I don't know about you guys, but I'm not liking the way I feel.

    I originally posted a really long rant here, but have changed my mind. It was in a moment of weakness and stress that I went on and on, and now after reading a couple of times, I realize that it was best left unposted.

    Stress will do that, I guess.

    So I edited the post and took out the rant.

    Perhaps I'll just go play my drums and take it all out on the 'skins'.

    Be well fellas.

    Yes, nursing school gets to be a grind but we need to remember that there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Sometimes it's hard to remember to take care of ourselves when we are so busy studying.

    Yellow urine usually means low fluid intake. And as we know, when this happens the old sympathetic nervous system cranks up and we have renal sodium retention and increased BP. Then there's also increased blood glucose for preparation for that primitive fight/flight.

    Sometimes I go on evening walks to burn some energy and visualize things I'm trying to remember such as health assessments, etc.

    Thanks for the reply to my original rant. I took that down. I just felt as though it was better to have gotten it out and just deleted it than to have posted my drivel and let the rest read it.

    I'm aware that I've not been taking in my usual two to three bottles of water a day, but I keep forgetting to carry them with me. I think I'm also in perpetual fight or flight mode these days with all the stress I'm feeling. Like I could launch at any time.

    I'd walk but it's pretty chilly out right now. I think I'll retreat to the basement to bang on my drums for a little while.
