This may sound a little harsh, but you are NOT nursing material. You took a controlled substance without a prescription. And to top this off, your mother gave it to you.
Actually being a nurse is a dedication, a passion and commitment. Yes there are people who are born nurses and some have studied nursing but it is not in their hearts, so they get burn out easily. We must remember the reason why we are doing what are we doing. We have a purpose which others cannot do, and it is on our hands to be the best healthcare that can be.

Have a good read. Thanks
I don't remember. I was probably feeling kooky at the time.
Well, recently I had a student with extreme stridor, Sat in the 80's, anxious...The more anxious he became, the more stridorous he became. And wide eyed, and resp rate increasing.
I had called mom who said she was going to "try" to get here in 45 mins. (Ummm..No.)
So I called it. I have been a nurse for 30 years...I know kid's airways can obstruct VERY quickly. And once it's gone, it's gone. I was taking no chances.
When EMS got here, they were very dismissive of his symptoms. They didn't even put O2 on him. They hesitated about transporting or not. He was in the ER for a few hours. MD said "viral." He was given albuterol neb.
I have ZERO regrets in calling them. But I was treated as if I was an alarmist.
A child's safe airway will always trump the inappropriate attitude of an EMT any day.
