    how wonderful it feels to read this article! knowing someone "gets it" helps me tonight. my feet and legs are aching, i am hungry from missing 2 meals, no break and forced ot (again)! i am also working on a uti because i'm getting older, and can't hold it like i used to. the resident giving me orders for a coding, septic pt. for 5-6 hours has no clue. and sadly, may never have a clue what nurses are all about. i am strengthened by this validation, and encouraged to go back to work tomorrow.

    A big thank you from this ER nurse. Nice to be recognized but we don't see ourselves as heroes. We just do what we have to do.
