Who are you guys kidding? We would all just use a 12-step program as an excuse to get together and yap our jaws!
Jul 15, '02I'm a 45 y/o chemist who's been unhappy with my job for years. I worked in Pathology right after college but left for more $$ in cosmetics. I decided a year ago to embark on a career change into nursing...no thanks to allnurses.com. I will hopefully enter UMass as a first sem Jr in the Fall of 03, get my BSN, get into a good critical care unit for a couple of years and hopefully get into anesthesia school.
This @#$! website is one of the main reasons for my career change. You've all inspired me through your triumphs and tragedies, tears and laughs and heart wrenching accounts of interactions with your patients. I know this sounds wierd...but I envy you all, and I want very badly to experience what you all are experiencing...the good and the bad.
Thanks for sharing your lives with me.....yer all awsome.

Typical night in my house..
kids to bed around 9pm..can see that look in hubby's eyes..that, "oh, yes!! they're asleep and I'm gonna get lucky!!!"..
The look in my eyes..."reflections of allnurses puke yellow colors"..in my mind, "gawd, when is he gonna give up??!!"
From the bedroom, "are you coming to bed???"..
From the computer, "uha, just gonna finish reading this thread"
twenty minutes later, again from the bedroom, "How many pages is that thread????"
From the computer, "I'm almost finished...." <go to sleep, please>..
Finally torn between what I SHOULD do and what I wanna do...guilt overcomes me. Reluctantly, I sign off and as I enter the bedroom, I hear snoring
NO, I'm not addicted!!!!
Jul 16, '02I'm not only addicted to allnurses.com I'm also a chalotte street cafe addict at femail.co.uk
Jul 16, '02Who's addicted??!! It's almost 01:00 here in Australia & here I am! LOL. This website makes you proud to be a nurse. Wish we could all meet one day & have a wizz bang party!! NOW, THAT would be SOME party!! :-)When it comes down to choices, sitting here with a "cuppa" & having a good laugh or, in some cases, cry, or doing some other, less fun, thing. Allnurses.com wins ALL the time!! :-)
If I die tomorrow, the housework will get done by someone, right? But they probably won't read Allnurses for me!! LOL
Cheers from "Down Under"
