NotMyProblem MSN, ASN, BSN, MSN, LPN, RN 2,690 Posts Specializes in Med/Surg, LTACH, LTC, Home Health. Has 37 years experience. Nov 4, 2016 Ahhhhh intimidation I've encountered that before...but are you single now? Yes, I am. Still have similar issues due to an ill (dementia) elderly parent, and issues with an adult daughter who is bipolar. Ironically, my daughter (while in 'one of her moods'), also stated a similar belief as you, in that she felt that I should be in a better place in my life since as she stated, "you're an RN". Impossible to live "the good life" when those near and dear to you are mentally unstable, yet stable enough to fly just below the commitment radar. These family issues having been falling on my shoulders in what seems like forever since I'm the only daughter to my mother and the only mother to my daughter....and I just happen to be a nurse. But, I maintain my PRN float pool status to allow for 'family flair ups'. Just this past April, I had to quit my full time position when my mom got kicked out of the nursing home. S*** doesn't stop flowing simply because one has moved up an educational notch.
