    (((nurselovejoy))), boy, you've been having your share of struggles these past (at least) couple of years.
    i echo the others who suggest therapy.
    while your errors were seemingly benign, 4 errors in one shift...well, that's serious stuff.
    it is imperative you get professional help, so you can find the root cause(s) of all your angst.
    this honestly cannot be put off any longer.
    you've been writing about it too long, and that's only the stuff you've willingly shared.
    we haven't a clue about anything else that may or may not have happened.

    please honey...this needs to end.
    you deserve to feel better.
    call you dr, and start with him/her.
    s/he will give you any/all referrals you need.
    i fear that should you continue, someone is going to get hurt.
    it could be you, it could be a pt.
    but i'm begging you to get the help you need.
    you have a great support system here.
