to by doctors and some qualified nurses even!! and after all that there is that little old lady who thanks you for making her day worthwhile and always has a smile for her favourite nurse,, yes this one of the reasons why i am still here doing the final stage of my training because even though its extremely devastating to all other aspects of your life other than nursing, it is the most rewarding job i have ever done!!!

    Hey Dubs, hi! This link

    http://allnurses.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=124


    will get you to the UK nurses' forum. of course you can visit any other forum as well (the break room is fun!) but you may find people on the UK forum who can empathize with your specific situations!

    Good luck and hope you enjoy the boards!

    To Zoeboboey,
    Hey, I thought that I had a twin when I read your note. Except I'm 63, have 3 grown boys 3 grandsons, and 1 grandaughter. Have been a member of AA since 86. Dealing with Major depression before then. Started out Catholic, still miss my roots but get the spirituality from the program. but still wish the catholic Church would get with the program.
    Oh, forgot to mention, I, too, am a diploma nurse and proud of it! Graduated from massage school in 96. There is just so much to learn!

    Well nice to meet you! That's neat!

    There are some threads on nurses with mental illness/depression but the threads for nurses with chemical dependency don't get much activity LOL

    Hope you enjoy the site and I look forward to seeing you "around"!
