The written word

  1. I have been reading with interest some of the longer threads where people have taken offence at some of the things that are said. I looked at it from two perspectives. The first is, if I had a bad day at clinicals/work and I was not in the best of moods. When I did that, I could find a lot of things that would offend me. The second way, if I had an absolutely wonderful experience/work day and found nothing that would offend me.

    The written word is a very powerful thing. I prefer to look at all threads as a "helping tool" and written in "human kind". That being said, I have found that in the long time that I have been a member of this board, I can always come away from it having learned something new. Either technical or more important, about the humaness of the healthcare profession.

    This is a wonderful board so to anyone who is reading it, don't get offended at anything that is said.......we are all human and all have something great to contribute.

    I agree with you essarge. It can get pretty dangerous to express a simple opion some days. But then, we really all simply human.
