new and old rn to site, hello

  1. hello,
    new to site but old nurse. 50 yrs old and class of 82, bsn. prior to becoming a nurse i was in fashion. which , if u knew me, you would be hooting.
    never posted to anything, but after all these years of focus, i question what the .... i am doing and why. even worse, i wonder why i made this decision in the first place. i remember sitting up in the stands during lecture, feeling a fire: and they talked of burnout .
    nope, not gonna happen...those wimps, we will show those older ones.

    i still feel flickers, but they are out so much faster now.

    there is no one else but another nurse you can tell stories to, we all have them.
    talking to another nurse is gratifying, but sometime u want to write that book.
    cant though, hippa and the fact u would preserve and respect their privacy, regardless of law. its one of thoses "duh" things.
    someone talk to me please thanks
