Quote from swatch007
Based on my experience, they tend to be cyclically very moody ...
And based on MY experience, men can be just as moody as women from time to time!
I think, and everyone won't agree with me, that having more men in the profession has brought us into the modern times. Traditionally, in times past, women, and nurses, were the caretakers and nurturers. That's where the attitude of 'putting everyone and everything' before our own needs comes from.
It's a fallacy to think that only women can nurture. Men can be very caring in the role of nursing. But they, like a lot of women today, realize that they don't have to be a doormat for the profession to excell at it.
