    When redirecting your daughter you ask her what she is doing and she replies perserverating ( which is one of my daughter ADHD manisfestations, she gets a thought stuck in her head and can go on and on and on). She then goes through deep breathing or puts her self into a time out to regroup.

    True Story- My sister and I (we are both nurses) were eating lunch at a restraunt. This lady walked by us on the way to the ladies room, she lost her cookies allover the floor beside our table and ran into the bathroom. We glanced over, looked at the horrified waitress, ordered her to get towels to clean up the mess and kept eating our lunch. We were actually giggling at the other patrons that were gagging and jumping up from their seats, while I noticed the waitstaff huddled behind us looking at us like we were the crazy ones. Still makes me giggle.

    I'm a nursing student. Yesterday in class we were talking about stomas and the consistency of the feces depending on the location; and all i could think about was when was lunch, i was starving. My husband is on a great diet he says. I also get the "what is appropriate dinner conversation" talk.... a lot.

    You stare at someone's veins while waiting in line at Wal-Mart. In the back of your mind thinking, "I'd get some awesome flashback on those!"You stop the microwave before it beeps because it reminds you of the pump you ran to 35 times during your shift.While washing your hands in a public restroom, you notice someone come out of the stall and not even look at the sink. Gross!You speedwalk everywhere.You carry sani-wipes everywhere!!!You take your grandpa to the doc for a check-up and he introduces you to the entire waiting room as "this is my grand daughter. She's a nurse. She'll be the boss next week!"

    You're at a family reunion with four generations of nurses, some of whom have nursed in each war since WWII, and we end up gathered together in a corner, sharing stories -- some gross, some funny, some real tear jerkers.
