Here am I back , still retired but stuck with emphysema & 24/7 oxygen still.Condition deterorating with difficulty combining walking & talking. weakness & fatigue playing catch. Ob the other hand I am always grateful to have been
a nurse wich has expanded my possibilities of passive entertainement
Enjoy who you are & absorb your advantages.
good luck .
Thanks Gwen for the info. Love all aspects of our mental
potentials/pssibilities & unfortunately also malfunction.
will check out the library.
you are absolutely right. a point I don't think I mentioned
is the all imperative important one on one session to assess
where your patient is & where you can reach him/her..
enioyed reading your posts plus you sound like you are right on top of
the whole depression situations.
enjoy your nursing skills
Finding an opening to motivate the patient into
accepting an activity that they could enjoy seemed
to me to be the most difficult task . Depression seems to engulf
any positive ideation or positive activity & derails all. Very hard
to communicate with a depressed client, so i find. Good luck
Am with Samion, not knowing this story at all.
WWhat is the accepted protocl for helping
addicted prisoners? Do nurses do their thing?
I retired when I moved to be closer to my daughter & grandkids. i was so happy being a grandmother I never looked for a job. That's how I became retiredd. then I became on Ombudsman (always wanted to do
that kind of work., loved being one. Had more time on my hands, took a spanish class for seniors, more time gave our local library 4 or more hours a week
Once a month registered donors to give blood. more time? Volunteered at the local hospital to answer lights.
It was so great the diversity the pleasures of being a nurse in so many different capacities.
Hope yu enjoy your retirement as much.
Good for you for using your retirement time as a tool to expand 7 express yourself in your travel & crafts . Sounds ideal.
I enjoy ed retirement as a bonus to be able to volunteer
a couple of hours a week in so many places.
Life is indeed very good
If I were a hospice patient (near future) I would first of all want
a nurse who can assess my situation & anticipate my needs mainly
discomfort/pain needs & for those qualifications I believe an RN
would be better than anyone else
If I had reached a plateau & my Vitals etc were predictable I do believe a non RN would have the necessary compassion to be very helpful. MHO. What do the rest of the nurses think?
It is a continuous pleasure & satisfaction to read what G-mo
wrote. Wish all nurses felt the same way in which ever departement
they work in. I know I did & the feeling sustained me these many years. I repeat it is so great to be a nurse.
Good for you for your awareness at who you really are or who you want to be Nursing is the very best at all facets of its dedication to
people who need help. Enjoy the process , all the way.
Of course you are right. May we never feel too depressed to
respond to therapeutic ways .
So sorry for the loss of a loved one to suicide, I wonder about the possible guilt they might be feeling not to mention the abandon & rejection.
Is suicide only a selfish gesture.? Death is so final & so sad.Hope you guys work through your grief & move on .
Suspect had a very valid notation about the prevalence of God as part
of comfort given. I can't imagine a person not rationalizing for himself
reasons for whatever his conditon is. accounting for predictable causes of death or disease has to be part of thier "raison d'etre"' .+
Embrassing science would help some I guess.
