It's my first month here, and I was so excited to see the popularity of my very first thread "you know you've been a nurse for way too long when..." that I'm going to try 2 for 2.
In case I haven't mentioned this enough - my mom's a nurse.
And when I was a little girl, whenever I got sick and turned to my mom she'd say "you're fine" and leave it at that. Before I became a nurse I didn't understand.
She's my mom and
she's a nurse. Shouldn't she care that I'm sick? But now it all makes sense.
She dealt with sick people all day long- the LaSt thing she wanted to do when she got home was deal with her sick kid! I guess that saying is true "one day we'll all look back at this and laugh"
So what's you're story? Whether it be funny or frustrating, for better or for worse, nurses are a unique bunch, and I want to hear it
