Go for it! I am a nurse who has Tourette's, no meds- too many side effects
. I have been a nurse for 19 years and have never been denied a job. I have never mentioned that I have this condition, because it does not interfere with my job. I was a med-surg nurse for a couple of years, and have been an O.R. nurse ever since!. I will admit I was petrified to enter the O.R., because it was my first love, but I have never looked back.
I scrub at the field with no problem. I will admit, you are constantly under the microscope,because everyone knows that there is something different. In my experience, I have found that medical personnel have been the most ignorant about this condition, and have made rude comments, but that never stopped me. Unfortunately, at the present my latex allegy is thwarting my career because I now have multiple food allergies that have been acute onset and it is going to end my career as an O.R. nurse. I know this is lengthy and my first entry, but I am honored to have addressed a fellow
T.S. individual. Good Luck!!!!!
