ok , so i was in the ER recently for knee bursitis ( i didnt know what it was at the time i just saw my right knee get super huge and it hurt like hell) being type 1 diabetic i went straight to the hospital. ( it happened from moving in furniture to my house i somehow hit it or overworked it)
As im getting taken in i see the alot of nurses are not just overweight but obese. I have nothing against obese or overweight individuals but im curious because i would think that being in an ER ( alot of moving activity going on for the most part) these women would have some sort of cardio being on their feet for 12hr. and i hear alot of other nurses talk about missing meals because they have so much work so i know they probably arent stuffing their faces constantly from boredom.
im just saying being a nurse and all and when giving patient education dont they kind of look like hypocrites when they are telling a patient to take care of their bodies? i mean i would be a huge hypocrite if i was educating a newly diagnosed diabetic and im missing my right leg from poor care.
anyways i was just making an observation
anyone have any thoughts on this topic given the obesity rate in this country is skyrocketing
