    I agree, Marie. Elk, I have a feeling you went to school a while back. It's not like that now.
    I did go to school "a while back" (~30 years ago). But I've taught in nursing programs within the last several years.

    I do agree that we should be held to a higher standard. For me, that means I am both personally and professionally obligated to be compliant with my treatment regimen and take care of my personal health.
    Ditto for me. However, that does not mean a nurse's private health information needs to be available to the public, which is my original point.

    We need to eliminate this unfair "witch hunt" of ones that have psychiatric illnesses. The medical field, of all places, should be a place of understanding and acceptance. Persons diagnosed with a psychiatric illness that is cared for with medications are no more a public threat than the person diagnosed with a physical illness. It makes me wonder if all the studies, statistics, and break-through care for the psychiatrically ill is even believed by the very ones that are in the field of this speciality. In our society a person that states he/she is mental ill is going to be an ostracized from the very ones that claim to want to support and help them. Until we accept persons with their unique mental issues we are going to continue to have professionals such as ourselves that hide in the closet and live in isolation fearful that their illness will become known.
