    I never got the point of meetings- now that I am a few years out I might understand- its being around other people in the same sort of situation. I found it hard to relate though. The best for me was a more structured intensive outpatient environment. I did detox by myself, it was terrible, but I was grateful to be in my own home.

    I had a supportive husband who would come home and get me to at least go for a walk around the block- most of my days were spent watching "intervention" and other mindless series. Eventually my husband got me a dog- a reason to get out and walk, and interact with others at the dog park.

    Now I am in the final stretch of monitoring (I hope), I laugh, spend time with friends, and find joy in life. This is a far cry from how I felt when I was first caught- alone in the middle of the ocean, with no land in sight, and nobody around. I didn't think I would ever feel like myself in the slightest again- a broken person.

    This journey is not easy, but I am grateful for it. I have a better understanding of me, and of other people. Things will get better.

    You can do it. Many others have also. Hang in there. Life will eventually improve greatly. Hugs.

    The doctor has the credentials to provide orders, so there shouldn't be an issue there. Yes, you called the wrong person. It most likely won't be the last time. In the scheme of things, this is a tiny little boo boo and not anything to be concerned over. In fact, I'd say the doc handled it pretty well- called back, didn't rip you a new one.

    I feel for parents whose child is diagnosed with autism, it must be confusing and very upseting to hear this diagnosis. I wonder if when they are grasping for understanding, if it is easier for some parents to believe that their child's autism is related to vaccines, rather than their own advanced paternal/maternal age.
    or that they have an autistic child that has nothing whatsoever at all to do with their own ages.

    Conspiracy theorists don't care about science, factual data, or the sad truth that before the advent of vaccines, millions upon millions of people died from infectious disease.

    Don't put dirty linens on the floor because then the floor will get dirty. Yes, hopefully you have a linen hamper close by, but if not they're going on the floor.

    My entire Nursing Theory class. I thought I was the victim of an elaborate joke and kept side-eying people to let me in on it. It was like The Emperor's New Clothes. I literally made it up as I went along...and got an A. I would have spent time learning some actual science, but no....

    Had an instructor that was completely preoccupied with the way we made beds. I'm talking slightly obsessed with bed making technique. Don't get me wrong, I personally enjoy a neatly made bed, but I'm not gonna talk about nothing else but that for a week during our skills lab....

    Disturbed energy field. We talked in class about how ridiculous it was as we were learning about it.

    I once had to wait for class to start while the professor (Guess who?) walked around the room, purifying it with burning incense. She didn't like having classes in that particular room because she thought it had "bad vibes." So she insisted on the cleansing ceremony before we could start class.

    Fortunately, she was able to arrange for class to be moved to another room for the rest of the semester so that we didn't have to go through that every class period.
    Was she teaching nursing theory? did she believe in energy fields? Some of the nursing theorists ideas are utter nonsense and shouldn't be taught anymore.

    Nonesense and outdated - making nursing diagnoses!

    Do I understand correctly that he is asking you to waste with him a narcotic drawn up (not in the original sealed vial)? If so I'd be very wary of putting my name on this as you have no way of verifying what you are wasting.
